    Lumin products can play music stored in a computer by simply installing the free MinimServer on the computer.
    After reading this I wanted some clarification. I have a USB memory stick attached to my current music player and its software recognizes the files attached. When I read about the U1 mini (and U1) I was assuming you could do the same with it. Insert USB Drive (stick or other form of USB hard drive) into the USB port on back of U1 and the Lumin software would allow the songs to play.

    I'd like to validate if playing music via a USB drive connected directly to the U1 mini will work this way. Thx

    Coaxial cable is supported so you can use it. You can also try to use an AES cable instead, it is usually better.

    By default all music files are streamed in a bit perfect manner, not upsampled unless you configure it to. You can also configure U1 MINI to convert DSD to PCM so you can play DSD files with your PCM-only DAC.
    Thanks for the reply and information. Is appreciated!

    Re: Lumin U1 Mini versus U1/ does LPS make a noticeable difference?

I've heard most music servers at audio shows (not in my system) that's why I went with the Lumin sound and app, it was also within my budget.
    Thx Pete. Sounds (pun intended) llike there is a benefit to the 3rd party power supplies albeit with the understood warranty risk!
