    The cable cooker uses a 12V DC power supply and no transformers - this means that output voltage will be less than 6Vpp - the cold tubes will happily ignore them.

    However, the REF6 has a lot of other capacitors that also must be burn-in, such as plenty of decoupling capacitors. And part of burn-in is applying the 90V DC or more to the capacitors - this only happens when the preamplifier is on! Do not connect the cable cooker without taking the power cable from the connector, sometimes a mains transient can switch the preamplifier on!
    Under construction around a pair of Wilson XLF's and a DCS Vivaldi 2.0 stack.
