Just got my aune t1, and now while typing this out i am currently using it with my grado 325is. Lovely tube dac, excellent amp. A few 6n23p both voshkod and reflektor will be coming in soon and i am very excited for the tube rolling process to begin.
That's just.... awesome. btw how many different tubes you own? For someone with that kind of collection T1 seems to be a good investment.
Side note: Rocket logos are in and early impressions are that I really like this tube. Haven't had time to do extensive listening yet, but so far can't find too many things that irritate me with the rocket. Seems to work well with many genres also. Playlist jumping from Joe Satriani to Ice Cube to Kim Wilson to Sheryl Crow to Steeldrivers and it sounds great. Maybe it is indeed the intimacy that joeq described that makes this tube so fun to listen. Or then I'm just getting used to the T1 sound (most likely this). There could be a little bit more air on the sound stage and some extra clarity though, but this is definitely a good tube. Especially to listen alone in the dark at 4 am (like I'm doing now). Also this seller seems legit: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2x-6N23P-E88CC-6DJ8-TUBES-NOS-NEW-USSR-MILITARY-FOR-AUDIO-AMP-PREAMP-VINTAGE-/170978975997?pt=Vintage_Electronics_R2&hash=item27cf2420fd $8 + $10 is not bad for 2 perfectly working rocket logo tubes.
Okay. I'm sold. That is going to be my first roll in the T1.
Thanks, Salvatore. Thanks you all in this thread!!
BTW, if any of you is going to be the SF bay area meet on Feb 17, drop me a PM. I'd love the change to meet you personally.
