ianmedium, calm down and watch your blood pressure. Based on the measurements provided by Tyll alone I'd certainly remain skeptical on whether the differences would be audible to most listeners, and I say this as someone with years of interest in audio engineering. Now, whether Tylls measurements were consistent in methodology, and the specimens measured are representative is antoher story. How could that not be a given? This is 101 stuff to me. I get that the audiophilism you subscribe to embraces flowery subjectivism rather than trying to quantify what and how something makes for a differing sonic impression. I get that you're provoked that someone would be willing make distinction between subjective impression and objective measurement rather than throw the later out the window right away. I suggest you find post by other users which have a more credulous stance than me, of which you'll find plenty on this forum.
