T2 | Network Audio Player
The LUMIN T2 heralds the first redesign of the classic A1/T1 main boards and chassis. This new approach combines solid CNC panel construction with X1 technology to hit the performance sweet spot. Combining a new generation processor with a precision 32-bit internal digital volume and a discreet clock system allows the network player to reconcile what might seem like aural opposites: clarity and warmth, delicacy and strength, speed and color.
The new thick CNC panelled construction provides upgraded structural rigidity and shielding as well as the high-end LUMIN family aesthetic. The dual-mono operating ESS SABRE32 ES9028Pro DAC chips work in a fully balanced layout with high-quality components. The LUMIN T2’s Completely redesigned analogue buffer includes audiograde output capacitor and ultra-low-noise and high dynamic range.
Native support for TIDAL, Qobuz, Spotify and AirPlay, gives access to tens of millions of songs and as part of LUMIN’s “programme of continuous development” the T2 can be updated to support any new platform. It is currently compatible with the most important high-resolution formats, such as MQA, DSD, FLAC and WAV in addition to being Roon Ready.
The LUMIN T2 offers unaltered and highly involving music reproduction, transparency and organic life-like warmness when needed. The combination of careful engineering and high quality components makes the T2 remarkably approach the X1’s (LUMIN’s flagship network player) fast-paced nature, transparency and dynamic quality which is quite the achievement.
