It would be great if MD could pull the 2017 model updated
drop it again already!!
So when will it ship?
I just want to confirm this is the MK2 version right?
Starks
This is the MK1 version I believe.
No international shipping
Harsain
I've added international shipping for you. However, we only have 110V left in stock, so, not sure if it will work for most international orders.
Mark
thanks a lot
Why is shipping not available outside the US?
Thanks Massdrop for sorting this out. +1 for customer service.
Still waiting as well :-(
Please drop this again! This is the ultimate DAC/Amp at it's price point IMO.
The item Has arrived :)
But my electric connector is in America type :(
Angel899
Lucky you. Mine is still not here...
Still nothing for me....
Received today in france the 220v version , works great !
"Unfortunately Aune short-shipped us so we're waiting on more 220V units. There are 6 orders missing on the 220V's, the rest were shipped out a couple weeks ago. I'll ask for a status update about the 220V units, hopefully we can get it out to you soon."

Fair enough, Mark. Thanks for the update and we shall wait patiently. It's reassuring that you are on it, all we needed to know :-)
Hi Mark, any news for the ones still waiting?
"Unfortunately, it is not guaranteed to have package tracking outside of the USA. Please be patient and allow up to 3-4 weeks for arrival. "
So we have to wait....
Angel899
My shipping address is in the US and I also have no tracking. As @EyeD mentioned, you don't get a tracking number as some are not shipped yet. This is support not checking the situation and just using standard answers. Support should be able to see that your T1 specifically hasn't shipped yet. @massdrop: am not angry about longer wait, that's ok. Shit happens. But you could inform your customers properly and not shush them off with standard answers. Even if it is only 6 people who apparently haven't received their shipment yet. A short email with: "guys, sorry the 220v units have not yet arrived, we have not forgotten you, we get them to you as quickly as we can." Would have been great....
I have the same... So, we can only wait...
Angel899
Yes, still no news - waiting for our 220V versions - It would be great to have at least a tracking number - but I guess that's not possible in this case for some reason.
I received mine today (quick shipping), but am only getting sound through the right ear of my headphones. Anyone else had this issue? Thanks.
Hey, for some odd reason my order still hasn't shipped yet, is anyone else in the same boat?

I am having the same thing with the 220V black version
EyeD
Well I keep on waiting while the support keeps on not understanding my question. So I guess that's all we can do.
I buy and sell DACS just to listen to them and get some perspective on the sounds. I owned the Aune T1 with an upgraded tube and it was the best to date, besides the Schiit BiFrost I owned. But HRT, Audioengine, Cambridge, and even my Oppo 95--it beat all those. I hooked it up to my mac and ran passive speakers thought it.Great buy.
Anyone get one? When it will arrived to Europe?
Angel899
Hey, I also ordered one with european specs but delivery in NY (my shipping forwarder address) and didn't get it yet - even though shipping inside US should be fast. I guess the 220-240V version is not yet shipped or is shipping out slower than the rest. We can only be patient, it will arrive eventually...
Just received! Works like a charm & sounds amazing!!
Hey everyone, Just received my Aune T1 and super excited to get it plugged in and testing, however I can't manage to get that cardboard covering on the plastic tube covers off... Is there a trick to this?
Maikuru
Scratch the hell out of an edge. I thought I was sent wooden ones at first until I started peeling one actually!
Maikuru
Yea the trick is to not bother using them, they're worthless anyway.
Got mine today, so far so good. Thanks!
Just a reminder for all the new owners, the stock tube is ok but in no way brings out the magic of what this device can do. Get to ebay and get your Amperex Orange Globe now while you can find one cheap.
This is my first drop of many to come, but there is one thing I want to note.
Despite how much faster this drop finished and shipped compared to other drops (from what I read) orders going to California (and maybe the rest of the west coast?) were shipped using 3-day shipping while my friend on the east coast had his shipped using 2-day. I can see why this would be done, but being close to the shipper doesn't always mean it will be faster than the estimated date. Mine is actually going to take the full 3 days, 1 day slower than his.
It's free shipping so I can't really complain, but considering that we are paying the same price regardless and ON TOP OF THAT we have to pay sales tax in California, I'm essentially paying a lot more for less. Of course you don't get anything from the sales tax, and you are required to charge it, but still...
I really appreciate what you guys do for us, arranging these and even offering free shipping, but I just think that these points should be considered.
Horocchi
Really? I'm from California and mine was shipped with Priority Mail 1 Day shipping. It should be coming in an hour or two!
bobadrunk
Mine was definitely 3-day but it ended up coming today, 1 day ahead of schedule. I guess their shipping is really random then. 1, 2, and 3 day randomly haha. But again, it's free shipping and a good price, so I can't really complain. Even 3 day is way better than the crap free shipping most eBay sellers use.
Hey everyone, We’re happy to report that all of the orders have been shipped out! Thanks again for the support guys. Make sure to share your experience with the Aune T1 on Massdrop. If there’s anything else we can do to make your Massdrop experience better, feel free to email us at support@massdrop.com.
nelson
Yeah, great news. Cheers.
I'm happy to get one of these. Saw this 5h before it ends. It's was my first purchase here and certainly not my last. :) I'm curious if it passes through customs in germany, hehe.
Hey MD team, any updates on the shipping? Waiting is not my strength :-)
koolpep
Well then, Massdrop is a great avenue for you to learn patience... as in the virtue of. If you want speed in delivery over amazing savings, pay more at Amazon.
I am also only a consumer like you. From this drop's description page: "Shipping: Domestic and international orders will be shipped through the Massdrop fulfillment center. Estimated time until product leaves the fulfillment center: 5 business days."
infosecgurus
Well, I guess I have to...The last two drops I participated in were sent well ahead of schedule, hence my question. Anyhow with 3 more pending drops for shipping now, I hope to have some new toys soon.
Would this be overkill to use as a standalone DAC with my N22 amp? I've been looking for a standalone DAC for a while now, do I have better options for the price?
Also, if I were to use this as a DAC, would I want to plug my headphones into this or still into my N22 (which would be plugged into the T1 obviously).
arashb
I'd get an ODAC unless you really want to tube roll.
Hmmm when I power it on the light filament dosent glow. I know my universal travel adpator is working because the powerbrick that conencts to the aune is warm. Faulty one?
BecauseImHappy
Hard to say, check the tube (fully inserted), check all connections to the T1 especially the power cable. Then if that doesn't get you anywhere, check with a voltmeter that the power brick of the Aune T1 is indeed working properly.
I'm sorry forgive me for this noob question but I have no clue how to work the t1. Power is Connected via universal travel adaptor: Check. Connected to Front panel Usb: Check. 3.5mm jack is connected to the front via the 6.5mm adaptor thingy: check.
If someone could help me that would be great. I've tried searching the interwebs but I havent found anything and the manual it gives is very vague.
My computer's motherboard also uses realtek audio manager btw.

Yes but you said earlier that you needed a US to AUS power adapter, which would imply that you purchased the 110v version instead of the 220v version that you needed. If not, my mistake. Just trying to help. If you did get the 220v one then that's not a US adapter.
Horocchi
Ye sorry about that, I meant the US 2 pronged style power insert.
