  1. Break-In Period

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Are Receivers subject to Break-In Periods? I swear my Yamaha RX-A3050 sound better today than last week.
  2. Break-In

    SVSound
    I just received my Outlet Special PB12-NSD Sub & was wondering is there a Break-In period needed? Thanks!
  3. TC-P50ST60 plasma break-in

    HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    So a quick observation with my new Panasonic TC-P50ST60, I am using the 10 break in slides from the "how to break in your plasma properly" thread and noticed that the display gets quite warm running it all day. I put a small fan behind it to just move the air a little better and that made a huge...
  4. A Headphone Burn-In Experience

    Headphones | Head Gear
    I used to believe that burning in new speakers and headphones could not have a significant effect on how they would sound. Recently that belief changed, I was convinced I had witnessed a significant change in the sound of a set of new headphones after burning them in. On further investigation...
  5. Energy Take Classic 5.1 Break-In

    System Setup and Connection
    Merry Christmas everyone! I just received my Energy Take Classic 5.1 system with a Denon AVR-1613 receiver. I was wondering if I am supposed to calibrate the speakers using Audyssey before I begin the break-in process and then calibrate them again after I'm done, or if I'm supposed to just...
  6. Subwoofer break-in ?

    Creative Sound Solutions
    So I watched my 2nd movie with the sub last night and we heard some mysterious "popping" sounds coming from the cabinet. It kind of reminded of wood at a campfire. Every time there was heavy bass from bombs or the like this would happen. The dog jumped out of his seat and ran away, quite...
  7. Speaker break-in data

    REW Forum
    As I posted four months ago, I am measuring the "break-in" progress of a set of new speakers. I have heard many ideas of how to accelerate the break-in period by running bass through your new speakers (or even electronics!) on 24/7 and other aggressive methods. While I do believe that some...
  8. Break-in adjustments?

    REW Forum
    I am measuring the bass response of new speakers every month to determine how long it takes for break-in. When I compare graphs (below) it will certainly matter what the offset is between graphs. I am trying to see an increase below 40Hz but each graph is different because of changes to the room...
  9. Speaker "break-in" data

    REW Forum
    I hear/read very different accounts of the time it takes to "break-in" audio gear. I have a new pair of Magnapan 3.7R speakers and will be documenting the change in spectrum over time. I understand there actually is a break-in for this type of speaker because the thin Mylar film will become...

  12. Driver break-in

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I want to start my first sub build by measuring the actual driver I'll be using, so I have a Dayton RSS315HF-4 and a WT3, both new in the box. I gather from lurking around that I should break-in the driver for a few hours with music (since I don't have a signal generator for sine waves or noise)...
  13. tube break-in

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Question for those experienced with tubes: As I continue along in my audio journey, I've come to believe in break-in. Some components more-so than others, but to me and my ears, I believe in it. I'm sure there's break-in with new tubes. What kind of changes should I be expecting? I just...

  15. Do receivers have a break-in period?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I just bought a new Denon 2808ci. It replaced a Denon 3805. While I like a lot of the new features of the 2808 the sound seems to be lacking. I've seen elsewhere mention of break-in periods for electronics. Do receivers have a break in time? I could see how one could theoretically "break-in"...
