Stereo+C: An All-Purpose Arrangement of Microphones Using Three Frontal Channels

Until now, considerations for the arrangement of microphones using three frontal channels based on ITU-R BS 755-1 recommendation assume that three frontal speakers are set up in equal height and equal distance in front of a listener. Unfortunately in most home applications the center speaker is not set up as required by the ITU standard. In addition most of these microphone techniques are not compatible with two channel stereo. Stereo+C is an arrangement that allows to use normal stereo microphone techniques with an additional specially arranged center microphone. The entire arrangement is completely stereo compatible and uncritical in case of a non ideal loudspeaker set up at the consumer`s home.
