Why buy from us?

Lumin U1 Mini Audiophile Network Transport

The power of U1 in a smaller package

A new case and internal low noise switching PSU keeps the price low and performance high.

Why LUMIN U1 MINI

Following the huge success of LUMIN D2, we 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 LUMIN U1 and LUMIN D2

◾Identical processor supports DSD256 and 384khz playback
◾Quad native clock system for precision timing
◾Low noise shielded switching power supply
◾5 types of digital audio output including USB
◾MQA Decoding
◾Resamping to every supported format up to DSD128
◾Supports DoP (DSD over PCM) for Optical, Coaxial RCA, Coaxial BNC & AES/EUB

Take control

The LUMIN App is created in harmony with the LUMIN hardware to deliver the most intuitive and visually rich way to browse, select and play your music collection. It represents our vision of how to make music browsing and playback easy, visual, and tactile.

Always one step ahead

LUMIN is always evolving.

In 2017 every LUMIN model gained campatibility with Roon, MQA and Spotify Connect — all absolutely free of charge.

Musical performance

We put a huge amount of effort into sourcing the highest-grade matching components, creating truly balanced circuits, designing cases that shield from interference, etc, etc, but it's only important if the end result effectively communicates the intentions of the artist. Notably, the common thread in every published and consumer review of all LUMIN products is musicality.
