LUMIN’s P1 Mini Now Available

Compact and versatile, the P1 Mini streamer/ DAC/ Preamp from LUMIN was unveiled at High End Munich 2024 and is now in stores.

LUMIN's multi-talented P1 Mini promises to deliver an “elite level” of signal processing and versatility to the heart of every two-channel audio playback system.

Building upon the P1, the LUMIN P1 Mini includes much of its bigger sibling's audiophile design and user flexibility - it's just in a more compact case.

Alongside a stereo analogue input, you also get a raft of digital inputs, including USB (up to native DSD512), optical/SPDIF (up to 192/24 with DoP) and HDMI 2.0 (with 4K passthrough). Meanwhile, digital outputs include USB (with native DSD512 support), BNC SPDIF (PCM 44.1kHz–192kHz, 16–24-bit DSD64), and HDMI, supporting PCM 2.0 Audio, 4K Video passthrough and ARC. Additionally, the P1 Mini offers DSD128 and PCM 384kHz up-sampling options for all files.

Naturally, it supports all the popular file formats, including DSD, MQA, WAV, AAC, and ALAC, as well as streaming services such as Quobuz, TIDAL Connect, Spotify Connect, FLAC Lossless Radio, and Apple AirPlay 2. It is also Roon Ready.

The P1 Mini also features a dual-network interface that manages switching between the device's Ethernet and SFP fibre ports, providing complete isolation from network noise.

Fed by a new internal toroidal power supply and governed by a Leedh Processing lossless digital volume control, the P1 Mini's analogue output is a fully balanced layout featuring dual ES9028PRO SABRE DACs supported by dual Femto crystal oscillators and Lumin's proprietary FPGA clock distribution system. This, says LUMIN, delivers the cleanest audiophile signal quality to XLR balanced and RCA unbalanced outputs.

Control over playback and settings, input selection, per-input volume memory and custom input labels is accessed through the LUMIN app or via a sleek new Roon Ready handheld remote, precision-made in Austria from acrylic and zinc. Moreover, the infrared receiver built into the LUMIN P1 Mini is compatible with universal remote controls, phones, and automation systems.

The LUMIN P1 Mini in natural or black anodised aluminium is available now and sells for $7,690 RRP.

    applause awards

    Each time StereoNET reviews a product, it is considered for an Applause Award. Winning one marks it out as a design of great quality and distinction – a special product in its class, on the grounds of either performance, value for money, or usually both.

    Applause Awards are personally issued by StereoNET’s global Editor-in-Chief, David Price – who has over three decades of experience reviewing hi-fi products at the highest level – after consulting with our senior editorial team. They are not automatically given with all reviews, nor can manufacturers purchase them.

    The StereoNET editorial team includes some of the world’s most experienced and respected hi-fi journalists with a vast wealth of knowledge. Some have edited popular English language hi-fi magazines, and others have been senior contributors to famous audio journals stretching back to the late 1970s. And we also employ professional IT and home theatre specialists who work at the cutting edge of today’s technology.

    We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality. Receiving such an award is the prerequisite to becoming eligible for our annual Product of the Year awards, awarded only to the finest designs in their respective categories. Buyers of hi-fi, home cinema, and headphones can be sure that a StereoNET Applause Award winner is worthy of your most serious attention.
