Analysis of a quantizing system using triangular-pdf dither has
proven that the mean and variance of the total error are constant and
independent of the system input. It has been suggested
that, for purposes of real-time moment estimation, the nature of the
error in such systems is nevertheless essentially different from that
of an independent noise source. This hypothesis is investigated both
theoretically and experimentally in this paper, and it is shown that
their behaviors are equivalent for purposes of estimating
psycho-acoustically meaningful statistical quantities.
