Major announcement!
Congrats and good luck.

Congratulations Guillaume. I'm sure you will be a good source of information about the products in conjunction with Devialet products too so that's a win for us at this forum.

Just out of interest (and I understand if you don't want to answer this) Is this going to be a complete career change or a job on the side. The reason I ask is that I can only imagine you'll be picking up more brands if things go well.

Best wishes!

Best of luck with the Shunyata Distribution Company.
You deserve to succeed as your passion for all things hi-fi is obvious.

Your knowledge and experience of all things Devialet gives added weight to the Shunyata advice and recommendations that I hope will be forthcoming.

I've found Shunyata to be staffed by some of the more knowledgable and honest people in this industry (to the best of my minuscule knowledge). I'm glad they have a good guy as UK distributor. I hope it works well for all. The Shunyata crew makes good contributions to forums. They are clear about their business yet seem to make honest recommendations. I see no reason why GuillaumeB can't do that same here.

Now, GuillaumeB, will you please finally try out the cheaper cables and tell me how they sound in comparison to Shunyata Sigmas in your Devialet setup? We've been waiting to hear about that for far too long. Wink
Congratulations Guillaume, that's great news.

I've got some big news, well for me at least, and I thought it important that I share this with the rest of the forum for reasons which will become very clear in a few seconds....  Big Grin

I have just become the official distributor for Shunyata Research in the UK! Some of you may recall that a few months ago I got my hands on a number of their products and was literally blown away by their performance. I initially approached another distributor I know well about taking them on but he wasn't able to for a number of reasons. It just seemed crazy to me that there wasn't a UK distributor. To cut a very long story short I decided to take a huge leap into the unknown and give it a go myself! After months of discussions and now just back from a trip to Seattle I am now proud to announce that I have formed a new company: The Shunyata Distribution Company which will soon start trading pending VAT registration and one or two other formalities. I know, I'm crazy, but sometimes these opportunities come up in life and you just have to go for it. It's always been my dream to work in hi-fi.

Before anyone freaks out I have no intention of using the forum to blatantly promote Shunyata. Whilst dealers and manufacturers are welcome on the forum we have always taken quite a hard line against blatant product advertising and this is not about to change! No way!

Having said that I do not intend to leave the forum; I am still a Devialet owner and this place very much feels like home. It's amazing to think that it was almost 2.5 years ago when I started PM'ing members of Hifi Wigwam with an idea of creating a dedicated Devialet forum. We now have over 2600 members and are one of the busiest hi-fi forums on the internet averaging just under 60 posts a day! Anyway I digress... the point is Devialet Chat means a lot to me and I am not about to compromise my integrity because of my arrangement with Shunyata.

So if everyone is OK with this I propose that nothing changes. I'll keep my business activities low-key and won't discuss products unless anyone specifically asks about them. I will update my signature shortly and restrict any discussion about Shunyata to the Shunyata thread. Smile In short I promise to abide by the very forum rules I helped to install.  


Here's wishing you good luck with your new venture, Guillaume. I hope everything goes smoothly!
