SAM effect?
#1
Just set up my 130 with the athoms.

Used the GT1 configuration which was recognised by the 130.

SAM on in the menu.

Turn SAM up and down zero change in sound

Turn SAM off in menu, turn sound up and down - no change.

Am I missing something?

Is there a different config for the Devialet Athom special editions as I couldn't see it.

Same set up in the dealer and SAM made a big difference.  Huh

I the display on the amp does is say SAM above the volume?

When you boot the amp up does it display the same of the SAM profile?

Check what Soniclife suggests first. There's a GT1 HD version which needs SAM V2, which might be the equivalent to SE but don't mess too much with SAM profiles that might not be the right ones. Contact Devialet to be sure.

Just so you know why to be careful; someone here used the wrong SAM profile for his speakers and blew one up. I don't expect that to happen with using a GT1 SAM profile with GT1 SE speakers but I would still play it safe.


Good luck,

That is odd, that there is no difference when turning SAM on or off. As soniclife notes, the name you give your configuration should show up on the display on the amp. A year or so ago when I was fooling around with SAM profiles (against all good advice) I always heard a difference, even with SAM at 0%.

I can only think that there must be an error in the configuration, or in the transfer of the config to the SD card. Have you tried doing a complete wipe of the card, and emptying the trash, before reloading the config file?

I heard the Atohm GT1 with SAM and it was very, very good.
