That's pretty much my point.

And a green marker pen on the CDs - that makes a terrific difference - you can hear the increased detail and the top end clarity....
Would you please describe the procedure you used for level-matching the amps? Thanks.
Even worse is when he opinions are presented as 'facts' as in comments like "the difference is easily heard" and so on.
Yes, quite so. In fact, I regularly hear 'differences' in SQ in my system without even changing anything! This will occur, for example, if I am very tired but insist on watching the movie to the end. My system also sounds much more 'mellow' if I have smoked a 'herbal cigarette'. If I have drunk a little too much Lagavulin, it can sound a little harsh at the top end sometimes and so on.
Plain simple fact is what you say: our senses deceive us. This makes subjective opinions more or less worthless and reinforces the need for objective testing which removes all expectation bias or other human bias.
WRT to the cable - would you mind confirming that it is 'directional'? ;)
Does it render the spaces between sounds with the texture of inky, black velvet? If so, we may have a deal :)
I quite like the very clean spirit distilled from those tall Highland stills (Glenmorangie's are the tallest in all of Scotland you know) and it makes an excellent aperitif, but for the serious, after-dinner tipple, the Islays always win it for me. Oh yes, LOL, a 'which is the best single malt' thread would be sensational - at least we wouldn't come to blows on a forum, which I have seen happen in real life in one such 'discussion'.
Sorry for the OT post guys - now back to the 'which green pen makes the treble the airiest?' discussion.... :)
It does if the systems are transparent to the source. Of course, if amps sound 'different' to each other, you will never know whether the recorded Strad sounds different to the Nagyvary, or if it's just the amps....
Can anyone join in this bet? :) If so, I'm in too.... and yes, I'm happy to give odds of 4-1 too,
It's pretty obvious that live sounds and recorded playback of live sounds are different things. All you are saying is that somebody is able to tell the difference between Louis Armstrong's singing and Frank Sinatra's.
