Unfortunately even with the greatest objective, man made measuring equipment and testing methodologies, GOD happened to imbue each and every one of us with a unique set of monitors (ears, cochlea, anvils, hairs) and auditory processors in our brains (http://www.news-releases.uiowa.edu/2...903poremba.GIF
) making such discussions, at times, comical, and others, counterproductive, and, worse yet, moot
the ability to perceive and differentiate component changes is always an issue, but it is, or should be, a given in this arena ... perhaps a sticky should appear on each forum with something to the effect ... "Subjectivities are a given in sq analysis, particularly with respect to ic, pc, software, and other component changes, so please keep any such conversations to a minimum." As a disclaimer, I too am guilty of from time to time going down the primrose path of pissy argumentation but please (and this is not directed at you justin)
