    Not at this time. Stand mounts don’t sell as easily. Not big movers as a whole. Most people would just spent a wee bit more and get the 804D4’s IMO. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Yes you may use some non-Lumin music apps that support the iOS / Android physical volume buttons to control volume of the Lumin hardware. However, Lumin native app does not.
