New caps will need around 100-200 hours to break completely in. Patience Grasshopper...

Thank you so much Mofimadness. I thought there would be a time frame to expect but, wasn't sure how much to expect. I was listening yesterday to Dire Straights "On Every Street" and already what a change I heard! The sound was a bit more relaxed again, it was throwing a larger sound stage and layering was more evident. I also forgot that that the cables had been moved back into to their resting places and that they hadn't been in use for a bit and the Venom Defender is still brand new. Is it ever good to have it home again! Huge Kudos to ARC and all their support staff and Techs, they are the best IMO.
Disc read problem hasn't been addressed as of yet but, it also is not unique as it was also present in the ARC CD2 that I owned prior to this. I will call Kal and ask him later today and report what he has to say but it's just funny that the disc produced by the manufacturer would have trouble but, a new burned version is perfectly fine.
Thank you Jafant and Mofimadness, it sure is good to hear music in the house again with the CD3 back and it sounds a little better each time I play something! I called ARC about the selective disc problem and left a message for Cal and am just waiting to hear back now but very happy with the new Shuyata Venom Defender and the continuing improvements it's making. Happy and Safe Holidays I'll keep you all posted as I continue to get answers.
