I received my copy of 'The Karp Segall Experiment' today. The music's not really 'my cup of tea', but it's OK as background music for me.

Using RME's Digicheck, I'm measuring -50dB noise at 81KHz...

What was the RMS loudness of the music itself?

I was discussing the DSD issue elsewhere recently and making the point that this very high ultrasonic noise-floor is likely to produce intermodulation distortion and thermal compression in the loudspeaker (which will make the IMD worse).

I'd bet that we could measure either quite easily.

I wonder how many people have actually burned out their tweeters/hf drivers with these recordings....
