Do cables "burn in"? - Page 10

post #136 of 138

Answer to question #1, due to labor costs.  It will cost the manufacturer more to go through all that process and time.  As for the rest of your questions, I didn't read them so don't bother me i'm busy

 

The solid silver core cable took me good 500- 700 hours before it started to shine and get me analytical metallic sound.   Try not to move these cables around too much or bend it or stress it. The sound can change, negatively.  You'll need burn-in again for it to thaw out again.

 

As for the Wireworld Oasis-6 RCA cables ($109), it didn't seem to need much burn in at all. Sounded incredible right out of the box.  Still sounds good.

As far as i'm aware, it' only a matter of plugging the cables to a machine and switching it on. Surely if cables as selling at high 3 figures US (even 4 figures in some cases) then surely this would not add significantly to the selling price. Moreover, they can simply offer a "factory burn in" option for a price or something?

I must say I'm with se on this - he sells cables and has done so for a while, so i guess he knows his stuff. I use his cables on my lcd3 - unaware of his views prior to yesterday, mind - and hi cables work very well imo. So i think he knows what he's talking about.

As for not bending the cables or whatever, i see how one can easily damage some cables by over-flexibg them and so forth, but surely just moving them around?? What about headphone cables or even mic cables in studios? I'd think it's important not to put i/c's near power cables or transformers (?) but that's about it(?) if the sound changes when one moves cables, why are only negative changes observed? Were they optimally arranged to start with? How was this arrangement achieved? Pls. Let me know; i'll arrange mine and report on results.

^ I donno man. The analytic and metallic sound signature was lost on those same songs after moving the cable and some flexing. I really loved that sound. Incredibly good.  For solid cores, especially the silver, BE CAREFUL WITH IT.  Don't do any bending. Leave as is f-o-r-e-v-e-r.  I don't know about headphone cables... as I have experience with Mini and RCA interconnects for my source and speakers.
