    Power off the Lumin

    There is an auto off function in the Lumin app, just want to see how many Lumin user power off their Lumin by pressing the main switch or just leave it as auto off? Some people suggest just leave the auto off on all time instead of turning on and off the power switch since the Lumin can run all day long without any issue.

    Re: Power off the Lumin

    I use the power off function using the Lumin app, for my T2.

    Re: Power off the Lumin

    I use the auto off on my A1.
    By doing so it just goes to sleep (minimum power consumption) without disruption of the main power.
    This keeps the circuitry partially active, avoiding warm up and on/off cycles. Both of which are negatives with electronic equipment.

    Don't know if your A1 is the same as my T2 but I think my T2 uses 15 watts in standby which isn't great.

    I never turn off my S1 (formerly) and X1 (current). They do go into the stand by mode.

    As a network player it cannot do low power standby without sacrificing network discovery and wakeup, as in OpenHome protocol used by Lumin app and required by Roon Ready certification.

    Any idea about how much it consumes when NOT in standby mode?

    I've not really used the standby mode until now, but if it works smooth then why not...

    Typically 20W. A little higher if you connect a USB drive.

    Re: Power off the Lumin

    Guys. Thanks so much for all your input. I will leave it on auto off mode instead of switch the power button on and off all the time.

    Btw, does anyone of you replace the stock power cord to any branded power cord? Any obvious improvement on the musical perspective?

    Re: Power off the Lumin

    @Wklie: So if I leave my T2 go into standby on its own, it will use the same power (15watts I think) if I turned the T2 off using the app?
    Is the same thing happening when using the app and letting my T2 go into standby on its own: whichever is used my T2 goes into standby?

    Hello, yes, for my ears there is a difference, for my Lumin A1 I used the Purist Audio Vesta, now for the X1 I use Shunyata Venom NR V10. Both are excellent cables, but in this case I prefer the Shunyata.

    I got the D2 but using the stock cable only. What are the characteristics for Shunyata? I am more prefer to warmth sound perspective. More musical feeling than emphasis on analytical. Thanks

    Yes! Shunyata power products significantly lower the noise floor by removing the effects of contaminated power, resulting in subtle improvements in the SQ. Their power cables are designed to do this, but the use of the Triton and Typhon QR greatly adds to the process. I am not referring to audible noise, but the degrading result of RF generated within and outside of your system. As many other Shunyata users will attest, this is major.

    @Showroom Dummies it's the same no matter the Lumin goes into idle sleep by its own or it is manually triggered.

    With Shunyata power cables improves the dynamics a little, and the most noticeable is the black background, you hear the details better.

    Re: Power off the Lumin

    Looks like many of you use Shunyata power cord for your Lumin. I gotta go try it out, may I know which line in Shunyata is more an entry to mid level? I would like to start off as not a very expensive one on the D2 first.

    Same here. I think my D1 since I bought from Mike when it came out has only been totally off when we either had to excavate for a Hurricane or a major power outage. Still running good to this day.

    Re: Power off the Lumin

    It depends on the kind of sound that you like..

    In my A1 I have tested Power Cables from Wireworld and Purist and to my ears they are not good cause the bass "dissapear " with all them and I like the bass feeling to be presenta all the time.

    I dont want to say that they are no good cables.. I just say that for my ears when I book them the bass dissapear

    Foreros who have more experience with Shunyata cables can advise it, but in my opinion the Venom NR V10 or V12 can be very useful (if I'm not mistaken there is a difference of 50 UD $) I know there are cheaper models, but I don't have much knowledge. Another thing that I love about this wonderful brand is that you send an email to Shunyata and the gentlemen tell you what would be good for your team (be it amp cables or sources), you can't go wrong with Shunyata.

    I use the Shunyata Sigma. Do think that the Alpha and Delta are terrific for less money. And, if the budget is very limited, try the latest Venom. Any of these cables will be superior to the basic factory power cable.

    I have been leaving the Lumin for auto sleep for a week already. I can feel the chassis a little warm only. Like some of you mentioned, I can just go ahead to listen without warming up the machine which is good.
