Devialet predictions for 2016 (The Devialet Almanac 2016)
#11
- No upgrade to Air. Instead...
- Dialog for Expert either as a stand-alone (paid) upgrade or as part of...
- a larger upgrade to the 400s/800s that will bring some of the benefits (at the moment, presumed benefits only...) of the 900s to the little people. I believe some sort of paid (and time-limited) upgrade to the expert range is almost inevitable this coming year, simply because it has been a while since the last one. It must be time once again to milk the franchise (sorry, make good on the promise that your d-premier will never be obsolete).
- Phantoms in lots of different colours, at a price - it's marketed as a lifestyle product, after all.

Hope to have a upgraded Devialet Remote which has a digital display replicating the same display on the Devialet amplifier at the centre of the knob. (i heard they are working on something)
Or Devialet Remote Application (Phone/ iPad) with similar control of the physical Remote Control.

I dont see any new products just yet, development takes such a long time and even longer with such a small company like Devialet. In fact I hope they don't waste their time on new products as the ones they have will sell way more if they implemented a few more features that helped elevate them further

if all they add is UPnP or an app i will be happy enough

I expect Devialet to introduce full integration of Air into streaming services such as Tidal, Qobuz etc.
Upgrade of the Devialet app to include full remote functionalities.
Further integration into Apple product lines such as Devialet app for Apple TV to take advantage of new Apple music offerings in Hires to be introduced in 2016.

Hi,

AirPlay for Phantom is what is missing. This needs to be addressed asap.
Spark no substitute at all for Airplay.
So I guess Airplay will be the next logical step in terms of development for phantoms.
And I am talking about a native solution without additional hardware.

Cheers, Jens.

I predict and also hope a revised remote for Phantom that will have a touch LCD display for track control and info will be released this year. It seems the current remote was a rush job. I have high confidence Devialet will do better with a v2 effort.

A choice for Dialog/Phantom/Spark is a choice for their soundproduction, the rest...keep wishing and hoping...!

RoonReady.

I know they've no intention of doing it, but I'm putting it just to make myself feel better.

2016 will be the year most other high-end manufacturers add RoonReady to their devices (Bryston streamers pictured with the logo at CES this week for example), and so will all end up with a more advanced 'Air' type system that actually works - leaving Devialet looking a bit silly.

That's my only prediction. I'd love to see 2016 be the year Devialet focus on customers, fixes, and customer requested features, but.....

Well, at least Qobuz output via Air Ethernet works flawlessly from my Mac to th D200 and sound is great.  I just had to select audio output to Devialet Air in the Qobuz app on the Mac. I am just missing the same on wireless devices such as the iPad as I can only stream via Airplay from there. Airplay requires another tool such as Apple TV which is of course not perfect.
