Aune T1 MK2 Headphone Tube DAC/Amp Combo
Aune T1 MK2 Headphone Tube DAC/Amp Combo
Desktop DAC/Amp
While the Aune T1 MK1 earned rave reviews from Head-fi users across the globe, there was one primary criticism levied against the DAC and Amp combo: the lack of asynchronous data transfer. Keeping the same tube DAC structure and an integrated amplifier to power your cans, Aune answered those concerns by adding the necessary hardware to achieve asynchronous data transfer for decreased jitter and increased clarity.

Note: We've heard the community's feedback and are offering the option to purchase the Aune T1 MK2 without the Gold Lion tube at an even more competitive price. Additionally for this drop, we have secured a maximum quantity of 120 units that will be ready to ship soon after the drop ends. At check-out, you will have your choice of color between Black and Silver and Voltage between 110V and 220V.

What Makes an Asynchronous DAC Better?
Construction
This all-in-one audio solution is compact and elegant with solid aluminum housing and a minimal size. The amplifier was designed to drive high impedance headphones all the way up to 600 ohms without any clipping or distortion. That kind of power to price ratio means you'll be able to rock some of the most power hungry headphones and still make rent this month.
Versatility
The Aune T1 also features audio-in and audio-out functions through the RCA ports. This lets you use the T1 as a dedicated DAC (with active speakers like the Audioengine A5+) or a dedicated amplifier (with a different DAC like the Matrix M-Stage DAC).
Tube Design
Your T1 uses the extremely ubiquitous 6922 tube, so it's easy to customize your sound through tube rolling. Want more kick in your bass? Nab a NOS Amperex 6922 from the 60's. Want more attack on the high end? Grab a Gold Pin Tesla 6922. As the Aune T1 MK2 uses only one tube, you don't have to fool with matched pairs and the possibilities are endless.
Gold Lion Custom Tube
To get the most out of your Aune T1, you have the option to add a Gold Lion Custom Tube to your order. Bringing you a dead silent output at low volumes and enriching your sound when cranked up, the Gold Lion hits the full range with smooth tones and great gain.
