Hello,

Some more questions. If you speak of Cantonese, are you meaning the dialect
of "Yue"?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yue_Chinese

Does anybody is aware of Cantonese full-band test signals that I can use for
the MUSHRA tests?

Does anybody have the five Chinese categories used for MUSHRA and MOS
scales?

Thanks

 Christian
