....................................................If your system allows you to hear the burn in process, sometimes a new receptacle will need some burn in. I believe someday a scientist will learn what takes place on the microscopic atomic level. I am right now burning in a new piece of equipment and its sound has changed very noticeably over the last four days of constantly being turned on. And, my NuPrime ST-10 amp sounded not so good out of the box. But leaving it on for a few days changed its sound considerably. ....................................... ..............I have had systems where I would not have heard equipment burning in. I am wondering if that may be the case for the naysayers.
There's enough heat and smoke on this thread to cook a whole school of red herrings. Meanwhile, the light is so dim I'm not sure how anyone can tell how much ad hominem sauce they're squirting onto their fillets. It's so easy to lay something like this to rest. Install two identical receptacles behind your stereo rig. Plug in to one of them and run your rig that way for a month or two while running nothing on the other receptacle. Then invite your audio buddies over, unplug everything, clean all contacts carefully, and spend an evening setting up and conducting any experiment you like – double blind, single blind, etc. Right there behind your stereo is a burnt in receptacle and a non-burnt in receptacle. No more red herrings. No more personal attacks. Just listening and learning.
Again my challenge. I have a PIAudio Digibuss with a Voodoo all copper cryo treated receptacle and a Furutech GTX Rhodium installed. One can easily discern a difference when compared directly. Last time I offered this nobody came except my audio buddies who were impressed with demo and now understand the difference heard. Wonder why ?? Afraid to learn or admit your just wrong ?? After awhile with so many subjective opinions of they sound different would that not be enough for science to start testing of such ?charles
I don't think this thread is about whether better receptacles improve sound. It's about whether a receptacle sounds better after "burn in." A ridiculously easy way to test the assertion is to install two identical receptacles behind your rig, "burn in" one as long as you like while leaving the other one unused, and then doing controlled listening tests comparing the two.Same could/should also be done with completely different receptacles, but the burn-in assertion is the one put forth here so the tests would need to be between otherwise identical receptacles, one a virgin to plugs and the other well-used.
Some can hear things that others can not.
Well duh.So "burn in" one receptacle, leave another identical receptacle beside it virgin, invite folks over, and make controlled comparisons. Let science confirm what you think you're hearing.
Audiophiles who love their systems hear better than folks who don't feel the same affection for their gear.
I'm not fighting over anything. I'm just pleading for clear thinking free of fallacy, and for being willing to put subjective perceptions to the test.It would be so cool to do the test on my system. My amp will play music for about 20 seconds UNPLUGGED so you could switch receptacles without interrupting the music at all.At my house I could install two identical receptacles, burn one in for two or three months while leaving the other alone, then have folks over to listen while, behind a screen, I could switch back and forth between receptacles without anyone knowing when or whether. If the burn in is real the folks over for the test would find themselves saying, "OK, now that just got better," and, "Wait, it's blurred (or grainy, or harsh, or whatever) now." And I would be back behind the screen plugging and unplugging and taking notes.What could possibly be objectionable about such a session? What could possibly be the problem with putting "receptacle burn in" theory to such a test?
I do not want to even talk about receptacles.
Then I suggest you read the title of this thread and take your musings elsewhere. What a strange thing to write after posting so many comments on a thread dedicated to questions about receptacles.
