In this letter, we calculate the achievable information rates for the intersymbol interference channels with general signal-dependent correlated noise under the constraint that the inputs are chosen from a finite alphabet. The proposed method employs canonical multivariate density estimation techniques. This method is important in that it can be used for accurate estimation of the achievable information rates for magnetic recording channels with media noise, where higher order media noise models can be taken into account instead of the first-order model.
