Lumin Network Players – trade in and demonstration
Lumin are at the top of their game and their streaming components are as good as it gets. This month we have two most excellent Lumin specials – the first is the D2 in black that’s just been traded in – it’s an absolutely current model and fully updated. While it’s Lumin’s ‘entry level’ player (at $4500 new) it delivers a captivating performance as the many reviews can attest. This particular unit has done sterling service in a seriously high end system for only 12 months and has been replaced by the X1. Sold as new, with original packing, a 12 month warranty and our highest recommendation. NZ$3500.
The T2 is Lumin’s most popular model and has just been replaced by the T3 – which combines our new-for-2022 processing system, solid CNC-panel construction and X1 technology to deliver maximum price/performance. That said they share exactly the same DAC set and like all Lumin models run on the same App.
This is our own demonstration unit in silver – it’s never left our house and like the D2 above, is sold as new, full original packing and a 12 month warranty at NZ$7000. The new T3 is $9500. Side by side with the D2 there is an obvious performance advantage – the T2 is much more lucid and alive and more adept at unwinding complex passages. There’s also significant differences in size and weight between the D2 and T2 – simply put, a lot more has gone into it. The reviews of the T2 are something else again.
Both the D2 and T2 sound amazing run straight into power amplifiers. The LEEDH lossless volume control means the Lumin players outperform most separate preamplifiers so you can build a much better sounding, simpler and cost effective system. Of course you can also insert these players into any existing system and still get by far the best sound of any network player on the market.
Coming soon – trade in Well Tempered Simplex turntable
One of our clients has found the only way to improve upon their much loved little Well Tempered Simplex is to go up the food chain to the new 254. While the Simplex has gone to MK2 status, the original gives very little away – the plain black plinth and darker platter being the only obvious changes made. Pricing will be around $1500 assuming everything checks out – this is a turntable I know like thee back of my hand and so we’ll be making sure the next owner is as happy as the last. Do let us know ahead of time if you’re interested – this is a real high end turntable going for a Pro-ject price and it’s certainly something we don’t often see.
NuForce iDo DAC & headphone amp – $80
Here’s one for the die-hard apple fans – I know there are still plenty of people that remain rather attached to their original iPods. I wrote about the iDo at length when they came out and everything we found then still applies today. With original power supply and stand, silver finish.
