Tralucent T1 appreciation thread - post your experiences and questions here - Page 22

post #316 of 543

T1 received and is burning in. First listen impressions are highly positive. in my rig T1 powers RWA AK100 and Rhapsodio RDB+v1. overall a great amp which does things so right. it somehow makes RWA AK100 sound more full and complete adding analogue-like touch to the sound. overall highly revealing and musical combo not least thanks to T1 which makes both player and RDB+ shine their best. should i say i am so pleased? yes, i am very pleased and happy.

 

update: RDB+v1 with C3 and T1, great sounding combo too.

Agree wholeheartedly! The AK100 plus T1 combo is sweet. AK100 provides the sweet sound, the T1 provides impeccable control.

Loquah, exactly, RWAK seeet + T1 = total control + analogue like sound... damn happy  :-D

Had to share today's handy-work. I found the AK was sliding around on the T1 when stacked so I bought some non-slip rubber mat (blue mesh peaking out under the AK in the picture below) and used double-sided tape to hold it to the T1. I also stuck the rubber band to the bottom of the T1 to prevent it moving up over the AK screen. The stack is now super secure, the AK sits really neatly on the T1 and the sound is magical (not that I had any influence over the sound).

Loquah, can you tell how many hours of playback you get from single charge on your AK? my RWAK seems to have some weird battery meter and battery life is not much better than Ibasso... i use FLAC playback and amp... my player dies after about 10 hours and less... battery meter completely unreliable as it is, showing 70% before player powers off .... then meter shows low battery on restart. weird thing, as much as i love its sound i hate battery.

Sure thing. I'll give it a good go tomorrow and see. It's hard to say now because I have been syncing really regularly as I rearrange my playlists to choose what music to have on each of the 3 memory locations.

Loq, question solved, got some opinions on ak100 thread... As regards meter would appreciate your response because my rwak has unreliable meter at all.

Wow...great sound from this tiny Tralucent T1.  

 

Extremely powerful with good sound stage and imaging.  Cannot imaging such a small package could do so much.  

 

IMHO this is one highly competitive "portable" amp against most of the big guns out there.  Highly recommended.

Yes it is awesome with either DX100 or Tera. And with ALL my iems. Best portable amp out there in size / quality / price / versatility IMO. I am just reluctant to pair with the Tera because the point of the Tera is to be on its own in my opinion.

My Sony MDR EX1000 needs that extra push from a portable amp. The T1 is excellent to get the job done

Same for me with both the Hifiman REOs and the Yamaha Eph-100. They both sound good out of the Tera by itself, but when I include the Tralucent, they sound great. This amp has a lot of bang for the buck. I feel it is equal to the Continental amp I have which cost twice as much and is at least 4 times as big. I went back and forth, but have decided to keep the Tralucent amp and sell the Continental. The Tralucent pairs up better with iems, and is of course much more of a size fit with the Tera.

T1 is very analytical while the TP is musical...a good compliment to each other
post #328 of 543
T1 is right sounding, i find it adding analogue like signature and this is its strength. i would not call T1 analytical or warm, i would call it correct sounding.

i use T1 with RWA AK100 and while player in house Dac is great on its own i find T1 adding more control and black color bringing the player on the next level.

so i am not surprised T1 pairs so well even with best of best players because it has this unique ability to make music flow organically and removes stress...

Now i will go for Tralucent T1 for sure to pair with my AK100.

I will see how that combination works out.
