      Hello! I'm getting a pair of Adam a7x delivered today. Does anyone have experience with breaking speakers in? I've read where you're 'supposed' to run music/pink noise thru them for days straight. Thoughts?

      Thanks

        Adam website suggests 24 hour break-in, using music with a wide range of frequencies and varying volume levels.

        My own experience with other monitors is similar, although I have found some improvement into the 35-40 hour range. Pink noise alone wouldn't give you the same intermittent stress that music would -- you're trying to exercise the speaker cones and the foam.

        Enjoy your new monitors!
