Is discussion of real world experience with different output modes forbidden?

Not everything can be reduced to ABX blind tests. Which woman is more beautiful, for example.

Not all ears are created equal. Nor is all music.

We don't elect our political leaders with blind tests.

Opinion matters.

Canar,
You have me at a disadvantage. Arguing with a moderator doesn't often have a good outcome.

I will just say that basing a decision solely on a listening test is not scientific.

You wouldn't be able to detect parts per billion of lead in drinking water by tasting it, but it is measurable and it does matter.

I understand science. I believe in it. I am a scientist. I am an engineer.

Our discussion above was primarily about the two different methods of implementing WASAPI. I assume that's not against any Terms of Service.
