Darkvoice 332One additional quick note on the HD650 Darkvoice 332 pairing.
I have about 40 hours burn in on the pair to this point.
I am starting to revisit some of the musical sources that I tried out in the very beginning.
For example, SACD version of Chic Corea's "Rendezvous in New York", one of the finest overall recordings I have heard recently. Although on my first run, it sounded great, if I had one minor criticism it would have been that the highs, although enhanced and attenuated, were just a tiny bit "harsh."
Well after 40 hours of burn in, the "harshness" is totally gone. Now the enhanced highs blend into a total musical experience that is liquid and warm just as a tube amp should be. Absolutely no "harshness" whatsoever.
"Burn" baby "burn"!!
