Lumin S1 Network Streamer,  Silver or S1B Black $9,850 - Now Roon Ready

Lumin - S1

Our FLAGSHIP model, LUMIN S1 adds DSD128 5.6Mhz support by utilising 4 ESS SABRE32 Reference DAC chips to deliver a total of 16 DACs per channel in parallel.

While LUMIN S1 brings greater resolution and a more dynamic sound, no stone has been left unturned to ensure that the characteristic LUMIN musicality is delivered. This has involved tuning every part of the system to complement these new DAC chips, including revising the clocking system and enhancing the external dual-toroidal power supply.

Effortlessly plays everything from DSD 128 5.6Mhz through high-res PCM to mainstream formats FLAC, Apple Lossless, MP3 and Internet radio streams.

4 ESS SABRE32 9018 DAC chips delivering 16 DACs per channel

New clocking system

Reprinted from 6Moons review

The S1 shares the same solid aluminum chassis as the current A1 but offers higher levels of performance by utilizing 4 x ESS Sabre 9018 eight-channel DAC chips (two per channel). This arrangement delivers 16 paralleled DACs per side as compared to the single Wolfson WM8741 DAC per channel of the A1. This modern Sabre multiple Delta Sigma or MDS architecture confers on Lumïn’s new flagship comparable D/A conversion to the Accuphase DC-901. MDS is a technique for reducing conversion errors to improve the measurable performance of D/A converters. The result is higher dynamic range, better linearity, lower harmonic distortion plus further improvements in other areas.

The S1 also gets a new clocking system with 6 x NZ2520S Nihon Dempa Kogyo crystal clock oscillators where the A1 used four; 24-bit/192kHz compatibility; 1-bit DSD running at 5.6MHz that can be output over HDMI; and an upgraded twin toroid power supply. The S1’s oscillator base frequencies (input sampling rate x 256) are 11.289MHz for 44.1KHz signal, 12.288MHz for 48KHz, 22.579MHz for 88.2KHz, 24.576MHz for 96KHz, 45.158MHz for 176.4KHz and 49.152MHz for 192KHz. The A1 used the lower 4-values oscillator. This clocking system is said to exhibit extremely low phase noise (-151/-157dB @ 20MHz). Related phase jitter should be around 55fs (femto clock value of 0.055ps) according to the manufacturer. As was already the case for the A1, the digital output via USB is disabled. The CPU chips used in both devices don’t support USB audio output. All Lumïn network players share the same CPU chips.
