LUMIN U1 Mini

A new case and internal low noise switching PSU keeps the price low and performance high.

Following the huge success of LUMIN D2, LUMIN decided to investigate the possibility of making the LUMIN transport technology similarly accessible.

The result is a huge specification in a compact package.

Capable of upsampling and downsampling all the way from 44.1kHz to DSD128 and supporting playback of DSD256, LUMIN U1 MINI matches the U1 in almost every area - except price.
