Software Burn-in

Recommended Posts

I know it might be a slightly controversial topic, but many of us reap the benefits from software burn-in, and after a few 100 hours or so, the veils come off, the soundstage opens up, the clouds part and the angels begin to sing.

 

When you upgrade to a new version of the software, do you have to start the burn-in procedure all over again, or is there a memory effect that persists in your USB cable (or whatever)?

No, not real music player software. Got to make sure it burns a hole in your pocket with each update, for a proper burn-in.

Are Golden Retrievers subjects to burn-in process.? I had lots of problems with my (RIP too) cat and her passion for jumping onto my loudspeakers. She needed some burn-in period before she stopped doing it. I think that threats of putting her into a microvawe oven for doing it made the burn-in process quicker..

 

Carpets in the listening rooms need a burn-in too. After a month or two they change their sound reflective-absorbing properties completely. But I think that's obvious for evey CA member..

Much like dogs, always seek a golden sample. Boutique software personally harvested from the mother server by the company director with his lead coder overseeing the transfer to a secure media that will be hand delivered. Hand delivered like a glass of water direct from the the private well of Lynda and Stewart Resnick on the grounds of estate in Fiji.

 

Burn in should be minimal and gratuitous to observe.

I have a DOS 3.3 machine from 1987. It KILLS any new computer audio due to all the burn in.

 

It's burn in has burn in.

 

Also my kids listen better when I whoop them with burned in cables. If I just whoop em with fresh off the spool zip cord they just laugh it off.

Wow a whole 1.2M per HD 5 1/4" floppy, must bring a whole new meaning to gapless playback support.

This may be stepping too far astray but I do believe truly antiquated forms of storing music hold more and do it better than a floppy. Oddly enough they were very well made and did get better with age and tuning.

 

Then again there were some odd steps.

Edit: I'd almost forgotten about this.

 

That oddly reminds me of the hanging chads in south Fla during the 2000 presidential election in the US.
