Break in time that extends to months or maybe even years!!
Start the a/b test with a component for which it should be easy to discern the difference between new out of the box and then after 1000 hours of normal playing. A pair of full range speakers should do the trick, handily. Well, actually two pair w...

Yep. Break in of an audio component such as a capacitor or speaker surround, or more importantly an audio system, such as a preamp or speaker, could easily form the basis of a masters thesis or PhD dissertation. This would not begin to cover the m... 
Break in time that extends to months or maybe even years!!
Thanks, my only point being that break-in is a real thing, but I certainly don’t know how long it takes. Speakers, amps, caps will likely take different lengths of time. Now, can I interest anyone in a newly designed amp using superconducting magn...

Regarding the LHC, this is from Wikipedia.Initial lower magnet currentsEditIn both of its runs (2010 to 2012 and 2015), the LHC was initially run at energies below its planned operating energy, and ramped up to just 2 x 4 TeV energy on its first r...

Several years ago I recall reading the the Large Hadron Collider at CERN would only operate at 50% power for 1 year following startup to allow the magnets and other heavy electrical components settle in. I recall that the physicist mentioned that ...

Upgrade my DAC or buy more weed?
Your answer can be found in this little nugget from the 1970’s:“Weed will get you through times of no DAC, better than a DAC will get you through times of no weed.”Paraphrased, with apologies to the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers 
Why do no audio enthusiasts use McIntosh?
OP you asked the question: why do no audio enthusiasts use Mcintosh?Your question is really an assertion without any basis in fact. I’ll readily admit that I own Mcintosh gear. 
Why do no audio enthusiasts use McIntosh?
I just went though about 4 months of auditioning a pile of amps, preamps and speakers. To my surprise I settled on a pair of Mac 611’s driving a pair of Sonus fabers. Musical bliss. Again to my surprise, cables made a huge difference in many of th... 
Are aftermarket power cords required to be UL / CE approved?
To MillercarbonI ride bicycles, a lot. I’ve tumble over four time over the past twenty years, each time I bonked my head on the pavement; fortunately I was wearing a helmet each time I wiped out. Wearing a helmet can save you from a serious concus...
