ok,after about 20h burn in ...I have to say the secondary power recapping  worked out pretty good ,I love the highs ,they are very clean ,the overall sound improved and for some reason my beloved Valvo (red) sounds great on he400..I'm not sure if this have anything to do with the new caps since I also made some changes in WASAPI ,can't wait to replace the other caps .Thanks Randy

Good to hear...I am in the same place...Caps sound broken in..no more hint of choral clutter and the overall space is just better...MUCH cleaner bass...Glad I did it...

Guys, obviously I would open the Aune T1 up and look at them (especially considering I have purchased upgraded caps for some locations), but I don't have the T1 yet... lol

Then don't worry about changing caps until you get it home and try it !!! LOL

 

You may like it just as it is (I did). I just did a "what the hell"...but almost didn't bother.

Well I am the type that mods/tweaks/OCs everything and I wouldn't feel like this was performing up to full potential without taking my soldering/desoldering iron to it :veryevil:

 

You should see what I have done to my Fender Blues Jr guitar amp (2x EL84 + 3x 12AX7 tube amp)

Very sweet ! I noticed the EL84's right off the bat..can tell you recapped, rewired ? and probably new resistors ?

 

Are those 12AX7's ?

 

My baby is getting new caps ..just because ...some high end stuff...

 

she takes 11 normal electrolytic (radial) - going all Nichicon

and 8 of the push type (the big blue Philips getting replaced with Kendeil's)

 

The film caps are already wima so leaving them

Nice! I am building my own guitar amp right now with a 12ax7 driver, 12au7 splitter, and 2 6L6 in push/pull. Its an organ amp I picked up last night.

It would be awesome if we could get a running post that lists upgrades to various components in the T1. The information can include:

 

The part that was changed

The brand and model number

How much the part cost and from what store

Effects of new part on the audio characteristics

That is one 12AY7 for better clean tones and two 12AX7s.

Very nice, I wish I had thought about building my own, but I am very happy with my highly modded/upgraded Blues Jr.

 

Here is one of the latest pedals I built, a 5 Knob compressor (Ross Clone)

 

 

 

Now let's not derail this thread :beerchug:

Man, I wish some of you guys are over here. I still don't know what to do with my channel imbalance :( maybe you guys can use your modding skillzz to take it apart and take a look at it.

post #4409 of 8030

Just wondering:

 

How should I burn-in the tube? Just being connected is ok? Or should I play music? And should a headphone be connected to it?

 

Thanks

Yes yes, and maybe yes

 

  • Should be connected
  • Should play music
  • Should connect RCA's out (if that is how you use it)
  • Should connect headphones

 

why ?

 

First, there are obviously schools of thought on break-in (caps, wires, tubes). Lets just stick with, yes, we believe.

 

Just having something idling puts power through the device, but doesn't emulate real world listening. It would be like breaking in a car by letting it idle and never going anywhere.

 

If your AUNE is new, you not only want to break in tubes, but the capacitors also...So why the RCA's and the Headphones? Well, the headphone amp has its own set of caps to break in.

 

Now if this is not brand new, just the tube, then you can just use one path, the RCA's. If the tube is used, no need for break-in
