No! Asked them today!


Quote:Thanks for your message. We can't already say what the feature will be with the new streaming board as we are still working to modelize it and have only on hand a prototype version of the streaming board. 
With the upgrade your mother board will be able to run with the sreaming board, that won't be the case with the none-pro version.
In terms of timeline, upgrade won't be a ponctual program, we will have the possibility to make the upgrade later in 2017, but conditions will be different concerning the streaming board.

Do you all have so (too) much money, ordering an upgrade for thousend of bugs without listening to the new system? No one would buy a new Amp without any audition at home. Not at all. Does no one care about the fact, that not even Devialet knows, what ´future-ready´ means (OS card).

An absolutely mistery to me...

Pretty sure most people don't care a jot about the "streaming card" most are more interested in the improved sound quality they expect from the upgrades available now. I myself look on the streaming card part as an unnecessary evil which I may or may not fit. If it causes problems I won't, if it causes no problems or enhances I will.

I am not sure if I would want to try to speak for 'most people', but the above does pretty much sum up how I feel about the streamer board.  The thing that matters to me is the sound quality of the Pro.  I listened to a Pro and found a surprisingly big jump in sound quality performance, that was good enough for me.  If the streamer board turns out to be good, this will be a bonus, however I suspect that mine will simply stay in it's box and never be fitted.  Time will tell.

I couldn't agree more!

So as a few have already listened to new pro model / compared sound quality, how does it differ?

I was actually planning to upgrade from my Mac mini to a streamer so I'm looking forward to trying the Devialet streamer first. It would be great if it's really good. Just to have the two amps, speakers and a network cable would be the ultimate as far as I'm concerned.
