Will burn in break my cdp?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Even though I burned my denon 370 in for about 200 hours, you know, a few days here, a day here, I'm wondering. . .

I searched for this, and a thread came up, no replies. So, can a cdp be used continuously? Or should it be stopped every 2 hours or so?

IMO, you probably shouldn't because the cdp has moving mechanical parts. The more the part moves, the more it wears...

I wouldn't worry about it, personally.

Anyone else? It seems we have 2 conflicting opinions.

Don't worry about it. All CD-players have to do is play CD's, it's not hard labour.
I use my CDP almost constantly and never had any problems with it. It will probably die in ten years. I'll buy a new one then if I haven't bought something else before that time.

i agree. unless the cd player is **** quality (which i believe is not true with denon) you shouldn't have anything to worry about. i pretty much always leave my rega planet on, and the other weekend i let the sony ns500v run all weekend (like three consecutive days) looping bjork's latest to burn in the redbook laser.

electronics either last or don't last. either way, a $200 cd player isn't going to be that hard to replace.

Yes, using your CD player for what it was meant to do will cause substancial irreversable damage and could harm your headphone and/or amp.

I had a cd deck for 10 years, used it everyday, never has it acted up.

so dont worry about it

Thanks for the sarcasm. So, basically, I can drive my car as long as I want, and nothing will happen?

You have two sets of moving parts in your CDP, the spindle drive (spinning) and the laser mechanism (movement across the cd and focusing).

If you left a CD in your device spinning, with NO laser movement, I would say it would last about a year and a half before the spindle bearing wore out.

Wear of the laser assembly is something else.

I personally would not worry about it. But I don't use CDP for break in or burn in. I use receivers or radios or TV's.

I was referring to the break in of the cd player itself as well.

Andrzejpw is asking a perfectly reasonable question! I could very easily see myself asking the same question. Why? Because when you're in school and you have a limited budget, you hold closely all the things you've spent your hard-earned funds on. In my experience, high school jobs just don't pay well enough for one to casually run out to the local hi-fi shop and replace a broken CDP; I'm in high school, I would know! There. I'm done. No need for sarcasm, really.

thanks Quality Guru! You know, you describe me perfectly.

I baby everything that I own. . . I just want it to last.

seriously, don't worry about it. If your cd player breaks when playing cds, something is really wrong.
