It is concluded that the proposed method has minimum phase delay or amplitude distortion. The main advantage of proposed method is that it doesn't require any advanced error criteria or matrix based transformation.
As in the two-tone case, the error signal in the main lobe spectrum is due to both third-order IMD, cross-modulation and amplitude distortion.
Close-in spectral regrowth, that is, regrowth associated with third- and fifth-order terms, is dominated by the amplitude distortion, while the regrowth associated with seventh- and higher order terms is dominated by AM-PM effects.
