Lumin A1 Network Music Player
The Absolute Sound 2014 Product of the Year Award Winner (High-End Music Server of the year)
“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.”
– Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound
