Abstract Rooms are not perceptual objects themselves; they can only be perceived through their effect on the presented signal, the sound source, and the human receiver. An overview of different approaches to identify the qualities and the dimensions of “room acoustical impression” will be provided, that have resulted in psychological measuring instruments for room acoustical evaluation from the audience perspective. It will be outlined how the psychoacoustic aspects of room acoustical perception are embedded in a socio-cultural practice that leads to an aesthetic judgment on the quality of performance venues for music and speech.
