I just purchased a used t1 from a seller on Amazon. Is there any way to distinguish a original from a mk2?

Thanks for any info,

Mine has the "T1 MK2 TUBE USB DAC" in the front

jw @Rozenberg does it support files over 24/96 natively? Also, does it do 88.2?

I hope I could answer this with more experience, but looking from what I got in Windows 7, mine is only maxed at 16 bit 96 kHz while on 8.1 laptop, it has up to 32 bit.

I rarely listen to 24 bit files but decided to check it out just in case, and it's missing 24 bit option on both so I guess it doesn't support it.

Hello,

I can't get WASAPI(push and event) to work on my T1. Error:"Unrecoverable playback error: Exclusive mode not allowed" (foobar). Anyone knows why?

Thanks:(

THANKS!  I've been using my ears and not my eyes to review this thing. I got one from Amazon Warehouse and thought I got a deal.  Looking at the box, it has a barcode sticker covering the original label they used which only says Aune T1 upgradec version - nothing stating MK2 on that label or my box.

 

If I didn't see this post, I wouldn't have even looked for MK2 on the front.  Caught just in time to make it for the MK2 massdrop (which comes with a free Gold Lion tube-that i'm assuming is the E88CC that a lot have reviewed).

I bought a used T1 from a third party seller on Amazon. They said it was a mk 2. It's not. Hopefully don't have any issues returning it. I notice it does have a fairly high noise floor. Is that normal?  It has the Electro Harmonix 6922 installed.Have the gain switches at 0.

Thanks for any info.

Guess the noise floor might depend on which tube you're using. In general, I'm pretty sure solid state gear has higher specs. I don't honestly think there is much difference at all between mk1 and mk2, but it is nice to get what you thought you were buying smily_headphones1.gif
post #6578 of 6582
Also, just wondering, but I take it by noise floor you mean that you can hear a hum/background noise? You really shouldn't hear any feedback/humming/whatever. If you do, it may be the tube, or interference from electronics close by... I notice my cellphone will create noise if it's in close proximity and I'm receiving a text. Also, USB can be the cause of noise too. Hope your mk2 has a nice black background...

Yes. What I would consider a significant amount of hum. Using usb. No other devices around. I have a severe case of tinnitus. I use headphones a good portion of the time for sound therapy. I listen to music at low volume to break up the monotony of the therapy. Figured I might as well make it a hobby.

Ahh cool. I find tubes to be very nice compared to some of the crisp, fatiguing sounding solid state gear I've used before. I do find the EH tube to have highs which are a bit unrefined to my ears, but I'm probably just quibbling. They still sound good.

As for the hum, sounds like you got a bunk T1, glad you're returning it.
post #6581 of 6582

T1 shouldn't be humming. So I guess there's something wrong with the unit. Also since the seller listed as a MK2 but sold you a MK1, it must be a case of a dishonest owner wanting to rid the faulty unit. Make sure you get a refund and get yourself a new unit if you can. It's worth every cent.

 

Depending on your headphone's/earphone's sensitivity, the Aune T1 with stock 6922 tube is very silent (low noise floor). Only my sensitive earphone will have a little bit of hissing on very loud volumes with no music playing. Different tubes will have different noise floors, but it shouldn't bother too much since music will definitely drown the hissing out.

 

Very best.

massdrop has the MK2 for 169.99 + a bonus gold lion tube. Don't bother looking for one in the amazon warehouse. I'm returning mine, that is an MK1. They'll probably just try to resell it as an MK2 again.   Only problem is an est ship date of feb 18
