I think there has been a mere handful of double blind tests carried out.

 

For me it is worthy of comment that there have been so few such test on Hi Fi components over the last 30 years.

 

The people most to blame for this are those that claim to be reviewers and the publications that take money to "review" equipment. They have the resources and they get new equipment sent to them. However they never do blind tests (since the mid 80s) because, of course, the last thing they wish to do is upset manufacturers in the Hi Fi industry and reveal that their own reviewers cannot hear all the differences they claim to hear.

Is this the thread you're talking about?: http://www.head-fi.org/t/486598/testing-audiophile-claims-and-myths
