Devialet 200 Integrated Amplifier/DAC

‘Even under the unforgiving microscope of the Magico Q7s, the pair of Devialet 200 Integrated Amplifier/DAC  sounded like much, much, more expensive electronics’ – Robert Harley, The Absolute Sound

Testimonials (on all Devialet products)

“The Devialet 200 Integrated Amplifier/DAC was shocking in some respects – the clarity, transparency, dynamic impact, and bass authority were simply sensational for any amplifier, never mind an amplifier of the 200’s size and price. This quality of bass and dynamic agility in an under-$10k integrated amplifier is remarkable. The Devialet 200’s other salient quality was an open, transparent and dimensional rendering …the ability to conjure the illusion of instruments in space, each surrounded by a halo of air, the 200 was in the territory of expensive separates…

Even under the unforgiving microscope of the Magico Q7s, the pair of Devialets sounded like much, much, more expensive electronics…

The Devialet 200/400 is, by a wide margin, the most advanced, flexible, and technically sophisticated audio product I’ve reviewed.”
– Robert Harley, The Absolute Sound, February 2015

“The bottom line: The Devialet 120 — with its paltry 120Wpc into 6 ohms and its price of $6495 — was a great match for the Magico Q7s, whose cost matches their size: $185,000/pair… Don’t go near one of these things without being prepared to buy it. It’ll ruin you for anything else.”

Fantastic sound and drop dead gorgeous casework [on the Devialet 120]. Devialet’s new SAM (Speaker Active Matching) technology, in a nutshell, provides a more synergistic coupling between amplifier and loudspeaker, thanks to their engineers harnessing more power of the on board DSPs.”
– Jeff Dorgay, Tone Audio, August, 2014

“The Devialet 120 is a state-of-the-art piece of hardware, an inspired design marked by deep originality and a thorough understanding of how humans actually interact with modern technology. Devialet’s daring vision is as unorthodox as it is innovative. Most important, within its power limitations, its sound quality is peerless. That it can be had for $6495 is almost unbelievable — and for that reason, it is the single most impressive audio product I’ve ever spent time with.”
– Hans Wetzel, soundstagenetwork.com

“If it were a car, the Devialet would be a Porsche Boxster S—not quite a 911 GT3, Ferrari or Aston, but so damn close that you won’t want to bother coming up with all that extra cash.One listen is all it takes to see why the Devialet Ensemble system is, by far, our favorite system going—and the component I’ve chosen for my home audio system.”
– Jeff Dorgay, Tone Audio, Issue 67

“There is a beautiful clarity to music reproduced through the Devialet that allows one to focus on its composition. Its constituent elements. There’s also an uncanny grip on dynamic flow, which amounts to an effortless natural quality to even the most challenging music… delivers a hugely compelling sound picture as finely detailed as you’re likely to hear while also providing rich musical warmth all in a package that’s very easy to love.”

Overview

The audiophile’s favorite model, for its professional digital and analogue inputs/outputs, its power and its wealth of customizable options and settings. In addition to 400 W mono-block customization, the Devialet 200 also represents a first step for those seeking to eventually upgrade to a dual-mono system.

Advanced Phono Stage

Thanks to a built-in, trendsetting phono stage, the analog signal’s lossless digitalization allows you to configure and adapt the Devialet 200 precisely to your turntable’s cartridge and generate superlative sound quality. What’s more, the online sound configuration utility lets you choose the cartridge type (MM/MC) and set the sampling rate and the RIAA curb for customized adjustment of your phono pre-amplification.  That’s the power of sound in yourhands.  

Phono stage parameters:

Cartridge type – Channels – Max level – Loading – Startup RIAA curve – Balance – Sampling rate

Inputs or outputs — it’s all up to you

Every Devialet 200 input is configurable, meaning an unlimited amount of settings at your disposal.  Be they analog inputs, digital inputs or outputs of either kind, your Devialet adapts to your needs, whether you’re thinking minor tweaks or a complete system overhaul.

Input configuration possibilities for the Devialet 200:

  • Advance phono (MM/MC) x2
  • Line x2
  • Digital-in x4
  • Analog-out mono (subwoofer)
  • Pre-out stereo
  • Digital-out for digital vinyl

Devialet AIR Universal Streamer

Devialet’s AIR Universal Streamer allows you to wirelessly access all contents stored or streamed from any computer, in exceptionally high quality.

With the Devialet 200, you can click your favorite music player (iTunes, Foobar) or online service (Spotify, Deezer, Qobuz) and listen to your music at up to 192 khz/24-bits!

The best performances ever recorded

Shortest signal path in the world (less than 4 inches between the DAC and the speakers output connectors): lossless by design.
Unequalled Signal/Noise ratio (> 130 dB): abyssal silence, emotional power, the music emerges from nothingness.
Harmonic distortion barely measurable (0,001%): absolute fidelity of instrumental timbres and sonorities.
Intermodulation distortion equally barely measurable (0,001%): seizing realism of soundstage (separation and placing of instruments).
Thermal distortion non measurable: very natural fast variations of dynamics (impacts, resonances).
0,001% THD+noise (harmonic distortion) at full power

0,001 Ω Output impedance

0,001% Intermodulation – SMPTE IMD

130 dB Signal-to-Noise Ratio

From stereo to dual mono

On its own, the Devialet 200 is an exceptional stereo system. Imagine operating several at once! You may configure the Devialet 200 as a 400 W mono-block in a dual mono set-up that multiplies your system’s performance by 4. You may also opt for a quad-mono configuration of your Devialet system, or even connect up to 8 devices together for extreme home cinema systems or active multi-amplification.
