RE: Very well

Yes.

To understand the complexity of the issue, please watch the video below. Monitor Audio acoustic designer Michael Hedges talks about the development of an AMT for their new Platinum II series, which provides greater surface area and lower distortion. When we created that video, I talked to Michael at length about the issue and he said that although he'd worked on getting ribbon distortion low enough, it wasn't satisfactory, which is why they went to an AMT for this range.

Back to the original point -- distortion is measurable and, often, correlates with what we hear. Dome-tweeter distortion at these frequencies is also problematic.
