Actually, it was me that pointed out unsighted testing by one person is no better than sighted testing.

Basically, because it isn't. Anything can change your perceptions and it doesn't have to be visual. It's why proper 'blind' testing needs a statistically valid number of participants. It's well known that one person can listen to exactly the same thing twice in a row and hear differences, just as one person can listen to two different things and not hear differences.

@MGTOW it’s really hard to sift through the forum looking for quotes that people said. I may or may not have remembered 100% correctly, and life is too short, but I did find this below where you say that double blind testing is a waste of time for hifi decisions

There is a regrettable lack of people who have fallen in the water.

The answer is in the name High-Fidelity, I have always wanted to hear everything , a full range, transparent sound  reproducing exactly what the artist intended.

There you go, back to the linguistic roots, as if they say it all. As I’ve said before, just do the same with WiFi will you?

I’m pleased, though hardly surprised, that “hearing it all” is what brings you pleasure (you didn’t quite say that: your “want” may be a purely intellectual thing). But it’s just your personal view and preference. Other, flavoured hifi sounds are equally valid, equally hifi. In all but your narrow interpretation. Equally valid.

Hey, at least they didn’t come from another hifi forum!

So you think you know more about DSP than the engineers who work for Grimm, a brand you stock? I can’t see this ending well.

I know very little about DSP but I can compare my LS1’s with their control unit and  Roon ‘Nucleus’ against the MU1 LS1 combination and I can’t hear any difference.

No I did not. 

Please remove or issue a retraction. 

What's all this about?  I remember someone showing a photo of a cat.  Seriously though,  from a purely scientific point of view, double blind, as anyone with google knows, merely means both participant and experimenter have no idea who gets what.  From a HIFI point of view-- very difficult --though not impossible.
