THE POWER OF U1 IN A SMALLER PACKAGE
A new case and internal low noise switching PSU keeps the price low and performance high.
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.
Transport unit combines the best performances of Lumin D2 and Lumin U1. The identical processor supports DSD256 and 384khz playback, quad native clock system for precision timing, very low noise shielded switching power supply.
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 the price.
