How do you tell when your Cables are fully burned in. Is there a table to go by for different gauges and types of wires as an example?

It seems there is no guidance to:
Amps,Phono stages etc. of what to look for as far as burn in times.

TIA,NS

That's ok! I am going to mail them to see what they say.
This is their Email Addy in case you have questions.

jim@vacutrace.com

Looks affordable and just what I need to breakin different designs without waiting till hell freezes over and paying $700 for others out there! Ingenious design,but I do not know how effective it is of course.


Good find though!

Your cables are burned in when you percieve a change in sound.

It will take as long as you think it will need.

Inject some pink noise into your cables and terminate them with a light load

LOL!
I think cable 'burn in' is a lot of horse droppings, but the cheapest and simplest is to load one end of the cable, and plug the other into the output of your FM tuner, detuned between stations.
