Anyone that has used a forum before can obviously tell my response was to arcorob, the post was directly after his post..

 

What you are saying is like, well you posted something, so anyone on this entire forum can say that post is in response to them.

exactly,you are correct  

post #4505 of 8013

Hi guys,

 

I have a Pioneer SA 8800, connected to a pair of technics sb lx50, pretty simple, but I really love its sound.I also use a pair of K271 MkII.

 

Do you think I could use this DAC ? Am I going to notice any improvements ?

 

Thanks,

Only if you are inputting digital music as a source.... :bigsmile_face:

Good, my input is mostly digital,

 

some vinyls from time to time,

 

Do you have any other recommendation, preferrably below USD 200 ? I'm in Argentina and with our exchange rates I have to be really decided when I buy something since I receive it via ship and it takes a month or so. Sadly it is still being cheaper for us than buying it here, plus if you want to get it here you don't have any model you want, you just have to deal with a few brands with not all the products being available.

 

Thanks!

I think you will do just great with the AUNE. Simple USB out of your PC or tablet, to the DAC, and RCA out of the AUNE to your system. You will find the sound to be quite stunning. Plus, you get the added benefit of trying different tubes to flavor the sound. I read about you system and I think even the stock 6922EH tube will do wonders as the speakers could benefit from the detail.

 

Best of luck

I should have said a bit more.......

 

I checked my caps with an ESR meter and a couple failed.

 

And you said something about you doubt anyone in here could learn something. You dont know who is in this thread. 

 

But anyways, back on topic.

^^ He could use USB for his digital file and then use the line in with the RCA inputs for his records to amplify his headphones.  That way he gets amplification for his analog material and a DAC/Amp for his digital music.  Sounds like a good fit to me.

To all those who know the Etymotic Research ER-4S's, and have tried them on the Aune T1, I would be happy to hear your experience as I have the T1 on my shortlist. I have a Mullard PCC88 which I plan to use, which gives nice results in my current Indeed hybrid amplifier.  How well pleased do you think I will be with my ER-4S's fed by the Aune?

Hey all

 

Just finished reading this thread (whew), and I'm left with a few questions. 

 

1. I bought the aune t1 before I read about the capacitor issue. Should I be concerned? If you were me, would you return it in favor of something else?

 

2. I have he-400's. I used to have DT-990's, and while their sound signature is similar, the 400's are a step up in every respect. That said, it suffers from the same problem: hot treble and recessed mids, though a tad less marked. I've always loved tubey sound, and so I'm looking for a particular tube that would increase those mids and tame the highs. I already have the Amperex OG's; after reading the thread it seemed to fit the bill. So I ask people who have had headphones with this frequency response, what's the best tube for smoothing highs without losing that much detail?

 

Thanks

You read the whole thread ? Wow...you know its 2014 now right? LOL

 

I can answer #1

 

Don't worry...it sounds beautiful...some of us sticklers like to play...

 

#2 I cant answer...I play mine through a system...speakers and headphones...night and day..and for me (just me) I am not super fond of the AUNE headphone amp...I LOVE it as a DAC...but others can tell you which tube with those headphones will sound sweet...

post #4515 of 8013

Yeah. Hehe. It was entertaining. I mainly read it for the tube reviews.
