Introduction to cable burn-in

New cables get better with use over time (or, their quality initially varies prior to stabilize). On arrival even the best cables can sound bright and lacking harmonics, fluidity, relaxed sound, detail, musical atmosphere. Normal burn-in procedure with your Hi-Fi system can take weeks or months. Our service will allow your cables to achieve maximum performance immediately. If you don't want wait weeks or months to get the sound quality you deserve from your new cables, then we will do the burn-in service for you using a provenly efficient machines, so your cables sounds fantastic on arrival.

Skeptical audio enthusiasts may theorize that no measurement can be done to distinguish a new out-of-the-box cable from a burned-in one. We take a position and we can easily hear and let you "hear" the relevant difference that exists, based on a certain musical sensibility, the same sensibility that any music enthusiast and audio aficionado lay out while listening to their music.
- a lot of cables and especially quality cables do need a burn-in prior to express their definitive qualities;
- some of the cables in the catalogue we know that need about 400 hours of regular working time to complete the burn-in;
- we are pleased to offer a try-it-for-30-days option on may cables, and it's difficult for the user to complete the burn-in period despite of the test month;
We are now offering a cable burn-in service on our brand new dedicated machine.

On our first tests, we noted that no matter how long one burns-in cables in a hi-fi system, they could never sound as good as cables burned-in on our system. This is due to the optimal design of our machines, that treat the cable in a particular way.

During normal use, there is a leakage current from electrical equipment which causes the cable to take on a charge; cable conditioning will neutralize this charge. New cables often have very high levels of electrical charge caused by the production process. In addition, gases are often trapped between the insulation and the conductor during manufacture. This can often result in new cables sounding brittle, bright and lacking in detail. These charges must be neutralized if a cable is to ever achieve its maximum performance. 

Please note: in case of return of the cables that have been Burn-in serviced, the relative amount of the Burn-in service will not be refunded.

      Buongiorno, per motivi di riservatezza ci permettiamo di non comunicare i dettagli dell\'apparecchio usato per il rodaggio. In ogni caso si tratta di una macchina specificatamente realizzata per questo scopo e da noi attentamente provata. I tempi necessari per completare il rodaggio sono fissati dal produttore. Non ci sono parametri tecnici o almeno, che non siano facilmente misurabili; per la verifica dell\'efficacia ci siamo basati su prove empiriche di ascolto, comparative tra due versioni dello stesso cavo, uno sottoposto al processo di rodaggio, l\'altro nuovo mai usato.
