Lumin standalone DAC?

Anybody know if Lumin would consider offering a standalone DAC? I’m a very happy U1 owner who wishes he bought an X1 :wink:

I have 2 D1’s and a D2 and while I would love an X1 I’m not sure what it has to do with a stand alone DAC…there are plenty of DACs you can connect to a U1 or U1mini or the T2, S1 or X1.

Lumin’s forte is in streaming and while many models do have a DAC internally too I somehow don’t see them going down the already saturated DAC only route.

Some dealers (not us) accept trade-in.

Yes, that’s what mine says. Just thought I’d ask if a standalone dac was in Lumin’s future as another upgrade path for standalone streamer e.g. U1 users.

Yes, I’m aware of that. I do quite like the dac I currently have but the thought of a separate dac based on the one inside the X1 might be a nice upgrade option for those who use the U1, U1 mini etc. But I suspect you are right re the already saturated dac market plus as Peter mentioned, some dealers provide a trade-in option.
