A humonguous loss of dynamic range, not to mention an absolutely disgusting signal to noise ratio. In the case of devices where max gain is higher than unity, we should see a massive increase in harmonic density as well. We of course wont get a true square wave in digital audio, but we will get something that approximates it to our ears
