    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.
