Lumin X1 latest Review like we have been saying

For many years we have been touting the Lumin products as being one of the best sounding and best implimented paths to creating a fantastic sound in your system.

We sought to be a Lumin dealer after the A1 came out and pretty much got rave reviews as being the best sounding streamer out there, each successive product was better the new T2 is amazing at its price point and challenges $7k streamer/dacs/

The lastest review

sums up Lumins history and even offers a comparison of the X1 vs the Total Dac, and DCS and the Aqua Formula, we actually have tested the upgraded Formula V2 with the Statement and it does sound even bettter.
Summation the best sound the reviewer ever accheived was with the X1.

We sell some of the worlds best dacs, including T+A, Light Harmonic, Aqua Hif, Naim, Mytek, Bricasti, and with the X1 you have to spend $30-50k to better the X1, it is nice to see that other people are agreeing with exactly what we have been saying all along.

If you are looking for the best sound for the money, rock solid reliability, a fantastic feature set, Tidal, Qbouz, Spotify, Apple Airplay to play Youtube or Soundcloud, OTA upgrades, Roon endpoint, full Mqua, DSD and High data rate upsampling, upconversion and playability, solid build quality, built in volume control, the Lumin products are hard to beat.

mayoradamwest, do you seriously think anyone on this forum is unaware that Audiotroy is posting to increase his sales? Of course he is. Everyone knows that, it is completely transparent and hardly needs pointing out. Even Audiotroy admits this and very clearly discloses which products he sells and which he does not. But along the way, he also dispenses some useful information, and as long as you understand that he also has an agenda - and everyone does understand this - there is nothing wrong with this, and his posts are often informative and interesting.

And I should add that I have no connection with Audiotroy and have never dealt with him (I’m in a different country, for a start). But I do agree with him about the Lumin X1. I recently bought a Lumin X1 and it is a stunning dac. It is better IMO than the Chord DAVE/M Scaler which I have also owned, and that alone makes it worth the asking price to me.

Speaking of network players and storage devices, I'm presently living with the Sonore Signature Rendu player and think it's pretty stellar.  It also earned "Gear of the Decade" so that's saying something.  Don't know anything else, has anyone performed a head to head comparison with sonore/small green computer?  And given their new optical to fiber upgrade, I'd think it'll be hard to beat?  I was all about Aurender, but its not Roon capable, so no go for me.  I heard the Innous Statement and maybe it was the setup, but I was NOT impressed as my Sonore sounds better, and we're only dating.  Please enlighten me.

Calling people that disagree with you stupid isn't really occupying the high ground in the argument. Maybe some of us understand sales well enough to be comfortable separating the information from the pitch.

Audiophiles, got to laugh sometimes.

@redphu72 You are interested in the same thing as me. I tied the knot with the Sonore rendu's I think they are great and make me with my tech  background happy to use them.

I imagine you have read the review by Chris Connaker about the Lumin X1 and the Fibre input. He uses a cool looking network switch from

It puzzles me why other DAC manufacturers do not have Fibre Optic inputs. Only one I am aware of is the Lumin X1.

BTW - see this is a conversation by interested parties on the Lumin X1.
