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.

Threads often get binned because they are useless waste of time, posts often get binned from otherwise useful threads because they often cause them to spiral out of control.

Our terms are crystal clear: any expressed differences in sound quality must be accompanied with double-blind test results.

It's fine to talk about whether something is bit-perfect or not bit-perfect but it is not fine to use that as evidence of differences in sound quality. Furthermore, justifying and/or qualifying such arguments based on whether you have adequate hardware is also unwelcome if it is not accompanied by objective, non-anecdotal evidence.

You can throw food or argue religious (read: non-falsifiable) beliefs elsewhere.

Unless your eyes can hear, you cannot account for false negatives in sighted evaluations.
