Default Ultimate listening test ... test your ears and audio chain

In addition to Mooly's thread
ULTIMATE OPAMP SHOOTOUT... Where you get to decide.

How to vote in this new threadCLICK HERE

I am opening a new thread where you can vote for your sound preferences. I have prepared 2 sound files in a very high quality, 48kHz/24bit, uncompressed, with level matched within 0.01 dB. The poll will be added soon. Please do not post any comments on sound quality and preferences here, just vote which sound file you prefer (or no difference heard), after the poll is available. Any technical details will be posted no sooner than the poll is closed. I can only disclose that the difference in HW used is not small.

Edit: for the reason that the poll is over, the links have been deleted.

Default How to vote.

To vote please click my user name (Mooly) and send me a pm indicating your choice.

The poll is hidden so that no one is influenced by seeing how others are voting.

There are three choices.

Blue
Green

Hi Sakis,

yes, please feel free to upload the files to your server. Sorry for problems, I upload the files very rarely.

Probably only "slow" option works for free download from filefactory.

I haven't changed anything else but the start of the files.

For people who do not know about foobar ABX, this video is very handy.

I think we should try and keep the test simple and just base it on listening tests

If there are no objections from anyone that has so far posted then I can tidy this thread up.
