  1. If the lumin app would work or see non lumin hardware, this would solve my issues I am having on my 2nd system that I am using Mcontroll on. Mcontrol when playing tidal masters, only plays 30 seconds of a song but ,the lumin app playing on the same network going to my D1 using the same ipad plays fine with 0 issues. If the lumin app could control other non lumin devices like my PS audio Direct stream JR, that would solve my issues and 1 app instead of 2 to control everything in my house.
  2. Are you sure about this app? It only gets 1.6 out of 5 stars. I am actually looking for a replacement for mconnect.
  3. I still feel like they took our money years ago, never delivered on what we paid for, had enough time or create a completely different product from concept to fully developed and shipped... this really bothers me. They had enough cash to make something completely different then our dac's and put us on the back burner for how many years while blaming the case was the issue??? For me, i feel even more angry.
  4. https://support.lhlabs.com/support/solutions/articles/13000071394 I if anyone wants the link. I take it as they developed headphones costing 1k with our money instead of delivering the DAC;s we supposedly help design and ordered. Kind of a slap in the face in my opinion.

    AXPONA 2020

    I have gone for the past few years. I plan on going again this year.
  6. Just submitted mine along with a copy of the extra shipping bill even though I paid shipping in the campaign. Thanks everyone for helping with this.
  7. jsiegel funny you mention massdrop. I picked up their Rdac and it only took a few months. Granted it shouldn't be on the same level as the VI tube but, how would i know since i haven't heard the Vi tube.
  8. I have read good stuff on it but personally i have never tried it because its not on the Lumin app or mconnect for my ps audio direct stream jr. I will say there is a difference between streaming services in sound. I have tidal and qobuz both. Since the lumin does full mqa, vs high rez from qobuz, to my ear qobuz beats it every time on both my rigs. I would be interested in hearing the difference between Amazon and qobuz.
  9. I use Cullen power cables and star sound spike cones. You are right, the speakers do respond well to small tweaks. Btw, in my other rig, i have audioquest cv8 72V speaker cables and i agree on the battery choice as well. I don't know how to explain how the battery can make a difference but it did. Do you have a sub on them?
  10. Thata one thing i have learned over the years. You cannot go just by measurement, you need to hear it and how it sounds to you. I have purchased things that had amazing measurements but sounded cold thin and not enjoyable.
  11. Yep i also had to pay a shipping charge from Gina. Got into an argument with her as well since i could have sworn sipping charges were already paid on the initial product before it became the vi.
  12. I am just seeing this. I am also one of those folks waiting for a Vi Tube dac. I was following a different thread on Hifi Head and had no idea this one existed.
  13. I have been playing around with Qobuz and Tidal as well. Small rid is:. Lumin D1, Sbooster, Wireworld Eclipse Silver RCA, Kef LS50W with Cullen power cables, Velodyne SPL1200 sub. Tidal MAQ seems to have more bass to me vs the high rez on Qobuz. On Tidal MQA, I feel during complicated music or music that has a lot going on within the song, it seems more meshed together where Qobuz, the instruments have more separation. On some stuff the extra bass on Tidal helps on poor mastered recordings but, with that Velo sub, I don't need the extra help on bass. The MQA versions to me have a bit smoother presentation on top and is usually very pleasant sounding vs Qobuz high rez has a bit more extension on top. Both sound good but, to me, its personal preference on the top end. Tidal seems to have a better selection. They have stuff in the rock department that Qobuz does not. It's a toss up.
  14. Found it! It’s not very descriptive. It’s called stream icon location in appearance. I was looking at actual tidal and MQA settings. By the name of it, I thought it had to do with Lumin Streaming not Tidal.
  15. @wklie where is this within the app. I only see this in the screen shot. I am using the internal dac in the Lumin.
  16. Here is a screen shot. On the one, you can see 2 of the same album. So the only way to know if it’s MQA is to play each one to find out.
  17. Did Lumin take the MQA symbol away on the Tidal portion of the app? It used to show MQA but lately it is not. Did something change or is it something going weird on my iPad?
  18. Usb i am running a w4s recovery. It improved the sound quite a bit. The wifi dac is clean sounding. I like a little bloom so i run a lumin through the rca.
  19. I'm still waiting on the vi tube dac. In another forum, Jerek from LH posts every once in a while and they keep blaming the case of the unit at a high failure rate and thats the reason for the delay. I call BS because they have been saying this for a long long time. They even changed the case and still nothing. I know i have gone with a streamer / dac type unit and if mine ever comes, it will be up for sale. I thought about selling the place marker they sent me just to recoup some of my cash.
  20. Only the gen 1 fire has the optical out. They drop it after that.
