Tubes do make a large difference with this amp/DAC and I can't wait to break in my NOS tubes and caps. My Philips JAN 6922 are much more bass heavy than my primary Amperex ECC88 6DJ8 which offer tighter bass with better clarity on the top end. Overall I am highly impressed with the line out going from my Creative ZXR to the Aune T1. BTW how do you pronounce Aune? Is it like Tune with an A in the beginning?
I only have 2 hours or so on it, so I'll report back later after I have over 20 hours and I change out the capacitors. BTW I have another question, if you want to roll tubes on this do you need to turn it off swap the tube and then turn it back on? This is what I have been doing, but wondering if that is the common method or not.
I still haven't cracked her open because I have either been sleeping/working or spending the little bit of time I have listening to the Aune T1. I plan to open her up after I am done listening tonight and check which caps are inside.
I'd appreciate it if someone could also answer my question on the gain settings to use for SoundMAGIC HP100s.
