This can be a rather esoteric question. Some might say that during the break-in period, what is really happening is: your brain is adapting to the sound of the amp. I tend to disagree with that concept, but I could be wrong......
In the theory I choose to accept: the break-in has most to do with varying the voltages through the capacitors (charging and discharging). I also tend to believe the other circuitry benefits from break-in as well. My presumption then would lead me to answer with: no, you must play actual music at an actual level of audible volume, in order to fully break-in the amp.
