RE: The only thing I would make reviewers 'blind' to is - PRICE of the gear they are reviewing!

Agree with one caveat. There's solid research that shows that perception of price affects judgment of audio quality, even that of audio engineers who consider themselves beyond such things. But that research shows that it's the *perception* that matters, to whit, listeners of every stripe rated a cheap-looking speaker more highly relative to three other speakers when they could see it than when they couldn't. So appearance has to be hidden, not just price.
