Sound Quality Perception Test?

I just found this via a well know music industry commentator on YouTube:

I took the test using the following setup:

Mac Book Air >> AudioQuest Dragonfly Red with Jitter Bug and DragonTail USB cable>> Sennheiser HD540 (very old but in good working order AFAIK)

I was rather disappointed with my ability to identify the highest resolution version of each track.

In my slight defense I was doing this in a room with other family members watching TV and those headphones are open back so there was some background noise.

Is this a valid test? Are the files actually being rendered properly from this website?

Interested to hear others views on this.

Thanks Anton. You’ve really put in some dedicated listening time on this subject.

I’d absolutely love to get my hands on a Mobile Fidelity copy of Kind of Blue on 45rpm, but its out of print and new copies are being offered around the £70 mark in UK. I can see the Classic Records versions are selling for much higher than this.

I have the Dire Straits Brothers in Arms MFSL 45 rpm and it is wonderful.
