New Expert Configurator
#1
Am I late to this or mistaken, is there a new Expert Configurator on the Devialet site?

Well, that is both interesting and puzzling. I only took a peek at it and it doesn’t look different. It would be great to know why Devialet is calling it NEW. More importantly, it would be great to see release notes to see if they addressed any of the known bugs.

Anyone with any insight on this (or know who to ask)?

I might be mistaken, but think it’s been called ‘New configurator’ for some time.

It’s called new because you didn’t open an old configuration…

It’s interesting to see that with all the bitching about Devialet giving up on the Expert line there’s still people getting excited over nothing

Are we sure Devialet is giving up on the Expert line?  They are still supporting upgrades. Just updated a D-Premier to a 250 Pro a month ago.   They were easy to deal with, and the results were well worth it to me.

I recently had a little line through the display of on of my amps. It's a year out of warranty. Devialet had it picked up, sent to Paris for repair and sent back. All for free. I'd say you wouldn't do that if you didn't give a damn about your customers or how they feel about your product line.

I too, don’t think that Devialet is abandoning the expert pro line. 

It is still their flagship product and their top of the line solution. 

I know that what I will say is hard to receive by those affected by problems like the RAAT issue or bugs in the configurator, but I suspect the Expert is “suffering” from the fact that any improvement will be marginal and most certainly will not affect SQ nor the majority of its users. 

Therefore, I think that they are still caring about experts and their customers, it is just that if you have to decide where spending a given amount of software development to have the biggest impact, a mature product like the expert may not be the first one. 

My two cents,

PS
I recently had the opportunity to listen and compare in the same room:
  1. A Dione
  2. A pair of reactor II 98dB
  3. A pair of reactor I 108dB
  4. A D250 with a pair of very high end two way speakers (15k + speakers)

In my opinion, the hierarchy of quality is very well respected, but with the improvement being marginal and absolutely not in proportion with the increase in cost, and (1), (2) and (3) are really impressive and something I live with without feeling any frustration.
