Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

break-in real?

no question mark. parts that move and flex are bound to have brak-in periods of some length of time or other. long term listening is required and that for the indwelling capacitors as well.

being an experienced listener is a big plus here. as you listen, you don't need to be paying attention, the change will make itself evident. a/b testing here is useless as not everything can be that quickly observed. likewise, can be said of conventional measuring techniques as you would first have to know WHAT to measure.

differences in imaging are not refined with the aforesaid conventional measurements. these are characteristics that even change as a cable burns in.

nobody expects you to have blind faith. if you don't hear it, dont spend the extra effort to find these answers. save yourself the time and if you eventually hear differences, you're just going crazy by your own definition.
