I'm actually thinking just that, ie. get a powered USB hub from Best Buy. Seems like I'm out of options so I'll give that a shot.

Good luck and keep us advised. I have a T1 on the way which I hope to use with a Mac and also with an iPad 3 using a CCK. I already have a powered hub but would rather not unless absolutely necessary.

Aune T1 does NOT draw ANY power from USB!

maybe the fact that it doesn't draw power is the culprit. osx might think the connection is dead and disconnect it.

Yeah I remember you mentioning cutting the connector for power in the T1? Anyway I'm out of options and no other theories explain why the T1 would behave like that. It's just really bizarre that it appeared intermittently on my work laptop, and on my home laptop it worked for 5 mins, and then disappeared after a lot of noise.

I can only assume my T1 is defective unless someone can chime in with a suggestion.

 

I've tried it on 2 laptops running Mac OS.

Tried different USB cables.

Now tried a powered USB hub. T1 doesn't show up at all with or without the powered hub.

I've even plugged the power supply into a transformer that steps up 110V to 230V.

And uncola reported his works fine with the T1's 230V power supply so I don't think that's the problem.

 

Previously at work the T1 appears and disappears. At home it appeared and worked for 5 mins. Now it doesn't show up at all.

 

It's just so bizarre. Never had an electronic device demonstrate such eccentricity!

Any idea how the Aune T1 would fare against the Alo Pan Am? If it can compete, perhaps more should indeed be done to boost the ratings of the T1 :)

However, at work, I tried all the USB ports on my Macbook Pro and the Cinema Display. At home, I had nothing else plugged into USB except for the T1.

And if I remember correctly Coil mentioned the T1 does not draw power from USB.

So I remain stumped. 

Hello hello!

Been away from the forums recently because I've been just so insanely busy, but I did previously encounter issues with the T1 and my iMac! There were a few things I tried and having gone through it, I can say that I only run the USB T1 now on the back, and noticed on occasion if I ran BitPerfect it would sometimes cause disconnect issues as well. Though I'm not 100% sure with the BitPerfect aspect, I have played the T1 without BP recently to no problems!

Hi zerogun, what to you mean 'on the back' ? The USB ports on the back of your iMac?

I've tried the ports in the back of my Cinema Display and the ports on the laptop, mine of them work.

Did you experience the T1 appearing and disappearing from your sound preference?

Yeah, I cut my USB cable +5VSB pin at the end of PC side to avoid extra possible signal disturbances. There`s some talk about it also @ rockgrotto Aune T1 thread. But it`s weird that all the problems I`ve seen are mostly with Apple products.
