ianmedium, why are you so unwilling to do a simple test that only takes a few minutes?
And you call others narrow minded and arrogant despite you do not seem to know anything about the formats mentioned? Ohhh the irony.
A WAV and AIFF file containing uncompressed PCM contains exactly the same audio data.

That is the problem with people who's whole lives need to be neatly contained within pre existing parameters you will never be able to feel or see that which cannot be proved by someone else's invented hypothesis.
All I can say is there is a difference, can I explain in in numbers or theorys, no, I can't but I trust my hearing a great deal more than I would ever trust your judgements as your very narrow in observation of things that are outside scientific proof.
I really now am gone, it is not my intention to prove anything as I know that there is more to something than the sum of its parts, I feel really sorry for those who think that all there is exists only if it can be proven on paper, your missing out on such a huge part of life in thinking that way. Thank God that the worlds greates mastering engineers, record producers and artists don't think the way you do, if they did all we would have to listen to are records like Adel's!
You and your ridiculous claims won't be missed.
Thank God that there are not many people that "think" the way you do.

If you are saying you can hear a difference between them, that's a bit more than thinking outside the box. If you really are hearing a difference, there is something wrong with your equipment.
Or with his brain?
