OK Matt, you got me!

I have never participated in a double blind test. It seems to me, that if there are immediately noticeable differences, a double blind (A/B) test would quickly establish which variable was more pleasing.

It also seems to me, that in the event the participants were presented with 2 closely matched variables (audio component), there may be sound quality differences which are not immediately apparent.

Sometimes, I think, it may take some time spent living with the component before its superiority, though subtle, becomes apparent.

Sorry for the fingers in my ears, lalala ...


Enjoy the Music. Trust your ears. Laugh at Folks Who Claim to Know it All.

Closing your eyes during placement of your speakers is probably a good idea for your sound stage and imaging.

A properly designed flat response power supply would be hard to distinguish from another that is of the same quality or build, regardless of price or colour.

I myself played the Oboe, Clarinet, flute, Tuba and baritone. My parents played guitar Gibson, Fender, acoustic's etc. and the average guitar amp. Peavey, fender etc. is only 30watts. So a well crafted Amp. will out power those easily and you probably would notice a difference.

Though regardless of any of this thread, glad to hear that you have found your preferred product. If the tubes glow in the dark and look good even better. Your guests will enjoy it to.
Congrats

Brendo, in the biography of every rock star it reads, "He grew up with music in the house. His PARENTS played woodwinds and brass, HE took up guitar." How YOUNG are you be so retro?!

In the 6th grade, did you wear a 3-piece suit to school?

Upstream, upstream, Brendo, you go!

Thanx Bob I'm 36
Luckily my parents were the guitar hippies.

6th grade I was still a choir boy playing instruments so occasionally, had to dress up. Nowadays just a groupie instead of in a band.

You should reconsider. I hear that oboe players get a lot of action these days.

Yeah mine were the Khartago Mono's all juiced up with extra capacitance. I think I sold them to a guy down in AZ, I wonder how they are doing. frown
