Richard, Returning to your thought: ... >Thus, phase information does not generally carry information that can reliably aid a listener in identifying sound sources in a reverberant environment ... But. Ecologically, in a reverberant environment, a complex sound with high peak factor (or high grade of sinphasity) might indicate for the listener that the source of the sound is close. Generally, the less random phases are, the closer the source is. If so, phase information is relevant as a distance information. Disagree? Alex Alexander Galembo, Ph. D.
