    Changing the cable and 40 hours of burn-in have tammed the Magaosi K5 a smidge, though it may be just too mid-centric for my liking? There is also a small spike in the midrange; just a really small frequency response which seems unnatural and out of place? At $199 it’s not the end of the world. This is the price I pay for taking risks. Hopefully another 360 hours of burn-in will help?

    same experience as mine, now it is more different than my DMG than before

    Yeah the seller didn't have a FR. Usually I've asked for other FR and they ask the manufacturer for it.

    Thats the standard practice as far i am aware! sellers should and must provide FR graph when asked IMO.

    i doubt there's going to be big changes especially in all BA drivers, but if you want to and you got the time, i say go for it, there's no harm in doing it

    So........... the signature became smooth, after burn-in? See.......and I find that strange that many think the DMG and DM6 sound the same at the start. But..........when in the shop and listening I’m not sure I even knew the two were from the same company? Also I didn’t like the finish on the DMG. Though it has filters right, so maybe set up with a particular filter the two sound the same?

    Woo Audio recommends 150 hours too on tube amps, you get no instruction manual just a sheet of paper with that written on it. Lol

    Years and years ago everyone burned their AKG 701s for 300 hours.

    Well, I don’t like the K5, so I’m not going to be listening to them anyway. Lol

    no, even with the filters, the DMG won't sound like the DM6, they really have a different sound signature, I think many would think the DMG and DM6 would sound the same because both have a nice quality to their lows/highs

    I've had the K5 about as long as anyone (bought mine during the pre-sale) and it hasnt changed signature in the time I've had them. I used them for daily drivers for several months so I know they have over 1000 hours on them now.

    You hear that, everyone?. You have to burn them in for more than 1000 hours!
