Sony DVD/SACD Player Break-in Time?


Hello,
I recently bought a brand new Sony DVD player which can also play SACD's.
How long it should it take to break it in properly playing it 24/7?
Would the SACD, CD, and DVD sections have to be broken in one at a time, individually?
Thanks for your help!

Lanny,
Every CD/DVD player I've owned has come into it's own after two weeks of playing 24/7. My experience has been that redbook and SACD each require their own break-in period.
my experience is pretty much the same as Tvad's with the couple DVD/CD/SACD players I have owned. I actually paid more attention to the break in sound of my current player and noticed that every format seemed to need it's own "break in"...go figure...I don't have the expertise to say why. I pretty much listened to cd's and sacd's exclusively for the first couple weeks (and let one or the other format play on repeat 24/7) breaking in those two portions...and when I watched my first dozen or so dvd's after that, they didn't sound very good...now after using the DVD portion more, the sound on a DVD is getting better also.
Wow, it sure takes a while!
Thanks a million for the great replies, so far, guys!
Give them both, at least, two weeks each on 24/7.
Will all of this long playing time cause any excessive wear to any of the moving mechanisms, or laser inside the player?
Any chance of excessive heat build up that might damage the digital disc playing in the player for such a long period of time?
Thanks again!

Sooner or later the unit will get some wear and I think that it's call "break-in" :). If it get damaged, and it is inside the warranty period, you can change it.

Don't think so, at least with the amount of heat generated by these units. I have never experienced this problem before.
