    Re: Lumin X1 'V2'

    I'm sure there will be a future upgraded model. The question is when? And can the Lumin X1 be upgraded?

    Re: Lumin X1 'V2'

    Being retired I am on the frugal side of spending, but if Lumin comes out with something better than the X1 then I will buy it. Assuming the improvements are audible and not functional or cosmetic. Then again, it will be difficult to improve on the X1.

    Lumin X1 'V2'

    I don’t think so any time soon.

    Would love to see them branch beyond Sabre for a Statement piece. Maybe ladder DAC? Something new? AKM might not happen anytime soon since the factory burned down. How about a power supply in the same chassis as the main unit, but with two PSU’s - one for the digital section, one for the analog section?

    X1 will remain to be our flagship and not to be superceded anytime soon.

    Re: Lumin X1 'V2'

    Go for it! Very happy with my X1. And it replaces my previous high end server and DAC. And couldn’t be happier with the X1 SQ and the money saved.

    Knowing what you had, and having heard one part of it, that’s quite an endorsement Lumin X1 'V2'

    Re: Lumin X1 'V2'

    Well i just placed my order for a Lumin X1 in black this Wednesday 21st. April , so now the waiting time , , almost like l like a child waiting for the Christmas
    And can't wait to hear how much better it is compared to my T1 that has served me very very well , and still performs very good for the money i paid for it some years back.
    I will use Nordost Frey 2 Power cord and Nordost Heimdall ethernet cable to feed it in the beginning , but when its burned in and i have a good sense on what it does i plan to try out sfp connection also..
    And from start i also plan on giving Qobuz a 1 month trial and see what that can compared to Tidal , we only very recently got Qobuz here in Denmark.

    Thanks a lot , and my dealer told me it usually takes 2 weeks with shipping , and then he said 2-3- weeks ....but now i have waited for almost 2,5 years for this to happen its that long time since i had it on loan ( November 2018 ) , and i read my notes i made when having it here , i was amazed on how much better it was. And at that time i was not using Nordost Frey 2 Powercord for my Accuphase E-470 , and only used the provided cord that comes with the Lumin x1. So am exited

    Congrats Fleming. The X1 is my favorite component in my system! It’s heads and tails over and better than the D1 I had and so DYNAMIC! Enjoy. You’re going to love it.

    Re: Lumin X1 'V2'

    So it finally happened, got LUMIN X1 delivered yesterday afternoon ( Friday ) unpacked it and installed it on my rack. Straight out of the box , waouu it’s amazing. Super black background, so easy to hear what is going on on the stage or room where it was recorded. Intonations in the voice of the performer gives songs a hole new dimension. Bass is simply amazing. Am very happy
    When I figure out how to add a photo I will do so

    Re: Lumin X1 'V2'

    Thank you everyone , and yes its a really good digital player , and will be interesting too see how it developes , with more hours on the unit.....i will for sure try the SFP as its fairly inexpensive , and i am a curious person so i will for sure try it out. So far it is simply great and i really enjoy the " insight " to the recordings it gives me as well as still being musical.
