I've enjoyed his reviews for many years, and this article confirms some of my own thoughts on blind listening. Thanks for posting this.

I just learned that since the 70's symphony orchestras audition members/ players by blind auditions.

Wow. Great article. Made me re-think my own biases a bit.

Pretty good overall. One common but obvious error: he doesn't distinguish between preference and difference.

One cannot say anything about sonic preference without first establishing audible difference. That makes his wire tests more likely than not a simple coincidence.
