Both my education and my own experiences (with music as well as with humans) 100% align with what you're saying. I'm curious, then, why do so many people claim to hear things that shouldn't be possible to hear? And I'm sure most of them are not liers, for them their experience is true. Is confirmation bias this strong? And why doesn't it affect me the same way?DACs tend to measure well and a good deal better than the rest of the playback chain. which suggests that if there are audible differences, they should be very small and never come close to the influence that choosing a headphone or a nice album can have on our experience of music. just the way we place a headphone on our head will have more impact on the FR than replacing one DAC by another one.
