RE: Holy mackerel! Devialet are trickling down!

I was thinking something more along the lines of..... Marantz

Actually far less complex than you might think. It's the latest all digital consoles that leave me bemused...... :doh:

RE: Holy mackerel! Devialet are trickling down!

Hi, some people have said that Devialet does not do well when impedance level drops below 4 ohms. How do I test that? I am auditioning them with Logans probably this weekend, so while playing a song, how do I test a drop in the impedance

RE: Holy mackerel! Devialet are trickling down!

Finally pulled the trigger. A Devialet 110 it is! I just ordered one, and it should arrive in the shop in one to two weeks.

Speaker hunt coming up (standmounters, decent bass, close to front wall)! The PMC Twenty.22 and the Neat Momentum 3i are already on the menu. My dealer promised to try and get a pair of Audio Note AN-Js too, but those seem very hard to find, here in the Low Countries.

I'll then have to visit some more dealers for other options (SF, Vivid V1w, Guru QM10, Diapason Adamantes are on my list).

All other speaker suggestions very welcome; that goes without saying!

You (or Matt) should now start a Devialet Thread, so prospective buyers can see how you both get on with speaker matching and get general feedback..

As well as Audio Note, check out JM Reynaud speakers as well.

Excellent move, Doc!

What have you heard the Dev 110 with so far? Some Harbeth M30.1s, I seem to recall. Anything else?

I couldn't find a dealer anywhere near yet, but being French speakers, they should be available in Brussels or Wallonia. Some more homework to be done. Would they be comfortable close to the wall? If I recall correctly, they have no rear ports but transmission lines and they're rather easy to drive, so that looks like a good start.

I don't know how seriously you'd take my suggestion but you should check out JBL CBT 100LA-1 speakers. I know those are speakers aimed at pro market but they are more hi-fi than most (if not all) typical suspects in hi-fi world. check out pdf files; detailed spec sheet and CBT tech note for more info why you should even bother to look in this direction.

cons? you'll need a sub (or even better a pair) to fill in output gap below 100Hz.

pros? just check freq response graphs and polar pattern graphs in spec sheet pdf (note little or no side lobes in broad setting over entire freq spectrum and how little freq response changes off axis in horizontal axis - meaning veeeeeery wide sweet spot ) and then read about how CBT technology is better than essentially everything else that's available ATM. the biggest strength of a CBT array is the fact that you get very even frequency response in room regardless where you'd take measurements and the freq response essentially don't change with position where you take measurements. that means no DSP processing whatsoever! besides DSP will only improve measurements in one measured position.

the speakers themselves are rather inobtusive 10cm wide and 15 cm deep but since they are a line array they are 100cm long. another advantage is they should be wall-mounted for optimum performance. and they are easy to drive true 8 Ohm load. plus they are quite sensitive - 90dB in the broad music mode (the one that should be used in an apartment).

I'm so excited with this CBT technology that I'll be planning to try those speakers myself. I just need to confirm with JBL that they can be used in room with no compromise in performance (they are suggested also for conference rooms so I suppose a normal room should be OK as well, but that is just my guess). if you check the net for CBT you'll definitely find another speaker - CBT36, which is definitely to be used in room. but the necessity for it to be mated with a digital xover (like DEQX HDP-4, Ground Sound DCN28 or Behringer DCX2496) and a pair of power amps (no passive version available) makes the whole project a bit too bulky to accomplish.

If you haven't seen it, there is some good insight on Audio Note and JM Reynaud here: http://www.amherstaudio.com/

Cheers, Matt!

I heard the D Premier with Harbeth (M30.1 and - mostly - Compact 7) and Devore (Gibbon 3XL), but those combos didn't sound convincing. I somehow blame the amp (faulty settings?) here. That's why I chose another dealer, where I could hear the 110 too. The 110 was demoed with the B&W PM1 (nice!) and the Monitor Audio PL-100 (more refined - nicer!).

So once I have my 110, I might go back to hear the M30.1 -- I really liked them with the LFD amp earlier on.
