Other specs being equal, the better THD + N figure at low levels would indicate better performance in revealing detail. I think the data you have posted is much thorough than what other manufacturers care to provide, this is a very good start. Lets hop other companies can post more challenging data.

thanks soongsc
you can take a look at the datasheet of ucd and ice
or anyother class-d amp.
and take a look at the noise floor or THD+N at lowest power output.

perhaps you can get more about the smps+class-d

 do you caculate a dynamic range as mr. song?
No, and I think he didn't calculate dynamic range either! He calculated exactly what he wrote: difference of the highest and lowest level at wich you specified your amp. Obviously this is not the full dynamic range.

Quote:
 For example, if the ceiling of a device is 10 dB and the noise floor is 3 dB then the dynamic range is 4.85 dB, since 10 dB−3 dB = 4.85 dB (recall that care must be taken when adding numbers in the decibel scale).
This is from there too:

I agree with this. That part is a complete mess. In logaritmic scale dinamic range is difference, in linear scale it's ratio. The 2 method is equivalent, but not allowed to mix them.

 My guess is, showing THD+N in the lower level range such as 0.1W or even 5mW, if the amplifier dynamic range is good, noise level would still be maybe 40db lower than the signal, and thus have little effect on measurements.
Measurements of what? If noise is much lower than signal (eg. -49 dB), then distortion is unchanged, but if noise is higher then harmonics (eg. -120 dB), then THD+n will be obviously higher!

 Lower PSRR in class D amps would mean that the efficiency is high. Would this be a correct assessment?
No, there is no connection between efficiency and PSRR.

But it is dominating. 0,01 % THD+n at 200 mV (5mW@8ohm) means 20 uV "error". Do you think output noise is much less then 20 uV?

I have tested ClassA amps, and they have PSRR from 0 dB to 100 dB.

 our mcd is 71db,
Really? Then why did you say it is low?

Quote:
 take a look at this 1\$ chip, it have a 120db PSSR. not 65db also not 71db.
Yes, 120 dB from the positive rail, but continue reading! 105 dB from negative rail, at DC! PSRR at DC??? Who cares? It's only war of numbers, without any importance. Compare them at full audio band! UcD have uniform PSRR, while LM3886 starts to fall at 50 Hz. What about yours?

I guess I should have done the numbers before I spoke. So it seems like we really have to try and measure through the noise.

to me , large than 80db is good ,
please check here, Mr Bgt have test his MCD amp
and he is using a singal supply to drive his mcd-255

MCD-255 amp

i just told you the gain of mcd is about 10x
this is gain of our amp.
it just means input a 1v, you can get 10v at output.

have i told you about our open loop gain?
and have i told you that we have Decay at the input of power stage?

we have talked about at the phone,
because you are doing a job at china now , and not so far away from me , so perhaps we can make friends at real life,
but now , i don't think so.

because no one like others to post his personal talking at the Public .
so i will never talk with you again, and please delete my phone No. that i have gave you.

there are about 10 Foreign guys have gone to my lab when they was visiting or working at china,
we know each other at diyaudio, and make friends at real life.
or do biz at real life.
sometimes i drive them to club to have happy hours,
my English is better and better because i can talk with them at real life, this help me great.

most of them are very well know here.
but i have never post the personal MSG at here or another website.
because i know the Privacy right , i will not post their any MSG at public.

You could, if you know how, set up the AP correctly.
