I think a double-blind amp listening test should be conducted by a group of blind people. I'm not trying to be funny. I truly think it would be interesting as blind people have a heightened sense of hearing.

But do all amps taste the same?


I believe you must have intended to say "But does all amps taste the same?"
Either that or the original poster meant "All your base are belong to us"

My apologies. I realize English is not the FP's primary language. I intend only humor.

According to that, you should be the definitive judge of all seating surfaces.

Blind musicians would be even better, but still, who's gonna pick-out the cd's and put 'em in the toaster?

That's why Matt Murdock is an attorney by day, Daredevil by night, and an Axiom contractor on the weekends.

I'm not saying you are right or wrong, but how did you come to this conclusion based on the information given by the OP or the specifications given by the manufacturers?
