I was surprised when people here posted up to 500hr for the DS to sound its best. I was getting spitty sibilants and was starting to think there maybe a problem with the upgrade kit. One of our more studious colleagues posted that at 500hrs the spit dries up. I am now a believer. I have been running track 9 of the XLO/Reference Recordings system conditioning CD every night & it seems to be doing the business. I’d say I was up to 400hrs and will keep it up another week.
Sibilant reproduction, especially female vocals, is a major concern for me so I hope it continues to dry up.
Another thing is, I didn’t like JRMC 20. I seem to get better sound with 19.0.146 & 18.0.194
Any comments, please?
