So, we can't measure objectively are odd order harmonics bad or good, if we can't measure how good is clarinetist?

The question is the effect of added harmonics and intermodulation products on a reproduction of the waveform of a clarinet.

No, the question was how people like odd harmonics. Clarinet generates odd harmonics, and almost no even ones. But people like it, if clarinetist is good!

My point is, the question are odd harmonics good or bad, is silly.

Went looking for the rectifier ringing in the DH120 so I could select proper snubber values. After all, the datasheet for hexfreds say "reduced snubbers" not none. It does not even have the original disk across it.
Hmmm. No ringing. A bit of general noise that is probe cable sensitive, that's all.

The Rehdeko measurements are IN ROOM, ROOM AVERAGED, not pseudo anechoic MLSSA. So be careful what you compare them to. I would not consider Rehdeko entirely my cup of tea, however they are rather enjoyable and will surprise you if you listen. It will (again) make you question the validity and usefulness of the measurements we usually employ.

One thing I remember, 'dek's had nearly as good squarewave performance as my Tannoy Red's and both are not miles off a Quad ESL. If you ever seen the square wave from most "HiFi" Speakers you would feel rather disturbed. I suspect that is why we commonly see square wave measurements of Amplifiers but practically never of speakers...

Ciao T
Then everyone would have quads ......

in contrast to a Rotel 951 with conventional rectifier, cap only snubbers.

Wife said no. Too big for the living room. No to the Sequals, No to the Vandersteins. I should have made the switch when I still had the old Ditton 44's. Now it is small monitors or else.

Well it's good to know, as Duke Aguiar says, you always get the last word:

"Yes dear".

5 mV, .5mS. on the Rotel, 10mV on the Hafler at I think 1ms. I don't have a storage scope, so getting a single shot is not possible. What it does show is the glitch on the conventional supply. It was less stable to trigger on as well. You might have noticed.
