WHY LUMIN U2
After the huge success of our sweetspot price/performance LUMIN T3, LUMIN U2 brings the same design philosophy to a transport for the first time.
Taking chassis construction methods, linear power supply design and dual-network from the multi-award-winning LUMIN P1, the all-new LUMIN U2 brings high-end digital right into the heart of the LUMIN range.
Transport-only unit featuring the finest LUMIN components
All-new processing system
Internal ultra-low-noise linear power supply
Dedicated USB port for Audio Output
CNC chassis construction
Draws the very best aspects from throughout the LUMIN range
New processing hardware and software first introduced with the U2-Mini and T3
The best features used from our flagship players such as Fibre Networking, Linear Power Supply and Dual-stage voltage regulators
New for a LUMIN Transport - U2 uses CNC panel construction finished in a new silky surfacing process taken from our high-end P1 that is less susceptible to finger marks and easier to clean.
