    Earlier I tested volume controlled USB output to be working my test setup, and another user also confirmed it to be working for him. So that's very odd. You are not playing MQA music, are you?

    In the Lumin app About function of U1 MINI, you can tap and hold the Factory Reset. Please try it. On boot up, enable volume control again, and check the volume function. Are you using the USB Output of U1 MINI, without any other output...

    If you're using Lumin A1 (or T1 or S1 or X1) connecting both XLR and RCA simultaneously will degrade the sound quality.

    X1 will remain to be our flagship for a long time. I guess it would be like this for a longer time than the period when S1 was our flagship. We may already have the best ES9038PRO design in the market, since there are X1 customers who also have...

    Digital audio path optimization does not translate well into descriptive words for SQ. Let me know what you hear. (Originally I was going to report what some beta testers told me, but on second thought that would create expectation bias.)

    Yes. You can turn down the Lumin volume, then set the preamp to unity gain position. If it's not clear what position is unity gain, see if you can determine that experimentally (with care).

    Thanks for the report. From the Lumin firmware point of view, we do not even distinguish what music is being played, let alone a particular Spotify playlist. So that is not likely to be a problem caused by firmware code written by us.
