    Well, like a programmed machine here I am ��
    HIFI Tuning (German brand) is inside the Lumin. As you can imagine, I can not “switch” from original to tuning, so what I’m writing is always after a while... playing from “A” to “B”.
    I confess that I feel (it was listen) more “relaxed” with the HFT and that’s because more “space” in front of me (horizontal) and micro-details are “more”.
    When I came “back” I was listening to (not feeling) a “warmer” but “closer” scene.
    You have to know that the DAC its the same and cables are the same too; I am using a QNAP NAS so, I think “there” should be another improvement with a “Melco” I guess but now, anyway, the physical CD is behind.
    Do not ask me why or how is it possible because it’s OFF TOPIC ��

    Thank you for reading and goodbye!

    If I may, one last warning: try another brand.

    Ain't gonna happened here, thanks for your advice!
    There are many reasons, let me write just a couple:

    a) these "improvements" like you can read from my last post are... in a circle where listening and (moment) feelings are closer, even so I am sure about them. So, better for me, for my sys, to look for other upgrade like... changing NAS and search a "silentSSD-Melco" for example.
    b) in EU, the HIFI Tuning its something about "the only one fuse Company" that have in stock a fuse compatible with Lumin U1 mini".
    c) Why?


    Have a good time!

    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.

    Also, it is inadvisable to wrap a failed fuse in aluminum foil and reinstall it to see if you can get the device to work. (Been there. Done that.)

    "Popping" fuses my be more suitable. 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 current value can, over time, begin a slow "walk" to failure.

    So it would be a 2A fast blow in my U1...assuming it's like most Lumins? And a dumber question, where is that fuse in my U1?

    Yes. Look below the IEC socket of the U1 power supply.
