No, tube is used via usb only.

I thought about keeping it for home... but I have a curious 3 yo and a curious 5 month old. it's going to be YEARS before I'm going to have tubes at home. lol

I received my rocket logo tubes a couple days ago. Shipping from Ukraine to US took about 2 weeks. High quality tubes, I can vouch for the eBay tube seller with the little trees (electric_brilliance_llc) if anyone is looking for some vintage Russian made tubes.

Hey peeps,

 

I've written a guide to upgrade the capacitors inside the Aune T1.

 

Here is a link via Google Drive or if you prefer, you may download the pdf here

 

Please let me know your thoughts!

Well done!

 

Someone like me without friends (wait, did I think that out loud?!) will likely find a third-hand type grip like a Panavise an exceedingly good investment.

Does this help on the dac side also? Just curious, because I'm using an external amp and it sounds awesome with my hd580's

I didn't read it (watching a movie), but I scanned it over and the first thing that jumped out at me is you need better pictures.  Instead of just showing general shots of the PCB you should show when all the caps are removed and then show a few in progress pictures with a final picture showing all new caps installed.  I may be able to supply you with a few, but my capacitors don't look the same and some of mine had Cerafines in them before going to SILMICs.

 

One other thing, the method you went with is not normal on picking any capacitor height you want and then raising the the unit from the base.  Nothing wrong with it, but it is more work than most of us put into the capacitor mod.

Yes it helps the DAC side, you replace 4 caps on the DAC PCB and 4 on the amp PCB.

Definitely, in my opinion, it improves the DAC immensely.

Awesome, thanks for the tips. Feel free to PM over some pics and I'll add them in. I was too busy trying to get everything soldered the last couple of times and didn't get a chance to grab some "action" shots.
