There's no need to apologize. I've lost track of the number of times I've seen that claim made. Thing of it is I've never seen it substantiated in any meaningful fashion. It always seems to be someone that would prefer you trust their ears over tests that are orders of magnitude more reliable when properly done. Between trusting someone that can't tell you how they performed volume matching and a well done RMAA test I go with the test results each time.

The claims of audible improvement are most probably based on placebo and expectation bias. However there is the chance for the reasons I described there may be a difference. Playback changes were made in the early stages of the port on the basis of a series of tests. If there's another set of tests that demonstrate that there's been unwanted changes the developers could use those to make corrections. They can't do that using claims of "I hear this".
