Aalborg University, Fredrik Bajers Vej 7, auditorium B3-104, 9220 Aalborg Ø

The Sound Quality Research Unit (SQRU) was established in 2001 as collaboration between AAU, Bang & Olufsen, Brüel & Kjær and DELTA. The aim of SQRU has been to advance basic and applied research in the fields of human sound perception, product sound quality, fidelity of reproduced sound, and instrumental analysis. SQRU was established as a five year center contract which has now come to an end. This seminar gives an overview of the latest research projects and results within SQRU.
