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.

AARGH, terrible news. I just finished posting how much I enjoy the 7308 but how you can never know how long they'll last. Good luck in getting a good replacement.

Thx for the reply. I'll try those lightdims later this week. Might even layer a few on top of each other for some extra dimming...hopefully I'll get a very eyefriendly/pleasing result.

Gosh I love to see more of that warm orange glow!

Hi, can anyone plz help?

EF92 is Vacuum Pentode  tube according to the radiomuseum.org,

Aune T1 are using double triode tubes.

So from my point of view I see only one way to use EF92 in the Aune T1 - just put into and don't power on.:)
