What's Hifi: Devialet 600 review on 5-6-2019
#1
Hi guys,

VERDICT What's HiFi Devialet 600:
Stunning and bold in its design, the Phantom Reactor 600 unfortunately makes much less of an aural impact

FOR
  • Exceptional build
  • Impressive bass
  • Intuitive app
[size=undefined]
AGAINST[/size]
  • Timing is an issue
  • Lacks dynamic expression.
1. What are your opinions on sound?
2. Funny: for the first time, compliments on the software; the app. Now the sound is the problem..... Agreed?
3. One day; everyone will own a Devialet. What to do with this kind of review? Is Naim going to win from the best inventions in the world?


What should the CEO do in your opinion?

He should spend more money on What Hifi advertising space.

Devialet would then get far more favourable reviews.  Angel

They gave the Expert 110 5 stars and the ealier Phantoms 4 stars. So they don't seem to be completely off when it comes to Devialet though.
Devialet 200 (FW 7.1.3) / Magnepan 1.7i / Rel T5 / Foobar (WASAPI event 24bit) / AIR 3.0.1 public beta (best Air 3.x.x SQ by far)
