    Lumin P1 Mini

    LUMIN P1 Mini

    P1 MINI has these advantages over T3:

    1. Digital / analog inputs
    2. Femto clock
    3. Linear power supply
    4. Fiber network (SFP)
    5. Included physical remote (primarily for input selection and volume adjustment), which is an optional purchase for other non-P1 Lumin models

    Most importantly - not obvious from the specifications, P1 MINI is meant to be priced competitively to bring our flagship level features to a medium price point, in the same way that we put our latest technology and DAC design essence in D3 at a low price point.

    Just read the landing page describing the P1 Mini's product design, functionality and features.

    Wow!

    Key standouts for me:

    Main features
    Five inputs including USB, HDMI, SPDIF and Analogue
    HDMI with stereo input + AV Passthrough & ARC
    Dual DAC ES9028PRO
    DSD512 & PCM384
    Femto Clock System with precision FPGA distribution
    New internal toroidal linear power supply
    Dual Network with Optical Fibre Network support
    LEEDH Processing lossless volume control

    VERY impressive, Peter. Please extend my Congratulations to Nelson, Angus, and the rest of the team.

    Lumin continues to hit home runs "out of the ballpark". 👌 👊 💪

    I could teach a DFSS course using Lumin as an exemplar of a company that consistently operates at a very high-level of execution with respect to very well understanding customer needs & requirements, developing innovative, very well-designed and specified products, and thereby consistently provide excellent Value* for customers.

    *-where Value=Quality/Price.

    Re: Lumin P1 Mini

    Courtesy of the Polish distributor, yesterday we had the honor and pleasure of hosting the Lumin team (Angus and Li) with the P1 Mini in our listening room. During the listening, we compared the P1 Mini in the role of streamer (with XLR outputs) and only transport with ZenSati sILENzIO USB cable and dCS as DAC.

    Very cool! Nice to see that Angus was there, I met him at AXPONA last year (2023); great guy and truly a gifted audio engineer and designer. Also, it's so cool that the P1 Mini supports optical...in my experience, that is the best way to go to connect to an upstream music server.

    Also, the photos are very good as well; very sharp and on the whole, well-lit.

    Question for you: what is the platform that the P1 Mini is resting on?

    Also, as the P1 Mini is also a DAC and preamplifier, not just a streamer, will you also evaluate it for those applications, as well? I own a P1, and it's one of finest DACs and preamps I've ever used and more importantly, have ever heard. Would love to read a review of the P1 Mini for these functions as well as using it solely as a streamer.

    So, what were the gang's impressions from listening to the P1 Mini? Love to hear what the guys thought.

    Cheers and thanks for posting these.

    THnX. P1 Mini sounds very nice - with good resolution and musicality, but with external DAC from higher level offers much more ... everything ;-)
