Did you get them from Elite Audio? I see that they do a 30 day, no quibble money back guarantee. I intend to make use of that to audition some Audio Physic Codex, ans maybe the Boenicke W8 as well.
Please keep us informed of the burn in process and your thoughts of the sound of the W8s.

They arrived earlier this morning, have put them into the system, i've put a cd on, set in repeat mode, volume down low and i've left them to flex and bed in, it will be a few days before real listening will happen, soon as i'll pass on what i find.

put the speakers face to face....reverse the speaker wires on one, cover them with a blanket and let them play loud...

Or just listen to them!? Wink

Just to add I've tried the above suggestion, but it wasn't nearly as enjoyable as listening to them.

Are they broken in yet?

They do look interesting , in a sort of Audio Physic Tempo way.

There must be someone who has these as they seem to have been SAM'med.

It was me who took them to a Devialet event for “SAMing”. They do sound absolutely fantastic, a lot of detail. Very natural and because of the little rear tweeters and their small width, they can almost not be located acoustically, giving them an extremely large stage. I also own the W11 which are a bit better in the mids and bass region. But for an average sized room the W8 is perfect. And besides that, they are perhaps the nicest looking and luxuriously crafted speakers that do exist - at least in my opinion ;-)

In the meantime, after many comparisons I sold my Devialet and moved on to the Dualmono Hypex NC500 but that’s another story…
