Can the aune provide double the voltage? If not that's prolly why the thin bass

Thanks for the tip though

No, I have not changed anything on the Aune at all, so it is providing the normal 6.3V. But, I just looked up the specs again and it is not double by far as I initially thought:

 

ECC88: 6.3V

PCC189: 7.6V

 

Might explain the slightly less impressive bass as you suggested. I will let it run for a few days to see how it turns out.

So I noticed my volume control options have changed with the T1 plugged in to the old 'puter:

 

 

 

...so what is this SPDIF Interface stuff?

Btw, what music player are you using with PC and what plugin? I was also newb some time ago and didn`t know that with winamp I had to use Kernel Streaming or ASIO output plugin to bypass PC internal filtering. The sound is totally different when bypassed!

Why is foobar not outputting automatically?
post #653 of 6064

dcfis, what do you mean by it? For foobar there is this thread that you should propably read: http://rockgrotto.proboards.com/thread/7039/basic-foobar-configuration-1st-posts

Personally I don´t bother messing with foobar, traditional classic winamp + ASIO and KS plugin. Which plugin to use is up to you. First try KSO plugin: http://www.thefreewindows.com/2605/bypass-the-windows-audio-mixer-with-the-winamp-kernel-streaming-plugin/ and then ASIO: http://www.thefreewindows.com/2513/asio-plugins-for-winamp/ . For me ASIO plugin + ASIO drivers worked best because with KSO it didn`t seem to play in 24-bit (even when 24-bit box is disabled in winamp), KS status showed 16-bit while 24-bit file playing. But well, most FLAC and other lossless formats are in 16 bit per sample anyway, so it shouldn`t bother most ppl. KSO is a lot easier when you have no 24-bit music files. More info about KSO @ Winamp: http://www.hifi-advice.com/Winamp5-kernel-streaming-info.html (don`t set input/output buffers too low or you might get jitter and crackly sound). Also note that with KSO, depending on if you check 24-bit box or not, the output sound is slightly different.

 

e: These are my settings:

So, you don't like foobar?
post #655 of 6064

Didn`t say that. Just if I read about it and all it`s setup and customization opportunities... I just don`t bother to mess with it. I like simplicity.

Thread Starter 

I'd like to say that I used to use foobar, but I decided to buy JRiver Media Center...does everything foobar can do and is much easier to set up and use.

Dang man we are all in this together, I realize you must get tons of noob questions to get that agitated but I really didn't mean anything by it. Put me on ignore if you must.
post #658 of 6064

Sorry if I seemed somehow agitated - I`m not, just sharing some info and that`s the purpose of forums - to help each other and share info, advice, thoughts and impressions ;)

I hope that some tube comparsions by "newb" members in here weren`t made without bypassing PC internal filtering because Aune T1 sounds very different with it. 

post #659 of 6064

I'm using Wasapi, and SoX because some(few) of my albums are 24/176-192. And I don't bother to turn SoX on and off, every time I play some of these recordings, so it's permanently on.

Finally tossed up some pics of my brand spanking new Desktop Rig 1.0
