Welcome to Luminist

The Natural Beauty of Light

Sunset Over Lake George, by John Kensett

An art movement which began as a branch of the Hudson River School, Luminism emphasized fine detail, where the strokes of paint were so exquisitely done as to render the brush's mark invisible. It emphasized depth, and light, and the beauty of the natural world.

The Luminst Revision honors the detail and accomplishments of these artists. We seek to have our engineering embody these qualities. Our improved design is made to connect you to the music, so that the artist's depth, the exquisite detail of their work touches your soul.

So far, our critics agree.

What They're Saying...

The Luminist 25th Emphasizes Depth and Natural Beauty

More detailed, loads of top end detail, cymbals, the drumsticks weight as the hit cymbals, bass has better tone/pitch between notes, bass guitar has an awesome growl/bark, both kick drum and bass are more percussive, hit you in the chest more...guitar is more "in the room" ...These are both very good interconnects, but I think Luminist reveals more information. I heard the bass filling in on the brand new Luminist just in the 1.5 hours. Luminist is better out of the box.

There is no comparison! This is the largest difference between cables I have yet heard.
