Selling Lumin U1 - Dedicated Audiophile Streaming Transport - One of the best streamers on the market and comes close to my Innuos Statement in streaming capability. Please note this is a dedicated streamer and does not have a DAC. In very good condition minus a few scratches on the power supply (see pictures) and hairline scratch on transport.

WHY LUMIN U1
After years of requests from existing high-end DAC owners, the LUMIN team have taken the finest components from the flagship S1 model and developed them specifically for digital processing and output.

Always one step ahead
LUMIN is always evolving. The full LUMIN range benefits from our programme of continuous development, allowing you to relax in the knowledge that wherever possible we'll bring you the latest streaming technologies.
In 2017 every LUMIN model gained compatibility with Roon, MQA and Spotify Connect — all absolutely free of charge.
We put a huge amount of effort into sourcing the highest-grade matching components, creating truly balanced circuits, designing cases that shield from interference, etc, etc, but it's only important if the end result effectively communicates the intentions of the artist.
Notably, the common thread in every published and consumer review of all LUMIN products is musicality.
