...AND when listening to music which is harmonically structured, odd harmonics sound bad but even harmonics are often perceived as "richness".


At risk of sounding like a broken record, there are SO MANY things in addition to distortion that a generation loss test WILL RAPIDLY reveal the sonic infidelity of any component especially loudspeakers which by far ARE the weakest link.

I would agree with the value of your holistic approach, but that is not what Doug is promoting using the NRC lab. I'm still not convinced that single generation sine wave testing for any audio component really tells you much about the results with music. So speaker A's value is 1.2% while speaker B is 0.5%. And?

There's information, but not knowledge.
