Ever wonder who first uttered the dreaded words “Blind Testing” in the audiophile community? Of more importance is who will be the last person to mention this same topic in a audiophile discussion?
Unfortunately we will never know who is the first, and it is unlikely we will ever see the last. There is a very good reason why the blind testing idea will never go away - it is a defense raised only for argument’s sake only. And it is a brutally efficient defense at shutting down or degrading any audiophile discussion.
The case for Blind testing is a trolling technique and has nothing to do with Science.
The guy who first discovered this trolling technique has set the audiophile community back so much. Instead of sharing and discussing the love and power of music, we ended up in a broken community where people are split into various factions.
And this blind testing a myth!
It really is.
