I m wondering if the daily amount of hours we played a new pr of spks from beginning affects the number of hours to run in. For instance, 2-3hrs daily, 500hrs to run in, if 8-10hrs daily, it will ran in by 300hrs?

It is not the hour per say that determine the hours of final running in time but the content of music or noise. I have had similar experience with my totem forest which a similar driver as dynaudio. I use to play Beethoven symphony No. 9 at about 9 oclock before going for my morning walk/breakfast and that morning exercise for the speaker will shorten the run in time with the rich hamonix content of the music. Other time I just use a cheap transistor slave amp to play tuner at off station(white noise) when I am out for half a day by using its wide band width. A lot got to done not just to run in the surround but mostly to relax the polymer cone.

Apparently, the Forest uses a HiVi driver that is made as a knock off to the Dynaudio woofer. The similarities were the material MSP and the 3” voice coil.
I guess your analogy makes more sense than mine. Thanks for sharing.

Hi everyone, I've just purchased the S40 with Stand 6 and as this is my first Dynaudio, I wonder how I can build up my setup from here onwards. I listen to quite a range of music from jazz, vocals, rock and pop.  I love the sound of tubes but the good ones are really expensive. Rhythm and pace is important to me. So I am contemplating on a tube pre, SS power amp if budget permits.

I'll likely be getting the Avid Ingenium PnP TT this weekend. Also getting a Nagaoka MP-110 cartridge.
Listening area: Living hall, rectangular shape around 7m x 3m
Speaker placement: Along the long wall (old 3rm HDB)

So I guess my real question is, how should I start? With a budget of 2k, I don't mind second hand equipment in the amplification department. Was quite interested in Schiit Freya with Naim NAP100 combo..

Check that the pre-amp can amplify the 5mV output of the Nagaoka to a sufficient enough level to drive the power amp. Otherwise you will have to invest in a phono stage. Phono stages add typically around 40dB gain for MM cartridges.

The alternative approach is to get a hybrid (tube pre section with SS power section) integrated amplifier with a built-in phono stage.

Does anyone know who would be willing to repair my XEO3? New agent is ripping me off @ $900 for a part (not parts) replacement. This seems like penalising me for not being their day 1 customer

Any idea where I can rework the Crossover to make it a Passive setup?

What is wrong? I am also not sure but upon power up, you will hear the relay clicking non stop. Assuming it is something power (voltage) related.

Latest update - No replacement part so XEO3 is rendered Useless :(

All depends if your ears are able to discern the value out of $3,900 :)

Cosmetically I am sure you have been convinced.
