Low Distortionmeans that the amplifier is not creating new noises or signals based on the music and then adding them back into the music content. The NOISE plus the DISTORTION created in the first stage of the preamp is not coherent with the music energy and when added to the music creates a ‘veiled’ or masking sound to the listener. The veiling reduces the ability of your ear to resolve the intended musical passage, to individually resolve the instruments, ensembles, and complexity of the music. Again the timbre of the music produced is unreal, not intended, and in the way of the true musical presentation the artist offers.
The combination of these three errors disturbs the perceived sound space of the recording. These errors confuse your ears and auditory system with ‘stuff’ that was not there in the recording process.
