There is a general understanding of how the monitoring speakers should
mounted and how the control room should be designed for best stereo
performance. Similar practices are missing for multichannel reproduction.
In this work the general requirements for multichannel monitoring
conditions are analyzed and discussed. This includes the installation
speakers in the control room, treating of room surfaces for optimum
imaging, direct vs. reverberant field spectrum in the listening position
and directivity requirements for speakers. Measurements are performed
1:10 scale model and the results verified in real room.
