Lumin's Flagship Streamer

The Flagship Lumin S1 Network Music Streamer is capable of DSD128 5.6Mhz 1-bit playback. Milled from a solid billet of aluminum for resonance and RFI rejection. It utilising 4 ESS SABRE32 Reference DAC chips to deliver a total of 16 DACs per channel in parallel. Featuring a new clocking system and an enhanced, dual toroidal external power supply. While LUMIN S1 brings greater resolution and a more dynamic sound, no stone has been left unturned to ensure that the characteristic LUMIN musicality is delivered. This has involved tuning every part of the system to complement these new DAC chips, including revising the clocking system and enhancing the external dual-toroidal power supply.

Music Storage options

  1. You can play back your music files from a NAS on your home network with Minimserver installed.
  2. You can use Lumin's 2 terabyte L1 server/external hard disk. This connects directly to the Lumin and offers some playback options not available through NAS or (non-Lumin) external hard disk playback.
  3. Tweek Geek offers a pre configured 1 terabyte Samsung solid state external drive that connects directly to the Lumin through an available USB port. Solid state drives are fast, and have no moving internal parts, thereby eliminating the noise and chatter associated with spinning hard disks.

Difference between the A1 and Lumin S1

The S1 shares the same solid aluminium chassis as the current A1 but offers higher levels of performance by utilizing 4 x ESS Sabre 9018 eight-channel DAC chips (two per channel). This arrangement delivers 16 paralleled DACs per side as compared to the single Wolfson WM8741 DAC per channel of the A1. This modern Sabre multiple Delta Sigma or MDS architecture confers on Lumïn’s new flagship comparable D/A conversion to the Accuphase DC-901. MDS is a technique for reducing conversion errors to improve the measurable performance of D/A converters. The result is higher dynamic range, better linearity, lower harmonic distortion plus further improvements in other areas.

The Lumin App

All Functionality of the Lumin S1 is handled through the intuitiv interface of the Lumin App. The Lumin App is designed to be intuitive to use without any training. Most users just download the app and start playing.

"The Lumin iPad application is very polished. I needed no instructions to get up and running and to understand 99% of the options. " - Computer Audiophile
