Devialet Land At HiFi Lounge!

Hi All,

I am really pleased to announce that we have now got our Devialet demo models at HiFi Lounge, this is a brand that I have been following with some interest for some time now, it is very rare for a new company to launch in hifi and to make such a splash with nothing but positive comments across the board, even from the most respected journalists who have heard it all before, such as the comment below -

Devialet’s amplifier is the most extraordinary product I have reviewed for Stereophile. Superb sound quality, future-proof design, everything you need in one box - it is the epitome of what a high-end audio product should be. Wow! - John Atkinson in Stereophile Magazine

Devialet are a French company formed in 2007 with its first product the D-Premier launched to amazing critical acclaim in 2009, the range was then expanded to 4 products in 2013. I think it is fair to say that there is nothing like a Devialet, for one it looks stunning, but more importantly it has the performance to back those looks up. At its heart it is a hybrid amplifier section, the first of its kind mixing Class A to give that musical sound but driven by Class D known for power and a compact size. The range also have phono stages built in, a streamer, a top class DAC that converts all sources to 24/192, even vinyl, all configured online and saved to an SD card. Every model sounds exactly the same it is just a matter of choosing the spec for you and matching the power to your speakers. Is the Devialet the ‘Future Of HiFi?’ as described by many, why not pop into HFL to find out for yourself.

As ever please find a few pictures below, now I’m off to figure out how it actually all works and more importantly how it sounds. If you’d like to explore the Devialet range in more detail please feel free to come in for a listen, we have the 110, 170 and 240 on demo, please follow the link to the listings on our website for more info -
