Audiophile Magazine

November 2018

Audiophile Magazine have published their thorough 5-page review of LUMIN X1.

During the review Joël Chevassus states:

It is without doubt the streamer that in my system has developed the most structured sound stage.

The strength of the LUMIN X1 remains this stereophonic image of a hallucinatory precision.

Lumin X1 is a very exceptional digital transport, very precise...the X1 brings you extra resolution

There is this sense of urgency and visceral energy that remains a very addictive character trait of the Lumin X1, and that difference in terms of performance, between the previous S1 and the new flagship, justifies in itself the move upmarket.

November 2018

MONO & STEREO have published their full review of LUMIN X1 and presented it with their 2018 Highly Recommend Product award!

During the review Matej Isak compares LUMIN X1 to a similarly priced computer+DAC setup and states:

Is it better, than a computer?". Oh yes! It is and by no small margin

...the difference is not even funny

fast, resolving and with a transparent dynamic quality, providing the music in an unaltered and forthright way, but nevertheless with the necessary touch of the authentic, real-world warmness

This is another 2018's contender that deserves the highlight. LUMIN X1 has warmed up my inner clocking and lit up the music related inner sensors



August 2018 have published their typically thorough 4-page review of LUMIN X1. This time with Srajan Ebaen investigating.

In the review Srajan Ebaen states:

sophisticated sonic elegance

this is perfectionist hifi done right

now I've seen the light; or heard it as it were. I feel like a proper lumineer - a Luminear...
