Do speakers matter?
01/07/21 at 21:44:37
 
This just might be the dumbest question on here, but here goes!. I have a SE84UFO25 coming soon and I started pondering today how to best build break-in time on the new amp. I'm at work in my office 8-10 hours most days. I have a Taboo, DAC, ZStage setup feeding a pair of Steve's Tiny Radials on my office desk and they sound magical! Can or should I replace the Taboo with the SE84UFO25 and feed Steve's Tiny Radials in order to get more (faster) hours on the new amp? Do the speakers matter when it comes to amp break in? Thanks to the community for your input.

A load on the amplifier is a load on the amplifier. What speakers it is driving have no bearing on the heat cycles that you are putting the amp through.
It is all about the heat cycles.

5 hours on, 5 hours cooling is the quickest way to get the amp broken in.

Thanks Donnie.
I recall seeing a post from Steve that the "quality" of the music fed to the amp matters, ie. don't use break in, pink noise etc. It sounds like if I use a good dac, good music selection and 5 hours on, 5 hours off I'll be set! Anything else you would recommend?

Just play the heck out of it and enjoy the music, that is what all of this is about, isn't it?

One last thing, I recommend that everyone sends me cash. If everyone sent me say $2000 each, maybe 4 times a year, I wouldn't have the need to work. Things would be much better, at least in my opinion.

Donnie,

I just PayPal'd you $2,000. Why did you send me back $4,000? Oh it's one of those pyramid deals, cool.
