The actual test starts around 9:34.
It really shows you how good the SSL converters are.
It doesn't IMO for a few reasons. For one, because one guy still chose one interface and the other guy chose the other. Meaning, even after the 500 trip test there is no clear overall winner. This also reveals that even after turning the audio to crap in 500 trips, as one interface appeared to do, there will still be someone who prefers what that interface does in one trip (or 1/2 trip, see below), so go figure.

Even if you plug in via the jack socket of the combi input it's still going through the same circuit as the XLR. SSL 2 has proper line level inputs that bypass the pre-amp circuit (apparently). This is where the colouration in the iD14 comes from, by passing the signal 500 times through a mic pre circuit. It's pretty stupid actually, this is a totally unfair comparison. He doesn't even state whether the SSL had the line switch engaged. It's not a test of the converters at all, despite what he says.
