FS: Aune T1 Tube DAC / Amp + Amperex Tube
Will Ship To: CONUS
I purchased this DAC/Amp a few days ago. However, I've realized that I could get pretty deep into the whole tube-rolling scenario and I already have the Little Dot I+ amp and a good DAC, so I'll put this up for sale.
Photos in listing are actual photos. As you can see this Aune T1 tube DAC / Amp is in pristine condition.

The Aune T1 Thread and Tube Discussions:
Personal Observations: This is a great Tube DAC / amp when paired with my Grado headphones. The two tube options that are present, offer one some flavor of some of the many options available. Others have indicated this DAC / Amp can be a bit bright. While I think it is a bit north of neutral, it still paired well with my Grado RS1i and Grado PS-500. In fact, I didn't think it was any brighter than my Little Dot I+ with stock tubes and the HeadAmp DAC that I have.
When you initially power on the device, the tube will start to glow. There is then a wait time of about 45 seconds and then the base where the tube in mounted will glow with a white light. When this is present, the amp / DAC can be used for listening.
For the money, this is really a great little package. Just too much going on in my life that's consuming my free time, so I'll pass this along for now until more free time opens up.
Questions? Send me a PM and I'll do my best to answer them.
