Installed WASAPI + Foobar 2K yesterday without a hitch (love it )

from this instruction

I was able to to convert some music in to MP3 320kbps + copy to Foobar but it still shows lossy  is that right ?,shouldn't be Free Lossless ??

MP3 is a lossy format. FLAC/ALAC + others are lossless.

lol I re-read your post about listening through the T1 w/ headphones while videos were outputting through the laptop speakers. That's normal. The video probably found the laptop's internal soundcard and outputted through there. The T1 is locked but the laptop has it's own soundcard and will playback through there as long as it's not disabled.

You don't need to install FLAC to playback FLAC from Foobar, it should be native. You only need FLAC for encoding to FLAC from other formats. If you have the CDs, use EAC to rip to flac.

Yep, thats what i was referring to. no worries, as long as i get my music on my Aune/HP i wouldnt be streaming my TV output anymore. I would be still checking the configuration like CoiL has sent out in his screenshot, just for my reference.

Just as an update...

The T1 was indeed a faulty unit. I have since returned it for an exchange, and the replacement works like a charm. 

Thanks for the suggestions on a fix. It was great to have a few other things to try and troubleshoot. Cheers!

I just want to say that the aune t1 I have is so good, it was best bang for the buck imo.

What are the headphones you use them with.

 

And just as a query, have you tried other DAC's and amps

Could not agree more. Try other tubes to get different sounds.

post #3538 of 6360

First of all I want to say thank you to those encouraging me to get Amperex instead of Bugle Boy that offered locally. I get a better deal, threesomes tube but just a tad higher than the local BB. And thank you for providing me the link. I'd been spoon feed or tube feed by this thread member.

 

 

Amperex 6DJ8/E88CC is here. Just spend 1 hour testing them all but with short time, noticeable upgrade from EH6922 would be:

 

 

 

1) No more ear piercing sound.

2) Music becoming less thin, add a little body.

3) Better bass impact.

4) Larger soundstage.

5) Suitable for metalhead music. (I'm a metalhead but at the same time listen to other genre.)

6) Not just metalhead, improve music in EDM and R&B too. In other word, universal improvement.

 

 

However, the bass less rumbling inside my ear but I'm okay with that since I'm not a bass head. Plus, no more ear piercing bright. IMO, it's still bright but it's more like polite bright, better than Beyer bright. I tested EH6922 with Xduoo TA-01 amp before and it's warmer than T1 with 6DJ8 and stock tube along. But again, HD600 is a neutral headphone and some considered as bright.

 

Now I waiting for Crack. Let's see how Aune T1 pair with Crack will do. My current aim is looking for mid entry tube DAC, I love tube!

 

BTW, I bought my tube from ebay, took me 3 weeks. Well, about 5 weeks. 3 weeks to arrive at my country, 2 weeks stuck at post office.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3x-Amperex-6DJ8-ECC88-6922-Tubes-A-Frame-Holland-/300903204541?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item460f3a86bd

 

I can't here any obvious different between these 3 tubes.

post #3539 of 6360

I received some as well  ..really nice upgrade from stock Electro Harmonix 6922EH ,this tubes make T1 shine big time,I think I need to spend more time  with them but here are my first impressions   

 

Genalex Gold Lion 6922 Gold Pin​ (this was the first tube that replaced the stock 6922EH )

-soundstage

-warm and fun 

-good bass 

-it seems like this will be  good all around tube 

 

1962 Vintage Amperex 6922 E88cc Hewlett Packard  "7L6 *2c" Goldpins (I thought that Genalex was very good tube but when I fired up this one I was smiling ...)

this tube can make your mouth-water ,for some reason I had watermelon on my mind when listening to Moonlight/The Piano Guys and Kitaro ..lol

-bid soundstage  !

-dynamic and inviting

-smooth

 I'm very impressed with this one

Anyone got a tube to recommend for the hi fiman he 400's? I'm getting them for Christmas and I can also grab a new tube (apparently some are better?) so i'm using the 6922 eh right now and it's amazing already.

 

Also can somebody link me those tube holders?
