Hey Metallo, just noticed you live in Bruxelles, I guess you know I'm from Belgium from visiting Soysoy's site, right?
Eh bien oui, nous sommes presques voisins, ancien Bruxellois j'ai dÃ©mÃ©nagÃ© dans le Hainaut... drÃ´le de rÃ©gion :bigsmile:
"Of course, I did not tell them but 30 sec. of listen was enough, which means when it is evident it is eveident"
I think I didn't make myself clear... I'm talking about a socio-psychologic/communication phenomenon here. Of course you didn't tell them! :bigsmile: - the fact that YOU know it's the verb that is playing, even if THEY don't know, leads you to unconsciously inform them (body language) that it's a "problematic disc" and as people living with you and close to you, they can read (more or less consciously) your body language and detect something's wrong...
One of the first thing you learn when taking communication classes is that "its impossible not to communicate". That's why any perceptive comparison that is not conducted with double-blind methodology can only be subjective and flawed. Editing audio tapes and vocal tracks is a great teacher in this matter.
Well once again I precise that I'm in no way stating that your harsh-sounding Verbs are just a psychological effect. I just like to point out that listening is by nature subjective, and I can't ever, ever agree with statements like "when it is evident it is evident" :disagree:
BTW, 30 seconds is far too long to detect tonal differences between two sound sources. If the difference is not audible immediatly, after less than 10 seconds the brain has adjusted anyway.... I guess you just meant "a very short time"
Sound definition and sound image differences are another story, these need of course more "in depth" and longer listening.... but tonal differences are either heard immediatly or not heard at all.
It's exactly like colours actually: if you first look at something blueish then at something greenish, you'll notice the difference immediatly, and if you don't because the two colours are similar, looking longer at the second colour won't ever help to make the difference with the first color. It's the immediate switch/contrast that will trigger the difference in perception.
Once again I wrote the former paragraph more towards forum readers in general than towards you, as I guess you wrote "30 seconds" as an image.
And NO, I don't think you're stupid, you moron!
