Like gregorio you gotta get personal, which usually means you have shaken faith in your argument. You stated you were leaving the thread before and you came back, probably because you are still exploring the idea.
My analogy was on point but you are so busy supporting your faith that you choose not to see it.
Not everything in audio is understood or quantified. It is an impossibility.
We are always making new discoveries. learning new things, coming to new understandings, developing new tools and better measurements.
Knowledge evolves, in every field , all the time.
Except for those who are so blind as refuse to see, to steal a quote.
Not everything that is observed can be explained. It does not have to lie as a fault on the observer.
My speculation as to why there is a perceived difference is just that, supposition. I am not making claims that is the cause and I have been clear about that.
I've got other theories as to why it might occur but, sadly, I just don't think many are open to the exploration of anything not already proven.
You may have forgotten but I heard no difference in the 2 formats. I am just not so willing to dismiss those that do hear a difference.
My problem is what Charles Altmann describes as "distortion". In an abx test I too can´t hear differences. But my everyday listening is not "in the abx mode", I listen subjectively to my music, and in this "real world scenario" wav sounds better. So what am I to do? Should I not listen to what I subjectively like better? Makes no sense to me, sorry.
