Found this interesting article. I am sure lots of people have read it.
This is for those who haven't.
Do you still believe in burn in?
hahah winning..audio idiot. I might not be as educated in audio but i can definitely notice the changes in my headphones over an extended period of time with burn in.
To be fair, he did list an exception for burn-in with speakers, although I don't buy the people who talk about burn-in of several hundred hours to get the sweet spot in their equipment.
See that's where you're wrong. After precisely the 2500th hour, my PSB speakers got significantly better. As with every other example of burn-in, everything about their sound signature changed to my liking. The bass tightened up and became stronger. The treble mellowed out and became airier, and the mids smoothened out and became more detailed.
I like how he thinks two pairs of wires don't matter. It's just like adding a higher guaged wire. It can move more through it so of course it will make a difference if the speaker can use more power. This entire article is ridiculous.
