It should be 30sec, at least mine is about 30sec.

I don't think it matters. Some people say tubes sound best after 30 mins.

So...

 

I have my T1 arriving next Wednesday.

 

I'm really considering ordering some AKG 702's today to complete a happy couple. They would arrive Tuesday if I order today.

Looked into transducer. Mine is missing the tape that is in the picture on rockgrotto(that is why it was moving inside). And one of the layers is a bit(0,5-1mm) separated from others.

I started enjoying it when listening to Requiem for a dream soundtrack. Before it was cleaner, more defined but nothing has not changed much(tried some classical). A guess some tube rolling would worth try.

The Aune T1 is relatively cool. Larger more high end tube amps heat up until they can burn your skin and heat up your room.

Mine takes about the same time as it takes my computer to boot up (around 40 sec). So I would say T1 has great synergy with my pc :D

Cirque du soleil: Quidam sounds amazing with 6922. The soundstage is surely there, you just have to play right music. Some of my recording were kinda disappointing. I think 6922 is not best for most of my (rather intimate) music.

Yeah, and everything under FLAC is like ****ting into tube socket ;D

I have music under FLAC but I'm not listening to it. I'm little angry(in a good way:)) because sooo little of my music benefits from 6922. Cirque du soleil, or these Ten Million Sounds you've post sounds just perfect, but I have to look for another tube for the rest. I feel that string can be more precise and piano more accurate. And it's also like hmm...where si my music...oh there: half a mile away a guy is playing a piano:).

@ Enuma-elis : what's your headphone ?
 

post #523 of 5871

10 seconds into my first song with the T1 and already hearing beats I had not known were there. Worth the price.

 

Haven't tried the Mullard ECC88 tube yet, using the EH6922 first so that I (hopefully) have another level of impressiveness to go to after getting used to the EH's sound.

Takstar hi-2050. I haven't compare them to higher end headphones, but they sounds nice, neutral. They kickass my px360 unbelievably, but that's not comparison, they're different cans for different purpose(but superlux hd661 kicks them as well, they're also good bang for a buck). I would like more detailed and tighter tube for my minimal music. Any idea?

I hate that Mozart Requiem sounds flat(all three versions I have), maybe it is because the way it was recorded, I'm not sure if could distinguish Aune from my very good equalized sony mp3 player in this particular case. Metal sounds good, but could be better, New age I have sounds in many cases fantastic.
