Yes, but I thought you were referring to real tests, not just amusing anecdotes.

Are you saying that the two fixed line outs of the cd-player sound different, or the two line-ins on the preamp?
No switch here!
You mean you were listening to the two cables simultaneously? How were you able to compare the two cables without switching from one line input to the other?

By the way, my mention of the switching noise was simply ONE EXAMPLE of how elelents which have nothing to do with the elements being tested can produce false positives and how it's actually quite easy to conduct tests which produce positive results and why anecdotes of a couple of guys farting around on a Sunday afternoon are just that. Anecdotes of a couple of guys farting around on a Sunday afternoon.

That's why those who conduct real tests go to such great lengths in setting up the test conditions and using proper controls to make sure that the results accurately reflect what it is they are testing for.

Peter is right, some people just don't want to believe.
And that's really what it's all about, isn't it? It's not about getting at the truth. It's about beliefs.

Well if your cause is creating "believers" based on anecdotes of a couple of guys farting around on a Sunday afternoon then your cause is hardly lost. People are blowing themselves up in suicide bombings because they were promised 72 virgins in the afterlife.

Now this is incredible.
EACH CABLE WAS CONNECTED TO ONE LINE IN IN THE PREAMP!
But both cables were connected to the same source.
A-B,A-B,A-B,A-B,A-B,A-B,A-B,A-B,A-B,A-B,A-B,A-B!!!
See what I mean?
I didn't know which cable was playing, and the guy was switchin A-B.

IF THIS ISN'T A BLIND TEST, THAT WHAT'S A BLIND TEST???!!!!

Oh, I see, a blind test is you hearing to a system.
A blind and deaf test.

Who told you it was a Sunday afternoon?
You don't know what you're talking about.
And I tell you this guy knows how to hear to a system.
He sells high-end every day.
But enough explanations for an anecdotic guy.

All

This thread is turning into pointless squabbles so I propose to lock it for a day or so so people can think their arguments through, then when it reopens, debate may be a bit more cogent.

Default A Huge Waste Of Time.....

Carlos,
If SE cannot measure it, then in his beliefs it is not possible, or you are imagining it.
It seems that you are wasting your time and blood pressure in any attempt to show him otherwise, but take heart that there are other members here who speak (and hear) the same language as you.

Eric.

Putting words in my mouth and making false accusations about me like this is just the sort of thing that will cause this thread to be closed down again and/or you and I ending up in the SinBin.

It was suggested to me that I simply put you on my ignore list. But it's precisly crap like this from clowns like you why I won't put you on my ignore list and why I won't let such things go unanswered.

I suggested in return that instead you be told in no uncertain terms not to say anything to me or about me, either directly, indirectly or through enuendo and that I would be more than happy to reciprocate with the same.

I think the Powers That Be here should seriously consider that suggestion. Either that or permanently ban one or both of us, because as long as you're allowed to go on with crap like this, there will be more trouble.
