Lumin U1

Recommended Posts

Hello

My hifi journey has turned to different CAPS , abnd then went for the Auralic Aries

Recently I bought the Melco N1A , which runs very very well

I was wondering about the interest of a Lumin U1 , as a renderer to serve my DAC instead of the Auralic Aries .. is it worth ?

Other alternatives could include an Aurender N100H or the N10

 

The Lumin U1 is rarely reviewed , so I will need your user or listener experience

Cheers

Hello

No one seems to be having the U1 ..

I phoned a local dealer , and he was surprised about the U1 , he didn't know about it

Hello

 

FWIW, as I'm looking to replace my mac mini/audirvana, i've been looking at the U1 as one possible server replacement. I had the chance to play with one for a couple of days, thought it sounded great through SPdif but the app lacked some features that I want. I've been intrigued by Roon, so I've also been looking at the Sonic Transport / MicroRendu, a much less expensive option but it would lock me into Roon. A 3rd option I'm considering is the Music Vault, which I think is a souped up CAPs that would have both Roon and JRiver as app options. Don't yet know which way I'm going to go. Interestingly the U1, or Lumin for that matter, doesn't seem to get much press, so its hard to get much info about it.

I have heard several Lumin streamers. But not the U1. They are really wonderful. I still sometimes regret that I didn't buy a second hand lumin instead of the Ariel LE and Schiit DAC. Many audiophiles me among them want many different boxes, streamer, dac, seperate powersupplies, all kind of voodoo boxes between streamer and DAC.

 

But a one box solution can sound really good and you do not have to worry about USB optimizers and crap like that.

 

I'm really stupid since I'm still thinking about something like a Hydra Z, Mutec MC3+ usb, Jact USB Isolator, USB regen etc etc Already have a Schiit Wyrd. A one box solution would have saved me from the urge of buying those items.
