Re: mp3 and the perceptual coding

Dear Massimo, all,

I would like to add the following websites to the range of recommended
places to look:


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.
