Why do I feel like I'm reading a thread from the hifi nut forums?


They like to 'break in' their cables too. Somehow, there must be different ways of pushing an electron in one end and one falling out the other end.

Question: Wouldn't this difference impact the early performance of speaker cabinets closely aligned(;)) with a particular Fs +/- ? Lower order tunings perhaps not so much, but horn, tapped horn, and bandpass boxes? And should we not measure/judge LF performance on any minutes-old system? Anybody? Ivan?

Consensus is "No". Thanks for the responses!

But you must use the RIGHT breakin signal for your cables.  Some are better than others------

Or so they believe

Also remember that the cables can not lay directly on the floor they must be suspended on little bridges between the amp to the speaker.
