Andy Kennard of Devialet discussing where Devialet is headed…

Last Weekend we hosted a Devialet Conference with Andy Kennard of Devialet at our Hamilton Showrooms. Andy is the General Manager of Asia-Pacific for Devialet, and was present in New Zealand to support the local importer, spend time with dealers and key customers, and visit a few of the retail outlets in the upper North Island. The Conference included an evening with Andy for dealers and customers, and a day long workshop for dealers.

Devialet is a radically different Hi-Fi product, and it is going to revolutionise the world of Hi-Fi – it will never be the same, and that transformation begins now. Andy’s presentation of where Devialet is headed, what their philosophy is, and the mind-blowing innovation behind the technical specs of their products was simply inspiring. It was a great opportunity for us, as the dealers who sell the product, to get to understand their philosophy and where they are going…

Devialet is a truly innovative company – it has completely discarded conventional theory (and engineering) for it’s devices, and instead drawn on innovations and ultra-modern design & technology to build them from the ground up. As an example there are 58 separate patents in the Devialet amplifiers, and we mean 58 patents (not trademarks). Devialet have a further 60 they are in the process of registering – this is probably more than any other Hi-Fi manufacturer has ever registered in their lifetime, and Devialet have only been around for 4 years!

One of the amazing feats Devialet have achieved is to get a Class A amplifier working with a power supply the size of an iPhone, and minimal heat output – they have done this through the use of a Class D (digital) amplifier to supplement the Class A – make no mistake, this is not a Class A/D amplifier, it’s a true Class A that draws on a Class D when it needs extra juice!

Devialet will be announcing SAM (Speaker Active Matching) this week in Munich – there will be custom configuration files available for all Devialet Amplifiers to match them to specific speaker sets (e.g. one of the first being done is the Focal Diablo Utopias) – this will make each speaker model sound even better when connected to a Devialet.

Devialet is the most awarded Hi-Fi device in history, and they achieved this in just 4 years so we can only imagine what’s next. Andy Kennard presented a galvanising and long-term message from Devialet – they are here to stay, and they are going shake the Hi-Fi world up even more in coming years – it’s quite possible everyone will own a Devialet in the future! If you have not yet been inspired by Devialet – prepare to be…
