Lumin Announces Remote Control Package
Since Lumin introduced Leedh Processing to its models, the next step was to offer a physical volume control.
Lumin's Infrared Remote Control Package was born from customers that are enjoying the addition of Leedh Processing digital volume control to their Lumin product who now demanded simple control unit. The upshot is that these devices can now work as preamplifiers.
Furthermore, the new infrared control unit can be used with Lumin systems regardless of whether-or-not it has the Leedh Processing application. The only requirement is a free USB port. So, great news no matter if you own an M1, T2, or anything else from the manufacturer's catalogue.
The remote control bundle includes an infrared remote control handset that's, of course, made in Austria, and is finished in black acrylic piano lacquer sat in a zinc frame. Also, there is an infrared USB receiver that connects to a free USB port on the device. The cable measures almost a metre long which will allow for flexible placement of the receiver.
As well as providing a physical volume control, the handset also features standard playback functions such as mute, play, pause, next, previous, shuffle, repeat and putting the unit on standby. Finally, it is also Roon compatible.
The Lumin USB IR remote is $440 and available to pre-order.
