It can be a long time--I've seen reports of up to six months (try googling Shahinian speaker burn in to see some reports). But as an owner of Diapasons--and previously Obelisks---I think it's worth it in the end.
You don't say what's wrong with the sound, and I can't see your system, but another point to bear in mind is that the amplifier is critical---it needs to have high current and damping factor to control the drivers.
Finally, if your concerns persist I would call Vasken Shahinian and ask his advice directly. He's not always easy to get hold of, but he's very approachable when you do.
It's a Hegel H300 amp, specs are here:
The sound is very schematical to my ears, I am mudding the overtones, instrument separation and ease of performance, especially with large orchestras, and especially at higher volumes. By "higher" I mean 50-60% loudness, higher volume is bearly bearable.
I am out of town, will do my best to call you over this weekend, between 11am and 2pm, is this OK? And thanks for offering!
