Devialet + Dynaudio
#1
Hi all,

It's time to introduce my combined stereo / Hi-Fi + surround / HT system.

Stereo amp: Devialet Expert 440 Pro
AVR: Anthem MRX 720
Amp for center channel: Parasound Halo A21 (bridged)
Stereo speakers: Dynaudio Contour 60
Center speakerDynaudio Excite X28 Center
Surround speakersDynaudio Emit M20
Subwoofers: 2x SVS SB16-Ultra
Source: PC / UPnP
TV: LG OLED65C7V


Stereo / Hi-Fi system: Devialet + Dynaudio Contour 60 + 2x SVS SB16-Ultra
For surround / HT system, Devialet is in bypass mode, of course.

For subwoofer integration, high-pass filter on Devialet is used for C60's + low-pass for subs both on Devialet and subs (cascade filter). PEQs (3 per sub) on subs are adjusted using measurements with XTZ Room Analyzer. Subs are also connected to Anthem AVR for surround / LFE. 

Target FR curve is some kind of custom House / Harman curve.

That Anthem MRX 720 is a very nice unit. It's ARC room correction is superb. Do you route your stereo signal through the Anthem onto the Devialet amps (I don't believe the Devialet amps have room correction?). I don't own Devialet amps, but do own a pair of Phantom Reactors). Cheers.

Other than manual PEQs on subs which are mandatory, I don't use room correction for stereo. I've tried several different solutions including ARC and Dirac and I find them all "destructive" for Hi-Fi music. They all kill that ultimate quality in Hi-Fi - resolution, details, dynamics, transparency...

For surround, I use ARC and it's great.

Wow, those are some serious subs. They bring quite a bit to stereo sound with your C60s?

They don't bring more bass - they bring tighter, deeper and more controlled bass.

Interesting... first I've heard of ARC being destructive to stereo.

What is that wall/ceiling between speakers? Some acoustics? That looks good.

Love the room and system. I was using Dynaudio Contour 1.3SEs when I got my Devialet and they were a great combination.

Great room. Love that floating wall/ceiling. As @Waiski says, is it acoustic?
