Please burn it in 7x24 for two weeks or more, by enabling repeat mode.  You may also use a mix of different sample rates of PCM / DSD in the playlist.  You may turn off the amp if necessary.

The X1 is a beauty
My only gripe is the power switch at the rear
I believe it was rear positioned for aesthetic reasons

In all my many years of owning all 3 Lumins....I never used the power switch.  You switch off the Lumin remotely with your iPads or Mobile phone.

One of the basics for great Hi-Fi sound is to keep your equipment on standby whenever you are not using them.  Try it.

in the past i used to leave it in standby mode, but now turn it off more often due to rising electricity cost  and wanting to reduce carbon footprint

I use the PS Audio Regenerator. I can turn off equipment with the remote and use a program to decide which equipment to keep powered on.

Oh dear, don't let PAP and SP determine how Hi-Fi your system should sound....please.  No matter how much of your carbon footprint you managed to reduced, the price of electricity WILL go up once the carbon tax kick in.   You are not directly being taxed.  The electricity supplier will have to pay this tax and it will be pass down to customers.

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

There are 8 authorised dealers listed in the Lumin website.

Since the Hong Kong AV show is on this coming weekend, traditionally, there should be good Lumin product show pricing.

Perhaps Peter can give the potential Singapore Lumin owners some advance information for them to plan to make the trip for the HK show.

With a good external psu, the U1 mini will perform far beyond your expectation.  :D
