Results of a previous study suggested that it might be possible to reduce bit rates for stereophonic signals considerably by only coding information below 1.4 kHz separately for the left and right channels. It was hypothesized that, above the frequency, only one channel's information could be encoded without the spatial qualities of the signals being greatly affected. The purpose of the present work is to demonstrate that digital coding based on properties of binaural hearing could allow further meaningful reductions in bit rate in many practical environments.
