All I did was to play samples once. I was not guessing. I clearly heard the distortion in sample1. I repeat: the test is purpose made to prove that PUTs can not discriminate between samples.
No you are wrong. Ever been in a recording or mix session? ABx is constantly used ( the x only occasionally by accident but it happens) to make even very subtle changes. So how does a useless test produce almost all the music you listen to?
