Hi,ellisdj said:Hifi is sound reproduction with specific interest to sound quality.
There can be many forms of good sound - but good sound is still that - and average quality is very much that and so on. Listen to familiar music and you can associate to your own reference for that music - everyone can do that.
Blind testing proves noone can hear the difference between amps, cd players and even speakers so what does it matter what system either of us have got? The boxes are irrelevant because in a blind test we couldnt tell them apart. And you made your own stuff so how can I have previous prejudice against DIY? Lintwitz made all his own - noone thinks bad about him and his stuff.
My boxes are all AV - they cant possibly sound any good so you have nothing to worry about if you think were comparing which were not. We are just seeing if it can be done
Do you have a scientific reference where people cannot tell the difference with speakers?
Whatever the system, sound quality is subjective, and the comparison will not provide any indication that people can hear differences between cables, which is the subject of this thread.
If DBT shows that people cannot determine the difference between equipment, that is adequately specified, then perhaps, we are all fooling oneself. Perhaps we humans are not as good at discerning differences as we might claim.
