    I'm getting cans that everyone says to burn in.... so.... I'll be burning them in - well done! I'm a little concerned about overworking any components involved. Do you burn in 24/7 for weeks? Overnight only? Help?

    VISTA - speakers OR headphones?

    Seems like I have to go into 'SOUND' and change the default to speakers OR headphone, is there a way to just have both? Not for 'real listening' but previewing CD sample clips, etc.

    Same headphone, different ohms?

    Example: DT880 600, 250, 32 ohm. Why, what's the difference? And what's the deal with Frequency Response? Average hearing is 20 - 20K approx from what I looked up, so what's better about lower and much higher FR if anything? Science n00b here.
