    Re: Lumin X1

    after installing the fuses and hearing the improvement they made compared to the stock fuses the designer stated that if/when he started the company back up he would offer the Quantum fuses as an option.will be upgrading to the next version in about 1 month. he is very interested in hearing that upgrade...

    Same holds for me if you are ever in the Ashburn area a stone's throw and directly under the approach path to Dulles Airport. Have a good weekend!

    Re: Lumin X1

    I apologized if this has been asked: Is it a "waste" if I were to purchase a X1 to run through a Lyngdorf MP50? I ask because the Lyngdorph only has digital inputs (SPDIF, USB, AES, etc) and it's impossible to bypass the MP50 DAC. I like the MP50 DAC and love roomperfect, but since part of the X1's excellence is the DAC, would I be better off with an U1 or other high end streamer-only?

    Does the X1 digitial out bypass the X1 DAC?

    While digital output does indeed bypass the DAC stage of X1, so it might seem like you are paying for something you don't need, LUMIN X1 is still the best LUMIN transport.
    We have a graphic showing the differences on this page with an explanation of why we included X1 in the 'Transports' section:
    LUMIN Model Differences

    Obviously, whether the improvements found in X1 are worth the extra money is something only you can decide. Always worth demoing if you can.

    X1 digital output bypasses the X1 DAC.

    For connection to your Lyngdorf, I suggest using a 1.5m AES cable from a Lumin U1 or U1 MINI.

    Re: Lumin X1

    Hi
    I just purchased X1 with remote control, It’s on the way.
    Can I use X1 directly into my power amp which has relatively ( compared to Lumin AMP) low input impedance of 30K ohms.?
    But it has reasonably good gain of 28db.

    Here are the specs of my amp
    KA S180Mk2

    Fully balanced dual mono power amplifier. 2x180W (8 Ohm) in class A

    Channel separated power supplies from a 680 VA toroidal transformer, 80.000 micro Farad filter bank and four stages of stabilisation
    Frequency response DC – 300kHz +0, -3 dB
    Signal to noise ratio better than -112 dB
    Intermodulation distorsion less than 0,03% at rated power into 8 Ohms
    Gain is 28 dB
    Pink noise min RMS Power 180/300W into 8/4 Ohms (not recomended for loads under 3 Ohms)
    Input impedance 30 kilo Ohm

    And my speakers are 8ohm 91db efficiency.

    Re: Lumin X1

    Hi everyone.
    My X1 arrives tomorrow 🤗
    I agonized over choosing a streamer and DAC for quite some time but I feel super confident in my choice.
    Wanted to thank Peter for all his time answering my newbie questions. The whole streaming digital thing is very foreign to me.
    Now I guess the real work begins in deciding how to set it up in my system, what I will use as storage for my own music as well as how I will set it up to stream from Qobuz and Roon
    I have a Luxman D-10X so will use the X1 to stream to it’s dac as well as using the built in one. Choice is good!
    But for now I just want to hook it up and get it burning in.
    I know the questions will follow thick and fast !
    Aloha 🤙

    I know the X1 very well. Curious to hear your opinion on the sonic differences between the Luxman and Lumin.

    Hey Braddah. 🤙🏽

    You made a solid choice. The X1 is a fantastic streamer, probably one of the best and you get the benefits of an external LPS, SFP input and a solid chassis. Im nervous to carry this thing around afraid that I would drop it on my foot and I’m sure it won’t be pretty.
    The lumin team continuously makes a case on delivering a solid product with their firmware upgrades.

    You have some nice toys to play with do please share your thoughts between the two DACs.

    Probably the most solid component in my system. Love it. Exudes quality. Would love to try the matching Lumin amp direct from the X1! Anyone have both who can give a quick review?

    That was super easy to set up. Plugged in, ethernet to router. Discovered by Roon. That is good enough for now.

    Re: Lumin X1

    Hmmmm....setting up the Lumin app with Minimserver is not exactly a walk in the park ;-) But I got it streaming from Radio Paradise yesterday and it blew me away. Could not believe the quality from an internet radio station. Last time I listened to one (years ago) it was steaming MP3 garbage. We all sat around in wonder (and thanks!) at the amazing selection that was to fed us from their "World Mix" station. The best and most diverse curated music selection I have ever experienced. Can't wait to get the X1 fully set up and burned in. Time to sell my physical media?????

    Re: Lumin X1

    Congrats on your X1. It’s a terrific component.

    I’m not sure about setting it up to work with Minimserver. When setup to play music from a Lumin L1 or just streaming from Tidal or Qobuz setup is a breeze. And, best of all, it sounds terrific!

    Peter may be able to comment on setting it up to play with Minimserver.

    Re: Lumin X1

    Hi. Just confirming is the only way to bypass the gain/preamp in the X1 by going digital out? My new-to-me Bakoon amp is designed to have an awesome gain control and would like to allow it to single handily do it’s thing.

    Re: Lumin X1

    There is no active preamp gain in Lumin network streamer series (except M1). You may simply use X1 analog output at volume 100 (or volume control off).

    Re: Lumin X1

    Okay! I guess that settles it then. X1 direct…. Thanks Peter. Wait, not even the P1 has a preamp?

    Edit; yes just re-read my question. No preamp on digital out, would that mean no preamp on the analog section?

    Re: Lumin X1

    That depends on your definition of preamp.

    Functionally, preamp implies switching among different inputs and volume control (that's why P1 is a preamp). Lumin certainly has a volume control, which works for both analog and digital outputs. P1 adds multiple inputs.

    We do not have active gain (other than M1).

    At 6V rms output you should not need active gain. What happens nowadays is that many users suffer from having too much gain in the setup.

    Re: Lumin X1

    Hi Peter,
    Just pulled the trigger on an X1 - install next week. Super excited 😊
    I propose having the Lumin’s XLRs connected to my speakers and the RCAs to my headphone amp.
    I read that having both ‘connected’ would degrade sq so do I take that literally or is it okay if the speakers are switched off when the headphones are playing and the headphone amp is off when the speakers are playing?
    The speakers also take a USB connection so I have choices but I want to ensure that my cabling is ready for the X1.

    Re: Lumin X1

    In theory having both analog XLR and RCA outputs connected for Lumin X1 P1 S1 A1 T1 will degrade SQ, even if one equipment is not powered on. However, you'll have to do a listening test to determine whether is is noticeable or not.

    Hi,
    I would be very happy if I could use my Lumin X1 DAC with a CD transport.
    Will it be availlable one day.
    I have paid for this DAC .It should be a very good one . I would like to use it more .
    Regards
    Pierre

    Re: Lumin X1

    P1 allows a direct connection from CD Transport, but X1 does not have digital audio inputs like P1 does.

    You may rip the CD to files (e.g. FLAC).

    Alternatively, subscribe to a streaming service (Qobuz or Tidal) to avoid the need for ripping CDs.

    Re: Lumin X1

    Digital coaxcial output could be used as Input the same way that USB can serve both ways .
    Then , only a firmware update would be needed .

    Or , it is hardware that is the restriction.

    Anyway , thanks for your answer .

    Re: Lumin X1

    It may have been said before , but is it OK to put the Lumin L1 on top of the Lumin PSU , which would be on top of the Lumin X1 ?
    Or should they be placed aside ; even on different shelves ?

    Just use the free MinimServer. Find a fanless NAS if necessary.

    Anyone know if the X1 is being discontinued/replaced? I seem to be seeing a lot of these on the used market.

    Just updated my P1 to 15.2

    As usual, and per all my experiences with Lumin products, the update went smoothly and effectively.

    I'll be posting more more impressions it's own thread soon, but I'll digress for a moment here and say I think the P1 is one of the finest preamplifiers I've ever heard...from anyone. It has a way of rendering tonal, textural and timbral quality, subtleties and nuances that is matched by few others in my experience, and is fully compelling.

    Re: Lumin X1

    Upgrade went smooth on the X1, never a problem. btw, just want to say using Lumin’s app sounds better to my ears than streaming through Roon.

    Yes, that is correct. Same as on the P1. Robert Harley observed this also in his review of the P1 in TAS.
