Safari is truly 3rd rate, but all edits, rewording and spelling corrections have been sent into the ether ...

imported text?

I have had similar problems with text written off line and then copied into the forum editor. At least, I take it that that is what happened.

human hearing acuity

There have been quite a few tests of human hearing acuity, and they all confirm that we humans do not have very good hearing. The practical implication is that nearly all decent electronics are better than what we can distinguish by hearing, and cannot, therefore be distinguished from each other. A few restrictions apply, as I have said before: it requires a load independent frequency response, no clipping on input, and sufficient power.

The same conclusion does not apply to speakers, however, as these can have disconcertingly high levels of distortion and a frequency response that is far from flat. In room response is even worse, of course.
