Looking from feedback from owners, please. Even better if you have an X1 directly connected.
Me. I use this combo.
I don’t use the Lumin app often, mainly because I dislike the way to feed the playlist. I do like the pure Lumin sound though.
Lumin AMP is a class AB power amp.
Ow, sorry need glasses.
I am also interested in the Lumin amp.
I might get one from my dealer for a home demo next week.
In that case I will compare it with my Aesthetix Atlas Eclipse amp, which is directly connected to the Lumin X1.
I have the Amp together with an X1, linked directly via XLR.
Volume control is Leedh-processing without Preamp, using hardware volume control with a Surface Dial and the extension by @DrCWO.
Speakers are Magnepan 3.7.
Well, what can I say …
I have never enjoyed a system as much as this!
Do you have any specific questions I can answer about the combo?
This sounds very promising especially because it can drive your electrostatic speakers well.
I have ML Montis speakers and was concerned about the Lumin’s capability in that regard.
Did you have a differenet amp with these Magnepan’s before?
My Aesthetix is a hybrid amp and works very well with the X1 without preamp (Leedh-processing) but I was told that the Lumin has higher resolution without any harshness, maybe an even better match with the X1…
The Lumin Amp does not break a sweat no matter what kind of music I play.
I does get noticeably warm after an extended session at high volume, though, but not excessively so.
I have no experience with your amplifier, but I was using Bel Canto Ref 1000 monoblocks before the Lumin. I really liked them too and was actually expecting to not hold on to the Lumin (and save a bundle of money …), but no way:
The Lumin clearly sounds better!
Listening to the system is hard to believe that is is all digital …
Well, I can’t really describe sounds in words, but the effect was really obvious.
Thanks for your feedback, now you made me even more curious about the Lumin amp
Very curious here too. Any chance Lumin AMP owners would like to renew this thread with additional listening impressions and opinions?
I will be happy to, but being only two days into it, I have let it burn-in. I will say that the build is exceptional and looks terrific with X1. And the footprint is modest, which is important to me. I traded in a Pass Labs amp mostly because it was huge.
Thank you Peter. Please update as it burns-in. I would appreciate your input.
