Joey, we have been looking at this stuff for decades. Many tests are already done. The best overall resource is the CD rom of the entire AES proceedings for the last almost 50 years, including the 'Journal of the AES' Actually, the best stuff is in the preprints, BECAUSE they have not been rejected by the double-blind oriented 'referees' so loved by many on this website.
Wow, you learn something new everyday. I had no idea that the admission referees were blind, let alone doubly blind.
Thanks for your response and reference. I will try to obtain the CD rom. I agree that many tests are already well established thanks to the AES and various socities around the world. But, I will go out on a not so long limb and suggest that despite this, we have yet to see these tests developed further and used in the commercial realm to explain the dynamic performance of amplifiers TO CONSUMERS. Perhaps, (as you say) the lack of progress is due to DBT issues. There could also be competing scientific egos or commercial interests at play. Who knows...people are far more difficult to predict than electrons.
