This conventions defines SRIRs measured with a compact listener containing an arbitrary number of receivers (R>1, such as a compact microphone array) and a compact source containing an arbitrary number of receivers (E>1, such as a multi-emitter loudspeaker) for multiple positions and/or orientations of the listener and/or source, in a single room.

The conventions is defined in AES69-2020 (SOFA 2.0).
