Default Re: DC Offeset Explanation

DC offset occurs when the average/mean of the signal is a value other than 0 which means the signal will clip earlier on one side (top or bottom of the 'center line' when viewing the waveform) and your maximum signal strength before clipping occurs is smaller. To get rid of DC offset the average of the signal is subtracted form every sample of the signal.
