Would be nice if that prediction is true for JANUARY, or even Q1, not 2019 as a whole.
So I predict (or wish ?)

1/ Roon RAAT for CI integrated experts
2/ Stereo for Phantom reactors
3/ Devialet will expose a set of API to interact with experts and configurator would be integrated in a new remote app or in "partners" app like roon
4/ New CEO will create a new DaaS (Devialet as a Service) team to work on Devialet integration like with Sky and Free
Roon ROCK - Etalon Isolator - 220 Pro - Penaudio Sara S
Crystal Cable Reference Speaker - Audioquest Vodka Ethernet - Crystal Cable Micro Power
Paris - France
What would be useful:
1. New remote App
2. New remote with display (feedback)

Germany / Bavaria
No idea about Phantom, but for Expert Pro CI...

1. Wireless configurator (no SD card)
2. New app that works
3. Room correction by convolution settings in configurator

Technics 1210 (AudioMods arm, AT-150MLX, Mike New bearing + platter, crystal mat, Isonoe feet, external DC PSU) Stockholm, Sweden

To stimulate turnover:

1. Car hifi. Perhaps deals with car-manufacturers.

2. Connecting Expert with Phantom and so creating a surround solution.

3. Devialet amplifiers into speakers-(manufacturers)

That's not necessarily a bad thing. The CI board should keep us busy with upgrades for years.

But I didn’tmean This is limited to the non pro experts. Confused

To add to your list...

Would love to see #2 come to fruition. It’s a shame to have this lovely remote but have to use the iPhone app because it shows the volume level. To have this on the physical remote should be doable.

Native iPad remote app instead of one made for the iPhone. Larger screen would facilitate more direct input options and a overall better interface. 

3rd, the configuration could use a revamping. It’s awkward once in th configuration to get back to and save directly to your saved configurations.
- I predict a change in CEO. Current CEO will step down, no explanations given.

- The announcement of a new Expert "Core Team". No explanation given why previous Expert "Core Team" didn't do anything in over a year.

- new Phantom. A bit more square looking. No support for it whatsoever.

- a very large update hinted by the end of year, with no information if it will be about Expert, Phantom or entirely new line. There will be no more mentions about these hints in the future.
