Re: Objective Measurements to Compare Components Within a System

Clark is right, cut the fuss, and just listen with the HIGHEST quality source that you have. Keep the levels and the absolute polarity right, then listen, and compare. If you want, just name the components L and M or something like that. You can keep score like this as well, but don't revert to a compromised source, such as a DAT, or even a cheap CD or DVD. Use the best that you have: Clean CD's with really good playback, analog tape, if you have it, or vinyl records. SACD and quality DVD (A) might give enough, but look at the playback compromises in the digital playback equipment for potential limitations.
