In the range of a few seconds at most. Go beyond that and anything remotely close sounds the same. Or bias creeps in. Either way it isn't correct.

Well, in the absence of comments on the subject, I'll make a few comments...   The wonder of sound is based on the accuracy of sound. We hear real life with our ears in a very specific way. That has been determined by careful listening tests that establish the thresholds of human perception. However, a lot of home audio, particularly transducers, don't live up to those qualities. The closer they get, the better they are. It's pretty simple to determine whether a...
