Quote: An ABX is not purely subjective. Its purpose is to remove the subjective part. No, of course nobody should care about the competency of a failed test, as this is simple to do. The person that passes the test should be able to let others look at the data that was used. If I were able to successfully pass a similar test, you can bet that I would be passing around these files for people to verify that what I did was legitimate. I hear claims of science and facts, but when a scientific method is asked to be used, nobody wants to participate. I'm only suggesting this as in the past I've seen similar results only to find that the files were not being volume matched correctly, or they used an older version of the encoder, or had a setting used that would not create the best quality. Let us check, what could it hurt? My ultimate goal is not to try and discredit anyone. I'm trying to remain objective and to discover the truth for myself, with as much confidence and accuracy as I can.
