How should we know xExio you didn't say how much you paid for it lol. Do you mean is it a nice tune , Yea I think it's pretty well reviewed as being very highly sound quality so says Salvatore and I'm pretty sure he is one of the top 3 people having listened to nearly every tube so..

 

"

Amperex 7308 White Label PQ: Combines the best qualities of both orange globe and telefunken. Feels natural and has proper punch when needed. The bass is simply perfect and the overall sound manages to be very transparent, airy and highly detailed without being cold. Lots of layers which help you discover new interesting things from your favorite tracks. This tube just seems to have it all. Listen some quality jazz recordings and you can easily hear all the brushes and strokes of individual instruments.

 

Sound stage: ****½

Imaging: ****½

Transparency: ****½

Total: 13½ / 15"

When people refer to white/orange label, do they refer on the color of the print on the tube itself, or is this the real tubes name?

Also could you say how much you payed for the tube and where you got it from? online/store...

Thanks

I come to understand that Philips PCC189 is 7.6V/300mA and 6922-variants are 6.3V. Can Aune T1 support Philips PCC189 plug-n-play?

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.

Thanks! What do you mean about warmer tube? Examples?)

Warmer means more presence of bass sound usually in the Mid range, bloated means to much bass, and so on

My new Amperex JAN 7308 tube. Imprint said it is made in USA. First hour test proves it sounds better than the 6922EH. Tighter bass, better imaging, better mids, better vocals. Need to spend more listening to it.So far listening to Diana Krall, Michael Jackson, Norah Jones, Daniel Pewter and Robbie Williams, is more enjoyable. Cost me RMB275 (USD45).

You need to open the cable and then cut the wire.

 

 

Or you can drill through the USB A header until the pin for the 5V supply is gone.

Envy you that you can buy tubes at great prices.

Hi Folks!!

 

I am back. :-)  Things have changed a bit in my system.  I now use the aune only as a DAC (never liked its amp, anyhow)... in fact, it has taken place as my main DAC, replacing my Peachtree Nova on that.

 

Anyhow, I am writing to tell I found an absolutely fantastic tube for it.  6N23P Refektor.   

 

It really takes the little aune for the next level.  The sound clean, almost crisp, yet involving and musical.  Bass is awesome.  Mids are sweet.  Treble sparkles.  The whole thing is just full body and tasty. :L3000:

 

It clearly passed the Amperex Orange Globes (not an easy feat).
