Hi guys,

if you have been listen to Devialet Expert PRO 1000 and other HIGH END amps int he similar price range, can you please share you opinion?

- What do you think about the Sound quality of Devialet Expert 1000 PRO for its price?
- Do you think it is performance in the High End amp category?
- How it performs when compare to other High End amplifier like  Mcintosh, MBL, TAD, Absolare, VS etcs?
- Any weekness you found in its sound performance? 
- Any better deal than it for its price range?

Thanks for your comments!!!
I heard this amp paired with Magnepans at a local dealer. It sounded similar to every other class D amp I've heard in that it was somewhat cold and clinical (don't know how else to describe it). If you like other class D designs, then I doubt you can go wrong with the Devialet. It had surgical precision and clarity, but no groove factor. 

I thought the Parasound gear I auditioned that day was near as good with resolution and imaging, but had a warmer, more inviting sound. Of course, it's all subjective but that was my experience. 
@helomech, thanks for your input. The Devialet is a Class A and D Hybrid, you don't feel any better than a pure class D amp?
I've heard at least one other amp that was class A input and D output. The result was similar. I also owned a Rogue Pharaoh, which is a tube/class D hybrid. I've concluded that class D sound (as I hear it) is partially a function of the output topology. The best (and warmest) class D amps I've encountered were hybrids, so I'd believe that both input and output sections have a significant influence. The same goes for full tube vs. hybrid tube/SS. A full tube amp sounds quite different from the hybrids I've encountered.

Some people like the class D sound, and for those who do, and have significant discretionary funds, the Devialet is a good performing product. I've heard several integrateds and separates systems that I felt performed just as well for much less, but they're heavy, bulky and power hungry in comparison. 
Hi @helomech,

Will you say within similar price range, class A is so much better than the Devialet ? I don't have any experience in class A amp or any other type of hybrid except Devialet's ADH.

Nowadays Class D has been improved a lot, I heard many people said it almost hard to say which one is better.
