Holy mackerel! Devialet are trickling down!
I accidentally stumbled into the Devialet website tonight. There happens to be some news to be had there. The D Premier is rebranded Devialet 240, and is now accompanied by two smaller siblings, the 110 and 170 (the figure refers to the wattage into 6 Ohm of each amp).
The new range still incorporates the AIR wireless streamer and a host of digital and analogue inputs but now also sports a RJ45 and USB port (something Devialet's Thierry Massoubre renounced in an e-mail just 6 months ago). All digital data (also the SPDIF) are synched to the master clock (Bye bye jitter! Hi there, cheap BDP!).
The streamer (a paid option for the 110 and 170) now also handles the likes of Spotify, Deezer, YouTube and what have you. And better news still: this AIR option is available at 1 EUR until the end of September (that might be 1 £ for the UK), instead of the normal 1000 EUR.
There's apps for iOS and Android too now.
And in the foreseeable future, a room correction protocol will be included in the DSP engine.
I think I'll arrange a demo in the near future!
