UPGRADE ALERT - You've got to hear the Lumin U1 MINI powered by the Sbooster Audiophile Power Supply. More body, ease, and increased air. A much lower noise floor. A huge boost in performance for an already impressive component. Highly recommended.
Lumin U1 MINI uses the 12-13V Sbooster (it does not work with the Sbooster Ultra upgrade). You will also need the Lumin connection kit.
Following the huge success of LUMIN D2, LUMIN decided to investigate the possibility of making the LUMIN transport technology similarly accessible.
The result is a huge specification in a compact package.
Capable of upsampling and downsampling all the way from 44.1kHz to DSD128 and supporting playback of DSD256, LUMIN U1 MINI matches the U1 in almost every area - except price.
Transport-only unit combines the best of the U1 and the D2
- Identical processor supports DSD256 and 384khz playback
