do new processors need to be broken in.

hi all just got an integra dhc 80.1. it is brand new and im not sure if processors need a break in period.

if so, can anyone estimate roughly how long hours wise.

thanks so kindly all
Yes, the reason is, THEY HAVE ANALOG PARTS, on which efficiency and performance can be based almost solely on the amount of time that they've passed energy.

thanks for your response.

one important question tho, should i play it only at low volumes until it is broken in or can i crank it up right now.

It will likely sound somewhat different after 1/2 hour of use compared to being cold at turn on. The same is true of any electronics in your system.
Crank it if you wish, it isnt like a speaker.
