You can only hear differences using complex music, not some synthetic test. Those tests are invalid.
Where did you read that ABX tests are done only with "some synthetic test"? Simply not true!
But if you use complex music, then preference comes to play.
If you actually understood ABX testing you would know that ABX tests inherently avoid preference testing.
Therefor A/B test is not valid.
It appears that the invalid aspects you ascribe to ABX testing come from your own disinformation and misapprehensions.
You need objective measurements, problem is, we don't know what to measure.
It appears that you have conflated your limitations with those that apply to everybody, including people who understand audio far better than you do.
