Heya Chebby , see you have one too ,,, at the moment i'm finding the sound a little fatiguing to my ears , the upper mid/lower treble is a touch harsh.
Before this i was completely skeptical about burn in, but this box's sound is definitely changing over time.
Clocked up about 60hrs so far
My one spent a lot of time doing DVD and TV sound and Freeview radio duties (optically connected to the Panasonic in my sig) the first week I had it - due to not having much daytime spare-time that week. So if there was any 'run-in' it was all over before I got the chance to sit down quietly and listen critically to lossless material without other people around.
Two suggestions, you are getting used to the sound or you have altered the treble and bass settings on the amp or the computer, if you have undo that and then listen to them, there really should not be a need to alter these.
Well I was sceptical about burn in but my new dacmagic seems to sound smoother and tidier since I first listened to it cold out of the box .Its been running continueously now for over 30hrs with a signal through it .Had a listen earlier and it sounds really good,its gained more body too. thought my marantz cd sounded better at first but the dacmagic is coming into its own now. There seems more ambience around instruments and the bass is more controlled.
Well this dacs been turned on continusly for over week now,The sound has definatly improved,I dont think its just the placeabo effect,I am a burn in believer now(what a turncoat I am) . Just listened to Stings version of 'Little wing;' the hi hat work can sound spashly and busy on the instrumental part,not so now, very clean and 'sheeny' sounding with a nice dynamic contrast between the percussion and the following saxophone solo which left the hi hat shimmering at the back of the soundstage, it left me with goosebumps,all from a budget floorstander too . Definatley keeping it now
