See, this is where the dialogue breaks, where we cannot even agree on what an "extraordinary claim" is.

What makes you think anybody should take your word at face value? I don't think you ever proved yourself as a "designer that listens", playing with an AKM demo board, and the JC's praisings, doesn't qualify you as a "designer", but only as yet another individual on the Internet that claims special hearing abilities.

Not good enough in my book, OMMW.

You personally don't sell but you've been shilling for the one who does.

You discredit DBT as shown in the quote below because the results don't support your agenda.

DBT is discredited by the fact that you need to degrade CD to 64kbps before you can tell the difference.
It is the bluntest tool in the toolbox for sound quality testing.
Keep your religion to yourself or F off to another forum where they pat each other on the back for not hearing any difference in anything.

No, I am very objective in my approach to audio design and modification.

I use the correct tools for the job. Would you measure a high impedance circuit voltage with a 1 k ohm per volt multimeter ? or are you another DBT worshiper ?

Bill, I think I would be interested to give it a try. Don't know if I could do it again or not.
