we are talking about pretty easy/cheap upgrade here that could possibly make  "noticeable" difference for some  ...crap I'm prepped not to noticed any difference but I trust some of you here and willing to give it a shot ,this unit is worth $20 upgrade hands down ...for crying out loud guys, look how much some of us spending on tubes !?..I don't want to second guess myself down the road "what if ",I enjoy T1 and will pimp my ride

Tempting, but I promised myself not to buy tubes anymore. I have too many already ;)

Sounds awesome. I won't even consider doing anything to my T1 before such guides. Thanks in advance.

It's so funny how Aune marketed "good quality electronic parts" but in fact use generic chinese/whatever components. Kinda ruins their credibility to me.

Good find, lwrs10.

Yes, but you will SELL the rest after one of these...LOL

 

Hey, anyone in EU who you could send yours to on this board that would do it for you ? I would but being in Seattle, WA USA , shipping both ways might be a bit pricey.

 

How about it head-fi'ers?

This is why I believe that HF is against sites like [Removed]. Sure it's "beneficial" to the consumers because we're buying in quantity so it'll be cheaper but it might also be cheaply made. The manu will have to produce those units unless they have stock in hand. What if they don't have the available parts in hand to accommodate the order? Then they'll need to shift to cheaper parts because it's a large order and they can't wait for their usual shipment of good parts. So lower quality stuff makes it in. As a consumer we get a buggier product. Prior to them appearing on [Removed], these things didn't break like that. Now, more of them are DOA or within a week. I don't think it's a mere coincidence and it's why I don't buy from [Removed] or Groupon/etc. Good idea in the short term but terrible all around in the long run. Just my .02 cents. *rant off*

What I'm saying is that companies chasing money like that causes quality of product to go down.

I ordered one of these this past Sunday sold by Shenzhenaudio & fulfilled by Amazon. Is Shenzhen the official AUNE company or a go between? I would have had a lot of second thoughts about it if I had known of this issue before ordering. I'll just hope for the best.

I would not consider it an issue. Just more room for upgrading.

The latest one was at least the 3rd or 4th time Aune has put the T1 on MD. The initial one was back last year in May/June and shortly after, ppl came on here complaining about buzzing in their units or how their units wouldn't even power on.

Just got my Aune T1 from ebay; I don't know if this is normal, but mine came with an electro harmonix tube! Pretty sweet deal!

Mine was bought before, and still has offbrand capacitors in it.

What point are you trying to get at? Are you saying that it's not MD and it's just Aune? Because I'm at a loss at what you're trying to address.
