Devialet Premium dealers poll.
#1
I think it would not be a bad idea to start a poll, rating the best/worst Devialet dealers around UK and Europe. This will be highly beneficial for people who are buying their first Devialet product. I have read mostly positive purchase experiences on this forum, but there are always exceptions to the norm. I could start one, but I would first like to get the feedback from the community. Thanks

Why not just solicit feedback on dealers that folks have had positive experiences with and would recommend?

I second baddog's idea - it would make for a more interesting thread and should reduce the tendency to descend into mud-slinging.

I will start. Trimira in Brisbane. Tristan, the owner is a really relaxed guy. He doesn't sell anything. He just lets you buy, if you get what I mean. He has a nice range of equipment and he tries to keep things simple. It's about the enjoyment of music, not about the accumulation of toys, and he understands that.

I have no hesitation whatsoever in promoting Hi Fi Lounge. I have found Paul very helpful and enthusiastic about all things hi fi. Paul is incredibly laid back and there is no sales pressure. I have dealt with this business since it's inception and seen it go from strength to strength. I have no personal connection with Paul, I simply buy my equipment from him.
Cheers,
Bill.

Hello

I really like the Imacustica guys in Portugal. Excellent service and valuable advices. No buying pressure and you can compare lots of different gear.

In the US... Craig Shumer/Theatermax.    If you don't have a Devialet dealer nearby (I don't), Craig @ Theatermax has been great to work with.  Good communicator via email and phone and quick followup & shipping.

I second that.
Paul is a legend!

It's good to see that there are good dealers who aren't just based in Oxford, which historically is an impression this forum can give.

With that said, I've been very happy with Oxford audio consultants, very relaxing and easy to deal with.

Another vote for Oxford Audio Consultants from me. Apart from being exceptionally easy people to get along with, and to buy from, I really appreciate the imagination and effort they put in to arrange events. For me that has been the main way I've been able to meet some of the other denizens of the forum face to face, which has been a real pleasure.

If I'm allowed a second bite at the cherry, let me mention John Roberts at Midland Audio Exchange (Belbroughton, Worcestershire). I've known John on and off for twenty years or so - he sold me my first Sonus fabers (Minimas) and more recently my first Devialet (a 170, as it was at the time). A thoroughly decent chap.
