I'm not a cable expert, but from what I've learned so far...this smells like a load of bunk if you ask me. (It also smells like burning plastic. laugh.gif ) People will buy a*n*y*t*h*i*n*g.

So what's next? "Cable lubricant"? "...makes the music slip more easily down the wire, hitting your headphones or speakers harder and producing a fuller, richer and more enveloping sound"

QUOTE
Does longer conditioning time mean better performance? Can I over-Cook my cables? Will they be damaged?

Over-Cooking can reduce the performance, at least temporarily. The characteristics of this are a reduced or diminished soundstage and a dull, lifeless quality to the music. If this situation occurs, merely letting the cables physically rest, and settle, then putting them back in the music system to play for a few hours brings them back to their optimal performance level.

...because you know cables have feelings, too. As do other audio components. I made my headphones angry the other day. We talked, but they still haven't forgiven me yet. Out of spite, they sound cold and distant and uncaring. Maybe if I buy them a nice gift everything will be OK. They keep asking for Cardas, but I said "No! Maybe some nice cable lubricant, instead?" ph34r.gif

QUOTE
Will cables revert back over time requiring a second burn in, or are the results permanent?

Unless cabling is completely disconnected for a long period of time, we don't think they "completely" revert back to their original, raw state.

Cables start off "raw"? So does this mean there are settings on the device for "rare", "medium-rare", "medium", "well-done" or "cajun-charred"? And if I use the "cajun-charred" setting, will my music sound warmer and more spicy?

But seriously, if someone could just ABX the effects of cable "burn-in", maybe this device would have some justification and respect. Until then, it's just another way for an "audiophile" to blow their money.
