    Forgive the late reply...I used to run a 520 pre + 501 monos as well. While this was my first step into the world of Soulution it did open up an entirely new musical experience from my previous set-up. I actually prefer the latest 5 series to the...

    Thank you. So volume control (and limiter) functions available in the Lumin app need to be provided in the Roon app if using it as there is no preamp?

    Are the benefits of using the X1 (with Leedh) connected directly to a power amp limited to playback using the Lumin app only or would they also extend to playback using Roon via the X1?

    Hello Mr Mike.
    Sorry if I said something wrong ,since I'm new to this hobbies.

    Today I auditioned 30.2 with NAT SET monoblock. The voice was so full of body but I still miss some bass and I think it kinda rolled off in high. The equipment separation was good only some albums.

    Then I auditioned Diablo120 with their Mojos(different dealers). I'm amazed with the soundstage, image and how clean they produced them(is that mean they bright?), but instantly I miss the Midrange and full body voice feel of Harbeth and NAT.

    Will Diablo produce better midrange when pair with Harbeth??

    I still waiting to try Luxman next

    Thank You Sir.

    Mike, 12mths ago new mk2 (with copper heatsinks + upgrades) was €30000, the one in pics was €16000. I'd happily ask the world distributor if you wish. I have no financial interest at all in this. Met him 12ths ago in Paris, we got chatting. Lovely man, Italian, prefers speaking English to French even though he lives in Paris. Hah!
