140 & 210 pro?!

I guess one mans drawback is another's 'getting more boxes for their money'. It again opens up the 'which is better, more power or dual mono' which seems even Devialet say themselves is the dual mono. I prefer the one box but only because its wall mounted and two would look a bit weird in my lounge and need a radical placement rethink (or just shove one under the sofa or something I suppose).

Approx GBP price conversions from the initial site work out at:

140 £4,200
210 £8,300
220 £6,700
250 £12,500
440 £12,000
1000 £22,500

So actually the 210 might be good value, but its not really obvious, its a more confusing choice IMO. As always the 250 looks the least value unless you definitely plan to go to a 1000, but it was my best bet at the time.

Certainly do.

But we know a 220 can handle going up to a 440 in dual mono. The 130/140 case is the same as the 220, so unless the components are different/poorer, then you'd assume they could easily go from 140 to 280 in dual mono in that chassis. There has been plenty of discussion about the 250 being able to go to 1000 because of the more advanced case/heatsink etc, so that's a different scenario. But I'm sure all will become clear soon enough. Doesn't affect me, am more curious as to their logic since it couldn't be more confusing - especially for anyone considering the brand for the first time.

Selfishly all I really hope is they work out getting the power of the 250 up!
As I understand it the current range works as follows.
130 voltage limited
220 thermal limited
250 voltage limited
440 thermal limited
1000 voltage limited

It's possible the power supply is a factor in the 130 and 440.

It seems the voltage is fixed by the ADH and cannot be adjusted upwards by firmware. The thermal limits can be improved by efficiency gains in software, or that's how it was explained before when the 170 went up. Who knows if that's going to be possible ever again.

My observe - but I could be wrong!

The ADH architecture in the models 130 / 140 / 210 are identical and different to 220, 440, 250 and 1000.

That was the same by the former EXPERTS

110 to 200/400/800

So the 130 is likely to firmware upgrade to the 140?

It seems so, have a look to some dealer sites. They have changed the denotation in 140 not the text below you can still read 130 Pro
