If you already own this player, see if it has a configuration option for OpenHome renderer protocol. Lumin app only works on OpenHome renderers.

Roon support is coming soon! :)
Hi psme

 

Is that support via some proprietary streaming arrangement with Roon, or via existing streaming mechanism already going to be supported eg Songcast &Airplay, or have you and other streamer manufacturers managed to convince them to support UPnP?

Great news psme. I tried Roon and liked it but didn't go ahead after the trial because it is a backward step to computers and all the hassle that makes me support Lumin. Tidal works fine for me since they put a server in Hong Kong but Roon with Lumin would be even better.

When, approximately?

Someone showed me Lumin app on iPad Pro. It looks great but I haven't actually tried it to see how it feels. I guess I wouldn't want to use anything heavier than Air 2 though.

 

Beware of iPad Pro charging problems.

I haven't had the opportunity to try it, but I imagine it already does, as the width and height of the app are already fluid.

 

So the width of the playlist will remain constant, but the browse area will expand.

 

The playlist will be longer than on other iPads.

Is the Lumin T1 a great improvment over Lumin D1 + External PSU? In my case its about 1K Eur more.

 

I'm comparing the D1 + Linear PSU vs the A1 as we speak.

 

With my setup (Abyss headphones and Simaudio 600i amp) I prefer the D1. A tad more focused while retaining the same flow and musicality. It's more to do with system synergy than 'better or worse'. Analytical amp? A1/T1. Warmer amp? S1/D1.

 

It's worth noting this is preliminary; I need to do more extensive A/B comparisons.

I will be interested in your final opinion. I upgraded to an A-1 from the D-1 with an external power supply. Didn't keep the D-1 in my system to compare it to the A-1.

Had a lot more time with both now - it seems I was just more used to the D1 (and hence preferred it) at that early stage.

 

D1 is being returned, I'm keeping the A1. Superb machine! It has more resolution than the D1, with the detail (edges) and clarity being clearer (especially at the high end - cymbals etc). Smoother.

 

I have the MSB Analog and Aurender N10 on their way to me to compare to the A1 now :¬)

That's good news. I listened to an Aurender N10 this morning. Didn't do an A/B test, but the Aurender sounds good as well. I placed Stillpoints under the Lumin this morning as well. I believe it may tighten things up a bit.

I've been pondering Stillpoints. I can't get past how expensive they are for a basic piece of engineering.

Yep, I know that's right. I have some on loan from a friend.

 

Are you able to perform a blind A/B test?nWould be interesting!

Roon support is coming soon! :)

 

Feature request!

 

BIG playback (prev - play/pause - next) on the album art screen.

 

And in fact, bigger buttons on the main screen (even if only the touch area is expanded horizontally to fill the space above/below the icons).

I'm using a Ipad Air and those prev - play/pause - next command buttons seem like a decent size for the screen. Now for a mini, the size could be a problem.

Fine when it's flat on the desk in front of you, or on your lap, but they become more of an issue when the iPad is placed on a stand at arms length for example (not everyone wants to hold an iPad during listening sessions).

 

In a playback application, you can't get more fundamental than playback controls. The hit boxes should be bigger, without a doubt. No need to constrain them to the size of the icon.

 

FWIW, I spent years as a usability (UI/UX) consultant for global banks and broadcasters.
