bleh..i already have a 6922 tube from the Aune T1...to get or not to get??! dat 3 band EQ is so tempting
couldn't agree more.
tubes should be replaced straight out of the box.
If you're ok with some DIY work, replacing the transistors and caps makes this one beat any amp under $250 for sure.
explain tube rolling to me please?
I was planning on either bypassing my Aune T1 Amp, or my Fiio E17 Alpen Amp for the DACs, into the Bravo V3 IF I get it.
Basically trying out different tubes. I personally have been getting different NOS (new old stock) tubes and comparing the sound signatures. So far I've tried GE, Electro harmonix and RCA. I really want to try a mullard but the legit looking ones are kinda pricey for me, and the company that makes them now charge quite a bit for them. GE are my favorite so far, but I just got into tube amps so we'll see how that changes. Anyways, sorry for the long post, here's some good starting source material for you. http://hktubeaudio.homestead.com/files/Best_of_the_Best_12AU7.htm
Audio is relative and we all have different opinions on good sound so it really is a gamble, hope it helps!
Yee. From the Aune T1 description, it said a NOS would make a punchier bass. How much are tubes anyway?
They are roughly $5-10 for most 12AU7/A tubes(all I'm familiar with), although some can get pricey.
Where can I find some 12AU7 besides ebay?
Bravo V3 will take 6922 tubes.
If you want the 12AU7 model, get the Bravo V2 or the Ocean.
Bottom line -
Stock V2 and V3 sound almost exactly the same (got both).
Good quality 12AU7 are much cheaper and more common than 6922.
