Disclosed is an apparatus for processing an input signal, having a perceptual weighter and a quantizer. The perceptual weighter has a model provider and a model applicator. The model provider provides a perceptual weighted model based on the input signal. The model applicator provides a perceptually weighted spectrum by applying the perceptual weighted model to a spectrum based on the input signal. The quantizer is configured to quantize the perceptually weighted spectrum and for providing a bitstream. The quantizer has a random matrix applicator and a sign function calculator. The random matrix applicator is configured for applying a random matrix to the perceptually weighted spectrum in order to provide a transformed spectrum. The sign function calculator is configured for calculating a sign function of components of the transformed spectrum in order to provide the bitstream. The invention further refers to an apparatus for processing an encoded signal and to corresponding methods.
