Lumin X1 Reference Network Player

Streaming's New Cutting Edge

Experience the latest advancements in streaming technology with this new offering. A powerful processor enables native DSD512 and PCM768 playback, ensuring exceptional audio performance. The dual mono design implemented throughout the system maximizes channel separation, delivering immersive and detailed sound.

Dual ES9038Pro SABRE DACs, renowned for their high performance, offer an impressive 140dB dynamic range, resulting in incredibly clear and accurate audio reproduction. The Femto Clock System with precision FPGA distribution further enhances timing accuracy for optimal audio quality.

To minimize distortion and maintain signal integrity, a new output buffer design and a dual mono dual-stage linear regulator have been implemented. This ensures pristine audio delivery and minimal interference.

The optical network feature provides complete isolation from network digital noise, guaranteeing a clean and uninterrupted streaming experience. Additionally, the USB Digital Audio Output supports Native DSD512, enabling high-resolution audio playback.

The new power supply is a testament to its commitment to quality. With a solid billet CNC casing design and separate digital and analogue circuitry, it ensures optimal performance and minimizes interference. The low-noise linear regulator further enhances power stability, resulting in exceptional audio fidelity. The upgraded 9-pin output connector offers a secure and reliable connection.

For existing S1 / A1 / T1 customers, this new offering is available as an upgrade, allowing you to take advantage of the latest advancements in streaming technology.

Experience the future of streaming with this cutting-edge solution, delivering unparalleled audio performance and an immersive listening experience.
