Or one could simply put one of the many break in discs on the market into your CD player and set it on repeat......... :-k



   Yes however adding hundreds of hours on the laser may not be prudent.

Wow that died so fast I didn't even get any replies. I can't come up with a cost analysis for something without knowing what it is...

Or just rip the test/burn-in CD to WAV files and play them with a PC to DAC or other file player.  Saves a lot of laser and motor wear.

Ok, and you want it to have it's own signal source? And does it need an enclosure?

Do you solder?

Right now I'm thinking it'd mostly be soldering RCA jacks, and some ribbon cable stuff. For speaker cable burn in it's pretty easy to just use off the shelf classD amps that only need a + psu. The RCA cords need a buffer on top of the source for signal to make sure you can burn in several.

Is 4 total rca cables and 2 pairs of speaker cables enough, or should it be more?
