How long does it take to run-in?
02/10/10 at 15:51:18
 
Just how long does it take to run-in? Just received my ERR. The bass is not as strong yet. Expect better after run-in.

Any suggestion?

Isn't your amp new as well? They both need time to settle in.

I've not yet heard the ERRs, but with all three Radial models I've had the drivers age and change over the first three months or so, and beyond (but much more subtly as time goes on).

What you hear now is about 85% of the sound or more though.  The signature is pretty in place.  You should get a bit more bass in time, but be sure to experiment with placement as well.

Yes, Amp is new as well. I'm using Mini Torii. So both needs run-in. Not sure whether I need to change tube to get better run-in. So want to know when I may consider to be sufficiently run-in.

Thanks!

The biggest change in the bass with my Radials. . . was throwing more power at them. The Torii transforms them.
