Some, or maybe many, DACs go into mute when the signal drops below a defined level.

If the tested DAC is muted during the "between" signals periods then the test is flawed.

How do you know that the computer controlled testing is measuring a live DAC or a muted DAC?

I guess I would just trust that such a widely used application like RMAA or Arta does it properly
