I'm looking so spend less than $300 on the amp and DAC. I've had the chance to listen to the Aune T1 which gets pretty high reviews almost everywhere. However, I heard a significant decrease in bass while using the T1 that I really don't like. I feel like the sound with the T1 is way too thin, at least for what I'm used to. I might even say that I say that I prefer the sound straight out of my laptop than through the T1.
My question is, since I haven't found anyone else with the same issue, could I have done something wrong with the T1, and if so, what? Also, if I didn't do anything wrong, then does anyone have other recommendations? I've been looking into the Schiit Modi and Magni, but a number of reviewers have preferred the T1 over the Schiit stack, so I'm a little worried that I'll also experience a lack of bass with that combo.
