musichound sent me a PM explaining how he made a post and then realized I was joking, and then I guess he got rid of it. I would have liked to have read it, even if just for the fun of it.

It said something like. "No. it's off. Closing this thread blah blah blah. Unless another mod thinks that it should remain open blah blah blah."

thing is i have already intimated to doing double blind tests

i should not have to say i have but i have in the past. sacd vs cd was a good one back in the day. as is dolby vs dts.

you keep saying to use foobar is a bit of a non starter as why would i want to use a pc for a test when i already know the differance?

and to clarifi on the X1000 i would seach by album and play via shuffle. and then the dup albums would all be shuffled and i would listen to a low bit rate song, realise then pick the correct hibit one. think to delete said low bit rate album (but you cant delete albums till hooked up to pc, by then have forgotten to)

so if i wasnt clear

wheni have said i know the differance this means i have doen loads of tests in the past. the end.

but i feel it is wrong for all of you non x1000 owners to jump all over this thread with your presumptions.

Lesson learned: use more sarcasm, even if it seems completely obvious when you're writing it.

It's not the player that is at the heart of the matter, it is the testing method used to decide which format is which. The device in question could be any model from and manufacturer. If you said it was a Clip+ or a Phillips Go or anything else, the same people would be saying the same thing.

Did you read my post?

You can prove your point incontrovertibly by doing the foobar/ABX test and posting the results here.

@Marvin The Martian: yep

I'm with you on this one, bro. This whole thread should be moved to the ABi Golden Nuggets thread...

Ok, a vote by an angry Smurf can't be denied.

Kids, look for another forum to continue that high-bitrate-is-audibly-better stuff.
