Technology / Home Audio / Linearity: The degree to which a given transducer or amplifier can produce an equal response within its specified range. This is usually measured in db with +or - as small a number as possible indicating the least amount of variance from the desired flatness.


Technology / Home Audio / Distortion: Any departure from a true and accurate reproduction of the original waveform. It can include Noise, Clipping Distortion, Harmonic, and Intermodulation Distortion. These last two forms are fairly commo MORE

Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor ( Mosfet)

Technology / Home Audio / Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor ( Mosfet): A type of large output transistor used in the final stages of many power amplifiers, and commonly found in most car and home amplifiers today. These field-effect transistors are controlled by voltage MORE
