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.
The Lumin U1 Mini combines the best of the U1 and D2 to bring your digital music all the way through to your choice of DAC. Features such as a low-noise power supply and precision timing mean the U1 Mini delivers the best quality music from any of your sources. Capable of upsampling and downsampling all the way from 44.1kHz to DSD128 and supporting playback of DSD256, the Lumin U1 Mini matches the U1 in almost every area - except price.

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.

Once you start playing an album, you won’t fail to be impressed by the sound quality from the Lumin U1 Mini. But the bass… oh the bass!

Further up in the spectrum I found the sound of kick-drum was similarly impressive, always hearing an instant transient, with no preecho, and the sound never lasted longer than the strike. more...
