Extreme pure sine (0.0007% THD+N)

I use it to see how much noise is added to the bottom from the D.U.T. and
many of the generator tools do not have a 'like' low reference noise level.
Your generator have this very low low low noise signal ?
Obviously the gain of the player must be put at the highest level ie 0 dbfs.
We do not care the volume but the bottom noise :)

Double negatives don't mean what you think they mean ;)
Why wouldn't someone just generate their own tones using Audacity? Not that tones are terribly useful in themselves....

these are all generated with calibrated and certified equipment, we are not think to the tones, but focalizes the point to the noise and a bit of impedance in the various frequencies.

Yes it is a good starting point. Is it dithered? Can you recommend same in 16-bit 44.1 kHz format that I can write on CD, to be able to do tests on a CD player?
this is no dithered (pure)

to test the noise floor of a cd player I had not thought of but you can try to see what comes out...

Audacity is not very suitable to see these things.
One of the waveform file displayed with a suitable program to do these things, it is Wavosaur, you can see well the very low noise floor...

I have analog sources 20 dB better than that. Most digital generators digital files are good for 200 dB.

Please, talking about analog sources or digital source ?
analog like this ?

Regards my original sine source this is the 1000 Hz in ARTA with 'spectral density' active.

You seem to be saying that a wav recording of a generated sine wave, when played back on a separate system, somehow is purer?

Since there is obviously some sort of language barrier here, I am probably wasting my time. I am saying you can generate a pure tone wav file using audacity. Distortion and noise will be limited only by the player and the technical limits of the format bit depth and sample rate. Best performance when analysing will be when the frequency is an integer divisor of the sample rate - e.g. for 44100 you would use 44100/44=1002.2... instead of 1000Hz, etc.

Audacity as a spectrum analyzer is limited, but that is not what I was suggesting it be used for..

You not wasting your time. :)
In fact, just to save time I have created these files,
certain that can be generated each time and with any good software.

My method works with any good software player (or any device/application that support wav format) and over the speed of use
I also created a good 'reference' to work with the overlay.

So I can see 'how much' noise was added by DUT under test.

I hope of having explained a little better the mechanism.

Analog sources with distortion products at -150 dB. Check the low distortion oscillator thread on the subject.

FFT's can have various artifacts that are not in the actual data. Its in the windowing and number of samples processed. It gets involved to get good data. Ill look at one of your files when Im next in front of my pc.

My tests on your given wave files (18khz & Multiwave)... :D
