I have no clue how a listener after 100 to 400 hours, could weed out the small change in sound from a receptacle with so many uncontrolled variables causing large changes.
Cuz you can't!
Seeking user experiences. Most claim that there is a "burn in" period (100 to 400 hrs) for AC receptacles, a sonic roller-coaster during that period if you will. Usually starts off somewhat muffled and veiled...then it starts to open up. Bass fills in etc etc.Has anyone experienced somewhat the reverse? Starts off somewhat aggressive and brightish....gets progressively brightish whilst opening up...then it settles down...gets more musical, fuller and more relaxed/smooth especially in the upper mids on up.I have the Furutech GTX D (g). Your experiences on any brand would be most welcomed as well. Thanks.
Absolutely! They aren't small changes, it's very obvious.
I definitely found a difference when I changed my stock outlet after 7 years to a cryo-ed Hubbell HBL 5262. At first it was veiled and warm sounding but also pleasing without harshness. I left all my gear running 24/7 and listened periodically and it definitely sounded different from the start. It's sounded the same after the first 2-3 weeks. The ongoing changes were quite noticeable in the first 2-3 days. It was just something I was not previously used to sonically, so not even a matter of preference or bias. Of course, I can't keep unplugging or plugging outlets. It was a one time deal, but I did put a few thousand hours over those years with the same gear for most part. So I know how my system sounds regardless of how I'm feeling.
Are you suggesting someone would have trouble in an DBT ABX? Or that they just don't sound different? Because they sure as shit sound different...
Dude, I'm sorry but if you get everything else right these things mean nothing. In a proper test there is no way you can hear an outlet that's new out of the box and one that has 400 hrs on it. Ain't happening.
I think you have it bass ackwards... the better the system the easier it is to notice the improvement a GTX receptacle will make. But I'd guess you've never tried one, so your opinion on the subject seems worthless.
