I recently upgraded the cathode bypass caps in a Fender preamp clone I built to tantalum 150d series Spragues. They have a super bright top end (not in a good way) and some burn-in time is needed. It seems these are the standard bypass caps in the AB763 for Jer tone and i wanna give them a chance. What methods do you guys use for burning in components on a fresh amp? I currently have pink noise running to the input with a power amp and speakers connected (its essential for there to be a load on the preamp while its on right?) I have the bass down, treble up, volume up on the settings. Curious to see what the most common method is.
