Somewhere in May 2020 (this month), I will be the proud owner of my very first pair of studio monitors, two Neumann KH-120A's 🙂
I've never had studio monitors in my life and I've read that they should be 'broken in'? What does that actually mean? Doe it mean that I will have to listen for a certain amount of time in order to familiarize myself with them? And/or does it mean, that it is (also) for TECHNICAL reasons that they should be used for a certain amount of time before they are 'ripe / mature' for monitoring?
Do Neumann monitors actually NEED to be broken in straight out of the box?
I have searched this forum and only found a 2018 question/item about Adam monitors. Does that answer hold for me as well?
I found that my neumann's haven't changed, they aren't like guitar amp speakers where they need to break in, I haven't noticed any changes in the sound since 2014, I think neumann put them through tests before they send them out during the quality control process so they already come 'broken in' so to speak.
p.s congratulations, they are great monitors.
