My aune t1 is cranky... :(

 

Left can is overdriving... It is not always, but a lot of time. I don't know how it happens. It's propably something with headphone amp - because if i play from external source with audio input in aune it is still.

 

Has anyone something like that? Any issue?

Currently switching between Brimar ECC88, Voskhod 6N23P and Phillips Miniwatt 6BQ7A tubes for my Aune T1. I like the Voshkods the most for pop/modern music.

If the external source is via the RCA in, then it's not the amp. The amp bypasses the dac entirely. If you get the issue when playing via USB and headphone out and RCA out is effected, it's the dac.

"If the external source is via the RCA in, then it's not the amp. The amp bypasses the dac entirely. If you get the issue when playing via USB and headphone out and RCA out is effected, it's the dac"

No, i think it is in other way! When i use other dac, and aune t1 as amp, then i have still overdriving. When i use only by aune still is overdriving. I dont have any other amp here so i cant use aune only as a dac at this moment. But i think, that if i will use aune only as a dac it will be ok. Anyone knows what it can be? Something popular?

What is the external source? A laptop? How are you using this external source?

Looking to pair this with Fidelio X1's

 

Is there any point in upgrading the valve/tube?

 

If so what is the best value for money in terms of performance tube out there?

 

I bought the Fidelio X1's not because they are the best but they offer incredible value for money and I want the same from a DAC/AMP so was just wondering what the best options are for pairing with Fidelio X1's?

 

Use them for music mainly rap, hip hop, rnb, dance, pop, etc as well as movies and tv shows.

 

I'm in the UK so anyone know of a decent supplier out here?

 welcome to the T1 thread. It's pretty ponderous, and picking through the entire thread is a bit of chore. But if you use the "search this thread" button at the top of the page, you'll quickly find lots of chatter about the X1-T1 combo including some specific recommendations about tubes. Let us all know what you decide and how it all sounds to you.

The external source is dac smsl sd793 :)

Yes, so you're using the aune t1's rca in, which bypasses the dac so you're just using the t1's amp. So it's not the amp that's overdriving. it's the dac itself.

Yes, im using only amp and oerdriving still is.

post #5426 of 8013

Dude, he's bypassing the DAC when overdriving happens. How can that be because of the DAC. It's the amp portion, not DAC.

post #5427 of 8013
Yeah, I went back and re-read his post, the last sentence makes more sense now. He wasn't say "it's still(calm)", he's saying that "it's still [there]". My bad. redface.gif

well i ordered military grade 6N23P.

 

i was just wondering if there was a go to tube for pairing with the X1.

 

but it seems like it's all subjective and depends on the type of sound you want to suit you personally.

 

starting to think maybe a solid state dac would of been better as i am going to end up plowing lots of money testing tubes now instead of just enjoying the kit i have.

I love my Voshkod 6N23P tube - you won't regret it. I use the Aune T1 as a standalone DAC/AMP combination, though.

I've got a T1 and X1 and 9 different tubes. I can give you some impressions if I get a little time to do so.
