    Yes this does help greatly. I want to bypass my amps pre-amp, I think I can do this on the dedicated input but they are RCA in.

    Ok. Maybe I’m over thinking this…what internet connect style are you using between X1 and your amp? Thx Edit: interconnect (stupid auto correct)

    Thanks for this feedback. I tell yah, the Lumin Amp sounds like the perfect match too. I will have to try bypassing my diablo preamp. How are you outputting from your X1? Are you using a XLR to RCA or RCA to RCA?

    Hi Mark, How are you going from your Lumin to Diablo? XLR to XLR, or bypassing the Diablo pre and going into input 3 (AV bypass)?

    Low325 replied to a thread Lumin X1 in Lumin
    Really dumb question….the X1 and other Lumin DAC/Streamers have both digital and analog output. When you burn in the device, are you burning in both sections? Or do you have to do one at a time…total of like 1000 hours?? Yikes! The X1 can only...

    That’s a good question. Keeping it in the family has some pros. But also mixing things up has unforeseen and unexpected/positive results too. I do really appreciate the engineering that Gryphon took to implement their internal DACs. They’re not...

    So, I have the Diablo 120 w/optional DAC. It is a glorious DAC, imo. The sound along with the amp, is big, analogue-ish sounding and still very 3D with the sound stage outside of my mains. FWIW, i used to judge mobile sq audio systems and was a...

    Just so I understand. In order to improve the sound of Roon, you install and configure HQP on another computer. Then, in HQP, you set it to upsample everything, even PCM red book to DSD 256/512 using a ASDM7EC modulator with a poly-sinc-ext2...
