LUMIN P1 is on the cover of the September issue of The Absolute Sound Magazine and they presented it with their coveted Golden Ear award.
Labelling P1, "Master of all trades" Robert Harley goes on to say:
I’ve never had an easier experience setting up a music server.
Leedh [volume control] is sonically “lossless,” as the company claims. This is, to say the least, a significant achievement.
P1 is an absolutely wonderful sounding and highly musical server. Even under the microscope of reference-level CH Precision electronics, Wilson Chronosonic XVX loudspeakers, and top-of-the-line cables and power conditioning, the P1 proved itself where it matters—communicating the music.
P1 had the warmth, richness of tone color, freedom from grain, and three-dimensionality of a much more expensive product.
Some audio components have a kind of ineffable magic that transcends “good sound” and enters the realm of communicating the music in a more powerful and involving way.... the P1 possesses this quality, delivering an experience that is musically authentic and immersive.
