Lumin P1 Networked Player/ Preamp Lands in UK
The multi-talented P1 player/ preamp from Lumin has landed in the UK and is ready to order.
Lumin's P1 dual DAC-equipped networked audio player and preamplifier was announced in October and is now available in the UK through Sound Design Distribution's retail partners.
The P1 is said to be precision-engineered to deliver an elite level of signal processing and versatility, and we're told it is Lumin's most versatile design to date.
Under the hood of Lumin's P1, you will find a dual-mono design from input to output. Hardware features dual Femto re-clocking oscillators, dual ES9028PRO SABRE DACs, 32-bit precision volume control with LEEDH processing and a fully-balanced analogue output stage as used by the flagship Lumin X1. Additionally, power comes by way of a new dual-toroidal linear power supply.
Adding to the P1's versatility is nine digital/analogue inputs with the XMOS USB input supporting native DSD512 and PCM384, while TOSLINK, SPDIF (RCA) and AES inputs support up to 192kHz 24bit data. In addition, three HDMI 2.0 inputs support 2.0 PCM audio decoding and the passthrough of HDR, Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos, DTS via an ARC compatible HDMI output. Meanwhile, balanced XLR and co-axial RCA input/outputs handle pure analogue signals.
Furthermore, PCM and DSD up-sampling is available for any digital input, while a dual-network interface manages switching between the P1's Ethernet and SFP fibre ports, promising complete isolation from network noise.
The P1's zinc and acrylic Roon Ready remote control is also precision-made in Austria. This hands you control over playback and settings, input selection, per-input volume memory and custom input labels. Lumin's app also features the same should your mobile device be nearer.
The Lumin P1 is available in natural or black anodised aluminium with an RRP of £8,495.
