careful there! before you know it you'll be preaching vinyl noise don't hinder sound quality, or higher THD in tube amps is meaningless, or [horror!] that crossover distortion is irrelevant. all this must be inconsequential trivia for how could it be heard at some -50db?Overdose said:I think that you are over analysing the situation. If you need to put your ear right next to a speaker to hear an anomaly, then clearly the problem is a moot point, as you will never be listening to music in such a situation. Personally, I am only concerned with the audible when it comes to music and systems, I have no time to obsess about inconsequential trivia. Others thrive on it though, as it seems their hobby or compulsion to do so.
