One does not need samples and digitization to check out the replay quality differences. Just put on the best test LP with sinusoidal signal that you have and run it: Check at 1000Hz and above.
Then do the same with a cd. No, you do not need an blind A/B/X test, you just have to listen a few times.
The CD signal comes through clearly without any audible distortions

Well it seems Cliveb disgarees. See post 165. And I think you do need ABX to back up claims about audible differences on HA.

@wombat: I didn't say that Cliveb said the Cd and vinyl sound the same

@greynol: The differences Cliveb highlighted indicate that he could easily ABX the samples so there doesn't seem to be the need to ask him to do so. And his opinions were based on careful listening to the samples under discussion rather than a test signal

As were kraut's!

So the forum should only require double-blind test results for claims about the sound quality of test signals?

The differences kraut highlighted indicate that he could easily ABX them so there doesn't seem to be the need to ask him to do so.

Let's back up a bit, do you deny that vinyl cutting and playback has inherent distortion that does not exist in digital sampling and playback, or do you just deny that this distortion is audible?
