  1. Re: An "insane" upgrade for the U1 mini: FUSE. Which one?

    "Popping" fuses my be more suitable. :rolleyes: That being said, a popped fuse is not necessarily an indication a bad piece of equipment. The protective elements in fuses run near their nominal...
  2. Re: An "insane" upgrade for the U1 mini: FUSE. Which one?

    A couple of points to ponder: If your machine is blowing fuses, then I suggest not installing replacement fuses at $150 USD a pop for troubleshooting purposes as that could get expensive.

    Re: Lumin X1

    I got 11.5 on "day one" and then I believe I got 11.5b on "day two". Both builds have been stable for me as well.

    Regardless of the controversy, Michael Jackson's music is timeless and wonderful especially Eddie Van Halen's guitar licks on "Beat It".

    Re: Lumin X1

    Looks like the X1 got an update and thank you for letting us know your thoughts on this and I think your philosophy on testing is a good one. Back in the day when we simply "patched" software...

    Re: Lumin X1

    Not that I need anything, but I haven't seen a firmware update the X1 in quite a while. To me that can mean only one of three things: Nothing to fix, nothing to improve or development has ceased. ...

    Re: Lumin AMP (Class AB)

    Iscangus, thanks so much for the response and I thank you especially for the the audio magic you have created with the tuning of the Lumin X1's sound!

    Re: Lumin AMP (Class AB)

    Right you are. What I was trying to say was that, with a complimentary pair of transistors operating in class B, there is significant cross over distortion when one xisitor turns off and the other...

    Re: Lumin AMP (Class AB)

    The strict definition of what a class AB amplifier is does not mean that it operates in class A up to a certain point and then transitions into class AB. Class AB means the the two transistors in...

    Lumin App Question - Music Library

    Hi,

    I have searched the help file associated with the Lumin App but couldn't find the answer to my questions. In the area dealing with a specific music library, in my case I have a fanless HTPC...

    Re: Music Server Dreams

    Sad to have to put it in the closet but even the hint of noise would be a show stopper for me. If I had one I'd considering retrofitting an SSD of some sort into it and put it out on display.

    Is Lumin considering coming out with an L1-like device that would complement the X1 in both sound quality as well as styling to match the X1's power supply especially if available in black?

  19. Re: Ground loop hum eliminated.............. the expensive way!

    "Special" indeed. I've got several meter long cables with alligator clips on both ends that I try from time but to no avail. I wish the front three amps had gain controls to I could lower the noise...
  20. Re: Ground loop hum eliminated.............. the expensive way!

    I have a Power Plant 20 in my system and tried every way I can think of to configure things to eliminate the hum and I do have an independent 10 AWG-fed subpanel that is used by the audio system. I...

    Update: The iFi Gemini cable did not work with the X1 connected to my particular DAC even though external power was supplied to the cable via an external power supply. I ended up relying on a...
  22. Re: Ground loop hum eliminated.............. the expensive way!

    Insufficient power is very possible with the FIBBR implementation. The fact that the Monoprice fiber optic cable works fine leads me to suspect that either there is enough power at both ends of the...

    Thanks Peter. I will play around with the QNAP's network interfaces per your suggestion.
  24. Re: Ground loop hum eliminated.............. the expensive way!

    These are, supposedly, 18Gbps. I suspect it was something in how they translate or decode EDID but can't be sure. With the Toshiba, it is so old that it conforms to a really early version of the...
  25. Re: Ground loop hum eliminated.............. the expensive way!

    I had the same response from FIBBR which was NADA! Zippo! Bupkiss! Interestingly, I had problems with FIBBRs cables. Two of my sources worked fine. Two did not "like" the cables. The two that...
