LUMIN

The Lumin Audiophile Network Music Player
supporting iPad (or other tablet) control of Ethernet audio networks and independent USB server/HDD playback. The Lumin decodes DSD native including DSD over PCM (DoP), and includes DSD up-conversion, variable bit rate output, PCM lossless streaming to 32bit/384kHz, gapless playback and PCM up-sampling.No wonder Lumin refers to itself as 

"THE FIRST UNIVERSAL(PCM AND NATIVE DSD)NETWORKPLAYER"

FIRST OR NOT ,THE LUMIN NETWORK PLAYERS ARE UNQUESTIONABLY UNIVERSAL IN THEIR APPLICATION AND WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT THEY SOUND BETTER THAN ANY STREAMER /DACS WE HAVE HEARD VAGUELY CLOSE IN PRICE.

What makes Lumin Truly  unique in our eyes is that all this performance is contained in a package that is easier to use than any other network player with the most robust and detailed Ipad app made.perio

 

 

Introduced in 2012, The LUMIN A-1 has garnered lavish praise from reviewers including the Likes of TAS

which awarded it Product of the Year  for 2014 in the category of upper end music servers

In the review and the Awards issue Neil Gader writes

"Had I not known better, I would have sworn I was listening to mastertapes.”It was an impression of resolution, soundstage integrity, and clean transient speed...reaching a level of musicality that will make even diehard analog fans forget its computer roots." TAS Issue 249

LUMIN A-1

 
 Hi-FI PLus ,6moons  and Positive Feedback, to name a few .

 A-1 back

 To us it is the go to Network Player under $ 12000.00  

 Lumin even solves the most annoying part of setting up a network streamer:configuration of a nas with minim software for DSD playback..

Introducing the L-1,Lumin"s own UPnP 2tb server. which  takes all the angst out of  setting up a NAS drive.

Preconfigured with Lumins own version of Minim software ,all you have to do is connect the L-1 to your computer and drag and drop the files from it to the L-1.The L-1 does the rest.!all for $1200.00!
