Thanks Pano re; K7. I was too afraid to ask!

Esperado, you might enjoy "SPA" ("SOCIETY for the PREVENTION of ACRONYMS")

Cheers,
Jonathan

I bet your duck is very good it if it is anything like the quality your circuits.

The modern foodies don't really understand the bitter sweet sauce was not to cut the fat, wild ducks were very lean and gamey but to cut the gameyness. I hope you saved the liver and hung the venison well. I don't know if you ever tested your limits but I had some wild boar that was dry aged to liquefaction like a cheese, the waiter begged me not to subject the rest of the guests to its presence.

No I haven't tried anything like that. I did try something called colonnata after a tour of a marble mine this spring in Italy. The deer was aged nicely and fed well on acorns and my apples.

Jan,
Just from that short little clip it would seem that we have our own global feedback network working between the brain and our ears!

Thanks for the clip.

Meat as cheese you just have to extrapolate.

Scott,
And I thought that those bull Testies were brave enough when I was in Germany. I will say they were much better than the rabbit there, that was some gamey tough stuff. I think I'll stick with the quail, they don't live long enough to get gamey. Don't remember that I really liked Venison, I'll stay with a nice steak, grass feed if possible. But if you are ever on the Island of Kauai in Princeville do try the Bison, better than any steak you'll have.

And last but not least, the experimenters did not use positive controls.
Would you care to tell us what "positive controls" you think they should used?

IMHO, the Oohashi et al & Nichigushi et al methods are rather less stringent than Meyer & Moran. Only my $0.02 as a (pseudo?) Blind Listening Test guru

If one player had slightly poor low level linearity, what about the other players used in the test? Are you suggesting they were faulty too?

If this was a sighted test, do you think the "slightly poor low level linearity" would have affected the results? In the case of JC, I don't think so as he doesn't even have to listen to come to his conclusion.

Not that I would attribute such rare skills to anyone else on this august forum.
