Well the problem is that everyone hears a little differently and what a bunch of "educated listeners" may prefer will not be what the general public likes. Also, the wire, interconnects and amps testing has been done and people who claim they can EASILY hear differences in equipment can't hear any differences when the blindfolds are on. A mid price Denon or Yamaha AVR, a mega buck Class D amp or big Monoblock's all sound the same when blindfolded. The reason is that as Amir has shown many, many times, the difference between any of this stuff is measurable and it is so small that it is not audible to the listener. The speakers are the extreme weak link in the testing system. For example and I'm making this number up to show the concept. If you have a 1 millivolt difference between two items in the signal going to the speakers, the speakers will not sound any different as 1 millivolt is way below the speakers ability to resolve at that level. The speakers are like the big brute in the chain and overwhelm pretty much everything else. This has been known for decades yet snake oil marketing is what is used for most audio products. This so far is settled science. On ASR the measurements are usually (but not always) not audible. Amir does test product and then we see if it is junk, mediocre or great. ASR if full of good info.I wish some publication/site would get maybe five or six people in a room that have very educated ears and do real blind tests. That's where the rubber meets the road I think. With a very high end setup, test 14 gauge Home Depot wire against $30,000 interconnects. Test a new and frankly incredible $2,000 D-class amps against some 125 lb. A-Class mono blocks. Tube vs. solid state. I really appreciate the work Amir has done to find out what is real, I think another site that just did blind tests would be the whole enchilada. I grew up on those 80's stereo rags and looking back they were mostly full of it, trying not to fall out with advertisers; they basically said everything was great. Everything was not great.
