Home Tube DIY Asylum

Do It Yourself (DIY) paradise for tube and SET project builders.

I don't doubt you can hear differences between 0 and 180 degrees

But I do doubt that the reason you can hear it is because recorded music is monolithic in phase across frequencies, regardless of microphone(s), instruments, rooms, recordings, etc. (It's not.) On my own speakers, I suspect the reason I cannot hear an iota of difference between phases has to do with the fact that they are huge dipoles from top to bottom frequencies. I double-blinded my wife and then teen-age son while I switched back and forth; they could not hear any difference, either. This was on music, not test LPs. To my mind, music is what matters. I'm kind of glad I can't hear a difference, one fewer thing to obsess over.
