However, one tends to forget that the ears own response also generates
its own distortion, primarily because the amplitude vs loudness is
fairly close to an inverse square law function for single tones, and is
why the db was invented all those years ago.
Put the human ear into a multitone situation, and there can be some
detected distortion/aliasing heard even for tones coming from two
completely independent amplifier/speaker setups where there shouldn't
be any interaction between them.
I'm of the opinion that those folks who can lay claim to a golden ear,
either don't have as much of this effect in the first place, or their
ears have trained themselves into totally ignoreing that portion of the
distortion which is ear generated. I was once such, 50 years ago, but
alas, at 71, tinnitus has set in and while I can still hear bad audio
quicker than many younger folks, it is not as nerve wracking as it used
to be. One could say I've developed a tolerance for it I guess.
But, because I have been a broadcast engineer, now almost retired, for
much of my working life, I still need to hear when things aren't right,
so I can fix them before those emails start coming in. :-)
People having trouble with vz bouncing email to me should add the word
'online' between the 'verizon', and the dot which bypasses vz's
stupid bounce rules. I do use spamassassin too. :-)
