A dynamic range of up to 118 dB is determined necessary for subjectively noise-free reproeuction of music in an audio recorder with a white-noise floor. Maximum peak sound-pressure levels in music are compared to the minimum discernible level of white noise in a quiet listening situation. Microphone noise limitations, monitoring loudspeaker capabilities, and performance environment noise levels are also considered.
