Hello and welcome to a new video!
This time we have one of the best integrated amplifiers out there, Devialet Expert 220 Pro!
When I first saw this amplifier in showroom at www.avstore.ro and how thin, lightweight and small is comparing to other amplifiers (including my 19 kg BC Acoustique EX-332D) I was very skeptical to be honest.
And then I hit the play button and was shocked on how much power and control this baby amp can deliver driving some very demanding speakers (Audio Physic Codex)!
Hearing it more and more made me wanted to hear it more and more, it's like a drug in a good way; any genre of music, any speaker at any level this amp will sound pitch perfect!
The sound stage is huuuge and detailed, the imaging perfect and the dynamic and bass control left me breathless!
It's a very fast sounding amplifier and paired with good speakers music will never sound the same.
A lot of engineering was devolved in order to obtain such a complete package in a small factor; Everything inside the aluminum chassis is top quality, from the preamplifier stage, to the DAC, to the amplifier stage.
With a gigantic damping factor of 8000 it's grabbing the bass drivers of any speaker and holding them tighter than a hungry anaconda offering you the best control money can buy.
Tested with Audio Physic Codex, Elac FS 509 VX-JET, Monitor Audio Gold 300, Jbl Studio 530, Focal Profile 908 and many other, was obtaining the same result over and over again: perfect sound!
The best part of this amplifier, excepting the other best part (the amazing sound) it's the online configurator that will allow you to match your speakers in SAM (Speaker Active Matching), modify the inputs and outputs to best suit your needs; and let's be honest...you don't find every day a integrated amplifier with the ability to low pas the sub and high pass the speakers giving you the best balance for you system.
And for the turntable enthusiasts on board you will find the "worlds best phono stage" and lots of tweaking the impedance's to get the best from your vinyls!
Good to mention that there is a beta version of the latest upgrade that will allow airplay, dlna, Spotify Connect and with the Infinty Core platform future upgrades and streaming capability should be limitless.
Also if you ever need more power you can always add a second unit and transform it to Expert 440 PRO monoblocks!
All those combined made me want this amplifier sooo bad; it's in my top position for a next upgrade; if you have any other suggestions that I should take into consideration please let me know!.
Pros, - a great overall performer that offers superior dynamics, high resolutions and bass control like no other;
- maximum versatility that you can configure in the online app;
- multiple connections that will cover all your needs;
- luxurious design that screams hi-end.
Cons, - pricey at around 8000 euros (but performance comes with a cost);
- the small display it's almost impossible to see across the room (a duplicate display on the remote is a must considering the price-point)
