RE: I think it's both /nt

I think you're right!

I know the speakers improved because my built-in HDTV speakers sounded better than the Thiel's when they were brand new. Even my wife thought the HDTV speakers sounded better. Now there's no comparison.

The Thiel's sound spectacular compared to my HDTV speakers. It took about a month, though. Then, the Thiel's just kept improving during the whole first year. I wouldn't be surprised if part of that improvement was due to adaptation. However, the Thiel manual states that they require 400 playing hours to fully burn-in.

Best regards,
John Elison
