RE: More confusion over pre-amps and amps for Maggie 3.6s

Posted by josh358 on February 2, 2012 at 19:43:07:

Judging by this thread on Hydrogen Audio, it's going to be a while before you see a valid ABX of DAC's:


The poor guy got trashed for asking a simple question. More than that, the posters who were trashing him seemed to be violating their own rules, in that they were claiming no audible difference on equipment that *hasn't* been ABX'd, and on the basis of measurements.

So you need an ABX test to determine that equipment sounds different, but not that it doesn't?

One thing I don't think you need an ABX test to detect -- hypocrisy.
