Distortion Meter and Audio Interconnect Tester
In this article for audioxpress, Ed Simon writes: "There seems to be controversy over what testing means in audio. Measuring a difference does not mean you can hear it. On the other hand, if my ears tell me there is a difference between two audio chains and I cannot measure it, that does not mean it is not there. Probably, I'm just using the wrong method to determine audio differences." And after trying to measure all sorts of things to compare which ones sounded fine - or not - he decided the next step would be to build a dedicated more sensitive measurement.
