Cable Burn In question


#1

I have a PWT and just got a DS DAC and a new digital coax and AES/EBU cable. I have both new cables connected between the PWT and DS DAC and I am playing a burn in track on repeat. Will both cables get broken in at the same time, or just the cable whose input is selected on the DS DAC? Put another way, does signal flow through all connected cables while both components are turned on? Thanks.

With most DACs including the DS each input has it’s own receivers (including it’s own termination, etc.) and present the same load to the input cable whether that input is selected or not. In the DS, in particular, all inputs are being monitored all of the time by the FPGA…
