[#1] Lumin player and Esoteric apps    
本人用Lumin S-1 及Esoteric CD player, 播file 時有時用 Lumin S1 內置解碼出聲 (Analog out) , 亦有時用Esoteric CD player 的解碼出聲 (Digital Out). 一直用Lumin apps play file, 最近想試下其它 apps, download 了Esoteric apps (其實佢都係同Lumin買apps) 看看同 Lumin 有何不可同,用咗幾次發覺有以下分別:

1) Lumin apps 有MQA 選項 (Analog out 或 digital out), 即是我用Lumin S1 或Esoteric CD player 出聲都可以。但用Esoteric apps 冇呢個選擇,只可以用Lumin S1 出聲 (Analog out) 不能用 Esoteric CD Player 內置DAC (Digital out)。請問是否正常?如果用Esoteric Network Player + Lumin apps 是否情況一樣?

2) 另外Lumin apps 外觀可以選黑色背景或銀灰色(主題:光或暗),但Esoteric apps 冇得選。是否用Esoteric Network Player 才有此選擇(N-01, N-05, N-03T)?

Lumin apps (有 MOQ mode: Analog Out or Digital Out):

1. After setting the S1 using Lumin app, you can use any other OpenHome app (including Esoteric Sound Stream or Linn Kazoo) to control the playback.

2. In Esoteric app, general settings are independent from whether you use an Esoteric hardware or not.

3. Only Lumin app supports iCloud.

Thanks! I also try to download mconnect Control HD and mconnect Lite (both are free), but it seem like mconnect Control HD cannot work with my Lumin S-1. It ask me to connect mconnect with my Lumin but I really can’t find any setting to do this (see below picture). Misconnect lite is OK, I can use it with my Lumin S-1 but the function is very simple.

1) May I know if mconnect Control HD cannot work with Lumin player? It can only work with the mconnect hardware embedded device (some specific steaming player in the market)?

2) There is other mconnect apps like mconnect Player HD and mconnect Player apps but these 2 apps need to purchase. Can it work with Lumin player? If these apps has playlist function (播放清單功能)like Lumin apps?


3) Is there any other apps has playlist function like Lumin ? Does Linn Kazoo has this function? Lumin apps is absolutely great, but using Lumin app for years, just want to try something new for fun. Thanks.

1, 2: We did not test mConnect, not sure. I only knew that there are several variations and they are functionally different.

3. Linn Kazoo should work.

Other control UI you may test include Bubble DS Next for Android, and Roon (USD699).

Thanks. In the future, if I change my Lumin-S1 to Lumin U1 (without internal DAC), and I use my Esoteric CDP to work with Lumin U-1. In this case does it mean I will not see the MOQ mode in Lumin apps’ setting because it only can use Digital Output (Esoteric ‘s DAC)?

For U1 or U1 MINI, it has the option of MQA Digital mode (but no MQA Analog mode because there is no analog output from U1 / U1 MINI). This will perform MQA Core decoding (first unfold) to achieve 88.2kHz or 96kHz to be fed into an external DAC.

Which Esoteric CDP do you have?

#6: I found what the five variants of mConnect apps are meant for. You may try mConnect *PLAYER* series with Lumin (not tested but there is a chance it may work). mConnect *CONTROL* will not work with Lumin hardware because it requires ConversDigital hardware.

Don't know. We never tested mConnect Player, but at least two people told us it is compatible.

I have purchase mconnect Player HD and test it last night. Initially it seem like mconnect apps is not as convenient as Lumin. For example:

“Seem like” mconnect apps cannot create playlist with Tidal music together with my NAS’s music file. For example: I can choose a CD’s file from my NAS and create a playlist in my Lumin apps (on left hand side in Lumin apps screen). If I want, I can also put a Tidal’s album on my playlist column . Then I can pay all these files one by one. If I don’t want some songs in the playlist, I can delete it by edit function. But in misconnect Player HD apps, it seem like I cannot do this (Mean cannot mixed with NAS and Tidal’s file in my Playlist), Tidal’s playlist and my sever (NAS) music file is in separated playlist (?).

Maybe I don’t know how to do this because I only use 20 minutes to test the mconnect Player HD apps. I will spend more time in it. At this moment I will say Lumin apps is more ease to use, more convenient and more user friendly.
