Dear Massimo, all, I would like to add the following websites to the range of recommended places to look: http://www.iis.fraunhofer.de/bf/amm/products/mp3/ http://www.all4mp3.com/ They contain, of course, only consumer-level of detail, but they might be useful nonetheless. As a student I personally found the presentation of the "13db miracle" the most impressive and straightforward demonstration of psychoacoustics in audio coding. Of course that would require your students to have an understanding of the principle of SNR.
