Enhancement algorithms for wireless acoustic sensor networks (WASNs) are indispensable with the increasing availability and usage of connected devices with microphones. Conventional spatial filtering approaches for enhancement in WASNs approximate quantization noise with an additive Gaussian distribution, which limits performance due to the non-linear nature of quantization noise at lower bitrates. This work proposes a postfilter for enhancement based on Bayesian statistics to obtain a multidevice signal estimate, which explicitly models the quantization noise. The experiments using perceptual signal-to-noise ratio, perceptual evaluation of speech quality, and MUSHRA (multistimulus with hidden reference and anchors) scores demonstrate that the proposed postfilter can be used to enhance signal quality in ad hoc sensor networks.
