Aune T1 USB Tube DAC+Amp Discussion Thread ***See first post for FAQ*** - Page 311

post #4651 of 5680

Well, it would appear Salvatore's helpful links are gone (removed) 2/11/2014 - two days ago. That is a shame as it contained a lot of good information.

 

Perhaps time for a new and unique helpful thread ? Use this thread to answer day to day questions. Use that one to only house FAQ's ?

 

But this is now missing

I settled on:

 

Mullard CV2492 gold pins

Amperex Ecc88 A-frame

Telefunken E88CC

Siemans CCa (1968)

6H23N Rocket Logo

 

My music tastes include rock, acoustic, female vocal, some classical, and contemporary country.  So, all over the map, basically.

 

I have 4 sets of cans, which allows for many can/tube combinations to explore--way too ambitious--but really, really a lot of fun.  I haven't done a thorough job of A/Bing--so it's been hit and miss. Therefore, I'm not yet in a position to provide solid conclusions. (FYI, I use only the DAC part of the Aune T1.)

It seems Siemens is taking a lot of peoples top 3 tube choice and they are normally not as high price wise as Amperex ones (which are usually one above or below).

post #4654 of 5680

Very true on the Siemens...and since mine was GE labeled, I paid $19.95 + $2.88 shipping

 

They seem to range between $16 and $40 ...I would pay really close attention to test results posted...

post #4655 of 5680
The Siemens are excellent, I still think they don't equal the Amperex 7308, but, for the price, they are well worth it.

I agree, I wish I had downloaded it.

Do you want my cache of T1 tube info I saved off of this forum?

That would be great...also if you could get JOEQ70 to populate a link to it - It can just be called Member Information about the AUNET1 or some sort

 

Or as suggested, start a whole new thread just dedicated to FAQ. Not dialog, just the info.  Many newbies have pointed out that it is difficult to wade through 311 pages (and growing)

Recreated Salvatore's links post, nothing about it was an 'original' post so to speak. It was just a handy place for a lot of links, so I felt comfortable copying it. If this is a problem, someone let me know.

 It was actually the 6,3mm -> 3,5mm adapter that came with the Aune that was the culprit. I tried with the adapter I got with my V-modas and now it sounds fine... quite a relief.

Yep, I had the exact same problem! Right out of the box, the sounds was distorted, wavy, and completely unbalanced (loud guitars, vocals almost couldn't be heard). I panicked hard until I found this post. Turns out it was the cheapo 1/4" to 1/8" adapter... what a relief indeed!

That is awesome...now the trick would be to get a MOD or someone to put it on page one OR start a new thread called AUNE T1 DAC -  FAQ and TUBE Data

I'll send a PM to joeq70 asking him to update the first post. He had a link at the bottom to Salvatore's original post, but as that is gone now he'd simply have to change the link to this one. I also think that starting a new, non-discussion thread would be a good idea, just for raw information. Tube impressions, FAQ, reviews, and such would be going there, and that's about it. The downside is that there would probably be a number of posts made by people asking for help or advice; we'd have to direct them here to ask.

post #4663 of 5680
I think it's petty to delete info post like that.
post #4664 of 5680

Well I tried to offer the post for someone to take it over. I knew this way someone would definitely do so. There's been so much negativity going on here lately that I'll be stepping back from the forums. It's not only the thread but I get accusations via PM too. Take care of the thread and try to behave. You can freely use whatever I've written here if it's helpful to someone. Peace.

post #4665 of 5680

I'm looking to replacing the 6922EH tube that came with my Aune T1. I read all 311 pages (took me hours) and have narrowed it down to just one tube: Amperex 6DJ8 orange globe. Man is this thing hard to find for cheap! 

 

Can anyone comment on the Amperex 6DJ8 PQ orange print? Is it comparable to the orange globe? Or should I just suck it up and pay $59 for the orange globe? http://tctubes.com/Amperex-6DJ8-ECC88-orange-globe.aspx
