Sorry, yes you are right...but isn't the X1 PRO the upgraded version of MK2 or is it two totally different products?

post #5237 of 5628
They're different products. The X1 is solid state dac/amp. T1 is tubedac/amp.

Aune X1

E: So far, the T1 MK2 looks disappointing. From Aune's site, it looks like they've only update the USB chipset and left everything else alone. It's either that or they haven't finalized anything else yet. Hoping for the latter.

Thank you a lot!!!  :dt880smile:

No, a pro version is simply an upgrade tube. T1 MK2 is the second generation of T1 that offers asynchronous USB transfer for better clock control to reduce jitters and support up to 24bit/192kHz audio format.

And cost RMB100 more now (~USD16).

Agreed.

 

Lack of 24bit 192kHz with the current Aune T1 is definitely a non-issue for me. Also, USB jitter is a non-issue. Hope the mk2 has some other features that make it worth upgrading to. Glad Aune is releasing new products as well.

I know there's an X1 Mk2, googled but haven't came across any T1 Mk2.

I don't care about 192 KHz.  I only had two albums at this res. :-)

 

But jitter is a problem.  Maybe my player computer is too slow, but I do get jitter/skip problems.

 

Looking to see if the T1.2 solves it.

Have you tried increasing the buffer in your player? Have you tried other players? Have you tried Wasapi event mode? Where is your source (external hard drive or internal?) Is it solid state or a spinner?

I set Foobar for Wasapi event mode with a 200ms buffer or so, and it never has any issues playing off my laptop or desktop drive. Externals will occasionally pause during playback for a few seconds because Windowsneeds to read the directory or something silly like that. This only happens when I have left it idle for a while and I assume it could be solved via power settings. Haven't looked into it yet.

I think most USB issues are not actually jitter, just related to buffering.

Just some ideas and places to investigate. Hope you can eliminate the issues smily_headphones1.gif

Having recently gotten my Aune T1 from Earth City on ebay I am enjoying the upgrade. However there was one small tidbit that is still nagging me. When I set everything up, I set the gain to 0 because my 598's are already low enough impedance. When I started running a few tracks through the Aune though, I noticed slight channel imbalance with the left side being slightly louder than the right. It isn't extremely annoying but it is noticeable enough. I'm wondering if this is because of the I only turn my volume knob less than a third of the way to max along with 0 gain. Right now, by shifting the left channel down 4, I can somewhat balance out the channels. However, I am wondering if this is a normal issue or if I should contact the seller for a replacement. 

post #5248 of 5628
Channel imbalance is normal in an analog pot but I think that's outside of acceptable range. I would definitely try contacting someone about getting a new one.

Is there a way to remove the led so its just the vacuum tube
post #5250 of 5628

Super simple solution: cut a thick piece of paper large enough to cover the LED. Cover it and plug the tube back in. Voila~
