Ever since noise was spotted and proven to cause problems for the transmission and detection of information through a communication channel, a standard procedure in the process of characterizing a detection system of the communication channel is to determine the level of the lowest detectable signal. In signal processing, this is usually done by determining the so-called threshold signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). This determination is especially important for the communication channels and systems that constantly operate with low-level signals. A good example of such a system is definitely the NMR spectroscopy system. However, to the authors’ knowledge, the threshold SNR value of NMR spectroscopy systems has not been determined yet. That is why the experts in the field of NMR spectroscopy were asked to assess, using an online questionnaire, which SNR level they considered to be the NMR threshold SNR level. Afterwards, the threshold value was calculated from the obtained data. Finally, it was compared to the existing rule of thumb and thus, a conclusion about its legitimacy was made. The described questionnaire is still available online (https://forms.gle/Y9hyDZ1v1iJoEbk27). This enables everyone to form their own opinion about the threshold SNR level, which the authors encourage the readers to do.
