Transients don't look like Impulses.

Two small hardwood blocks, clapped together (loud) and recorded in-room. It's a real snappy sound......

.....The mic is flat on out to the right end 20kHz, there's just not much content there in this little experiment.

And filter ringing? Don't see any...
Thanks and think know what you mean there :) for fun and research if you share a download via PM for that marked transient could see if i can replicate accurate those same Audacity graphs side by side a version where that transient is convoluted with that sythetic 3-way speaker impulse.

I have returned the unit. I don't think it can do better using the internal hard disk anyway.

Yeah, the most important thing we need is a differential test between WD Red, Blue, Black and Purple, on SATA 1.5, 3 and 6 Gbps, using standard and audiophile SATA cable... It's only a set of 24 measurements, really puzzled why the device wasn't updated to "true audiophile" standard.

It's all explained here https://jcat.eu/audiophile-sata-cable/
