The Lumin A1 is capable of pulling audio media from most external digital sources, including a NAS, plus its dual-mono Wolfson DACs play back a multitude of formats up to and including 32-bit/384kHz PCM/DXD and standard DSD. Operating wirelessly through its own graphically superb iPad app, the A-1 releases the reins of sonic tension and dryness that constrain many digital recordings, adding warmth and weightier presence even to mundane 16-bit/44kHz recordings. I’ve also noted over the months that Lumin makes sure its products are well supported with regular software and firmware updates, and, most recently, Tidal support. It’s so good that it’s the “computer” I’ve come to accept as a high-end source component.
