I think Grokit has a point. We are in a typical web stalemate with both sides holding their views in a religious fashion. **Steve cannot show any DBTs that prove that LPs cannot be magnetized. **I cannot show any DBTs that prove that LPs can be magnetized. I can show some scientific measurements but of course these are rejected by Steve as being "not rigorous". So we can do either of two things: 1. Create a DBT to prove either Steve's or my point. This requires money, time and a faith in DBTs that I simply do not have. 2. Accept that subjective evaluations do hold value and experiment with non-magnetized and magnetized LPs. For me, I think #2 is a valid path if less scientifically "rigorous" than some here want. If we go with #1, then we will have very little content to legitimately discuss here.
