Lumin Inside? The Audiolab 9000N Streamer, a Lumin in sheeps clothing?

Has anyone any real knowledge about this being true or not additionally what other "high end streamers"may be hyped up but the actualy componets inside are matched or even bettered by lower cost units ?

Check out the You Tube video below:



The Sonore Optical Rendu is as good as the Lumin X1 as a streamer. They sound different and preferences will vary. A sort of chocolate vs vanilla comparison. Both are great when used with a fibre input.

Every audio product had hype attached to it. It’s called advertising. But also overly excited children (fanboys) who just opened the box of a new toy. Cost often determines the quality of a product ...but many times... it does not.
