Aune T1 USB Tube DAC+ SS Amp Discussion Thread ***See first post for FAQ--Updated on 02/14/15*** - Page 32
Gear mentioned in this thread:
I already bought one, but it makes the whole plug very bulky and takes almost 2 sockets out of my extension cord. I would prefer to replace the cord. The cord from aune to transducer is only just and just long enough to reach the floor from my table. In many cases there is a cord from product to transducer and from transducer to wall plug.
Too intimate? What do you mean by it? With 6922EH it already is very wide & spacious sounding. Too close and unclear? I think by clearer tube you mean that you need more foward & narrower sounding tube because if you take even more wider-sounding tube, vocals will get even more "lost" imho. Rocket logo 6N23P should be more narrow & foward sounding tube than 6922EH. At least reflector logo 6N23P certainly is and when to read internet reviews, rocket one also. But well, ppl hear things differently and maybe its also about K702 paired with Aune T1.
Just comparing to E17. Thats the best I can describe it, but basically with E17 treble +2db the vocals feel clearer and there seems to be more space between the singer and me. But like I said this was only first impression after listening about an hour or two. 6922 sounds great but I'm pretty sure I can find better tube for my taste.
This is because of a personal recommendation from other forumist with K702 annies. The price was 8 dollars for 2 tube + delivery, so I guess its not the end of the world if I don't like the rocket.
I think you might very well be right here. Especially because the anniversary editions have memory foam ear pads that allow the drivers to be even closer to your ear. And again don't get me wrong about the sound quality of the 6922. These are just first impressions and coming from E17 with my own EQ settings I just need to get used to the sound first. I think I prefer vocals with E17 and bass / overall tone with T1/6922. If only I could find a tube that combines the best from these both. That would make me a happy man.

Seems like an extraordinarily low price. Is this legitimate?
I ordered from that exact seller on Monday. -- Its direct from China.
Its through Alibaba, they are a third party and don't give the seller the payment until I sign off on the delivery.
I still have not gotten shipping notification but it should be anytime now.
