Great lengthy vid! Will have to finish the rest later though. If you haven't taken a cognitive processes class or have done some reading, I would encourage anyone to dive in! Quite interesting stuff!

"Double-blind tests are the gold standard in every field of science'

Correct.

However, only if you isolate very single factor except that, which people don't do, therefore makes most ABX testing audio wise invalid.
ABX testing is great only if you isolate those factors. e.g. the headphones must be at the same position on your head every single time, you must in the same position away from the loudspeaker in distance every single time etc.....

This is why scientifically valid ABX testing in audio much harder than in other sciences, which the vid doesn't address directly. Otherwise, the vid's fantastic.

I firmly believe in the theory of ABX however the way it's conducted by most people makes it scientifically invalid.

Anyway, 13-14 bit audio is where it starts to get :S for me. 16-24 bits = zero difference.

Thanks, excellent, pragmatic, it makes a lot of sense. (feel the fresh air). Everyone commenting on a Head Fi forum should be forced to watch the first 10minutes at least!

After watching this I can't help asking myself the question, with all the BS and 'pseudo science' around audio;

just how much does it cost to build a decent Hi Fi system?

I'm thinking, if you get your speakers to integrate with the room correctly, not too much!

OK I don't want to go off thread I'll start a new post.

Make that the whole thing! Watch it first, and then think about whether you want to post about the audible jitter differences you hear in coaxial vs. optical cables...
