What Is Harmonic Distortion?

- Nov 13, 2018-

Harmonic Distortion: This is a very important indicator of the power amplifier. Harmonic distortion is a kind of nonlinear distortion. It is caused by the nonlinear characteristics of the amplifier during operation. The distortion result is a new harmonic component. The sound is lost to the original sound, and when it is serious, the sound is broken and harsh. Harmonic distortion is also divided into odd and even times. The odd harmonics can make people feel annoyed and disgusted, and they are easily perceived by people. Why do some amps sound irritating and feel tired, which is caused by large distortion. The biggest impact on the power amplifier is the distortion. Generally, high-fidelity requires harmonic distortion below 0.05%, the lower the better.
