  1. Slow meaning it takes several seconds to start playback, or incorrect playback with the sound distorted in way that causes female voice to sound like male?
  2. We tried two different iPads two different iOS and we did not experience what you show in the video.
  3. "top of music library" - do you mean top of (left hand side tablet) playlist, or the (right hand side tablet) album view? They did not reset to top in my test, so I'm not sure I got your meaning. In any case, try both "Follow Now Playing" setting to see if it works better for you.
  4. If you mean Tidal playback begins slower, please try it only at non-peak hours, switch to Qobuz or Spotify or try it with another internet service provider - it's not usually an issue of Mbps regardless of how high that value is marketed to you. Real download speed from Tidal server is irrelevant to that and is dependent on region and ISP.
  5. We can neither reproduce this on an iPad Pro iOS 13.3 nor iPad Air iOS 11.4.1. If you were looking at Tidal search results, they do expire after some time.
  6. This is not true. Raw MQA or MQA Core (first unfold) decoded to 88.2/96kHz can be sent over AES / SPDIF / toslink as well if your product / configuration support that. However, it is true that many MQA DAC only supports MQA decoding via USB.
  7. Those are newer products with newer CPU. However, CPU is a different thing from sound quality.
  8. DSD64 can be encapsulated in PCM 176.4kHz. DSD128 can be encapsulated in PCM 352.8kHz. DSD256 can be encapsulated in PCM 705.6kHz - relatively few DAC support DSD256 DoP such as Chord.
  9. Other than very rare exceptions, most USB DSD DAC supports DoP. However, even for those DoP DAC, only some of them support DoP over SPDIF but all of them should support DoP over USB. DoP was designed for USB transmission in the first place.
  10. @Philippe Bill Please let me know the Lumin player hardware model you're using, and the library you're using - MinimServer, brand of NAS, or USB drive, etc. Just before it crashes, were you tapping a track on the left hand side playlist, or the right hand side for adding to playlist? Was it a single tap or double tap? Please try turning off iCloud setting for Lumin app. If it still crashes, please find the crash log from Settings - Privacy - Analytics - Analytics Data and e-mail to us.
  11. Only some DAC support DoP64 over AES / SPDIF / toslink, e.g. recent Esoteric and Mytek. Many do not.
  12. LUMIN Multi-Room instructions: http://www.luminmusic.com/support-multi-room.html
  13. We have released LUMIN Firmware 12 to add the multi-room feature, which allows loosely synchronized playback of music among several LUMIN or Songcast-compatible players (e.g. Linn). - Any LUMIN model can be a 'Receiver' - LUMIN X1 / T2 / D2 / U1 / U1 MINI / M1 can all be 'Senders' An interesting technical aspect of our implementation is that a LUMIN sender model can perform MQA Core decoding ("first unfold") or DSD to PCM transcoding before sending to Linn players via Songcast protocol. This is noteworthy because Linn does not support MQA, and old Linn players did not support DSD. Release notes and usage instructions on our web page should be up shortly. A convenience switching feature is also added to LUMIN M1 for the RCA input. You may now use the LUMIN iOS app or Linn Kazoo app to switch its input to RCA. It could also be done by standby / wakeup or re-plugging in the RCA input module. This marks 7 years of firmware upgrade since the original LUMIN (December 2012).
  14. @Ropet In order to isolate the problem, please connect your DAC to a computer via USB and SPDIF and test the playback there (with appropriate drivers, configuration and software), bypassing the Lumin. If you have a NAS, I think it may also be used for a similar test.
