    Some suggestions for the Lumin app

    Hey there !

    I finally bought my first Lumin!!! Lumin U1 Mini. I am very happy about it ! It works like a charm with my existing system.

    I have some suggestions for you:
    1- Improve the display of airplay: when playing a song through airplay, I noticed that the artist, the name of the song and time are not displayed on the front panel. Other devices (Marantz ND8006) can display this info. Any chance to make this happen?
    2- Once I added a network library, Lumin organizes the library and the app shows many tabs: songs, artists, albums, genres... Any chance to make the user choose what tab should be shown and what tab should be hidden (like the composer tab for instance).

    Best.

    Suggestions:
    3- Is there any chance to launch a hardware remote control ? Or has anyone managed to control Lumin devices using a hardware programmable remote control?
    4- Is there any chance to have a notification on the lock screen of iPad/iPhone when music is played on the lumin using the lumin app ? Just like the Sonos app

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    For Lumin the iOS device is treated as a remote. For existing Lumin models, since they lack any sort of infrared or bluetooth receiver, a traditional remote is not likely to be supported.

    Sure. Just like Sonos devices have not any infrared or bluetooth receivers. But Sonos managed to make its devices work with Logitech Harmony for example (Bluesound and Heos devices too work with Logitech). And if infrared and bluetooth are not involved, what can it be? Maybe network control points progammed inside Logitech smart control hub.

    All of my complaints about the Lumin App and it's shortcomings were solved by placing a Roon Nucleus+ in front of my Lumin! Roon brings a wealth of additional features and functionality.

    Re: Some suggestions for the Lumin app

    I sold my Lumin A1 to a friend, he lent me his Oppo Sonica DAC until I got my new streamer Lumin. The Sonica DAC app is so sensillo, organized and easy to use that it gives pleasure. The Lumin app works very well on my ipad, but when I delete the list played there starts the problem (for example it does not recognize my external hard drive) I have to turn off and turn on the Lumin to work.
