Several measurements were made concerning the detectability of interaurally and uncorrelated noise. These noises were chosen to mimic quantization noise resulting from bit-reduced coding of stereophonic signals. Very small differences in thresholds between correlated and uncorrelated noises were consistently found. To the degree that these data are generalized, this means that only about one-half bit more, on average, has to be used to code stereophonic material as compared with monophonic material.
