Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro 250 ohm. MacBook Pro -> iTunes -> BitPerfect -> Aune T1 -> DT 990. Audio files were mentioned in the review. Mostly ALAC files, some 24 bit 88.2 files too.

I can't seem to find any good deals on tubes, and everyone seems to find a deal. Can someone PM me a deal on a tube that they don't want. I prefer PM as public posts seem to be in the "limelight" and snatched by someone else

 

Much appreciated.

 

Confused between a GE 6aq8 and a GE 6gm8, but some people think others are better. Prefer to buy the best vfm tube within 30usd. Listen to all genres

Here is a picture of my Aune T1 capacitors all in place.  The entire unit is not together yet, but you can see all the caps are in place.  The on/off switch and the USB jack aren't even soldered in yet, I had to desolder them due having trouble getting the PCB back in (I don't recommend removing it due to all the things that must slide in perfect). 

 

(The caps I posted for sale are in the pic below, right beside the Nichicon FW large primaries)

Ohhhhhhh I just got the John Mayer: Where the Light Is bluray and it contains a PCM uncompressed 24bit/96khz stereo audio track!!! :)

 

So crazy.

Yep, the source of the material you are listening to really matters for really experiencing everything fully.  I own around 20 or so concert/music related Blu-Rays some of my favorites are Eric Clapton Crossroads 2013 (LPCM 2.0), Joe Bonamassa An Acoustic Evening at the Vienna Opera House (LPCM 2.0), Joe Bonamassa Hammersmith Apollo (LPCM 2.0)

 

This is all at 48KHz/24bits

Bought the Aune T1 a couple of weeks ago and I'm loving it... sounds great with HD 650's. I've read some people mention it works well with K 702's as well, but for now I am enjoying my audio bliss with the 'stock' 6922EH. (Perhaps audio ignorance as well :P )

 

Managed to find some great tubes on ebay in the last couple of days thanks to some amazing members posting here with their recommendations. Thanks! For anyone like me who is interested in finding tubes, I'd recommend adding a bunch of the sellers people have posted from on here. They found the tubes they were looking for using them, so chances are you will as well. Good luck!

Depending on how adventurous you are, you can make the inside of your Aune T1 look like mine above  :veryevil:

Did anyone take out the white LED lighting under the tube on the Aune T1? It's too distracting. I'm not adventurous enough to do it yet unless someone here has, and can comment on the process.

post #4795 of 8013
I was thinking of coloring the LED with an orange sharpie to give it a Woo firefly look. Anyone try this idea?
post #4796 of 8013

People have replaced the LED under there with red or orange LED or you can just remove it from the circuit.  All you have to do is cut off two leads I would assume, preferably close to the PCB and you may have to short it.

Seems like a fun hack. Anyone know the particular LED bulb to buy on eBay or The Source?
post #4798 of 8013

So I had a quick question.  I've had my T1 for a few weeks now and while I loved the stock 6922EH tube, I decided I'd try to roll in a new tube to see what kind of difference it would make.  After doing some research on the different tubes that would fit my little T1, I decided to go with the Genalex Gold Lion e88cc tube.  I ordered it from Amazon and it arrived a few days ago.  I took the stock tube out and put in the Genalex tube and the first thing I noticed was that it did not glow like the stock tube did.  Didn't really think anything of it at first, but then when I went to actually listen to the new tube it was suddenly really quiet, like 50-75% quieter than the stock tube.  I had to put the gain on the T1 all the way up and I have the volume knob at like 80% and it seems just about loud enough. Is this normal, or did I get a dud tube?  Thanks for any help!
