You actually have to look in AES11 and see that Grade 1 is specified to
be within +/- 1 ppm with a minimum capture range of +/- 2 ppm while
Grade 2 is +/- 10 ppm with a minimum capture range of +/- 50 ppm.
AES5 does give you the +/- 10 ppm minimum requirement for the source,
but nothing about the receiver.
