Head-Fi noob here. I look forward to learn more from all of you.
To start out in the world of wallet emptying audiophile world, I've been checking out Aune T1 and Little Dot's MK II as a good entry point.
I read reviews on them but it's extremely difficult to determine strength and preference over one or the other.
Here are some of my questions and pointers.
*I understand T1 only uses tube if connected via USB cable.
*I understand Little Dot MK II needs DAC. But considering it will be connected to laptops or iPhone/iPod, why would I need a separate DAC? laptop or iPhone serves as one no?
*So... here is the big question: For those of you who have tried both, which one do you prefer? I know the answer will be mostly subjective. But I would love to hear what you think is pros and cons of both units.
Other than obvious differences, how was the experience using them? Is T1's USB only limiting tube experience limit the usage as well?
I am really curious about these two.
