It was one of my first thoughts,  although I don't have a charger for the 9V battery.  :p

I was going to leave two screws in the top plate only..  I have chargers for AA battery's no 9V connection though. 

Doh. :(

Regarding Shigzeo's review, I am thinking that the T1 was designed to compliment the 1P2 and to bring warmth to take the edge of the analytical "brightness" or "clarity" or "sharpness"(if you will)?   Yet with my warm, thick AS2, it definately tightens and deepens the bass and somehow makes the mids and highs clearer and sharper.   (Sorry, I admit my descriptions are monkee vs audiophile speak, I need to study the excellent glossary of terms on the site.)

I think that's a pretty good theory indeed. Having heard them both I can see the tonalitys blending well.

I really need to get my hands on some ASG-2s to see what everyone is talking about.

Ok, the new battery arrived and the amp is performing very well, much better. Sounds fantastic, the volume pot is more responsive, there's more power and clarity is pushing through with ease and the soundstage is very wide. Sounds like a reborn amp. Thanks for everyone's help.

Awesome. So glad to hear!!

T1 is a magic simple inexpensive terrific sounding amp which saved me from spending more pennies on ALO, RSA or Vorzuge amps, glad i found out about T1 before pulling a trigger.

Btw, H20, i sold my DX50, good DAP no problems but amp section of DX50 sucks big way frown.gif

And another good news, i decided to keep my V1 which pairs amazingly well with S9.

now i am on the fence waiting for Calyx M and if M will be good to me then my portable gear journey almost ends, will add uBer cable later and done. biggrin.gif

The secret of T1 sound as i hear it:
T1 is true to source, it will keep signal clean and powerful enough for IEMs, some very small coloration might be more because of IEM rather than because of T1.
I call my T1 a cleaner and organiser, when i use it on RWAK100 i find no change in sound sig but what i hear is better separation and articulation, especially lower mids get very clean space. Perhaps not ideally uncolored but T1 is much truer to source than many other amps i heard.

And the best part of the news is T1 price which is well under 300$ and makes it a good bargain compared to more expensive ALO or RSA amps.

You sold your DX50? I just bought another one. :p It's a long complicated story but I have one again for long term stabilization testing!

The T1 is now performing well, I think most obvious changes is soundstage width, no longer closed in how I heard it previously.

 Rather wide now and airy. I use it with C3 for the time being as DX50 is running a pair of Shure  SHR940. (I'd like to think I'm done for a while /purchases)

May I know what battery you have purchased?

Wanna try swapping batteries around.
