    Thanks…. I will check out some YouTube videos to get an education and make my decision. Many years ago I made some vinyl CD copies with my Pioneer PDR-609 recorder. The results were really good. In fact I still have it. I could only imagine with...

    Low325 replied to a thread Lumin, Leedh’ing the way in Lumin
    Thanks for this feedback. I tell yah, the Lumin Amp sounds like the perfect match too. I will have to try bypassing my diablo preamp. How are you outputting from your X1? Are you using a XLR to RCA or RCA to RCA?

    Hi Mark, How are you going from your Lumin to Diablo? XLR to XLR, or bypassing the Diablo pre and going into input 3 (AV bypass)?

    Hi , i just tried using the leedh from Lumin X1 , with my Accuphase E-470 as it is possible to only use its amp section. I wasn't prepared on that big difference in sound it made , everything became more clear as well as much better differentiated...

    There are no dumb questions, IMHO, but there may be wise guys out there that try and make a person feel that their question is dumb. As for me, I started enjoying my X1 right out of the box and was not really interested in trying to do an initial...

    Low325 replied to a thread Lumin X1 in Lumin
    Really dumb question….the X1 and other Lumin DAC/Streamers have both digital and analog output. When you burn in the device, are you burning in both sections? Or do you have to do one at a time…total of like 1000 hours?? Yikes! The X1 can only...

    Interesting discussions using the Lumin X1 directly into an integrated bypassing the preamp. Right now, I have my X1 going balanced out to my Diablo balanced in (XLR). So in essence (I swear a Gryphon Essence is calling my name, FML), still using...

    Their customer service is pretty good -- meaning they should be quite willing to help with repair or replacement. Although it sounds like maybe you tried to do something not intended?? I would talk to an Ansuz dealer.

    That is a useful feature. My Pass preamp has that feature, and I use it. The left speaker is about 3 feet from a wall, but the right speaker is next to an open area. So I turn the right volume up a little.
