I have been seeing alot of graphs of THD and frequency response. Since I favor certain DAPs because of the details and separation to offer given the right headphones, I was wondering how to check for that? Is there any measurements for that? If so, please provide me to some links. I would like to see comparasons of many DAPs. Thanks.
How is hardware's sound resolution capability measured?

Keep this in mind:
You probably won't notice a difference between 0.001 and 0.1% distortion but you will notice a 0.5 dB accentuation of treble frequencies (even if you cannot detect it as such). To me it seems that the latter often is mistaken as higher resolution while in fact it's just a small FR variation - which are unavoidable with some amp-headphone combinations.
