I can and I do hear the differences. But keep in mind that I've been a hi-fi
writer for 14 years and perhaps it's not surprising.

If, fr'instance, you are into wines, then you'll probably be able to taste
flavours within those wines that I wouldn't notice, and probably wouldn't
care about either.

btw, I note you say that "nearly nobody was able to dintinguish", which
suggests that some people were reliably able to tell the difference. Surely
this disproves your contention?
