I would play the reference, and the listener was informed the reference was playing. I would then play 2 or 3 other tracks, which could also include the reference track. The tracks I picked were based on on the feedback I got from the listener. On request, I would switch back to the reference.

I don't even know what aoTuV is so I'm guessing regular ogg?Some info on aoTuV:http://wiki.xiph.org/index.php/VorbisEncodersif you want to know which encoder has been used on your files, download ogginfo here: http://rarewares.org/ogg.html and do:ogginfo file1.ogg

Johnston: Very useful post. Thanks for your contribution.
I also think I used too many compressed tracks and the song I picked was limited in terms of instrument variation. I think its therefore better to use less compressed tracks in the test but use 2 or 3 different songs.
