I just got mine 3 days ago. They are still breaking in. They definitely need it. At first, they were very flat sounding across the entire spectrum. VPI recommends a 30 hour break-in, but I found that after about 3 hours, they started to sound pretty good. I especially am noticing the crash of cymbals, very extended and airy. Imaging is excellent. The soundstage is still not as extended as I'm used to, but it keeps on improving. I have about 10 hours on the cables now. I feel that these will be excellent cables once they are broken in. They are hooked up to my VPI II Black Knight with the JMW 9 tonearm.
