What would be considered a large (or medium or small) number of input neurons for a feedforward neural network?

While I am trying to do phoneme detection using inputs of 3200 sound-samples, I became curious how to categorize input sizes of a simple 3 layered ANN (input - hidden - output).

    $\begingroup$ Why does it matter? You don't really have control over the size of your input layer. It will always have the same size as the number of your features. $\endgroup$ – zachdj Nov 19 '19 at 14:07
  • $\begingroup$ I was just curious what the biggest feed forward nets were that have been successfully trained. And yes, I do have control in that I can decide the size of the inputs to a certain degree. $\endgroup$ – Skusku Nov 20 '19 at 17:15
