Hi guys. So recently I checked an RMAA test for the performance of a dac and I noticed that its stereo crosstalk value was around -57dB and RMAA rated it as "Average". So, what is the worst value of stereo crosstalk that is considered "acceptable"? Does stereo crosstalk degrade audio quality by a ton? Also, if the stereo crosstalk of a dac is say, 60 dB, the stereo crosstalk for the amp connected to it is 80dB and the stereo crosstalk for the headphone is 90dB, how do you know what is the final value of the stereo crosstalk?
