    LUMIN Firmware 12 - Multi-room

    We have released LUMIN Firmware 12 to add the multi-room feature, which allows loosely synchronized playback of music among several LUMIN or Songcast-compatible players (e.g. Linn).

    - Any LUMIN model can be a 'Receiver'
    - LUMIN X1 / T2 / D2 / U1 / U1 MINI / M1 can all be 'Senders' (the reason other models cannot be a sender was that they do not possess enough processing power)

    An interesting technical aspect of our implementation is that a LUMIN sender model can perform MQA Core decoding ("first unfold") or DSD to PCM transcoding before sending to Linn players via Songcast protocol. This is noteworthy because Linn does not support MQA, and old Linn players did not support DSD.

    Release notes and usage instructions on our web page should be up shortly.

    A convenience switching feature is also added to LUMIN M1 for the RCA input. You may now use the LUMIN iOS app or Linn Kazoo app to switch its input to RCA. It could also be done by standby / wakeup or re-plugging in the RCA input module.

    This marks 7 years of firmware upgrade since the original LUMIN (December 2012).

    Re: LUMIN Firmware 12 - Multi-room

    What does this mean? I have an X1 in my stereo, and an S1 in my HT/spare stereo. Does this mean a song playing on the X1 will also play on the S1? If so then I guess that means both units have to be on the network. I use my Ethernet connection on the X1 to attach my hard drive with all the music.

    When the app said Firmware 12 was available but there were no release notes on your web page, I came here. Very cool you posted what this release was about! Thanks for being so involved with the community on all the different forums. Here’s to another 7 years, and more.

    Yes, you can send music from X1 to S1 on the same network for simultaneous playback, if both units have the Multi-Room feature turned on.

    Re: LUMIN Firmware 12 - Multi-room

    Lumin t2 has more power than s1?
    Lumin u1 mini has more power than s1?
    Do you still sell s1?
    What is the difference in price between t2 and s1? Between u1 mini and s1?
    Is the sentence «*I don’t want to be a s1 owner for all the whisky in Ireland*» true enough to make it like an advertisement banner?

    Thanks Peter for this briliant answer. But S1 still being sold at 11.5k€ (I thought I would buy it at one point of time). Maybe you will feel honest saying to future customers that this device has less powerful processing abilities than U1Mini sold at 2k€

    Can you please answer my question about DNS? It is a critical/urgent one

    Re: LUMIN Firmware 12 - Multi-room

    I have no problem saying that. Beginning from U1 I already told members here that U1 has a more powerful processor, enabling DSD128 upsampling which previous models could not. Function or processing power do not imply SQ - audiophiles intimately know this, otherwise everybody can just buy the most powerful general purpose PC and use a USB DAC and be done with it.

    I'll see what our decision makers think about configurable DNS, but generally we try our best to avoid putting in technical options.
