Entries found for search: headroom

headroom : The amount of additional signal above the nominal input level that can be sent into a module before clipping distortion occurs. On a digital tape, input levels are set very low, -15VU to -12VU, to allow adequate headroom for occasional input peaks that might exceed -12VU. See dynamic headroom, dynamic range, overs.

thermal headroom : A term which denotes the difference between the nominal operating temperature of a power amplifier and the maximum temperature at which the amplifier will continue operating, i.e., before its thermal protection circuitry will shut it down.

dynamic headroom : The ability of a power amplifier to handle short bursts of power without overload.
