I have enough exp with tubes that if I say it will work, it will.


Easy padre, no one is questioning your knowledge and experience. I was erring on the side of caution. Someone misreads and sticks one straight in. Someone gets an adapter and its the wrong kind. Things happen...that don't have to ...but in no way refuting your knowledge, okay ?

I received mine today! For $145 it's an unbeatable deal :) I absolutely love it!! It's pushing my Sennheiser Amperior 32ohm headphones. I put in the Russian Voskhod Rocket tube (got a matched pair for $28 shipped), sounds absolutely wonderful. No harsh brights like the stock tube :)

 

I'm a head-fi noob so I apologize in advance.

 

It sure is pretty!!! I like the tube glow! Pic: http://tafb.xxx/aune_t1_clear.jpg

 

Thanks for all the great info in this thread :D

I just received my Aune T1 in the mail about a half hour ago and I'm trying to play some records on it through my tube amp and I'm getting no sound! The headphone output works just fine but otherwise I get nothing. Anybody have any idea why? 

 

It seems that I get no output from USB whatsoever either O.o

the bass came back around 10 hours after cap burn in  :L3000:

 

 

I'm looking forward to putting these in and breaking them in too:

It takes about 60 seconds for the USB sound to kick in, the tube has to heat up.

I was messing around with different configurations for about 10 minutes or so, and I always allow a few minutes before doing anything for tubes to heat up.

USB output on PC set to Aune T1, USB to Aune and no output via headphone or audio output.

 

Record player to phono preamp to aune to tube amp only works via headphone output not line out. 

 

Tried both on my lepai amp too and was the same.

Just fyi, the rca in doesn't use the tube, just the usb does. rca in only outputs to headphone

First - on the USB out, have you checked that the AUNE is recognized as a device ? You right click your sound icon and look at the devices, Makes sure the USB AUDIO DRIVER IS ACTIVE and checked

 

The PHONO stage in, LINE out to an amp should work as long as the amp is a PREAMP or Receiver, not a power amp..it is a line level..just like a CD player...and the switch on top needs to be switched to LINE and no USB plugged in

Told you it would come back...there are some who don't believe in cap break-in...but I believe my ears..LOL

post #4705 of 8013
Oh, and make sure you move the switch to usb if you're using the hp out. rca out should work regardless of switch position if usb is in use

Yes I made sure that the aune was the primary playback device in both windows and on foobar and neither worked.

 

I tried the line output to both my Magnavox 9304 power amp and my Lepai 2020. Neither made a sound, just hummed at full volume. The switch was set to respective outputs, obviously! 

I didn't know that no USB could be plugged in.. Maybe thats why it wasn't working

 

Just checked, still doesn't work even with USB unplugged

Okay ..first..it should  NEVER go to a power amp... Not sure why it wont work on the Lepai BUT why would you want to ? Your phono stage is a line level input and can go directly to the Lepai, it doesn't need the AUNE. Now the phono stage to the AUNE to use as a headphone amp should work..

 

So --USB out to AUNE to Lepai doesn't let you play music ?

post #4708 of 8013

Thats lame that it wont work going to my power amp! I was hoping to use it just for volume control until I finish my preamp build. 

I guess if thats the case then I just need to figure out why USB to headphone/ line out to lepai doesn't work...

What would be an ideal tube for HD598s?

My 6DJ8 / ECC88 is really a good buddy to my HD 600. :D
