Devialet at RMAF 2014
#1

[Image: Focal%20Devialet.jpg]

From http://www.stereophile.com/content/rmaf-...s-continue

"Focal was showing its more upscale Utopia range of speakers in several upstairs rooms, but in a ground floor suite it demonstrated its new Aria 926s, driven by a Devialet 400 amplifier. The latter, at $17,495, appeared to be a bit of overkill for a $3299/pair of speakers. The latter's bigger sister, the Aria 936, was just reviewed in our November 2014 issue. But enough about speakers and amps; is that fellow ogling that cool IKEA cabinet or the Devialet?"

He's probably noticed the mirror finish on the Devialet, and thinking to himself, my goodness, I appear to have a goaty beard....

What I like about this is that as far as I know (correct me if I'm wrong) this is the first time that a speaker manufacturer / importer uses Devialet to drive their speakers at a show. So far it has been Devialet themselves showing with different speakers.

Last year, Waterfall Audio (french speaker manufacturer) used a Devialet 170 to drive their speakers in the french audio show in Paris !

Raidho have used Devialets in the past at shows.
I am Devialetless!  Perhaps temporary?

Ever since SAM came out I've been wondering whether speaker manufacturers would start using Devialet to make their speakers sound 'better than they actually are' at shows.

Pretty impressive that Focal used Devialet rather than their subsidiary brand Naim.
