And fyi, I mean everybody in this thread that cares, I finally have my shipment popped up on UPS. Now that means I can probably leave a couple hours from work and still get my 8 hours for the day. 3 day weekend. 3 day work week next week. And another 3 day weekend. Stoked now.
How do you know if they need breaking in??? They only need breaking in if your ears find them harsh, etc and if there is a history of people saying it sounds better after breaking in. No one has mentioned that about EMP TEK line of speakers and EMP tek doesn't mention it and if it already sounds good when you turn it on then it doesn't need break in. Like others stated its all personal if you believe in that or not. If you really think/want to break it in just put in a cd (doesn't matter which one as long as its music) and play on repeat on low volume while you are at work. Then let us know what you think of the speakers and take pics of your system since we like pics (emp tek or not).

My monitor 70s needed breaking in. With an onkyo 3009. Monitor 60s did not. The 70s are very similar with 6.5" woofers. But I'll be pushing them with an A31 @ 6ohms rather than 8ohms from an AVR that was probably pushing around 100w a channel max on biggest loads. The A31 is rated 250w @ 8 and 400 @ 4. I am guessing 6ohms is around 300ish watts. So yeah I doubt they'll need a big break in. Still expecting. Sound signature of my A31 changed over 3 weeks. So who knows? Just happy they are being shipped ups as requested. Breaking in is actually a small concern. More concerned about getting my LR setup as best as I can then adding other speakers and calibration.

And fyi, I mean everybody in this thread that cares, I finally have my shipment popped up on UPS. Now that means I can probably leave early a couple hours from work and still get my 8 hours for the day. 3 day weekend. 3 day work week next week. And another 3 day weekend. Stoked now.
I bolded the topic I was responding to in my reply above, which was about break-in and not about speaker positioning, etc.

You did get replies and someone chimed in...But you just didn't get the reply or conformation you wanted. There's no harm is believing in some type of speaker break-in, it doesn't hurt or really affect anything, it just takes time "complete". So if you want to run your speakers for a few days then go for it.

But to speed your process up, just hook all channels up at once. No reason to only hook up a couple at a time since you not doing any critical listening because they are breaking-in.
