There is an article in this months Stereophile where Jon Iverson bemoans double blind / ABX testing....the crux of it is he says that it doesn't accurately capture the differences between gear, only the person's ability to hear the differences so therefore it's not a valid test of gear.
Well, FREAKIN' DUH! I still can't believe that little ephiphany passed the editors. The way that I, and I'm sure that many who read Stereophile, interpret it is if a reviewer can't distinguish between two pieces of gear, doesn't that cast a shadow of doubt over the credibility of the reviews these guys are peddling??
What world do these guys live in??
Oh, btw, there is a pretty glowing review over the B&W 603S3, seems like a neat little floorstander for 1K.
