The new amplifier requires about 200 hours of initial use (called
“bedding in”) before the circuitry becomes stable and optimum

As the amplifier “beds in” the sound will become increasingly

Once the amplifier has “bedded in” a warm up time of
approximately 30 to 45 minutes is required each time the
amplifier is switched on before optimum sonic performance is
No special maintenance is required for the amplifier. Use a
soft, clean lint free cloth to remove any surface marks from the
