When binaural audio is mentioned we often think about headphone reproduction. The reproduction of binaural audio through two or more loudspeakers is, however, an attractive and widely-accepted alternative. Such systems are referred to as Cross-Talk Cancellation Systems (CTCS). In this tutorial we will cover the theoretical and practical fundamentals of CTCS, discussing their advantages and limitations. We will do that with the support of real-time practical demonstrations. We will also introduce some more advanced topics, like multichannel CTCS (i.e., loudspeaker arrays), multi-listener CTCS (i.e., for cinemas), and position-adaptive CTCS (with listener tracking).
