    Default Caiman Burn-in

    Hello folks,

    As I await the imminent arrival of my Caiman, I was wondering about the best way to set about the burn-in. My system is Laptop optical out > Caiman > Marantz pm50 > B+W 602s2's, but I won't have the amp or speakers with the Caiman for another couple of weeks. Can I set about the burn in without them?

    Do any of you have experience with burn-in demagnetizing CDs like isotek system enhancer?


    Thanks for any help,

    Patrick

    Yes... it makes my system sound as flat as a fart for a day or two. Sometimes. Other times it does bugger all!

    But I got it free, maybe if I'd payed for it it might be the dogs bollocks!

    It works better if you take off one sock.

    Left if you are using the fixed outputs, right if you use the variable ones!
