another thing the break-in disk does is helps battle any blotching you may or may not have.
My 151 had a small amount of blotching. BUt after running the break-in disk it went away totally.
One pointer I can give is to try not to over-scrutinize any buzzing you may hear. I did (and drove myself crazy with worry).
The buzzing (if you even have any), is at its worse with the break-in disk and it will not sound like that while you are watching with some audio.
My advise would be to disregard the buzz during break-in and wait until you watch some regular content before making any assesments.
but u may be fine buzz-wise as it is.
