The Skinny

  • Transport-only unit based on the award-winning LUMIN S1
  • 5 types of digital audio outputs
  • DSD256 11.2MHz
  • PCM 44.1–384kHz 16–32bit
  • Native Tidal & Qobuz support
  • Internal Power Supply
  • USB output

Following the huge success of LUMIN D2, Lumin investigated the possibility of making the LUMIN U1 transport technology similarly accessible. The result is a huge specification in a compact package. 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 price.

As well as supporting DSD output over SPDIF (via DoP), LUMIN U1 also adds DSD256 digital output via 2 new USB ports.

The biggest differences between the U1 and U1 mini are the chassis and the power supply. The U1 sports a CNC milled chassis and outboard linear power supply. The U1 mini comes in a more utilitarian aluminum chassis and has an internal high quality switching power supply.
