Phileweb take a fascinating in-depth look at LUMIN U1 in combination with 4 different DACs.
- ACCUPHASE DC-37
- LUXMAN D-08u
- CHORD DAVE
- MSB Technology ANALOG DAC
When listening to LUMIN U1 and the Accuphase DC-37 Phileweb stated:
Using LUMIN U1 as a transport, a feeling of energy is applied to the sound. It's reminiscent of the network player "A1", which became the driving force of LUMIN with a rich, bold and powerful sound.
When listening to LUMIN U1 and the Chord Dave Phileweb stated:
When in combination with U1, it further pulls out the performance and force of the recording. Again with U1 it is powerful in tone. Miles Davis, here with the added strength of sound plays with a sense of tension, especially with brass instrument such as sax of John Coltrane the presence increases. It is known as a high-quality album, but I was surprised to hear fresh information on a sound source which was recorded in the late 1950s.
