List Your Speakers and Devialet Model Here
Shahinian Compass + Devialet 220 Pro.

Very surprised to find a SAM profile available for these speakers.

Now D400 + Kef Blade 2.

A worthwhile upgrade, but clear diminishing returns.  The first thing that's noticeable as expected is the extra power.  Lower -db setting for the same loudness.  I wouldn't use this as my primary reason for the upgrade unless you listen at very high volumes most of the time.  The second thing I noticed is a little more finesse in rendering of higher frequency instruments at low listening levels.  This I found made the upgrade worth it alone and to me supports the advertised benefits of lower noise/distortion (if that's is the reason).  I did not find much audible difference in the bass department despite each Blade 2 having four 6" woofers and logic suggesting there may be a benefit from extra power.  Maybe this is the case at loud volumes but I prefer to save my hearing for later years.  I didn't find much of a change in the soundstage.  Overall a subtle, but noticeable upgrade.  As this hobby goes, the last few % of improvement are the most expensive...

Note: I only had a D200 for about two weeks before I received the slave unit.  I have maybe 40 hours of total listening time on the D200 and 10 on the D400.  I simply may not have had enough time to spot more differences that others may have noticed or my Blade 2's were already pretty happy.

Definately some improvements, but didn t worth the investment for me!

Great that you are going for the W-B. I have not heard the Vertex myself, but am more than happy with my W-B ACT speakers, so you should have hours of listening pleasure from them  Smile. Now just sit back and enjoy the music  Big Grin.

Thanks! In my room (and the combination with Devialet and Crytal Cable) the sound is magic. Incredible soundstage, deep tight and light bas, and the level of detail is like i never heard. Combination from heaven for me
