I don't think we're calling you a liar. You're clearly saying what you believe. We're just saying that your results aren't necessarily the same as typical results, and there may be an error in testing that caused it. If you want to find out if that's the case, you should try to do a more controlled comparison and see if it comes out the same. Here in Sound Science, that's what we do... test our hypothesis to see if it holds up under controlled conditions and is repeatable consistently. If you are interested to see where your threshold is for lossy formats, I have a test I can share with you that includes samples of three different codecs with three different data rates compared against each other and against a lossless sample. It's really handy to figure out what you can hear and what you can't. If you'd like to try it, send me a PM and I will administer it to you.
