Loudspeaker listening room

The Listening Room was designed to meet the requirements of IEC 60268-13 and BS 6840:Part 13 Sound system equipment — Part 13: Listening tests on loudspeakers. The room provides standard listening conditions in which audiovisual equipment, hi-fi systems, loudspeakers or recordings can be assessed subjectively. The acoustics are similar to those of a living room in a house rather than the ‘deadness’ of an anechoic room.

The dimensions are 6.52 m × 4.20 m × 2.68 m high, and the volume is 73 cubic metres.
