    Mike replied to a thread Esoteric XD Series in Esoteric 
    I had the K-01x, and older K-05 and a Grandioso K1. I always felt the older esoteric had “bite” and was over sibilant, and very detailed. I was then at one of the shows last year and walked into the Esoteric room. I could tell right away...

    This is setup dependent. Some people prefer AES, some people prefer USB. Note that only USB supports DSD128 and above.

    After warm up, I noticed soundstage wide to be one of the strong points. As good as anything I’ve tried. As the evening went on, soundstage depth, especially during a couple of live recordings, was superb. Definitely great layering as well. I...

    Although I have not received report of using Lumin with Mutec MC-3+USB, the U1 (MINI) firmware should recognize MC-3+USB and should be native DSD256 compatible.

    This is possible via Roon, when you use a USB DAC or our Roon Ready product line.

    But at $14K this is a “sweet spot” for those wanting a world class spinner. I would have gone for the K-01XD, but worried that cracking that $20K barrier (it’s $22K) would be too much for some. The $14K is more achievable and still delivers...

    Ok, 6 discs in now. Color me VERY impressed. “Natural” is the word for this new XD series. Gone is the bite, digital sound of old Esoteric. It doesn’t have the “analogness” (if that’s a word) of Luxman, but what it has is dynamics, punch,...

    Lumin supports TuneIn, but it seems that Radio Paradise is not available as flac via TuneIn. In TuneIn app, flac is not presented as an available choice in stream quality.

    Lumin does not support multichannel DSD. If you use Roon, Roon can downmix the multichannel to stereo for Lumin to play them.
