I think the *only* conclusion that can be drawn from this test is that, in the limited sample size of the test, and in a test that included a "controversial" switching mechanism, you were not able to discern a difference between the modded and stock units. Extrapolating beyond that to a broad generalization is inappropriate and not confirmed by the results. More testing is needed to discern if a larger sample size could delineate a difference, and whether elimination of the switch could influence the results.
I still cannot believe there are still people sticking up for TUC in this topic at this stage.
If by sticking on some silver tape and glueing some caps on the tops of some chips (as shown in the pics of the modded units) which is all something 99% of us on this forum can do at home DIY for about £5 and it 100% improves the audio quality of all audio on any equipment it is done to then why o why is there not 10000 you tube videos showing the mods and how to do it because if it really does work EVERY ONE would just do it by default. Just like in the modding PC world there are mods that you Just have to do things, things every one does to get the best out of your equipment. (I.e Lapping and stuff)
If there was documented evidence on this stuff TUC go one about people would do it, there is not any evidence anywhere that shows that what TUC does really works other than people that have spent the $$$$ and those people are never going to admit that they got ripped off its just not human nature to admit that you got scammed good and proper.
When I found the pics of the mods TUC does I was amazed how bad it was.

Unless it is *proven* that it had zero impact on the results, any conclusions based on this test need to be limited to the results of the test. Broader generalizations are inappropriate. You are certainly welcome to draw whatever conclusions you like. However, stating those conclusions as facts is not supported by these data.
Its because of this that it is 100% never going to be proven that any mods done by TUC do or don’t work.
Some one will all ways say something that will render the test null and void. Power, cables , signal time of the day, how long its been in use since new/mods were installed, switches, peoples ears, the music, the room, some one must of damaged a tie rap that’s holding the tinfoil on one of the cables and is damaging the audio signal in that 1mm gap were the tie rap should be because of RFI radiation, you were using nuclear power you need to use electric from a renewable energy source to get the full benefits out of the mods. So one was sat to close to the equipment and coursing interference.
And so on and so forth.
I am not picking on you craig its just the one's i happened to quote
