Sorry, but your definition of dynamic range is wrong ("all of them have a dynamic range of 0 dB (no variation in the RMS amplitude when calculated using integer number of periods)." It is defined as the ratio of the loudest signal to the quietest one. RMS is not part of the definition. It is impossible to have a dynamic range of 0, that would be no signal at all.Crest factor and dynamic range are fundamentally unrelated. For example, here are 4 different waveforms, all of them have a dynamic range of 0 dB (no variation in the RMS amplitude when calculated using integer number of periods).

The sine wave has a CF of √2, the square wave has a CF of 1, the triangular wave and the sawtooth wave have CF of √3.
