You say this is an input coupling capacitor. Is there a resistor on the other side of the cap that goes from the capacitor output to ground? If so, there is no need to leave the amp on for the cap break in. Simply connect the source to the amp and let it play 24/7.
Well, after the caps there is a 50k volume pot, if I can read the board correctly :)
The volume pot is fine. That means your input cap has a load on its output so it will break in just fine with an input source (like a CD player on repeat) whether the amp is powered up or not.
That's good to know! Thanks!
With 104dB sensitive speaker, passing any reasonable amount of signal trough those caps (they are at the power amp input, there s a preamp in the system) means EXTREMELY LOUD sound.
Now I know I can turn the preamp up and be at peace with the neighbors ^^
