The truth is, if all audio choices centered around double blind tests, no one would ever buy anything. The whole industry would grind to a halt.
The only blind test I took part in was during a digital cable shoot out using a SET system. blindfolded or not, no one heard the slightest difference between the most rude AV tri-wire, and five others of varying prices and materials. We were all getting hopeful we could save some serious money. When it came to the most expensive, blind folded or not, we all could tell this one from all the others. This was a total bummer to us. The cable was a Virtual Dynamics. The BB construction of this cable is radically different from most.
My point being, with my electronics, and speakers, every wire, and front end leaves it's personal stamp on the final product, like never I have witnessed before. These differences are not small.
We are talking about these kind of amps, and I want to impress on folks reading that if they want to make these speedy amps sound their best, then they have to search out the cleanest attending components.
Magnet wire produced the most definitive change for the better in my system. Come on over, I will demonstrate.
