Yeah, probably it`s about that combo and synergy. Sometime I just wish I had the money to try other expensive cans because I`m starting to think too much "locked" to HD-681 mkII + Aune T1 combo. My tube reviews come only from that perspective, so with other combos other tubes might get more appreciation from me. 
If you're satisfied with it, congrats. upgraditis is hell on wallets. smily_headphones1.gif I bought a mm schiit stack thinking the modi might be better... nope! biggrin.gif Going on the FS thread. lol

Well, I was given the Ultron for free and I don't care for it, so I feel it's only fair for me to pass it along for a very reasonable price.

Exactly!

Yeah, lucky this combo is enough for me and probably won`t upgrade :) Well, the thing is that I also like modding and making bang-for-a-buck products to their max with reasonable price/time/requirements. For me, Amperex OG GAC & Ultron SQ PCC189 is the "max" upgrade for Aune T1. Also, my wood version of HD-662F is beginning to take final shape :P

Yeah, I really like my combo too. I honestly should just stop looking at the FS threads and just enjoy what I have, blissfully ignorant. Hehe. I think I'm going to sell off my HD600s and the MM stack and be done with it. Bare minimum. Just have extra tubes on hand. biggrin.gif

If you, or anyone else cares, I can confirm they are flexible with regard to alternative shipping methods, as EMS seemed to expensive for my need.

 

I was quoted a $10 shipping charge via China Air Post, with the understanding it will take longer to arrive and does not have the same tracking/insurance as EMS.

 

The total to USA was $21 for a second power transformer, including paypal fees and shipping.  Great deal and will make it possible to have my amp usable in two locations!

Going to have to carry that thing in a pelican case or something with all that travel!

Well, have been trying to use the Aune T1 as "tube-buffer" to the M-stage today, but I feel it's not been very successful. Compared to listening to headphone out from the T1 I feel it looses the tube sound, and get's to solid state like. I have to say that the M-Stage hasn't been burned in and it's also total stock. No opamp change or class-a biasing. The T1 has now a Amperex OG in it. Been using both Fidelio X1 and also AKG K702.65. They both sound better with the T1, but also here I must say that both headphones are nib as of this week. So this is not a final impression or conclusion. Only thing I have to say that it's seldom a wise idea to add unnecessary links in to the chain if you don't have to. Which seems to be the initial conclusion with adding the M-Stage after the aune T1. The positive thing is that I now have hardware volume knob to my powered speakers, not bypassed as on the T1. The M-Stage also mute's outputs when headphones are in use.

 

the Chain is: PC->Foobar/Wasapi-->USB/Out->Aune T1-> M-Stage-> Headphones/Speakers

well the idea is avoiding that!

i think if i have a tube, power supply and cables in both places i plan to use it, the main base station is pretty resilient and small enough to cart around by itself.

edit: nm. I had the eq setting on I was trying out for my 2.0 speakers . nevermind me.

Hey guys i'm new when it comes to tube amps and i just got my T1. I'm seriously surprised by the cleanliness of the sound that it produced. 

I was also wondering, which types of tubes can be matched with the T1. Are there any types that I should avoid or does it not matter ? 

I wanna try other tubes but i'm afraid that randomly pairing them up might damage one or the other.

 

Thanks !

post #2385 of 5684
