IMO, SS digital players should be left on overnight before any critical listening. Be a little patient.

You ain't heard nothing yet at 80 hrs. The thing about burn-in is that just when you think you are 100% there, then something magical happens at 100 hrs, then 150, then 200 and you keep wondering when the goodies are going to stop coming. They don't stop until they do. You may have to wait and see or hear. I have been caught out many times, albeit in a very pleasant way, with every component from source to speaker that I have ever owned. But I would say 200 hrs is the bare minimum.
Happy waiting and happy listening.
I honestly heard the changes described.
I am listening at the moment and can clearly hear the difference. I make notes and the sound is definitely nowhere close to the first 20 minutes or the first 40 hours.
If I am unhappy with equipment that does not sound like the demo unit I do not hesitate to return after break in period. I do not need to break myself in.
btw you have a great system
