RE: The 'your brain will adjust to the (bad) sound' is only true for novices..

I'm usually looking to hear "potential" early in the break-in process. If 48 hrs. pass and I don't hear a hint of magic, probably made a bad choice. Morrow cables ( IC's in this case) were a good example of this. Despite the insane claim of 500 hours break-in needed, I heard a bit of magic after only about 12 hours. Stuck with it and they only got better. And yes, I believe some of the "required" break-in claims of hundreds of hours can be somewhat of a scam to get the inexperienced to accept what they're hearing being better. Now to be fair, I have a friend who is constantly trying different designer caps in both his pre-amp and power amp looking for that "magic" cap or caps. Seems like he's spend months doing nothing but breaking in caps. Some have notoriously long and painful break-in periods. I use him as a classic example of the road I DON'T care to go down in this hobby.
