Brake in time needed for new Stax SR-009

post #1 of 9

I will be receiving my new Stax SR-009 in the next day or two and was wondering if anyone knows how long the brake in period is for these phones?

Thanks

Rumble, I don't think there is any.  I've had mine for about 5 months now and haven't noticed any changes at all.

Hey Golfnutz:

 

Thanks. Just curious as to how long I needed to wait to start really hearing the magic.

it wont be necessary for burn in. in fact, i didnt notice any improvement over all my audio equipments after a while or maybe i simply dont care......

There is no such thing as break in or burn in so they are good to go from that standpoint.  All electrostatic transducers can have some charge issues but these should never have any real effect with a properly designed bias supply.

Mine needed 1-2days for full break in... Maybe it is my amp... Cos the sibilance disappeared and stronger bass arises after 2 days of white noise burn in.

Rumble, in post 18107 Kevin suggests 1-2 days charge time (this isn't consider break-in time though).

This is exactly what happened with my SR-009 as well, sounded cold and lacking bass out of the box. After a couple days of pink noise it sounds alot more like the demo units and AnakChan's SR-009 I listened to earlier. There is bass presence and the sibilance has now subsided. I was surprised by the change because I had thought only Dynamics need burn in.

The SR-009 are a wonderful set of cans, congrats on the purchase Rumbleripper!

Thanks Donny!

 

I plan to do a comparison of it with my WA5 LCD-3 setup. Will have to do some good listening sessions with both to compare. Am fairly busy currently.
