Aune T1 USB Tube DAC+ SS Amp Discussion Thread ***See first post for FAQ--Updated on 02/14/15*** - Page 535

post #8011 of 8013

Hello, I have been using my T1se for a few weeks now and is planning to upgrade the tube. I am in the UK so ebay is probably my only source to buy new tubes. I am currently looking at the following. Which would be the best?

 

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ECC88-CV5358-BRIMAR-NOS-BOXED-VALVE-TUBE-/310087990709?hash=item4832af3db5:g:PcoAAOSwDNdV5rdt

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/6922-E88CC-ECC88-6DJ8-PHILIPS-ECG-VALVE-TUBE-/260662166606?hash=item3cb0ad044e:g:w3EAAOSwwpdW1vfV

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ECC88-6DJ8-SIEMENS-Ei-NOS-BOXED-VALVE-TUBE-/310930099354?hash=item4864e0cc9a:g:YfYAAOxylpNTS7iD

 

 

or does it worth paying a bit more for a used Amperex Bugle Boy?

You have a good source of tubes locally http://www.langrex.co.uk/.

It is not cheapest one but have really good tubes. Choosing of tube depends on your headphones and taste. So you could ask peoples with same headphones and musical taste or just try various tubes.

Just for example: First of your links (Brimar) is good tube for me. I have Siemens and Philips but I don't like it. Other peoples like Philips, another like Siemens.

Good luck in your searching!
