If you are using RMAA then you have the hardware and are clever enough to use a better approach. Why bother with %THD & %IMD when you can actually see the harmonics and noise?

A program like ARTA/STEPS or Audio Analyzer will allow yo to do FFT of your signal and really see what's going on. Then you'll have a much better idea of the noise floor and what the distortion really looks like.

Try it, you'll like it!
