Here is the key for the second round.
A: steel wool
B: copper
C: wine
E: mud
F: original

Coffee, Coke and Salt water were dropped.
What I had downloaded and listened to were 8 files. What are the rest then (D,G,H)?

Check back a few posts. I dropped a few files just to simplify the listening test. The key remained the same.

Thank you Frank.

As long as coffee survived near the top of my list and copper near the bottom, I am satisfied with my ears

Hey, which would you rather have in the morning - a cup of coffee or a cup of copper?

The experiment has been interesting so far because it seems that there is a slight preference for the original file. That's good, as it shows that maybe this DA-AD loop isn't transparent. After that, no real pattern emerges. Banana, potato, coffee, mud or copper - no one material dominates.

I will never forgive you for excluding beer from this experiment

I didn't! I had the beer all ready to test, but drank it instead. It made the experimenting soooo much better. It was not excluded, just used in a different role.

Will do a beer run for you on the next test.

Unfortunately not. This is a giveaway, in the solo piano portion, between the 2 sections of playing - comparing original, F, with copper, B - the highlighted section, 11.00 - 12:30 secs, has been amplified 50dB:
