Oh yes! You start hearing magic difference in sound after our return policy ends! Sound be good! Go on! Buy cable!
You don't have to be a prick about it do you.
And the guy in the stored didnt even mention cables. I was already going to buy it when he said it, so I just thought of bringing it up.

But how do you know when your cables are burnt in (may be that's my problem)      :L3000:

No idea as I have no experience with it. I guess probably not a noticeable sound change, I bought it for the build quality anyway so doesnt matter smily_headphones1.gif

I think the burn-in issue is just a remnant from an older era, when things really did have burn-in. Now I think the guys at the hifi stores just say everything has burn-in. One reason they say this is it gives you a reason to not return items if you experience buyers remorse or aren't 100% satisfied and it doesn't cost them . . . you just need to wait and the sound will get better. According to all the tests I've seen with measurement equipment, there isn't any burn-in on solid state amps or cables. If there is a change after 100 hours, then we don't have a piece of equipment that can detect it, and the equipment we do have is far more precise than our hearing.

 

The other interesting thing about the burn-in is that it seems like the amount of time it takes keeps getting higher and higher.

I was under the impression that burn-in was a simple loosening of moving mechanical parts through use, similar to mechanical dithering. Under that assumption, it would not make sense for anything without moving parts to need to burn-in.

That too but I think metals getting heated up also changes shape therefore different sound when it been running for an hour for example. And things worn out over a long time and will change in that matter aswell.

All this lovely banter about the sonic properties of wire... (sigh) belongs in the Sound Science foolishness forum with the posts about the sonic properties of power cords, fuses and AA Batteries...

Moar pictures please.

Sweet little setup.

I love the looks of the M&M stacks. I have considered one myself, but have yet to pull the trigger. Currently saving for an Emotiva DC-1 DAC/HP amp, so I am holding off for now.

I have considered buying the Magni after that either way, to have a low cost amp that should do well with harder to drive 'phones.

Sounds wonderful with female vocals! Which is about 80% of my music collection lol. I'm actually returning my HE-400s because I like the sound of the W1000X so much.

I have always wanted to hear what a tube amp sounds like.
