I burned in my CD3000 for over 300 hours. The sound difference is substantially different. The soundstage went slightly deeper. The bass improved in clarity. The trebles is less bright than at first listen, but it still is a bit bright.
I have been listening to both my Denon AH-D7000 and my Sony MDR-CD3000 back and forth. It reminds me of my nightmare comparing the D5000 and the D7000. This time, it's difficult for me to compare which one is better. I want to keep both. I'm considering changing the stock cable to Moon Audio Silver Dragon. I heard that using this cable brings the CD3000 to a totally different level.
Thanks for the picture.
If you want to know which one is better (AH-D7000 or CD3000), the best way is to listen to good SACD of classical music, i.e. with real instruments and with better quality than just a CD.
I've been thinking for a long time that CDs were the best possible quality for music. I recently discovered that it was totally wrong.
SACD are much better than CD (and some SACD are much better than others). I even discovered that vinyles are better than CD. The problems with vinyles are the "cracks" you often hear.
Anyway, if you want to enjoy your CD3000, give him a good music source : good SACD, a good SACD player and a good amplifier. Then you will be able to hear the difference, and make your choice.
There is no interest in listening to MP3 or synthetic music with a CD3000.
