A reference to what? I can discuss the science but you will have to ask audiophiles directly about their alternative notions about what is going on.

Sound is defined as a small/linear perturbation about a mean. If the perturbation is large enough for linearity to break down then we become unable to uniquely identify a part of the fluid motion as sound. This doesn't mean engineers can't kludge things a bit to handle distortion in specific limited circumstances but what is to be considered "sound" will be clear.

Boyles law is for an isothermal process but the sound waves in our rooms are much closer to adiabatic.

I need to think some more when not so tired.

Agree with the andy19191 point, but how significant is it?
