I have had my Aune T1 for a year now, and I have been very happy with it. In the beginning I got infected by the tube rolling disease, but luckily I recovered before I ended up buying ridiculously expensive Simens and Amperex tubes :) My main tube has been the Voskhod 6N23P "rocket" and it has been powered on 24/7 a long time now. Before I turned the amp off when i left work (the amp sits om my work desk) but the last half year or so I have just let it stay on.
The last week or so I have had some trouble with it. I get a strange heavy "digital" distortion. This typically happens in the morning when I start to listen and haven't used it for a while. I have to either plug out the USB cable or turn it off and on to get rid of it. Some times I just get a little distortion also, and this type I can only get rid of by pulling out the USB cable. This came up about when I got a new mouse which I plugged into the same USB Hub as the Anue (I have a lot of desktop USB devices so i need a hub...) I have now extended the USB cable of the Aune and plugged it directly into the PC, so I hope this will stay stable.
Has anyone else had issues like this?
