Wonder if anyone has try the Schiit new tube with the T1? I'm looking for a new tube since the stock one seems to have gone bad (weird rattling sound in the bass department, let's hope it's the tube issue), and the schiit tube seems to have longer lifespan than the normal tube. How long does normal tube last anw? Mine gone bad after 6 months. (about 4 hour usage per day)
I have been using an Amperex 7308 (nos 1968) for at least two years and I hope to get much more out of it. Still sounds great. The problem is you can't tell with tubes, another one might last only a couple of months. As for the Schiit tube, I don't know which one you mean. The Aune T1 uses tubes of the 6922 / 6DJ8 / 7308 / PCC88 family. Many sites like Upscale Audio have much info on tube selection.
