RE: Where are the numbers?

I have no problem with people reporting that they hear differences. My problem starts when people (often marketing people as Tom has pointed out, but presumably not in your case) start positing physical explanations for these perceptions. Often their explanations don't pass the smell test. In the case at hand, your theory hasn't even risen to a level at which the faintest odor might be detected.

I object to half-baked science, be it physics, biology, psychology or statistics. If you want to stay firmly in the realm of art, then you will get no complaints from me. But you are positing physics. There should be numbers. If there is no measurement equipment capable of the required precision there is still the possibility of simulation.
