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.

Transport-only unit combines the best of LUMIN U1 and LUMIN D2

  • Identical processor supports DSD256 and 384khz playback
  • Quad native clock system for precision timing
  • Low noise shielded switching power supply
  • 5 types of digital audio output including USB
  • MQA Decoding
  • Resamping to every supported format up to DSD128
  • Supports DoP (DSD over PCM) for Optical, Coaxial RCA, Coaxial BNC & AES/EUB SPDIF

All the usual LUMIN refinements

  • From MQA to DSD, FLAC to WAV, LUMIN can play all the high-resolution formats you could ever want
  • Native support for TIDAL, Qobuz, Spotify and AirPlay, giving you access to tens of millions of songs
  • The unique and intuitive LUMIN App described as "the most convenient interface in existence" by Tinman
  • LUMIN programme of continuous development that has seen Roon, MQA, and Spotify support added in 2017 alone.
