20 hours is the recommended break in???

Seems short to me, but each speaker is different, I've had speakers not come around for ~200 hours, and have heard some (Talon I believe but can't recall for sure) can take 500 hours.

Generally I allow everything I review to run for at least 50 hours before doing any critical listening, unless the manufacturer has burned them in for me (yes, many do that for us so we don't form bad first impressions!)
