Wading through all the pseudo science from hifi mags etc
Posted by: gramophone on 31 August 2018
On the site of an online accessories vendor saw a comment below from a happy purchaser of a £6 electrical contact cleaning fluid: "MP3 files now sounds like CD quality...Wow!!-!" You can find loads similar all over the world of hifi publishing.
Here's a link to a link to an article about biases: https://www.theatlantic.com/he...ine-from-bad/247240/
This article quotes from a study carried out at the University of Bordeaux (the study mostly deals with appreciation of wine though also 4k tv). Basically when cheap wine is secretly put into an empty bottle of good wine (top notch chateaux label on the front) wine experts to a man rave about it). Similarly, if we're told hifi wire A costs £1,000 and B costs £20 and you hear them in a test you wouldn't have a human brain, with all its fallibilities, if you didn't prefer A.
