I only have a regular Zen amp (model A!) and it only took a few hours of playback to really settle in, and only got better with age.

I just got my old Zen back from Steve after some upgrades/tune-up, and I panicked at first because the first hour sounded a bit harsh, but then warmed up really quickly.

I'd let it play for hours on end and I bet it doesn't take long.

If you don't like them, seriously consider selling them to me! I was just thinking about upgrading a little or adding a couple more Zen amps and using them for my home theater!

LOL, your first on the list.
Well they have been operational for 1.5 hrs. and it is getting better. less harsh and bright, almost warming. I have lived with the Wavelentgh's for 5 years and this is a good comparison. The Wavelength's came on very bass heavy and muddy for 5 minutes then BAM everything cleared and focused. Definately different from my Wavelength's. I figure a week 24/7 before I get a feel for it all. Grin
Thanks for sharing your expierience.

My signal path is as follows
Mark Levinson #39 CDP.
Rane MX22 outboard Xover splitting highs and lows.
Lows feed to a BagEnd ELF-2 splitting the signal again.
60Z on to 500 hz feeds a Crown K1 to Klipsch La Scala bass bins
Below 60hz feeds a Crown K2 to BagEnd 18" sealed cabs.
Everything above 500 hz from the Rane feed the SV83S monos onto Altec 511B horns/BMS4554 compression drivers.
Its SWEET Grin

Well I spoke with Steve and all is good, thanks for the input. I will have to post my impressions as they get burned in.
Thanks Steve
