"This study investigates the relative influence of two formal features of video games—image quality and sound quality—on presence and enjoyment. A 2 x 2 between subjects experiment was conducted manipulating image quality (high definition vs. standard definition) and sound quality (Dolby 5.1 surround sound vs. Dolby stereo). Results indicated that, while image quality had no effect on outcomes, sound quality almost universally impacted outcomes of interest, including several dimensions of presence and enjoyment. Implications of these findings are discussed."

p.79   "A very clear pattern emerged in this study—surround sound had a much more pronounced effect on player presence and enjoyment than two-channel sound or image quality. The only dimension of presence not affected was social realism"   Added by: Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard
