I offered $25 with free shipping and they took it.  They have one pair left:

Oh guys BTW, if I powered the headphones and only used the buffer, can I pull the amp board out of the unit?  Just wondering, haha.

 

If you're using the RCA line out jacks in the back, you can pull out the headphone amp circuit board. Happened to me, I fried the headphone amp board when doing a mod, so for a while I pulled out the head amp circuit, and use another amp feeding off T1's line out.

Wait you can't remove the amp PCB, it has the headphone connection on it.

 

I can't believe nobody grabbed that other pair of Smokies for $25 shipped (make an offer).

I bought some smokies and never really loved them... what genre do you like to listen to with them? Electronic? I heard someone suggest them for electronic music before... just wondering.

I listen to a lot of classic rock and bluegrass along with rap and jazz.  Pretty much any genre and I've only heard good things about these tubes and the tests were too good for $25 shipped so I grabbed them up.

 

All tubes are going to sound different and mine tells you they are from 1967 and use the plate foil getter.  Both triodes measuring equally on both tubes.  Tubes will be marked with a sticker probably telling me the 118%/118%

 

Between the capacitor mods and the tube rolling, I'm excited to have Smokies in the collection at such a low price.  Plus just headsets can make a huge difference if a tube "sounds better".  I will be powering my T1 pretty soon with a pre-amp Front Channel from my Yamaha RX-V863 as long as I can somehow mute the outgoing sound from the receiver...

Yes, but it's still operational, the DAC part that is. The only connection left is through the RCA line out, feeding to another amp.

 

I can't imagine someone would do that deliberately though. What happened to me was an accident, because I fried the headphone pcb during the caps mod.

So here is the back of my receiver:

 

 

 

 

I'm assuming I just use the pre-out fronts to the Aune T1, but my question is how do I kill the sound to main speakers?  Do some receivers have that set up to be done easily and some make you walk around in a circle.
