Aune T1 USB Tube DAC+Amp Discussion Thread ***See first post for FAQ*** - Page 26

post #376 of 6166

Would it be possible to turn the light off? Can I safely remove the led or is there a switch? I can't sleep very well with a lit room. Even the light from my e10 bugs me. And I guess I can't cover the amp since it needs to dissipate the heat somehow.

Why to order from china if you are at germany? If you order inside EU there is no customs. I ordered from this UK seller: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AUNE-T1-24bit-96kHz-Tube-Amplifier-USB-DAC-6922-Upgraded-Headphone-Amp-/251164443176?pt=UK_AudioTVElectronics_HomeAudioHiFi_Amplifiers&hash=item3a7a914228

no customs and straight to door post ;)

I had been looking into this myself too. Sadly the light inside is a special kind of SMD diode with 4 pins. It won't be easy to unsolder it. There is no switch to turn it off. The light actually has a function, though. If you turn on the Aune it waits for the tube to warm up. Once everything is good to go the light turns on. The Aune does not play audio before the light is on. 

 

Personally I planned to change it to a orange dimmed LED to enhance the tube glow a bit, but the special kind of LED they used makes it hard to find a replacement.

Rock Grotto are selling the T1 for £130 + shipping with a free Mullard EC88. Has anyone used that tube?

Alright guys, I finally got my hands on my Amperex 7308. This tube is the real deal no doubt about it. The first thing that stood out when I popped this tube in was man this thing sounds HOLOGRAPHIC. I've never heard anything have this much soundstage but still retain such smoothness. It's well balanced and dynamic with excellent details in the whole sound spectrum. The only question now is will I be able to save up money and start hoarding these babies.

Do you guys disconnect the headphones before turning it off? I get a feeling I should start doing that.

A popping sound is common. It's not necessary to disconnect your headphones,  though. Just turn the volume all the way down before you turn it off. You should always turn the volume off before turning audio equipment on and off.
