Lumin, renowned for its streaming devices, has unveiled a versatile network player Lumin P1. In addition to the capabilities of a streamer, DAC and preamplifier, the new product also passes 4K over HDMI 2.0, and even with ARC support. In this mode, Lumin P1 can be considered a stereo receiver (albeit without an FM receiver on board).
The circuitry of the novelty, based on the ES9028PRO SABER DAC chipset, follows the principles of “dual mono”, and the clock signal is generated by a femtosecond clock generator based on FPGA. Signal resolutions can reach DSD512 and PCM384.
The cherry on top is Roon Ready certification. The digital and analogue parts are powered separately. The Lumin P1 features a 32-bit Leedh volume processor, and the XLR outputs are transformer-coupled on Lundahl LL7401 components.
The novelty is equipped with a new tactile IR remote control made of acrylic and zinc, and by the set of signals the system is compatible with universal remote controls, telephones and automation systems.
In the UK, the Lumin P1 network player will cost £8,495.
