140 and ZU's
#1
Hi
New to this forum and Devialet. 
I recently changed my Bel Canto based system (e-one separates) for a single Devialet Expert 140.
The integrated drives a pair of Zu Soul Supreme's.
The front end in either a dedicated NAS with Roon spooling digital files or a Clear Audio Concept TT with a ZU DL103 cartridge

The sound is draw dropping. I am thoroughly enjoying re-visiting my collection find new suggestion on Tidal. I've been on the hifi merry go round for years ( cant even begin to tabulate all the gear that has come and gone) but the 140 is keeper. 

Looking forward to many years together

Beautiful, simple setup. Loving the Rams shelf as well. Is the Zu the American Walnut version?

You may want to try SAM profile based on the Soul Superfly mk2. They have the same full range driver. I love the zu and devialet combo

Hello and welcome. Not many Zu owners around though not many on Devialet Chat. However,  I do read of many owners in various places. I think the Devialet & Zu combination could be quite wonderful.

But most importantly; is that a genuine Arne Jacobsen Swan chair? Color and fabric look to be period correct... and yes, I am excessively attentive to all these details Smile

W4S modified Sonos Connect & VPI HW19 mkIII into a D220 Pro CI, capably carried by Analysis Plus Oval 9 speaker cable, and thence made expansive by Lawrence Audio Violin SE speakers, and juiced by power cords and coax cables from Nordost in decorator colors. It gets friendly with power through a Shunyata Denali 2000T.

The chair is by Fritz Hansen but a recent production run... would love to get my hands on an original though. Thanks for noticing the details

And the combination with ZU is fantastic. I took a bvit of a gamble having never heard the combination in before but it seemed to work out well. I had an earlier pair of Druids with a First Watt amp which i didn't like but this particular combination just works

And picking out the Dieter Rams shelves. Interesting how Devialet attracts people with an eye for great design

How’s the clear audio TT sound with your 140? Any popping noise that some report?
