this post is for Ethan Winer, Ethan, I would love to buy your book, as well, perhaps speak with you concerning my up comming HT set up (wall treatments). I would prefer to do this away from this particular thread however.
BTW, you have made mention to forms of distortions, I would subbmit that no part of humanly percieved audio is w/o distortion, after all, what is sound but nothing less then distortion that our human brains decomplie into usable ordered information.
