Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: is speaker break-in real?


But replacing one sonic reference with another (new speakers) is also a factor, because surely you're not listening to music for the first time! ;)

If you're listening to music for the first time on new speakers, then yes... all perceived changes to the sonic signature are ALL related to break-in. ;)

A fun game to play is flip your old speakers back into the rig once in a blue moon - and take note of what jumps out at you. The more you do this, the more differences you can begin to identify. Then the fun happens when you expect these differences and on a given day they don't happen! ;)
