How the FLAC do I tell MP3s from lossless audio?

"during the '80s and '90s, the average THD for a receiver dropped into the hundredth and thousandths of a percent."

They went beyond that, I remember ads with 0.000005% listed in big bold type. How would you even measure that? And some had audible IMD but that was not listed on the box so no problem. It was the marketing fad at the time. Like who could have the most drivers in a speaker (Bose tried to sue consumers reports for saying their 901 speakers were bad). Someone should be along any second to say how great 901s are...
