That is not an opamp. Many chips can come in a DIP8 package. That chip appears to be a serial EEPROM.

Yes it is used in other tube amps.

I wanted to ask people in this forum about this:

 

"If you change the cord or adapter then don`t forget to change it to one that has a FUSE in it!

IMPORTANT! - UK plug fuse should be changed to something between 0,5A - 3A fuse because in stock it comes with 13A fuse which is way too much!"

 

I live outside the US and our country uses 220v instead of 100v like the US does, the question is, do I still have to change the fuse as mentioned in the first page (quoted above)?

 

Thanks everyone!

Am I allowed to mention a great EBAY tube seller (I HAVE NO affiliation except as a buyer). This guy is 100% straight up with the best tubes, fair prices and what you get is STELLER. I have ordered a variety of tubes from him (12AU7, 12AX7, and our own Aune family of tubes) ..awesome quality.

I've bought from him several times as well and have been very happy with the results.

I have a quick question. I just recently bought the Aune T1 with the electro-harmonix tube. I really like it a lot this far!

I'm looking to buy a new tube just to experiment a little with different tubes.

 

I don't want to spend a lot of money so I searched for one NOS and one new tube. These are the ones that I come up with:

I just want one for the moment. So what do you guys recommend? NOS or a brand new one?

I recommended greengirl613: http://www.ebay.com/usr/greengirl613?_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2754

 

I see no problem recommending known good sellers, it's no different than linking to a tube selling site.

post #4448 of 8013

Okay...good to know...! We want to be able to keep track perhaps of reputable sellers ? By the way, my guy says he ships international ALL the time...so good to know...

Yeah..I never want to disparage. I received a defective tube from her also.

 

~~Vintage Sylvania ECC85 6AQ8 Black Plates Stereo Tube

 

Maybe she sent you mine...LOL

 

She has sent a new tube out though...I just get nervous when I get a bad tube...and hear someone else.

 

Not the case with Tubemaze and a few others

post #4451 of 8013

I've never received a bad tube from her and almost every tube they sell are tested with numbers provided.  Although they do carry lower cost tubes that either don't test as well or weren't tested for leaks and microphonics.

 

Even your biggest distributors are going to have bad tubes and even the ones that claim to test every tube for microphonics and leaks are going to have a few slip through the cracks.

 

I will continue to buy from greengirl613 and I've purchased probably 6 tubes ranging from EL84s to 12AY7s from her; it's not like I haven't also purchased from other sellers too though.

 

 

These two Amperex 6DJ8s look nice and they are legit (you can tell by the ripple on top and the 2 flanges bent at 90 degrees above the mica spacer)

I'm just about ready to pull the trigger on the $129 /shipped deal for this. Bypass my Auzen Forte (after 7 years of service) and replace my FiiO E9 after several years of service with this one unit that will be my sound device for my PC, headphone amp and output to my Denon AVR-1613 receiver. 

 

I know the FiiO E9 has good power, I just can't seem to find anyone that can compare these two amps together...I am looking for more than a side-grade but I realise at this budget that may not be realistic. I paid more for the Auzen card alone in 2009...and around the same for the FiiO in 2011 I think??? I don't recall anymore. 

 

I listen primarily to my HE-400's, I'm planning on getting pads and playing with my D2000's again after I finish fixing them. Is this unit worth my time? I got one yes a couple pages back but was hoping for a few more responses...I've been researching but some like this amp with the 400's some dont...some say different tube some say different amp.

 

I like my bass...I'm not afraid to EQ... but any suggestions on a good bassy tube? Should I just try the stock tube and EQ?

Anyone in Canada wants to pull the trigger on that one with me?

Do you plan on listening to only stereo through your Denon receiver?

Yep. I got a good deal on it for my current 2.1 setup. It's for my PC audio...no 5.1...not enough room or $$ or etc.
