...and that may be a big assumption, but aren't harmonic distortion measurements done at a single, constant-amplitude frequency? And aren't intermodulation distortion measurements done with 2 constant-amplitude frequencies? This is a far cry from the complexity of music, even accepting that listener bias is another complicating factor.
Good points. How about 1 watt input or 1/3 octave smoothing (low-rez, probably not used anymore).
Its seriously complex , measuring vs what we percieve , in reality we can measure quite a bit, thd/IMD won't tell us everything , even with a perfect Transfer function we cant overcome listener biases ..
Audio is science , music is art , it's a conundrum .....
Good audio is art
