Some Neglected Audio Distortion Mechanisms
In addition to the familiar harmonic and intermodulation distortions, there exist various other mechanisms by which electronic equipment can degrade sound quality. Some of these are closely related to the familiar types, others are the result of direct acoustical interaction of the equipment, while yet others rely on the existence of two (or more) unrelated distortions in a system to produce an audible result. This paper examines some of these.
