I mean really good speakers that really can fool imagination.

The question is not about distinguishing one sound from another. The question is about distinguishing of real sounds from reproduced.

Geddes found in his work on refraction products that sensitivity to these time domain artifacts increased with increasing SPL.

You might find his [Toole's] current discussions on LinkedIn illuminating. Short version: there's so much error in the acoustic field sampling and replay, the phase/waveform shape issues are lost.
Are they lost for speakers' listener at high spls?
