Never up, never in, CV. You have to try harder to FIND distortion.

I admit I don't know what PIM is either but I googled Passive Intermodulation Distortion. Not sure this is our PIM though...
FM is most likely Frequency Modulation in this thread.

I assume he has generated the signal in digital domain, and used Lynx L22 DAC output.

Anyway, speaking about grass, I mean dynamic range of 140 - 160dB. I know it is inaudible at sine. But the high order grass is an indicator of certain type of sound. Multitone with to many tones confuses the issue, 19+20kHz is okay.

You can hear harmonics 140-160dB under fundamental?

Everyone, and anyone who wants to know about the BLOWTORCH principles, limitations and costs, just look at the first 100 pages of the previous Blowtorch thread. Everything else, don't count on it, even though there are a few nuggets of wisdom, interspersed throughout.

Walt's previous paper on the other thread should be transfered over here, PMA, if possible. Very good paper, especially if you KNOW what to look for.
