RE: Peaks

"Today it's still not widely known about the "silent unheard" instantaneous short term peak in the dynamics of sound events"

That's is probably true for live or live mic feeds but with recorded music it's easy to know where they are and it's easy to see them.

In the age of digital recording and CDs, we know that the highest peaks are all contained within peak output of the CD player.

If a system has a gain structure such that amplifier clipping cannot be reached even when the CD player is outputing it's max (recorded signal at digital "0") and the volume control is turned all the way up, then we know for sure that those "instantaneous short term peaks" are being reproduced without the amplifier clipping.
