Hi guys, can recommend authorized dealer shops in Hong Kong for Lumin products with good pricing?

Please visit us at Hong Kong AV Show 2019.  There will be a closeout sale of Lumin A1 (Silver).

Hi All

I've been using the Lumin U1 mini as transport to a denafrip terminator dac. I have one issue which is the controll app on Android. It tends to cut out a lot when I lock my phone and reopen the app. It takes some time even up to 3- 5 over mins to sync. Some times the sync will be stable but sometimes it's not.

WiFi is stable in my house using orbis mesh router. I had to use an extender to connect with Lan cable to connect to the Lumin. Could this be the weak link? Inputs are appreciated.

Thanks!

Nobody use the Lumin app.

Use JRiver or Roon to stream your music to the Lumin.

Currently am using music stored on thumbrive that's plugged to the Lumin. The app is just a remote to control.

Use Ipad to control the Lumin's app as the Androids' version sucks.

I have one issue which is the control app on Android.

If you have an iOS device, please try that.  Since Lumin players are OpenHome compliant, you may also use other OpenHome apps such as Linn Kazoo, Bubble DS Next, etc. for playback control.

Lumin app is only required for changing settings and firmware upgrade.

Hi Wklie,

I have been using Lumin U1 Mini for past 2 weeks. I plugged a 16gb thumbbdrive directly to the Lumin as music library. It was working perfectly fine until few days ago, Lumin cannot load the files in the thumbbdrive. I tried switching off Lumin completely and on again to reload the files, but later cannot find the files again.
The Lumin app showing "sda1" and "sda2" folders, but both are empty inside.
Kindly help.

Edited: Just tried Linn Kazoo app.. cannot find the files too.. problem with my thumbbdrive?

Please unplug the USB thumb drive.  Power cycle the Lumin.  After it is booted up and shows the progress circle on the front panel, then plug in the thumb drive again.

Hi Wklie,

Thanks for the reply. I will try it later when back home from work.

Also, what is the recommendation when not using Lumin?
1. Just leave Lumin power on all the time
2. Switch off Lumin from app
3. Switch off Lumin from app and switch off from the power button at the back of the unit

Answer is (1) Leave Lumin on all the time and (2) switch off the Lumin display for longer life with the App.  The Lumin should then be on-standby.

I'd just leave it powered on (if not living in an area with unstable electricity), and make use of Idle Sleep setting that turns off the front panel (or just turn off the front panel).
