maxg Posted May 12, 2007 Share Posted May 12, 2007 What is it in the construction or materials that add to or reduce the amount of time for an interconnect to break in? Seen many theories posted on cable manufacturers websites on this - none seemed very credible to me. Does playing at higher volume break in a interconnect faster? Apparently not - at least I have never seen a reference to it. What does the % broken in vs time curve look like in general. Never seen that graph anywhere - but it is an excellent question - can a cable be 50% broken in? Also begs the questions - is there a difference in mass between a broken in cable and a unused cable? Does break in occur faster between some components than others ie CD to Pre amp vs pre amp to power amp? Probably not. I think - if you are prepared to accept the idea that cables break in after the first few microseconds of play then the best idea would be to follow the instructions of the manufacturer. Some may even offer explanations along the lines you are looking for. This does not mean that what the manufacturers are telling you is true - but at least you can say you did all you could to get all you could out of their product.
