Maximum slew rate typically found in music/voice

<< < (14/14)

Slew rate is relevant to distortion, which may increase with signal level non-linearly.
Harmonic distortion and intermodulation distortion are different ways to quantitatively measure the same non-linear behavior.
3rd-order intermodulation products will not be affected by a low pass filter, since they are close to the two test-tone frequencies.
Bandwidth is a measure of a linear system.

Slewrate is bandwidth plus amplitude.

There is a reason that bandwidths are often divided into two distinct categories: "small-signal bandwidth" and "full-scale bandwidth". The former is where slew rate limiting doesn't occur.

The latter is often called “full-power” bandwidth on data sheets.

Sigh. Quite right.

Brain failure on my part; shouldn't post when too tired.
