You know that "other" CD or DVD player that's been sitting in the corner of a closet somewhere gathering dust (and we all have one of those)? Use that one.  :clap:

  Nothing if one wants to put lots of hours on the laser assembly. Only so many hours.

I agree with you on there. that is why in the old days I kept a cheap CD player in the garage that was used only got break-in purposes. It didin't sound all too good at all, but it was good enough to use to put a CD on repeat for several days. And if it wore out or broke, oh well.

Nowadays I have gotten a bit more high tech and use my streamer to provide break in signals. If I just need music I make a Tidal playlist and put it on continuous repeat and if I want to use a break in track from one of those dedicated break in/demag discs I simply copy the tracks I want to use to a flash drive and play that on a continuous loop. Either way I am getting music with no moving parts to break or wear out.
Remember, it's all about the music........

   An alternative for sure. The Hagerman cost me $150 and can break in caps, components etc. A good deal had. Tom I use my server as well on random mix. The Hagerman offers more options thats all.

  Used it for first time. Listened before and after treatment. A big difference. I ran the process three times with 12 hours off in between. I would recommend the Hagerman to anyone.
