Lumin T2 streamer

I have had my Lumin T2 for about 4 months. It is hooked up to my Anthem 1120 receiver and I am using a Sim 330A amp to power my L-R Paradigm 85F speakers with two Paradigm 1000SW subs. The Lumin is connected to the 1120 with good quality RCA cables

I just was never blown away by the sound, the bass was never right. It sounded good but not what I had expected for the money.

A few days ago I changed the setting on the Lumin to Analog Audio Re-sampling from on to custom and I am using the custom defaults

The change has really been dramatic. The bass now sounds perfect, the soundstage is more open, music has more of a live sound. My family all noticed the change. 

I really have no idea what turning analog  audio re-sampling to custom does but it made a huge difference. 

Is it possible that before the Lumin was using the DAC from the Anthem 1120 receiver and now it is using the Lumin Dac as it was meant to?



This the way , I understand it.

I use the analog output of the Lumin to my integrated amp.

So I use the DAC of the Lumin.

I was wrong about using custom on resampling. It changes nothing. I am getting great results by turning ARC off my 1120. Last night I turned off signal processing so I am as far as I know using the DAC of the Lumin. I tried this before and my family liked it with signal processing on. It means no subs but my Paradigm 85F speakers have great bass
