Aune T1 USB Tube DAC+Amp Discussion Thread ***See first post for FAQ*** - Page 337

post #5041 of 5628

So I'm planning to use the Aune T1 for DAC only use. I would like to know if there's a difference in amp/dac usage when you're using the front or back outputs.

 

Computer > Aune T1 > Objective2 amplifier(via headphone jack) > LCD-2 

                    |

                 KRK Rokit's (Via RCA)

 

Between the RCA and headphone jack, would plugging it on either part allow the Aune T1 to function as DAC only or is there a switch...?

 

Well I feel kinda stupid, is it the switch next to the knob?

Thanks.

If you want to plug in speakers as well, you might want to look at a difference amp than the O2. Something with a preamp out like Fiio E09/k. You can get a E09/k for about the same, maybe less, than a O2.

After reading half the thread I thought someone said you don't do anything it outputs both always.

The front switch affects the HP jack and just the hp phone jack. It switches the input from usb to rca in.

Also, keep in mind that the speakers will always be on in that configuration. You'll have to unplug or turn the volume down on the speakers every time.

Yeah I know. I have them right now with just the Aune T1 and I use a separate power strip to kill it.

And alright that's good to know about the front switch. What about the rear RCA out though, is it always amp+dac signal?

RCA out bypasses the amp . HP is dac + amp.

Another way to "kill" the rca signal is to plug it into a switchbox. So if you're not listening, just switch to the empty slot and the music will stop.

The switchbox is a neat idea, is there a way to bypass the amp via the headphone jack though?

Can somebody please help me?

I just got my Aune T1, and I'm trying to set it up but I'm very confused. I have an ASUS G73SW laptop, and a pair of HD600s. So I got the amp running in usb mode, and have connected the USB directly to the computer, but I hear nothing. The instructions mention that one ought to plug to the line-out one's speakers or whatever, but I'm running this directly from the laptop. The sound is still coming out of the laptop's speakers.

How does this work? :(

on the bottom right corner of your laptop screen near the date/time , right click on the audio/speaker icon ( the one that control your volume control) , then click play back device , set auneT1 (spdif interface) to the default playback device, apply , done.

Aune T1 looks like another sound card that you inserted "into" your laptop.

Your operating system (I think that it is windows) and software (music players, etc) is still using first (integrated in your laptop) sound card.

You could change it in the system settings and/or in the music players settings.

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?

Five days have passed and no distortion. Connecting the Aune T1 directly to my computer solved the issue. Probably to much data through the USB hub after getting the new laser mouse was the issue.

I encountered this problem before. I believe it was after I had plug in other USB peripherals or played some audio to other audio output. I suspect doing such could have caused the interference to T1 driver.

Thanks, I got it to work!
