By the way, it seems that toschek is selling some of his tubes + other stuff like dampers and socket savers. His sales thread can be found here.

Which ones would fit the T1. Only the one Amperex?

Hey guys, I have a couple of questions.

 

1. Would this be an upgrade from the udac (1st gen, not udac2). Mine is starting to bite the dust and im looking for a new dac.

 

2. I mostly listen to music through my KRK studio monitors, and what I liked about the udac was that i could connect them to my speakers using RCA, then if I wanted to use headphones, i could switch quiite easily. It also had volume control which allowed me to control the volume on both the monitors or the headphones (ath m50). From my understanding, this unit does not control the volume on the line out right? If not, can the volume be controlled through windows? I can't think of any solution to this if not..

 

Thanks guys

1: I don't know, haven't tried them

 

2: I'm running on Windows 7, yes you can control the volume from windows or music player (iTunes, Mediamonkey, Foobar, etc). But I'm not sure about other windows version.

A lot of them will, the 6DJ8s, 6922s, PCC189.

Dunno about the PCC88. PCC88s will works too.

6SN7 is a definite no.

Has anyone gotten a valid tracking number or a response from the seller: starslove?

 

It seems like there were 30 of them that were sold. I received a tracking code, but it seems to be fake and not showing up any updated information. I also tried sending a message to the seller asking about the Aune T1, and did NOT receive any response.

 

The seller has also changed his feedback profile to "Private" so no one can see them:

Private Feedback - This member, starslove, has decided to make his/her Feedback comments private. Feedback can still be left for this user and the Feedback ratings left are shown above in summary format. Learn more about private Feedback.
 
Do you think this is a scam? Or should we wait it out a little longer?

I also received tracking # from starslove.  It also hasn't been showing any updated information but from my knowledge, these chinese parcel posts often don't update too often.  My predicted delivery date is april 23rd to may 2nd though, so I'll definitely let you guys know if it arrives or not.  If not, it's just a little more than a week left until I start complaining to paypal =p

Let us know if you receive it or not. The thing that worries me is that the seller changed their feedback to "private" and doesn't seem to reply to any of my messages. Why would they hide their feedback if they are a legit seller?

Yea that is no doubt shady actions by the seller.  Hopefully we all paid with paypal.  Paypal dispute center has been good to me in the past, it just may take a little while for dispute to get resolved but hopefully we'll get lucky and this guy is legit. I'm really suspecting that this is a "fell off the truck" type scenario and maybe he just wants to keep it on the down low.

The feedback part is bothersome. The lack of response, not so much. If you look at the original ad, it would seem to me entirely possible that the seller doesn't know English. Why get nervous so soon? Personally, I'm waiting until the projected delivery dates have come and gone. Oh and also, I've had domestic tracking that didn't update this quickly. /shrug Finally, I knew this order was a risk when I placed it. If I wanted surety, I'd have gone another direction.

But why post the the whole advertisement in English then? I don't see a single Chinese word anywhere in that ad. Sure the item is shipping from China, but why post a listing on a major site where the majority of its customers speak English? They could at least use google to translate a reply to its customers instead of just ignoring them.

 

I'm going to wait it out and see what happens, but I'm very doubtful this deal will go through... not unless they provide some sort of evidence or communication that the item has actually  been shipped out.

Remember that ebay has shorten their dispute time to just 45 days from payment date. Keep track of that otherwise, ebay won't help you.
