What's the bin width in the FFTs? Power supply (60Hz) artifacts look a tad high.

'Nothing less. The number 10 raised almost literally to the power of infinity.'

Can't remember if RMAA normalize everything relative to signal amplitude. I think it does.

The individual noise component amplitude is okay, but look at the summary number for noise level which gives a clearer picture of what happens when those add up. I'm guess roughly 100dB ish which is not remarkable but won't cause any puppies to die either.

The high number of spikes which are harmonics of each other suggest some digital noise or switching power supply.

Crosstalk is on the high side.

No THD graph provided but I can already see some 3rd and 5th harmonics in the DNR chart. So THD I'm guessing is really bad.

Frequency response wobbly suggesting some problem with your filter.
