    i have the k series also and can't think of anything that even comes close at the price! as for running in, it does take a fair while...100hrs if i remember correctly. out of the box they will not sound too great but its worth the wait. on a 5 channel dsp mode will be fine at low levels - just as long as yer bird is happy:D

    and frustrating at the same time! B&W recommend 30 days for my S3's
    So you get a new set of speakers and have to sit on your hands so as not to touch the volume.. but its all worth it in the end the last thing you'd want to do is damage one.

    Taz, being protective of your new babies?
    Get them blasting! As long as the amp etc are warmed up you'll be ok.
    A beer or three will help with the acoustic perceptions!:D
    If you don't, my perception of you will drop to p***y status.

    Only playing.

    I read somewhere that you can speed up the process by selecting a radio station (With some 'noise') on your tuner and leaving it on while you are not listening to the speakers - at a low volume level.

    RE: Radio station noise

    What a novel idea!.

    But using the pink noise generator on your amp would be a better bet as this uses most of the audio spectrum range, making all drivers in your speakers work as hard as each other. So all the cones in your speakers will break in at the same time.

    Just set the pink noise generator to auto and it will switch to all your speakers in turn. Remember to keep the volume to a reasonable level as long exposure to pink noise would drive you bonkers!.

    For the fastest most even burn in of your speakers and all other new componenets in the chain, a great product is Ultra CD 3000, available from www.testdisc.com
