LUMOS AURO V2 Review: Lighting Up the Home Theatre Scene

Good projection quality with a brightness of 6,000 lumens
Sleek interface to access apps
Wireless connectivity performance
Officially certified by Netflix & YouTube
Singular HDMI port

In the ever-evolving world of home entertainment, The LUMOS AURO V2 projector is a bright light in the Home Theatre scene marking a significant upgrade over its predecessor., the original AURO.

The most compelling upgrade is that it boasts official certifications from Netflix and YouTube, ensuring smooth, fast, and reliable streaming experiences without the lag or compatibility issues often encountered with uncertified devices. LUMOS is the first Singaporean projector brand to get such certifications.


The LUMOS AURO V2 showcases a transformation in design, moving from the rectangular form of its predecessor to a more compact, square shape.

This change not only enhances its aesthetic appeal, fitting seamlessly into modern interiors with its sleek, curvy corners and matte metallic finish but also makes it more space efficient.


Weighing in at 2kg, it is lighter than the first AURO, further emphasizing its portability and ease of integration into various home settings.

With a brightness of 6,000 lumens, the LUMOS AURO V2 delivers clear and vibrant images even in well-lit environments, ensuring a great viewing experience regardless of the time of day.


While the native display of 1080p (supports 4K) does the job well, and can expand up to a whopping 200-inch projection, it would keep it no bigger than 100-inch for the best results.

The projector’s interface has seen a noteworthy overhaul, offering a more intuitive, user-friendly navigation that runs faster and smoother.


This, combined with new auto keystone correction, auto-focus, and auto obstacle adjustments, streamlines the setup process, allowing you to get set up and enjoy content with minimal fuss.

Connectivity wise, the AURO V2 only has one HDMI port and two USB. I would much prefer if it were reversed.


However the availability of Bluetooth 5.0 and the inclusion of built-in phone mirroring connectivity with both iOS and Android devices, emphasizes wireless connectivity, reflecting a shift towards a more cable-free entertainment setup.

The dual speakers, augmented with a passive radiator subwoofer, deliver a powerful and immersive audio experience, reducing the need for external speakers.

While the audio quality might not meet the expectations of audiophiles or those seeking a deeply immersive sound experience – even for the best TVs I always recommend a standalone audio solution, it is perfect for that portable cinema for chalets, or small apartments.


In operation, the AURO V2 stands out for its quick and efficient functionality. Streaming apps like Netflix and YouTube are easily accessible, with rapid load times and responsive navigation.

The projector’s image and sound settings are easily adjustable, offering customization to enhance viewing pleasure.

Moreover, its casting functions are straightforward to use, supporting various devices and platforms with ease.

The LUMOS AURO V2 not only addresses the limitations of its predecessor but also sets a new benchmark for budget-friendly home projectors.

At SGD 498 its blend of aesthetic appeal, enhanced connectivity, and superior performance at a competitive price point makes it a standout option for those looking to upgrade their home cinema experience.

For existing AURO users and newcomers alike, the AURO V2 represents a wise investment, promising an enriched viewing experience without breaking the bank.
