When you burn-in your electrical components, do you guys provide an output for that voltage? Do you think it makes a difference?
Example: I am currently burning in a DAC and a tube headphones amp. Should I have something on the output of the DAC when I'm running a signal into it on burn-in? With the headphones amp, I have a pair of iPod earbuds connected just because I thought there should be a load on it. Am I just being paranoid?
[If anyone brings up whether or not burning-in components makes a difference, I'll punch you in the face; this is not that discussion.]
