It was a long time since guruboolez's poll in 2009. I hope he is not angry that I copy/paste his poll.

The difference with previous polls is that this one is multiple choice. You are free to choose a few codecs. Like Codec A for DAP and Codec B for PC.

I would ask administrators, please, move topic to poll section. I could not create a topic in poll section for some reason.

What exactly are you going for then, when you say "look into the placebo effect?" This forum is primarily concerned with demonstrable differences in perception, rather than subjective differences ("it sounds different/the same because I think it should") such as those from the placebo effect.

My apologies - it was an attempt at humour that obviously didn't work.

(Although you're mistaken if you think the placebo effect isn't demonstrable or 'objective' - eg, people get just as cured from placebos as they do from actual medicine. But that's a whole other discussion :-)
