Devialet predictions for 2019 (The 2019 Devialet Almanac)
#31
We are now well into January, so it should really be time to close the window for 2019 predictions. In case anyone does have any last minute predictions, I think we can allow another week, but by this time next weekend that will be it, prediction window closed.

For the first time ever, we do have a massive number of posters (well, 12) who have come up with two or three reasonably clear and sensible predictions. I shall set up a league table.

One note to @streamy and @K4680 - you have made only two predictions, which severely limits your chances of gaining the huge kudos of winning this one, if you would like to add a third prediction, you have a week to go.

OK, my top 3 wishlist items:

1) RAAT
2) onboard configurator to replace online configurator
3) improved communication from Devialet

My prediction is that we won't see any of these until the 2nd half of the year (and one or two perhaps not at all)

My prediction :

1. Devialet put even more efforts to shrunk the Reactor but nothing happens in year 2019 ( a bit off topic : they only make it happen and launch it, mono at first, in 3Q of year 2020);

2. online configurator does not happen in year 2019 ( off topic again : or even in 2020. They may not like this idea themselves);

3. a (to us) very small update on the Devialet app at 3Q 2019 which makes it look even more like a stone age product.

As only 3 predictions are allowed, the following is a guess not a prediction (Devialet Expert Special Team, short form DEST, would go to Oxford Audio to meet Devialet users in 3Q year 2019).

Agreed with that, no. 3 may be tough.

If I may add one

4) A new optional remote with a display on the top of the volume knob.  I cringe at how much Devialet would charge for that.  Optionally perhaps one can send the remote back to them for a gut replacement like what they do for the main unit?

My Predictions:

Q1: Devialet announces that after an extensive testing phase, Roon RAAT has been found not to meet Devialet's high quality standards. Therefore, the implementation of RAAT has been abandoned.

Q2: Some minor optimizations that are on almost nobody’s wish list. At the same time, Devialet explains that the high potential of the Expert series has now been fully exploited. Therefore, this was the last update.

Q3: Devialet launches the "Supreme" series, the ultimate high-end amplifier with Superior ADH, reliable streaming of best quality from all sources, remote control with display, complex room correction, completely configurable via Wifi/Ethernet.

I hope to lose the competition.

Thanks for the late entry predictions. I have set up a separate document listing everyone's predictions and will post a quarterly league table, I suspect the excitement surrounding this will be immense.

Last weekend I mentioned that the prediction window would remain open for one more week, so it should be no surprise that time is now up. In the unlikely event that someone is desperate to make a last minute contribution, you have until COB Sunday 27th January, then that is officially it.

I can sign off by saying that I will be working feverishly on the league table and it will be published soon. (Early April, after Q1 has drifted past us through the arrow of time....)
