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.

...and you might simply be imagining that you're hearing differences, which does not in any way preclude it from being a very real experience for you. I'd almost say it's funny how humans will assign all sorts of qualities to something being presented to them if they know ahead of time what it is, except that it isn't funny when it causes real problems in getting to the truth.

Until you can demonstrate otherwise, please refrain from telling us that you hear differences. It really is that simple and there is no wiggle room. These are the rules, they apply in this discussion as they do any other. Their validity is not open for debate.

Getting "business" out of the way, happy holidays to you as well! smile.gif
