'Twas brillig, and Raymond Yau at 15/06/10 00:43 did gyre and gimble:
> +12dB(400%) is even larger than the software gain 150% of PA

Software gain of PA 150% = ~+11dB, so not as different as you imply.

I've explained the cubic mapping already, so please don't use arbitrary,
differently calculated percentages when comparing things. It's like
comparing apples to oranges.
