Lumin now support Spotify connect!

Thanks wklie for the firmware upgrade.

Just upgraded the firmware and it’s working. Now the display will show everything like the song name, artists name and bitrate.

@ wklie, is this still in beta or final firmware to support Spotify connect?

Does native Spotify Connect sound better than Spotify via AirPlay?

Initial impression when comparing both at the same volume at the amp, Spotify connect seems to play louder. It just sound fuller from top to bottom as compare to via airplay which sound “thin”.

So I think yes it sound better based on my personal impression.

Others may want to input your impression?

Agree. Spotify connect sounds fuller compared to airplay.

Coinciding with the release of Lumin D2, Lumin Firmware 10 (for all Lumin network players and transport) introduces support for Spotify Connect. Note: Requires a Spotify Premium account.

Although it was possible to use Spotify Connect via AirPlay, the Lumin native support of Spotify Connect offers the following advantages:

- Better sound quality - as confirmed by beta testers here (thank you!) and our own listening tests

- Support for multiple platform including Android

- Instantaneous response via Spotify app

- Optional upconversion to DSD - so even DSD-only LampizatOr DAC owners can enjoy Spotify via Lumin

Lumin supports Roon Ready, MQA, Tidal Masters, Qobuz Hi-Res, Spotify Connect, TuneIn, AirPlay.

Seeking users to participate in a PCM Filter Listening Test.

Requires Lumin A1 / T1 / D2 / D1

(Not for Lumin S1 / M1 / U1)

Objective: to find out whether an alternative filter sounds better for 44.1kHz music and Hi-Res PCM music using an experimental firmware. Switching between the standard filter and the alternative filter only requires a setting change using Lumin app, without requiring installation of the firmware again.

(It is also possible to downgrade from the experimental firmware to official firmware if desired.)

To participate, please let me know your Lumin model so I can send you an experimental firmware and further instructions.

Thank you.
