Lumin X1 latest Review like we have been saying

For many years we have been touting the Lumin products as being one of the best sounding and best implimented paths to creating a fantastic sound in your system.

We sought to be a Lumin dealer after the A1 came out and pretty much got rave reviews as being the best sounding streamer out there, each successive product was better the new T2 is amazing at its price point and challenges $7k streamer/dacs/

The lastest review

sums up Lumins history and even offers a comparison of the X1 vs the Total Dac, and DCS and the Aqua Formula, we actually have tested the upgraded Formula V2 with the Statement and it does sound even bettter.
Summation the best sound the reviewer ever accheived was with the X1.

We sell some of the worlds best dacs, including T+A, Light Harmonic, Aqua Hif, Naim, Mytek, Bricasti, and with the X1 you have to spend $30-50k to better the X1, it is nice to see that other people are agreeing with exactly what we have been saying all along.

If you are looking for the best sound for the money, rock solid reliability, a fantastic feature set, Tidal, Qbouz, Spotify, Apple Airplay to play Youtube or Soundcloud, OTA upgrades, Roon endpoint, full Mqua, DSD and High data rate upsampling, upconversion and playability, solid build quality, built in volume control, the Lumin products are hard to beat.

Haters? Yep. If you don't like the thread, don't read it, no one is holding a gun to your head. As someone looking to buy a quality streamer in the near future, I get a lot of information from a thread like this. Do I think Audio Doctor has a dog in the fight? Sure. Does that mean their post is without value? Not hardly. 
Thanks, Dave and Troy.
Haters? No but take a look at a recent thread titled "Need tips to better my sound." Don't see audiotroy chiming in helping that poster! 
@builder3 you are missing @big_greg’s point. As a recent victim of the OP derailing my own thread, it only seems appropriate to call out his shenanigans when he posts something like this. He won’t learn, that much is clear, but at least we can help others understand he’s not writing posts to further the community. He is only writes posts to sell products. 
purchased my first streamer recently. auditioned aurender n-10, studied auraulic (sp?), ayre, and a few others. for a couple years. was in paralysis. ease of use was Very important. purchased the Lumin T2. i think it's just perfect. the unit is just beautiful, also. got the black one. like black glass. very happy guy here. my first input / recommendation on a-gon. good luck....
Quite interesting how three_easy_payments question has been ignored, not once, but twice. If OP has no experience with a comparison between his Lumin product and T + A DAC 8 DSD, why not politely say so. I too am interested in an answer. I pair my T+A DAC 8 DSD with Signalyst HQ player and upsample all of my music to DSD 48x512. I can't say I'd never buy another DAC but I can say it won't be any time in the near future because I'm constantly blown away by the SQ I receive from my system. I looked into Lumin products before purchasing a new DAC but decided on the T + A because, if I understand things correctly, I'd still need a computer to download music from CD sources to the Lumin. And maybe that's the thing, Lumin is perfect for streaming. I'm not a streamer. Even if this is the case, politely say so. Having said all that, T + A and Signalyst can be partnered with ROON for a superior listening experience. So @audiotroy, how does Lumin compare to the T+A DAC 8 DSD and Signalyst HQPlayer and ROON set up? If you don't know, please just say so. From ROON's partner page:
it seems both Lumin and T+A are on the list. I'm also open for responses from others who have had experience comparing these 2 systems.
