Headroom

The difference between the normal operating level of a device, and the maximum level that device can pass without distortion. Music generally has wide variations in dynamic range; without enough headroom, you’ll find your gear clipping (distorting) far too frequently! There are a variety of other places where it is desirable to have large amounts of headroom (i.e. when mixing signals together); in general the more the better!
