I've had this DAC/headphone amp for a few years now and it has worked flawlessly. It sounds good too, and the volume-controlled variable RCA outputs is very useful for use with powered speakers. Honestly, I doubt many people could hear the difference between DACs in a blind A/B/X comparison, especially with anything less than world class headphones or monitors.
Folks, my X1 suddenly did not get recognized as an audio device in my windows & apple laptop. any suggestion? Thanks in advance
Absolutely amazing desktop dac/amp. However, $159 is way overpriced. I got mine for around $110 from China.
Anyone have any idea why there's a whine that goes away when you turn it literally all the way up? It appears at about 30%
Well, Massdrop cross-shipped me the replacement unit as promised and it works great. Noise floor gets a little high (squeaky high frequencies) if I CRANK it up, but not such that if I had quiet music playing through it the music wouldn't deafen me before I could hear the squeal.
Eh, tempting as stealing a broken product from the RMA is, I don't know what I'd do with something that doesn't work. :P
hahahahah. so Aune is telling me to take it apart. I'm like "Uh, massdrop guys, what do you think?" They shrug and go "Well, you might as well, before we have to replace it FOR you, if that's what they're saying"

haha... take all the components out and return an empty chassis to them. :-)
Mine works perfectly fine with my Windows7 laptop. Plugged it in and my laptop recognized it immediately without any driver installed. Both pline and line out work.
argh. Yeah, I can't make it work at all. :(
So I just received it, and I can't seem to get it to make any noise through the headphone jack at all. Anyone else having this problem?

Does this unit have EU power supply plug for us Europeans or do we have to buy a 3rd party power supply?
Why was I charged for a tier that I did not commit to?
sharpie
check your e-mail. We seem to be going to have some fix for that? Something?
Where do these shipping figures come from? Why do Canadians always pay far too much?
$40 for shipping to Canada seems unreasonably steep
Does it work with windows 8.1?

That's a hardware problem. It works with any OS regardless. I have an X1 Pro, plugged into a Debian based OS and it runs just fine. Same on Windows 10 Tech preview. The suggestion on optical out, though, is a good one regardless.
Do you need 24/192? Anything above 44.1kHz is just placebo.
Not an audiophile by any stretch of the imagination so I won't go into detail about sound stage, brightness etc., but man does this thing make my headphones sound even more amazing. I bought the Q701s and was always told that they don't need amplification with either my newish Macbook Air or Sony Xperia. That is a pile of crap because I could set both devices at full volume and neither was quite loud enough and I'm not a 16 year old trying to blow my eardrums. Hooked this up and a completely different story. All I can say is that it is well worth the spend if you have a similar setup to mine. No issues with drivers, plug & play all the way.
So the people at head-fi forums are saying that the Aune X1 Pro has major issues with USB controllers. What a shame =(. Wish I dived into deeper research before buying this product.
Edit: I had just received the device - I never had the chance to play around with it due to work commitment and all. On the 8.1 desktop on a 2.0 port, it would detect the amp as a USB composite device with error: This device cannot start. (Code 10) STATUS_DEVICE_DATA_ERROR
On a 8.1 desktop with a 3.0 port, it says USB device not recognized. On device manager it's an unknown USB device (invalid configurator descriptor)
On a Windows 7 laptop with 2.0 port, it says it failed to load the drivers.
So I'm having a lot of difficulty getting this unit to work with Windows 8.1 and 7. My desktop is 8.1 and laptop is 7. Whenever the device is plugged in, it says it's an unrecognized USB device. I've tried updating all my drivers, even disabling all the other drivers one by one. I've tried using a powered USB port, 2.0, 3.0, all to no avail. The site doesn't offer any firmware/drivers. It's all a very frustrating experience. Is it possible that my unit is defective?
Thanks for any help in advance, much appreciated.

If you look at the last post by the Massdrop guys the update isn't due until the 9th (which is tomorrow for me).
Patience my young pad wan.
Daily bump looking for update.
Bump - anything yet?
Any update on shipping?
Thanks for the drop Massdrop!
Quick question for anyone who has DT880s or K702, how does this amp sound with each of these headphones? I'm looking at the K7XX drop but unsure whether I should go for DT880s instead.
Hey! I just ordered the Aune X1 Pro and I was wondering if any of you guys would be able to answer a couple of questions that I have regarding it. I plan to use the X1 for both my headphones and speakers. Would it work for both if they are both connected and I would just need to change the output? If I connect the Line Out from the X1 to my speakers, will I be able to control the volume of the speakers? For reference, I have the Fidelio X1 headphones and the Swans M10 speakers. Thanks!

Good to know! You would think it would be easy to put in the automatic RCA output defeat when headphones are plugged in, but at this price I guess we can't complain too much...
Ohhhhhmygod. This means I can use this thing to do headphones and a subwoofer. ^ ^
Really hope they ship out soon. Excited to try it out :)
