The Next Generation Streaming Transport.  An all-new LUMIN for DAC owners; LUMIN U2 focusses on pure digital. After the huge success of our sweetspot price/performance LUMIN T3, LUMIN U2 brings the same design philosophy to a transport for the first time.

Taking chassis construction methods, linear power supply design and dual-network from the multi-award-winning LUMIN P1, the all-new LUMIN U2 brings high-end digital right into the heart of the LUMIN range.

New processing hardware and software first introduced with the U2-Mini and T3. The best features used from our flagship players such as Fibre Networking, Linear Power Supply and Dual-stage voltage regulators

New for a LUMIN Transport - U2 uses CNC panel construction finished in a new silky surfacing process taken from our high-end P1 that is less susceptible to finger marks and easier to clean.
