...If you were informed that you were about to hear an "MQAed" version of the recording and as an industry professional, you are fully aware of the claimed SQ improvements MQA is supposed to provide, how could there not be expectation bias?
...an expectation by industry insiders that they will have nothing but praise for any new technology or product. No praise, no more ad revenue for your audio rag! Or no more review samples to play with for those part time hobby reviewers who are not paid.
When has complete transparency in reviews ever been the case in this conflict of interest infested audio niche that corrupts ? Come on, some of these guys don't have a clue what I'm talking about because it all seems so normal to them.
...but declaring there was no expectation bias under the circumstances described strains credibility to the limit.
Re-read my post. I am very clear on the timeline.
"Next he announced the he was going to play the same file but with the MQA process applied.
I was astounded......."
Seems pretty clear to me you were informed as to what you were about to hear before you actually heard it. IOW, expectations.
