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.

Always one step ahead
LUMIN is always evolving. The full LUMIN range benefits from our programme of continuous development, allowing you to relax in the knowledge that wherever possible we'll bring you the latest streaming technologies. In 2017 every LUMIN model gained campatibility with Roon, MQA and Spotify Connect — all absolutely free of charge.
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.
