Instant Ship: LUMIN T3 DAC & Network Music Player
The LUMIN T3 streaming DAC, is an advanced Network Music Player equipped with a dual-mono Sabre DAC, resampling capabilities, and LEEDH volume control. This cutting-edge device is Roon Ready and features native MQA support.
Derived from the highly successful Lumin T2, the Lumin T3 sets a new standard for excellence among Lumin's all-in-one units. The T3 boasts a completely redesigned hardware and software architecture, introducing fresh functionalities, enhanced resampling flexibility, and expanded potential for future software upgrades, aligning it with Lumin's flagship product offerings.
The T3 maintains the same dual-mono DAC found in the T2, featuring two ES9028Pro SABRE chips that deliver exceptional detail while retaining Lumin's signature musicality and speed. Furthermore, the T3 incorporates a sleek finish inspired by the high-end P1, which reduces susceptibility to fingerprints and simplifies cleaning.
