dont i have to open up that unit to do so ? the rubber feet at the bottom actually block the access to the screws, not sure if i want to remove them as they keep my unit from moving around the desk.

 

Wont that void my warranty ( whatever i have :P )  ? Is there a DIP switch or should i just de-solder the LED off from that board ?

 

Regards,

I cut it so, that circle is 2mm larger than pins-circle and made holes to that plastic so pins go through it and that plastic will "stick" to tube and it doesn`t fall off if removing tube.

If you are crazy tube-roller like I am then it`s great method to mark different tubes for different genres, for example red plastic for rock/metal/progressive/jazz and yellow plastic for EDM/EAM, green plastic for movies/dialogue, orange plastic for classic etc. ;)

 

Don`t forget to post pics to Aune T1 thread.

Bravo audio Ocean with stock 12AU7 tube, managed to mod LED so its not as bright and doesn't reflect back on the tube (card to block reflection and glue+dark nail polish to dim light)
