    Lumin X1 is here!!!

    Our LUMIN X1 arrived yesterday! After a bit of warm-up today, we finally had a listen. In one word..."WOW!" The LUMIN team delivered as promised...Congrats and many thanks! Absolutely reference class digital.

    If anyone is interested to hear the new X1 in the Chicago area, we would be happy to arrange a demo.

    Cheers!

    The black brushed chassis looks really good.

    Since I plan on using my Lumin X1 with Audio Research, I went with silver. Mine is arriving in a few days. I already bought all the necessary gizmo’s for using the optical.

    The black looks nice.

    Lumin X1 is here!!!

    I’ve checked out various pictures of both finishes across the model range (promotional pictures as well as user pictures) and either choice is a winner in my mind. Matching to supplemental system gear is the right choice.

    @Archon, what type of differences are you hearing and listening notes come to you so far? Especially compared to the S1. Would love to know your thoughts!

    Re: Lumin X1 is here!!!

    Hi Jerbil - My initial take is the X1 sounds more powerful (fuller/warmer with more dynamics) than the S1 at the same measured volume. Don't get me wrong I still think the S1 sounds wonderful, but I felt the use of a great pre-amp made my system better. However, with the X1 I am starting to think that no pre-amp is required.

    We also have the "Optical Gizmos"...just want to get a few more hours on the unit before changing things...but will keep everyone in the loop with our findings.

    More later...
