Since its launch in late 2012, news of LUMIN A1 has spread to all corners of the globe, with awards and reviews coming from the industry’s most respected websites and magazines.
Computer Audiophile described LUMIN as “the network player by which all others should be judged” and 6moons’ Joël Chevassus described DSD through LUMIN as “the most exciting audio experience I’ve yet had”.
Effortlessly plays everything from DSD 128 5.6Mhz through high-res PCM to mainstream formats FLAC, Apple Lossless, MP3 and Internet radio streams.
Gapless Playback, On-Device Playlists and robust music buffering provide a superior playback experience, free from distractions.
Precision-machined from a solid block of aluminium using the finest materials, LUMIN deserves a place at the top of any audiophile’s hi-fi.
The highest-grade matching components, circuit design and spacious layout include true balanced audio outputs and an external toroidal power supply.
A superbly natural, attractive and uniquely designed iPad app makes music browsing and selection a pleasure for everyone.
