    Re: Lumin U1

    Thanks for quick update, @wklie! I totally agree with you, Devialet should be ok with DSD regardless of with connection. But; when reading the specs of 250 Pro Expert on Devialet's own site, the following comes up:
    SUPPORTED FORMATS

    Up to 32bits / 192kHz PCM (USB)
    Up to 24bits / 192kHz PCM (AIR®, UPnP, AES/EBU, Coaxial)
    Up to 24bits / 96kHz PCM (Optical)
    Up to 1bit / 3.072000MHz DSD64 (USB, Coaxial)

    That was the main reason for my questions

    These are almost contradictory, but I'd believe the text. Please test AES and let me know.

    Re: Lumin U1

    Today, I got confirmation from Devialet support. You're absolutely right, of course, @wklie "Our AES/EBU input indeed supports DoP streams".

    I just have to buy an AES cable and test Let you know how it goes.

    @wklie,
    My Lumin U1 is now connected to my Devialet with a Weiss AES/EBU cable, playing DSD. The Devialet shows DSD64 in its display. Soundquality seems to be great.

    Great! Please burn in the Lumin with repeat playback of playlist 7x24. Then you can compare AES against USB. When using AES or other SPDIF outputs, USB must be disconnected first.

    Re: Lumin U1

    I have now teste back and forward, changing between Weiss AES/Heimdall2 USB/Synergistic Research Galileo USB, always disconnecting the USB when listening with AES. The AES always sounds better than USB in my setup, with more transparency, dynamic and more defined bass.

    Thanks for all your help regarding this matter, @wklie!

    Re: Lumin U1

    I think to improve the performance of Lumin U1 and replace the power supply. My choice of Paul Hynes SR5 or Clones Audio Power Station Deluxe. Does anyone have any comparison experience or any thoughts?

    Please consider the official X1 power supply upgrade for U1.

    If you wish to have someone custom make a LPS for you, please note the special DC connector.

    Re: Lumin U1

    Yes, I know it's a good LPSU, but its price matches the SR7. And I couldn't find reviews comparing to Clones and Paul Hynes.
