I got mine today. It was just sitting near my front door when i got home, scary! No duty or extra fees though which is really nice.<br /><br />Everything seems to be in working order, and it was super easy to get running. It came with the gain setting already set to 16dB and I just left it at that since I'm using DT880 600ohm headphones. I had heard that the Aune T1 and DT880 pairing wasn't great since you're pairing bright headphones with a bright amp but it sounds fine to me so far after an hour of listening to "Ennio Morricone Complete Edition" (CD set). Nice.

Do you guys know how long massdrop normally takes to reply to a support email?<br /><br />Also, does anyone else have specks or impurities on their headphone out jack?

1-2 days is the usual for email replies for most companies. FWIW, I emailed once at 6pm and got a reply at 10am the next day.<br /><br />Got mine yesterday! Works very well, nice unit, for those who have received it, make sure you set it to 24bit/96kHz because windows will default it at 16/48, and there is quite an improvement going to 24/96. Something which surprised me a bit, they included two pairs of those tube protection plastic grills, and given that some mentioned that they broke theirs, having a spare can't hurt!

Responses to my emails have always been fast. Within a day. Email support again.<br />Your unit is absolutely defective. You require a replacement.<br /><br />Also, don't mention Massdrop on Head-Fi. The site owners do not allow discussion of group buys and have an active, zero tolerance policy.

Yeah I got 2 sets as well. They do not seem that fragile to me, but true it never hurts to have a spare just in case.<br /><br />asio4all might help sound quality further on Windows. It really depends on your USB throughput and the Windows kernel. Its also a con, afaik you cannot have the a4a driver mix directsound together.

That would be great if a replacement is possible. Thanks for the heads up as well.

Pro tip: Emailing us multiple times doesn't speed up the response time :)<br /><br />We're just clearing up a backlog from the Fiio customer support stuff (that groupbuy had a problem because Fiio sent everyone European plugs instead of American ones..)<br /><br />We aim for 24 hour responses but it slips to 48-72 hours occasionally. Also, for more 'complicated' requests we try to collect all of the relevant information before responding, which sometimes involves waiting for Visa, USPS, UPSMI, or a 3rd party shipper to respond.<br /><br />Cheers!

No its not that haha. My email on file was from lavabit.com, which had been shutdown after 7 years of solid service.<br /><br />So I was not sure whether or not I had been replied to, so I changed my profile email and resent my message.

I was thinking about picking up the DT880 600ohm. Do you feel that the amp has any trouble driving the headphones? How far do you have to dial it for a comfortable listening level (percent)? Did you note anything else while you were listening? Your feedback/impression would be much appreciated.

Depends if you like bright sound.<br />The Aune T1 will power the DT880 600 Ohm amply.<br /><br />You would be safer with a less bright headphone.

It has enough power for the 600 ohm DT880s I'd say. Having the dial anywhere from 40% to 70% depending on the song is all I need to get to what I'm comfortable with. Any higher and it'd hurt my ears. This is with the gain setting at 16dB.<br /><br />I EQ the treble down depending on the recording as well now that I've had time with it. It definitely gets sibilant sometimes otherwise. I don't feel the need to upgrade further personally, at least not right now. I'm happy with the amp and my headphones. I like the Beyerdynamic sound. I don't know if you will! <br /><br />If you haven't already I'd suggest doing some reading on the DT880s on the Head-Fi forums. They're way better at describing the sound than I'd ever be.
