    Re: Lumin T2

    Purchased the T2 today to try in place of my trusty PS Audio Directstream Junior. The DSJ was and is fantastic as a DAC and streaming option. I really had no complaints with it in my system but as always, the allure of wondering if the Lumin could be a better fit got to me. First impression was that the T2 is built like a tank. It isn't that heavy but boy is it sleek, minimalist and compact. Right out of the box, there seems to be a bit more air compared to my Snowmass fitted DSJ. It seems like a natural at what it does. No worse than the DSJ even though this unit is only 2 hours old.

    Freesole...curious to hear how you like the T2 now that you have had it in your system for a few days? Also I am very curious to hear from anyone who has compared the T2 to the T1 (maybe a Lumin dealer). I have a T1 and might be interested in upgrading but would like to know more before I move in that direction.

    Review by High Fidelity, now with English translation:

    http://www.highfidelity.pl/@main-893&lang=en

    The T2 is one of the best devices of this kind. It is resolving, delivers nice colors and beautiful space. Purity of the sound translates into a great sound stage and excellent band's extremes

    “The T2 is one of the best devices of this kind. It is resolving, delivers nice colors and beautiful space. Purity of the sound translates into a great sound stage and excellent band's extremes, which is something completely different from classical "file-based" sound. This is a big step forward compared to the T1 version”

    All true! An incredible machine at $4500 (introductory price).
