The Lumin D2 features a modest update to the hugely successful LUMIN D1 by adding the latest (and much faster) processor to allow playback of DSD128 5.6MHz.
The power supply is now internal. Along with a reworking of the board layout, this delivers improved audio quality over the original.
To house all this, Lumin have enlarged the case and made some production refinements. As a bonus, LUMIN D2 is also now available in a black anodised finish as well as the usual LUMIN raw silver.
Of course, it includes all the usual LUMIN features: Fully balanced design including XLR outputs, DSD upsampling, DoP (DSD over PCM) support, Wolfson WM8741 DAC chips, and Lumin’s continuous software development programme that has seen MQA and Roon support added in 2017.
