Back in 1976 we measured MAA (down to 1 degree) in noise (but not a cocktail party) in connection with the development of an acoustic traffic signal for the blind. Main result: If the signal is audible it can be localized. (Jacobsen, 1976). See a discussion of the Jacobsen (1976) reference in Good & Gilkey, JASA, vol 99, p 1108. regards Torben Poulsen, Department of Acoustic Technology Building 352, Technical University of Denmark DK-2800 Lyngby, Denmark Voice: +45 4525 3940 (office); +45 4588 1622 (Departm.)
