Lumin U2 Mini

The U1 Mini is Now The U2 Mini

The First Lumin to feature their all new processing system for 2022. From the sound of it, it is a significant step forward in performance for Lumin 

Product Highlights

  • Transport-only unit
  • All new processor for 2022
  • 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 U2 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 U2 MINI matches the U2 in almost every area - except price.

As well as supporting DSD output over SPDIF (via DoP), LUMIN U2 mini also adds DSD256 digital output via 2 new USB ports.
