So, in my earlier audio days, I would let guests run rampant with the volume.... I didn't know better. I've learned since then and now have an AVR with a max volume governor. laugh Now if I'm not around, no worries.

Anyways, the result of clipping is well known. Damaged tweeters usually. But what does clipping sound like? Here is a song I think gives a similar experience to what a clipping system sounds like. But in this case, you need not suffer high volumes or stress your system to hear the effect. The effect is caused by distortion in this track.

Enjoy (maybe) laugh

Artist: Crystal Castles
Track: Plague

Actually, i think it was BrenR who years back posted a variety of mp3s on the forums that demonstrated various things such as clipping, differences b/w sampling rates, bit rates, distortion levels, etc.
If someone can link to that post, i'll add it to my favorites. Assuming the links to his mp3 samples are still active.
(my apologies if it was someone else that posted the samples, ClubNeon maybe?)
