In AC specifications we are less concerned with absolute accuracy and more concerned with relative accuracy. This is not to say the reference is unimportant. It is just that we are typically interested in a relative number rather than an absolute. Distortion is always relative to the fundamental, for instance. While there is no direct conversion between the ...
