I've tried connecting the USB from the T1 directly to my computer (instead of a hub), and I've checked all the connections. It's noticeable enough that I've switched to listening to all my audio directly from my computer's output. Anyone have any ideas about what it could be or how to fix it?

have you tried swapping tubes?

Hi,
I just got my aune t1 mk2 today. It worked perfectly on my desktop pc.

However, when I tried to connect it with a OTG usb cable to my samsung note 3 and also note 12.2, both came out no sound.

I have seen someone posted it worked on his stock LG phone rom, im just wondering if it has something to do with the different usb chip aune uses on the mk2 device. from what i have done researching online, mk1 uses te7022 chip while mk2 uses sa9027.

Any help would be much appreciated. I really want to get this device to work with my android phone and tablet.

Thanks!

There's 2 things you can try, a different otg cable, my first one didn't work, and an app called USB audio pro. Its like 10 bucks, but its great. I have an HTC one m8 and a nexus 10 tablet, and that's what I use. I have a mk1 though...

If I'm remembering correctly, the nexus 10, which is made by Samsung, doesn't work without USB audio pro. I would download it and try it right away and if it doesn't work get a refund. I think you have 15 minutes. Good luck, that's how I do all my listening.

I don't own any other tubes, so I haven't

Maybe try hooking up a source to the RCA inputs and see if the problem persists. That would bypass USB, the tube buffer, and DAC and point to a problem with the amp. If the problem goes away, try another tube.

thanks for your reply SirMarc.

 

I think the issue is at the usb chip. After hours of research, i found that dac with te7022 usb chip usually work with android OTG. 

 

One question, when I plug the Aune T1 mk2 to my PC, do I need to change sample rate and bit depth in control panel setting? The default setting in control panel is 44.1 16bit, should i change it to 96 16bit? How come I cannot see 24 bit? All i see are selections from 32 to 96khz, all in 16bit.

 

am i missing something?

 

thanks!

I'm curious, what's the best tube for the Aune T1 for bigger soundstage and better imaging? I got Audio-Technica AD900X headphones, and I want to cater to the strengths of my headphone.

I only ever had the EH 6922 and Amperex 7308, but the Amperex definitely kicked up the soundstage to the next level. I was going to try a Telefunken E88CC next, but at that price I decided it made more sense just to buy a new DAC (and I got a good deal, so that certainly helped the decision). Well, and I already had an external amp I was super happy with.

But yeah... Amperex 7308. Probably the least expensive of the "top tier" 6922s.

Hi,

 

First : sorry for my basic English.

 

My Aune T1 (I had for around 2 years) had "died". It doesn't work anymore. When I put on the device I hear a noise and it smells something burnt. Well, I guess the device is dead... I need a new one now and am wondering if I can get something similar. I also can get a new Aune T1... in the way I have already lamps. I don't know. I'd like you to tell me which options I have.

 

My little installation : MacBook Pro <--- USB ---> Aune T1 <--- RCA to Jack TRS ---> M-Audio BX5 D2

 

Do you think I could improve audio quality with another device (maybe a bit more expensive).

 

Note : I don't really use the headphone amp actually. I used the Aune T1 more like a DAC. I listen 95% of the time via my speakers so...

 

Thank you !

Hey there!

Since I've been using an external amp, I just recently upgraded from the Aune T1 to a Mousai MSD192 DAC, and I couldn't be more happy with it. If you can pick one up for under $300, it's well worth the price jump (I'd argue it's still worth it at full retail, just a bit harder to swallow). If you want to spend less, ODAC seems like a good option. Can't really comment on much else as I've mostly heard what I own and some other high end stuff.

Hi,

 

I've been using my Aune T1 MK2 for a little longer than half a year and I've been very happy with it (despite „only“ using an Electro Harmonix Gold Pin 6922). I've been tempted to try out the famous Amperex but never found one that I wanted to afford.

 

Well, anyway, the Aune got me hooked on the tube sound. That's why I decided to buy a tube amp as a Christmas present for myself. I bought a Cayin mt 35 mk2 amp with a headphone out and until I get my hands on my bookshelf speakers I'm listening to my music with the Aune T1 connected to the amp. I also connected the new amp to my old DVD Player (Pioneer 757ai, SACD) just to have another source.

 

I love it already. I have to say that the first minutes I was a bit underwhelmed (maybe I didn't wait long enough to let the tubes fully heat up) but with every song the sound was getting better and better and now I am listening to my collection all day already...with a big smile.

 

I am excited about how my speakers will work with the tube amp but first I have to drive to France to get them.
