OK Mr expert, what do you have to say to the guy who invented ABX over 30 years ago and has done 100's if not 1,000's of them?
What about organizations ranging from university research centers to the Audio Engineering Society for whom DBTs are the gold standard for listening tests?
When you have obviously different pieces of gear
What constitutes "obviously different gear"?
All gear is different to me. Even two identical pieces of gear sitting next to each other appear to be different to me. One is on the left and the other is on the right. Can't you see that they are different?
and you cannot tell any difference using ABX testing,
Just a second. Are you telling me that no two pieces of gear sound the same, even if they are the same make and model?
I admit it, ABX and other forms of DBT can't find any audible difference between them!
Are you telling me that this is some kind of a problem?
