So far I prefer it in every aspect. I find words are easier to understand , bass it tighter and deeper. I don't need to increase the volume anymore

I'm writing as I listen and It's harder for me to stop focusing on the music but it's so subjective

I didn't listen to large orchestra or my turntable yet but I'll get there sooner than later.

Btw what part of the FW effect the sound ?
Is it one specific file ? Is it to do with the power management ? Any thoughts ?

One problem though , amp started to shut down for splits of seconds. So far it happens several times

Any suggestions ?

Glad to hear you love the sound quality of 7.1.3!

No clue on your FW questions though, sorry.

Are you using AIR wifi? I encounter gaps when using wifi.
Went back to ethernet and didn't get any gaps anymore.
I you use AIR, make sure to use either the 3.0.1 beta or 3.0.2 RC from AIR.
(I prefer the beta). 2.x.x versions are very buggy.

I suggest for all those who haven't tried FW 7.1.3 to hear it first before forking thousands of dollars upgrading to the Pro version. You maybe in for quite a "nice surprise"! Money saved can be spent on a new cartridge, better cables or more records. Think hard before you take the plunge. Based on my humble opinion, the improvement is subtle and not worth the asking price. But, that's just me! As always, listen first and do whatever makes you happy. Happy Holidays!

I'll re install the FW

Can someone point me to the 3.0.1 beta for OSX? I installed the RC, but I want to go back, but can not find the beta.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think they skipped one version. So there only was a 3.0.1 version for Windows.

Hold down the tone button on the remote for a couple of seconds, then press the source button a couple of times until you get to the screen which says "Last Fault", there you will see, yes, you've guessed it: the last fault detected. If you have a fault, raise a ticket with Devialet and please post the error code. You don't say what model you have.  Obviously, if you have a dual mono version (200, 220,400,440 etc.) don't forget to look at the data from both of the amps.

I was thinking that it might be useful for members if we had some sort of data base for error codes, although these sort of errors don't crop up in many posts. What do you think?
