I have 2 pair of the same driver. First pair has nearly 1000 hours.....the second pair, maybe 40, both pair are bone stock with no "upgrades, bells or whistles" and were compared in the same cabinet with the same gear driving them. I, A & B tested as well as driver A mounted on the left and driver B mounted on the right. There is most certainly a difference.

...and in all of these anecdotal demonstrations of the audible effects of burn-in the subject and the experimenter were unaware of which was the burned-in component and which was fresh?

Where are the graphs supporting that burn-in is real?

Right. And some people use Glycerin solution in alcohol to accelerate breaking in of speakers. Some use just alcohol and steady 60 Hz tone.

lol, no, I just got a pair of betsy's !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was quoting the stereophile article.

I'd never pay that much for the pretty cabinets.
After paying for retail (used klipschs), I was bummed. I could have bunches of drivers to play with for the same price.
But my 3 rb75's have been sold, slowly my buddy is paying them off.

I hope to have the betsy in the OB by the end of next month.
First, I have to get the boxes rebuilt (ones in my avatar), silver flute 8" crossed 2khz to mcm round horn with a jbl 2408 driver.
It was a project to sound better than the klipschs, and it does at $150 each not including cab or x-over (instead of $300 each used for the klipsch new was $1,300/pair). And I learned that the 6.5" silver flute can be crossed 5khz 24db to my piezo, while the 8" just doesn't go up that high nicely (another project for another day).
