What does that have to do with results of DBT I mentioned?

It actually is good for you if you can not hear a difference, no incentive to spend on more expensive parts like the AD797. Better yet when you find a cheaper parts like the TL072 to sound the same. Too bad for those who do hear.
Must you attack people so often on forum?

As for Markw4's secret listening test method, will you be asking the same?
I was just asking for the detailed description of your listening tests; if you've never done any serious, rigorous controlled listening test, just say so.

I am interested in your approach to listening tests.

So that you can devise plans to smear me, a.k.a. damage control, because I'm posting things that can undercut your audio business?

In my opinion, you are posting things insulting the years of diligent work in improving audio by people like Scott Wurcer, Pavel Macura, Nelson Pass, Earl Geddes and others.
