Lumin is so good that Esoteric integrated the network unit into their Flagship N-01XD $20,000 Network DAC!! This is one of the BEST streaming/network player on the market today. As those already knew me, I’d only sell products that would personally have in my system. Also, Lumin X1 is not an upgrade but has an additional DAC. The U1 is more flexible and one can connect to any dac they like.
Price is $4995 - (that includes new 3.5% $175 PayPal fee, $85 shipping and the $120 for the portable drive - that’s total of $380) So when you deduct that, the asking is approximately $4600). I have a silver and a black unit in Brand New Condition with warranty - retails for $6100
The current generation Lumin line is as good as it gets. I replaced my beloved DCS Network Bridge with Innuos Zenith Mk3 (had slightly more solid tones and more dynamic) The Lumin U1 sounded even better than Innuos Zenith 3! If you are here, you should already know it’s received amazing reviews.
I tried the Lumin U1 with my reference DAC – Esoteric N-01XD, which in itself has a Lumin network streaming unit built in. That in itself should have said it all.
I also tried it with my Active Dutch & Dutch 8c with nothing but a Mogami Gold AES digital cable and the sound was stunning as well – punchy, detailed and precise.
The Lumin has two USB ports for you to use external USB drive or Flash drive directly. It is very easy to setup and use. The Lumin App works great. You can use other apps such as Audirvana, Roon, M Connect etc.
As an appreciation, I will include a FREE BONUS of my High-Resolution Music collection of over 7000 Albums from DSD, 24/96kHz, 24/192KHz, and Uncompressed CD quality, which is worth well over $80k. Yes, not $8k but $80k!!! This collection includes most collectibles/purchase-worthy albums from HDtracks and other high-res music stores so you probably don’t have to buy another album unless it’s new-release. This is an extremely generous offer but please note - the music is NOT what’s for sale in this listing, it’s FREE and it’s simply an incentive and appreciation to the one lucky buyer.
What you are getting:
1. Lumin U1 – Streaming Transport in Brand New Condition - retail $6100
2. Bonus - $80,000 worth of High-res music collection of over 7000 albums on 5TB External HD - drive retail $120
I will cover the Paypal fee and shipping cost within the USA!
