    Panflute music works best. Two months since TL modding my 2Bs and I'm almost broken.

    But seriously the RD0-198 sounded great frim the start.

    Well it was a Doobie bros. concert lol

    I know a guy in the Bahamas named Doobie. Pretty sure I know what line of work he’s in...
  • I just replaced a pair of RDO-198s myself and I’ll be spending the weekend burning them in with a little mix of everything. So far they sound much better than the 2500s that I just pulled out and as westmassguy said they made me smile.

  • If you want some real good quality recordings and great music check out the music from mapleshaderecords.com. I’ll be playing several of those this weekend.

    I've heard that running Pink Noise through the speakers facilitates burn in. What do you guys think? Yes, yes I know the break in journey is fun, just playing music, loud, ignoring the wife to turn it down, but thoughts?

    you just need to play something it does not need to be loud. I have used inter-station static noise on my tuner while I'm at work.

    Just play your speakers as normal. After 48 hours of play the tweeters are as good as they will ever be.
