I agree, that most of the spurious harmonics (including those 
mirrored down to lower frequencies) in this example are not a result 
of the ATRAC or MP3 compression. Similar effects can be seen in DAT 
recordings too. But additionally, the ATRAC system will be pushed to 
its limits by the large bandwidth of the clipped sounds. These 
effect are perhaps small compared to the original clipping.
