RE: Preamp break-in

It doesn't matter which input you use. The main break in they are talking about is the signal caps/path and power supply parts. The input is simply a selector switch feeding the signal TOO those parts.

The only exception is phono input. All the others are electrically the same.

I am going to contradict myself and say this. I did find that teflon caps are an exception and do take a LONG time to break in. Mine took about a years in my CJ preamp and the sound did change a little.
