726 1990]), with 8 kHz sampling rate but with 6 instead of 4 bits/sample, while the upper half undergoes another ADPCM coding with 8 kHz sampling frequency but only 2 bits/sample. The increased resolution of the lower, stronger spectral components is needed in order not to spoil the quality gain due to the larger bandwidth by a now more audible quantization noise; as the upper frequency components are much smaller, a lower word-length suﬃces to cover their dynamic range. The band-splitting and re-synthesis are realized by quadrature-mirror ﬁlter (QMF) pairs in transmitter and receiver.
A calculation based on the model spectrum of Fig. 11 % by an ideal 50 Hz high-pass ﬁlter. 4 dB show a much better match. Moreover, a closer look to the results in [Fletcher, Galt 1950] reveals that a larger bandwidth is indeed helpful also in the sense of intelligibility. In their report, they deﬁne an articulation index as A = −c · log10 (1 − s) = −c · log10 (e) . If ei denotes the understanding-error probability occurring when only the i-th of n narrow bands are passed, then the error probability when using n bands is found to be given by e = e1 · e2 · ...
It may, however, be reduced by dropping one or two bits of the lower-band signal; this is allowed since the adaptations inside the coder and decoder are based, sub-optimally, on the ﬁrst four of the maximally six bits in any case. The quality will, of course, suﬀer in the lower-rate options, but it is still felt to be considerably better than that of the narrowband ISDN transmission. 4 Wideband Speech Signals 19 Nevertheless, there used to be little enthusiasm for the oﬀered “better sound at the same rate”.
