Thought I might get rid of my Meridian G08 and get a new Marantz KI Pearl SACD Player. Any ideas as to the best way to run it in?
Leave it on for a week, and next time try to buy demo floor stock for new gear, you can save money and its already burnt-in with full warranty.
I got rhe XLO burn it CD and put track 9 on repeat over the weekend. It seems to have done the trick. The bass opened up and although it is not as well defined as the G08 it is still quite good. I might let it run some more. The Pearl seems like a good value player if not the very best.
Listen to it!
Plop in your favorite CD and push play.
