My big joe power amp went through some changes. At first they sounded a tad bit too bright for my K1000 so I bought some OP Amps. However, without even touching any of my system with new op amps, the highs are not shrill or bright anymore after like 20 or so hours of using it. The sound is darker which adds some noticeable bass. I am extremely happy with the K1000 now, I can't image anything sounding better.

I'd disagree that burn-in is common knowledge, but it's true that very few people refute the idea anymore.

Maybe it is so, but if anyone ever listened NEW components for just a few first hours of they're life noticed the change in sound signature. I've witnessed it myself countless times. Nevertheless burn-in should be common knowledge!
