With the latest Lumin app on iOS, you may try searching Tidal or Qobuz in Chinese, e.g. 陳潔儀

(Not that there are many, however.)

Not sure if there are still LUMIN X1 owners that are using just the Ethernet RJ45 connection for whatever reasons.

The big jump in sound quality moving to the SFP connection truly justifies the additional cost of the X1.

I strongly encourage X1 owners to switch to SFP connection if they have not done so.  ;)

We have released LUMIN Firmware 12 to add the multi-room feature, which allows loosely synchronized playback of music among several LUMIN or Songcast-compatible players (e.g. Linn).

- Any LUMIN model can be a 'Receiver'
- LUMIN X1 / T2 / D2 / U1 / U1 MINI / M1 can all be 'Senders'

An interesting technical aspect of our implementation is that a LUMIN sender model can perform MQA Core decoding ("first unfold") or DSD to PCM transcoding before sending to Linn players via Songcast protocol. This is noteworthy because Linn does not support MQA, and old Linn players did not support DSD.

Usage instructions:

A convenience switching feature is also added to LUMIN M1 for the RCA input. You may now use the LUMIN iOS app or Linn Kazoo app to switch its input to RCA. It could also be done by standby / wakeup or re-plugging in the RCA input module.

This marks 7 years of firmware upgrade since the original LUMIN (December 2012).
