I'm really enjoying this thread.
The whole breaking in speakers thing really irks me, I think it is a complete myth.
Granted I'm just getting into this hobby but I read a review on a DAC and one user posted that "it really opened up after about 600 hours." I'm about the furthest thing from an expert but I recognize bs when I read it....
Could it just be that this listener became accustomed to the sound?
Not a myth but still amusing (to me-apologies in advance):
I have thousands to spend. Please recommend the best speakers so I can listen to trance music. Don't get me wrong. I listen to a lot of electronic music but it doesn't really require the resolution that great speakers can provide IMHO.
