X1 Heritage

LUMIN P1 takes many flagship features from the outstanding LUMIN X1:

Fibre Networking

Immensely popular on X1, optical networking provides complete isolation from network noise. Additionally, dual network ports mean that you can connect LUMIN L1 or a NAS directly to P1.

Femto Clocking System

P1 includes dual Femto crystal oscillators and our proprietary FPGA clock distribution system first debuted in X1.

Output Buffer Design

The fully balanced Dual Mono analogue output module including legendary Lundahl Output transformers has been keeping music-lovers happy since the original LUMIN A1.

Dual-toroidal Power Supply

The roomy P1 chassis provides space to move the X1 toroids inboard for a cleaner installation, while retaining all the benefits of separate analogue and digital circuits.

New Remote Control

A new tactile infrared remote control allows easy change of input, volume adjustment, playlist navigation and more.

The exceptionally well-constructed acrylic and zinc LUMIN remote is made in Austria and is entirely Roon Ready.

The new infrared receiver built in to LUMIN P1 is compatible with universal remote controls, phones and automation systems.

Flexible setup options

Use as a streamer, a DAC, a pre-amplifier or all three!

Idea 1 - Streaming DAC

LUMIN P1 can be used like all other LUMIN players. With its DSD512/PCM384 support, Femto Clock System, Fibre Networking, toroidal power supply, and Leedh Processing, P1 is second only to LUMIN X1 in pure streaming ability.

Idea 2 - Hi-Fi Hub

Connect all your stereo sources to LUMIN P1 and attach a power amplifier and you've got everything you need for an incredible music system.

Idea 3 - 2-channel TV System

No need for an AV Receiver. Simply attach your HDMI sources to LUMIN P1 and P1 to your TV. With HDMI ARC, all your audio comes through your main speakers.
