Up for sale is a Lumin T1 in excellent condition. During the development of LUMIN A1, Lumin’s focus was to create the absolute best source at any price. No expense was spared in its production. With The LUMIN T1 Network Music Player, their aim was to try and retain all that award-winning musicality while enabling it to be heard by a wider audience.
Targeting higher production quantities has allowed change in manufacturing techniques, resulting in exactly the same audio experience as one of the best reviewed sources of 2013.
LUMIN T1 :
– losing nothing but 5kg
– Shares circuit design with LUMIN A1, including Wolfson WM8741 DAC chips and LUNDAHL LL7401 output transformers
– External dual-toroidal power supply
– Precision-machined aluminium front panel
The Absolute Sound awarded the LUMIN A1 (again, same circuit as T1 w different enclosure) a prestigious Golden Ear Award. In the review, Neil Gader writes:
I haven’t been shy about expressing my reservations about computer audio—mostly it seems like too much work, and IMHO is a totally unsexy way to enjoy music. However, by mostly (not entirely) eliminating the need for a computer, the Lumin A-1 player has proven to be the exception.
Operating wirelessly through its own graphically superb iPad app, the A1 releases the reins of sonic tension and dryness that constrain many digital recordings, adding warmth and weightier presence even to mundane 16-bit/44kHz recordings. I’ve also noted over the months that Lumin makes sure its products are well supported with regular software and firmware updates, and, most recently, Tidal support. It’s so good that it’s the “computer” I’ve come to accept as a high-end source component.
