Music streaming is very much here to stay, and puts instant access to tens of millions of songs at your fingertips. LUMIN network players bring together all of your favourite streaming and locally stored digital music, and let you enjoy it through your existing audio system as a single source. LUMIN brings the highest quality to digital music and brings a listening experience rivaling that of vinyl, but with all of the convenience and selection offered by streaming services.
With LUMIN M1, the aim was simple: take all the award-winning sonic characteristics that the Lumni music players are renowned for and surprise people with just how amazing an integrated system can sound.
18 months of continual development has lead to LUMIN's uniquely efficient design including an oversized switching power supply and a fully-digital signal path all the way to the speaker outputs.
Out-performing larger and more expensive separates, LUMIN M1 shouldn't be dismissed as a second system. With 60W of amplifying power, it can drive room-filling speakers and has the same musical heart as every other LUMIN music player.
For connecting to a line-level analog device, such as a CD player, LUMIN offers an RCA to USB converter kit, so you can connect analog devices to the M1 through its USB port.
“My immediate impression of the M1’s sound was one of precision, with a clear definition of space and crisp rendering of transients.” — AL GRIFFIN, SOUNDSTAGE!
The recent transition from physical music to digital collections hasn't always retained everything we value in the tactile and stimulating process of music selection. The artwork and album structure are important parts of the browsing and selection process; and filenames, codecs and data can sometimes get in the way.
All LUMIN control is achieved through the free LUMIN App. It was created to work in harmony with the LUMIN hardware to deliver the most intuitive and visually rich way to browse, select and play your music collection.
All LUMIN network players are certified as Roon ready, which means they'll drop right into your existing setup if you're a Roon user.

Given the design focus of the LUMIN M1, I never felt as though there was any obvious weakness. I loved the convenience of being able to activate it from my phone as soon as I rose from sleep, and I was constantly blown away by how competently it drove my ELAC speakers, no easy feat. I actually struggled to find fault with the LUMIN M1, it does everything it has set out to with aplomb. more...
