Two questions regarding the Porta Tube.
1. Has anyone seen anything indicating whether it benefits from any 'burn in' period and, if so, what was the recommended 'burn in' time?
2. For those that have experienced it, can you make a comment on whether, like some full size tube amps, it appears to improve in SQ after a warm up period?
Looking forward to any genuine replies (Please don't turn this into a diversion about whether 'burn in' or 'warm up' are valid concepts or the like. I'm just interested to see if anyone has experiences with/opinions on the Porta Tube in these areas).
Hi Ian - I think I can respond to this. As far as I know - I was the first to get the P-T for my region (Josh sent a separate one to NZ), so it wouldn't have been burnt in at all. I actually ended up buying the unit I was sent - so it hasn't been to anyone else, and I've had it since it arrived (so I guess around 6-7 weeks now). I haven't noticed any major changes in the one I have. It sounded great from day one - mine is the first review in this thread - and I've had no regret in parting with the cash for it. For a transportable rig (iPodTouch > LOD > P-T > DT880/HD600) I still find it simply pure enjoyment.
