Absolutely quality of measurement is directly proportional to quality of
results!  Observance can certainly play a part in it...but that's more
subjective as to how it effects quality of results.

Of course, and typically, in very detailed papers, this is mentioned.

Possibly, but not probably...

Agreed, but that has nothing to do with what Anthony said.  Your bringing a
subjective tone to the argument, where there wasn't one, when talking about
dynamic range...it's simply there.

Careful...you might get what you wish for!
