Could anyone give some advice for what tube to get, I'm pretty new to this, though I've been doing a lot of reading.
Currently I like the stock EH 6922, I picked up a rocket logo 6N23P but found it to be rather flat and lacking a bit of treble.
I have the T1 feeding straight out to a pair of DT990s 250ohm.
These are a couple I looked at after reading through this thread a bit
Also I'm curious as to what everyone's thoughts/opinions on EQing are.
Personally I found myself kind of disappointed by the T1 in comparison to my FiiO E17 in the beginning, what with the lack of bass and treble control, since I was using a system-wide EQ to great extent on my Android Phone, I thought there must be a similar solution for windows that's system-wide(yeah I could EQ in winamp or foobar but those were always lackluster, and what about youtube and soundcloud).
I came across Equalizer APO, an EQ that hooks into windows audio to provide EQ on a system-wide level, but it only read EQ settings from text files which I had to manually edit, but later I came across V4W http://vipersaudio.com/blog/?page_id=59, which I believe is based off of Equalizer APO and have been using it to great effect. I was able to bring back all the things I felt were missing when I first started using my T1(compared to my E17 anyways), and with a bit of tweaking the stock 6922 sounds pretty great.

Does anyone know if the delay is fixed or if the circuit senses when the tube has warmed up? Just curious.
Pretty sure it's always 30s, if you warm it up and then power cycle it'll still wait 30s.
