I am only hanging on by my nails to the entry level of audiophilia, so no dual mono for me.  Most components are near entry level in their classes, but entry nonetheless!

Welcome to the forum.

I also have the 220 CI with the B&W 804. I found loading the SAM profile for the speakers is worth doing, if you have not already done it.

Thanks, Will. Yes, I have the SAM profile loaded. What % do you set it at?  I’m at 75% though I can’t profess to tell the difference with 100%!  Also, the 220 and 804 D3 combination is Devialet’s refererence presentation in their New York SoHo store.
I just leave it at 100%  I haven’t bothered trying different settings.  

My combination was recommended by my local HiFi store.  Initially (due to budget constraints) I went with what was then the 120 with my current speakers, but I took advantage of the Devialet upgrade program.  The upgrade to 220 was, as you might expect, very noticeable.  Overall, I am very happy with my current set up - now that a range of problems with streaming have been resolved.

My first step on the devialet ladder:-
Acoustic Energy Reference 1 (with SAM on)>TWL American >Devialet 140 Pro

Waiting to hear if anyone has gone dual mono with the 140s...

Yep, my initial budget constraints also led me to buy a discounted 120 demo unit, which I could consequently upgraded to the 220 CI.

That’s always been the best way to get onto the Devialet ladder, IMHO.
