    The summed samples are available as a download. If you are asking about the source files, they are also available. Contact me via email.

    The methodology for the test was all very well documented and available online. There were testers all over the US.

    The testing rules are here:

    Man, am I a total tech nerd or what?

These are all negative numbers expressed in dB values, relative to the -144 limit of 24-bit audio. I should also point out that these are the results of single iterations, except for the worst, .1 and 1 which I retested to confirm the results were not flukes. In case of differences between L and R channels, I listed the worst case value.


    +/- .1 120.41
    +/- .2 124.49
    +/- .3 124.49
    +/- .4 122.91
    +/- .5 126.43
    +/- .6 128.93
    +/- .7 124.49
    +/- .8 126.43
    +/- .9 128.93
    +/- 1.0 121.57
    +/- 3.7 128.93
    +/- 6.0 126.43


    I never would have expected these results. I don't think anyone has ever done this kind of test before. Good idea to check for stressers on the math.

    It seems we have a winner. 1 dB would be second worst, but .1 seems to be marginally harder, or at least slightly more different.
