In Reply to: RE: Break-in period for Furutech Rhodium connectors? posted by cdc on March 04, 2021 at 10:44:14
For those wondering, after 24 hours of continuous pink noise or watching movies about 1db of the 300hz to sub bass region has returned and upper frequencies 1K and up has chilled a bit and is smoothing out. This reminds me of what silver cables are like during burn-in.
What I find interesting is on Tidal tracks I know well and usually listen to at about 10am - 10:30 on volume pot now I am listening to at 9:30. I normally only listen to cables critically after 150+ hours on a cable burner, this time I was curious as time went by how burn-in would effect the Furutech rhodium connectors and WBT solder.
I will report after at least 100 hours and see what that does.
Rhodium-plated connectors take plenty of time to burn-in. After 150 hours the soundstage should open-up a bit more, with less glare, better detail, and more natural dynamics.
Rhodium tends to remain a bit cold vs. the warmth of gold, so a mix of both within a connector/jack interface tends to provide good synergy, with 'best of both worlds' sound qualities.
Duster, your description of "After 150 hours the soundstage should open-up a bit more, with less glare, better detail, and more natural dynamics.". That is what happened. Thanks
Now about 170 hours in and it feels/sounds to me that the connectors are still burning in. Your description of "After 150 hours the soundstage should open-up a bit more, with less glare, better detail, and more natural dynamics." sounds about right. I am not sure about the natural dynamics but transient notes are a bit faster, especially with instruments. Vocals feel a tad thinner or with less weight though.
