How many Devialet owners use a Turntable?
#11
I own and use my VPI Classic 1 c/w Phenix Cartridge about 40% of the time.
The phono stage on the Devialet is very good.

I have had a Roksan Radius with Nima arm and Corus cartridge for about 4 years but I am playing it less these days. This is possibly because of all the other options you have to choose from. In my case decent quality streaming (Quobuz) a large iTunes library and a decent CD/SACD player. Listening to digital has taken a distinct step up since I got the D200 and my current vinyl set up has become the poor relation I'm afraid. One major problem with the deck is a slight speed fluctuation (wow/flutter) which I never experienced with my previous AR deck. This has become quite irritating. I have around 600 LP's which I really would like to play more so I will be looking to upgrade soon as I am sure there is much better sound to be had from vinyl!

I have a Basis Ovation/Vector 3/Syncrowave and Transfiguration Axis S running directly into a D200. I've had quite a few phono stages and the Devialet for me is one of the better ones.

I play vinyl every time when listening to music. I think Devialet phono stage in my le200 is very good though not dead silent. But I treat it as an extra free of charge feature. I do not have streaming thing but play digital using external hard disk and MacBook plus iTunes. Cheapy usb cable between MacBook and le200 (AIR not working satisfactorily). Since I play vinyl more and more, I seldom play digital music these days.

I voted for 'have one ... but not using it..' As I use room correction I would need the rc filters to run in the amp to work on all inputs including the phono input. I am still waiting for Devialet to keep their promise regarding rc in the amps DSP. Then I will start using my turntable!

Using my Linn LP-12 with Linn Akurate-DSM phono stage.
Devialet phono setup is not able to handle moving coil cartridges with low output, as there is a hiss (noise) of about 12dB higher than with the Linn phono stage. No vinyl owner could accept such noisy phono stage as with Devialet, IMHO.

As posted in a separate thread, I refurbished the Thorens TD 160 Super from my father with a new cell on its SME arm and connected it to my Devialet 120. I have to confess the sound is quite astonishing, mostly bringing vivid memories from the Luxman/Cabasse era with my late father in the 80's.

i use a Acustic Raven AC with Acustic Raven 10.5 tonearm and a Koetsu signature platinum cart and then into a Hashimoto SUT and then into Devailet

when i first got my D Premiers the phono stage was superb - so much so that i could not justify the need to keep my Audio Research Ref 2 phono stage

whilst the software upgrades have added extra functionality re changing settings on the fly - the phono stage appears to be more noisy - especially when in MC stage - but the noise is reduced when via the SUT and MM stage

i would trade the original phono stage software without the bells and whistles for the current version

as for listening it is dependent - i tend to listen in batches i.e. vinyl for a period of time (weeks) then digital (AIR) and then back again - driven more by music i want to listen to than SQ
