Install it and run a signal through it non stop for a week or two. You can turn the amp off or mute the speakers when not listening, just keep the signal going through. Others say the cable needs "rest" periods, so do the same thing with 12 hours signal on, 12 off. You'll need to double the length of time for the burn in.

Make sure the rests are crotchets or things could go out of sync, quaver too short, minim too long.

I always recommend breaking in new USB cables with a color printer for a few months.

 

 

+1, I use a $10,000 USB cable on my HP printer. I get blacker blacks and whiter whites....no wait, the whites are whiter with Tide.

Troll. However, I'm sure there's plenty of people who get stressed over such thing. My "break in theory" with all things is "is break in how you use it". Hook the cables up and use them. Hook the speakers up and use the. etc. If the newer item is not sounding better than the items you are replacing "out of the box", then it's the wrong component (assuming that is why you are replacing). You may LEARN to like it over time, however, IMO that is not from breaking in. Breaking in will open it up a tad and you may like something better. However, the general characteristics should show itself right off the bat.
