Aune T1 USB Tube DAC+Amp Discussion Thread ***See first post for FAQ*** - Page 335

post #5011 of 5952

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?

Between Aune T1and Kasso YJ-01, which one has a clearer sound, wider soundstage, good separation, rich and detail, and deep extended bass.
Which is one has better match with iBasso DX50?

I had ibasso dx50 about two months ago, and my hifiman 601 had a very better sound, than ibasso dx50. DX50 is a bad source! ibasso have bright sound without bass.

T1 + Crack SB + HD 600 = Awesome. But I still prefer Amperex OG 6DJ8 ECC88 than EH 6922.

 

EH 6922, too airy, too laid back, less bass quantity but the rumbling can be quite large in amount, brighter, thinner, and guitar overpower drum in fast track, but more detail IMO.

 

Single leg 6DJ8 ECC8, more energy, more bass impact, better instrument separation, thicker, warmer, better instrument separation.

 

Can't stop listening to Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold, Toni Braxton, Andrea Bocelli.

I got one of these too. Any idea how long does a tube last?

Ummm which db setting should I put for Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro's?

Hi guys) Now i have only three questions.

 

1) Aune t1 VS Audinst MX 2. What you think?)

 

2) Can Aune reproduce very fast / complex music?  

 

3) Is Aune for all genres? Rock, metal, ...?​

Don't know. But I'm using 6H30Pi EB.

 

Rated for 5000~ 10000 hrs.

Does anyone have thoughts on using the T1 paired with a Project Ember? Do you think there would be a noticeable improvement? (with LCD-2's)

Normally, a tube will last for 5000-10000 hours, I think.

1) Prefer Aune T1. Audinst MX 2 too laid back for me, for fast music.

2) Pairing Crack with Aune T1. Even with T1 alone, I enjoy metal and EDM, but need warmer tube.

3) Yes if you ask me, but better if you pair with warmer amp since T1 amp is too bright for me with EH 6922.

Was this a good buy? It said it was the 7308 White Lable PQ.
