does this circuit, being that it's in the signal path hurt the music any amount?
I may be totally wrong on this, but if you were to use a voltage divider to tap off a few mV at the output, it seems to me this would have less chance of a sonic impact than at the input where any disturbance is subsequently amplified. Acuracy might be less since one leg of the divider is the speaker load which is a varying impedance; hence the reading could vary by spectral content even is average votage was constant- but then you said you were not that interested in accuracy anyway.
