Source Systems Ltd. of San Clemente, CA. is dedicated to the import, representation and distribution of high resolution, network, and PC audio system components. With focus on the evolution of high-resolution digital audio, our suppliers develop and manufacture products with innovative, proprietary, award winning and industry leading technologies!
Based on extensive broadcast reception experience from Pixel Magic Systems, Ltd., Source Systems presents Lumin Music, the audiophile network music player family, transports, amplifier, and auto NAS devices for both Optical and Ethernet based networking. Lumin systems provide the finest in audiophile quality and reproduction.
In early 2022 Lumin introduced the U2 Mini digital transport streamer-renderer as a substantial update to the original U1 Mini. In early 2023, Lumin’s newly introduced preamp/streamer/AV Hub model P1 was named a 2022 Product of the Year by The Absolute Sound. This high-end “Control center” includes new multi-use capability for audiophile level streaming systems. The P1 is Lumin’s most versatile product to date, combining network-based Ethernet and optical streaming capability, with high end dual mono digital to analogue converters (DAC), multiple analog and digital inputs (including HDMI), dual Femto clock processing and dual mono LUNDAHL transformer output stage from Lumin’s flagship model X1.
2022 also saw the introduction of the new Lumin model T3, allowing consumers a moderate price point providing truly exceptional performance with expanded audio output resolution for native PCM and DSD file formats. Much of Lumin’s X1 technology has been applied to the T3, U2Mini and P1 models.
All Lumin digital streamers and transports include The Lumin Application and utilize LEEDH digital signal processing, at no extra cost to the consumer. Lumin is the only line that we are aware of that includes LEEDH processing for all transports and integrated units. Lumin continues to win global accolades and top awards in high-resolution digital audio. Lumin's software application is an industry leader, enabling Lumin system control options, internet radio, major online streaming services, audio file selection, search by parameter and user defined playlists.
More than any other media control software, ease of use and intuitiveness excel with The Lumin Application. Furthermore, Lumin is an OEM supplier for application technology to other manufacturers. Lumin is DLNA and UPnP compliant and is based on eliminating multiple hardware functionality within components. This “purist audiophile approach”, uses only modular and independent ultra-low noise component designs. Unlike other manufacturers and based on extensive broadcast reception experience, Lumin will add no “convenience’ feature that potentially interferes with the purity of a data stream. Lumin is compatible with Tidal and Tidal Connect, Spotify, MQA, Qobuz, AirPlay, TuneIn internet radio and FLAC lossless internet radio. The Lumin application provides selectable levels of PCM up-sampling, DSD up sampling and PCM to DSD conversion.

For 2023, we are pleased to announce selective USA distribution for Matthew Bond Audio. Matthew Bond, founder, and designer of TARA Labs, has applied new, proprietary and highly advanced technology for reference interconnects, loudspeaker cables and burn in discs.
In interconnect cable and speaker cables, state of the art designs mandate low inductance and low capacitance, wider bandwidth and the utilization of “8 nines” pure copper and solid core implementation. High frequency extension, attack and decay is achieved by having Capacitance at 2 Picofarads (pF) per foot for the Analog Reference Interconnect.
Insights directly from Matthew: “Innovative and advanced designs in loudspeaker cable technology having ideal electrical characteristics to transfer the musical signal without the need for phase correcting filter networks. Exotic materials are employed to create a sonic signature never heard before such as PTFE (Teflon®) and silver bearing copper conductors.” Subjectively the listening experience becomes holographic, three dimensional, highly detailed, with resolution previous unheard of in cables.
fidata byI-O DATA DEVICE of Japan is a category of solid-state audiophile servers, which live up to the meaning of the term “reliability.” There is a transparency, detail, decay, and depth of field that we have never experienced in any other solid state audio storage device. fidata is an innovative, highly advanced design, engineered to store and extract audio information that you never knew existed on your digital recordings.
fidata is a server, renderer, ripper, tagger and CD player. (These last 3 features require an external USB, Blu-ray compliant disc player). This external drive remains outside the server to eliminate noise associated with mechanical disk drives.
The new fidata high-resolution audio system delivers quality that approaches that of live events and original masters. Most digital playback sources cannot come close to level of performance fidata provides. Until now data was stored on CDs, DVDs, mechanical drives, NAS devices, USB drives, PCs, cloud servers or flash sticks. fidata's audiophile platform was designed and engineered specifically to enable silicon based pro SSD flash, combined with new isolation methods, audio, and power technology. To advance audio performance further, fidata introduces X cluster SSD architecture. Currently unmatched, fidata brings you closer to the original performance than any other source we have heard. fidata is 100% designed, engineered, and manufactured in Japan. Hearing is believing so please ask your retailer for an audition. For detailed information and an awards summary please visit: http://www.iodate.jp/fidata/en/index.htm.
For 2023 fidata’s parent company, I-O-Data Device of Japan, provides an expansion of their line offerings with Soundgenic servers/renderer/ripper/tagger with a new on-screen system control guide. Ripper/tagger and CD playback requires an optional USB external Blu-ray/DVD disk drive. 2 TB SSD and 4 TB HDD configurations are available. All products are 100% designed, engineered, and manufactured in Japan.
Bringing fidata’s logic and expertise into cable design is evolutionary. We offer new, high-quality LAN and USB cables, designed to deliver digital output streams from ﬁdata and Soundgenic servers, to your audio player or USB DAC. These cables bring together several technologies and components including high-grade silver-plated copper conductors, high-quality connectors, and noise-reducing features designed from the perspective of ensuring audio quality. They are perfect for use with the fidata Audio Server as well as other audio devices such as audio players and USB DACs.

Philharmonia “Mini” by Amadeus is a very high-definition loudspeaker system combining innovation and technology, with style, and a pristine sonic character. These speakers utilize proprietary wave guide technology. The speakers “Zero coloration” Birchwood cabinets were initially created specifically for the Philharmonia de Paris recording and mastering studios, built to capture performances by the world’s most prestigious symphonic orchestras. The speakers were designed by Michel DELUC, Amadeus’ Director of Research & Development, along with world-renown architect Jean NOUVEL, who designed the new Philharmonia de Paris concert hall.
