Subj: [kl] "Dark" revisited - new battery gives CD players "richer fuller

Heh! Does this sound like a familiar argument?

Panasonic has announced a new flashlight battery which produces 1.7
volts instead of 1.5 volts. The company cites a test wherein 80
percent of musicians in a Japanese orchestra preferred the sound from a
portable music player powered by the higher voltage batteries.

However, in a different test, most people couldn't tell any difference
between the two sounds.

The newspaper didn't give details about the music played, or whether
more than one brand of music player was tested, or even what "most"

The claims did make me chuckle, however.
