It's a double blind test. It's designed to not judge which you prefer, but to see if you can correctly identify what is what without knowing if it switched or not. If the Neve is heads above the Pro Tools mixes, you should be able to pick it every time.

From Wikipedia :
Double-blind describes an especially stringent way of conducting an experiment, usually on human subjects, in an attempt to eliminate subjective bias on the part of both experimental subjects and the experimenters

We added the question in on which you prefer is just a way of letting you see what version you preferred for that loop....
