No, Aune T1 is tube buffered SS DAC + SS amp. Wolfson DAC chip on DX50 sounds also littlebit warmish and "tubey".
I guess it`s also about personal preference, hearing and chain setup etc. differences ;)
Hope You understand what I mean now. Lot of people talk about soundstage size but mix/leave out difference between width and depth. Very good way to indicate depth is to listen Chesky binaural records.
