Why do we never see any double-blind test results showing all these wonderful differences?

Because, as an audiophile, if you attempt to make one blind test it will be the last, audiophile police will knock on your door and ban you from the cult. you will become tainted by skepticism and this is a mortal sin in their eyes.

Ah, yes, forgot about that.

Hold on, somebody at the door, be right back...

ooops, sorry to have brought such a disaster upon you home.

I've forget to tell you that all your 50% reimbursement on audiophile products, for posting positive subjective reviews on net, will not be taken into consideration anymore. Same applies for free samples send to you for review, you have 1 day to return them to the manufacturer and pay a penalty of 500% of their value. Citation for reparatory lawsuits will follow shortly.

I don't think this is about latency or skips but about more processes running that create more noise that gets transmitted to the sound card or through USB to an outboard DAC.

That said, a proper electrical analysis would show that instead of unblinded, audiophool reviews.

Right. And that analysis would first have to show that more processes mean more noise, and then that the noise affects the DAC in audible ways.

If those changes were real, they would be very different for different computers and different DACs. Do we ever hear the fish oil people discussing that?

I don't get how it is allowed for you to post here at all. You don't want to share info about how it works in a DIY forum?
It can't become more obvious you are only here for promoting your product with the latest posts.

Good observation, thanks. Reminds me kind of when searching for the "J" optimizer and google suggests a thread with discussing it as "scam"
