Double blind testing is required. You are not even close to a fair test. Might as well add a few pints of ale and call it a party biggrin.gif It may be prudent to simply read up on:

Demand characteristics
double blind

Does not have to be in reference to sound. Humans are subject to, and are quite delusional beings. Any review of standard research protocol will show how to attempt to control for artifacts that masquerade as facts.

For your own personal information, I would suggest setting up Foobar2000 for ABX and test your own ears and perception.

EDIT I do not want to further derail this thread. It is taking away from all the work you have done. You might ask a mod to alter your first post and and change to
and they could also remove the non EAC posts from the thread. If you choose to run some ABX testing with Foobar2000 you could post in a new thread.
