Just as SONOS has taken the lifestyle audio world by storm, the same can be said of French starlet manufacturer, Devialet. We reviewed the Phantom speaker which, by itself, can be the star of a lifestyle system — and giving SONOS a run for its money — and used as a stereo pair, can be a very good high end reference system.
What is capturing the high end audience are the shiny, pizza box magic boxes. The box includes an amplifier (Class A and D), preamplifier, including phono stage, streamer, DAC and speaker correction software. Pretty incredible considering the size of the box.
The new model is called the Expert Pro. Devialet describes it as ...'Expert Pro is the ultimate audiophile system, for the most discerning of music lovers. Well above and beyond an ordinary amplifier, Devialet reinvents and combines for the first time all of the key components of expert playback (preamplifier, amplifier, DAC, streamer, phono stage) in a single and extremely thin slab. Your Expert Pro is unlike any other: set each of the thousands of possible configurations for a unique musical experience. Regardless of the source. Regardless of the speakers.'
When the Expert Pro arrives, we’ll be reviewing it to see what all the fuss is about. Stay tuned.
