    Re: Top Level integrated

    Devialet D1000 Expert Pro is the best I have heard. I compared it to many very high end separates before buying my D250 Pro and nothing I heard offered the same seamless power, total transparency, liquid quality to the sound.

    I own one, but I don't think it's the best because I own one. I own one because I think it's the best.

    Cheers,
    Bernard

    I agree with you, the Devialet is very good. Wish it was more powerful

    My 1000 drive my Wilson Benesch ACT One Evolution with ease and can take them to earth shattering levels without breaking a sweat eventhough they aren't the easiest load. Most normal people perceive it as too loud at -40Db... in a 30sqm room.

    What makes you think it lacks power?

    I see. You tried the 1000 or another model?

    Re: Top Level integrated

    Upgrading from 800 to 1000 isnít cheap but they redesigned completely the hardware for the first time since the original Premier (I started there also).

    To my ears itís now as close as it gets to a perfect amp.

    I donít know whether it would answer your power needs, but it may be worth trying.

    I was doing a little reading, what about the Music Fidelity Nu Vista 800 or the 600.

    Please donít!

    I had the Nu Vista 800 and couldnít stand it. It did have some good qualities but the tremendous amount of sibilants was painful to my ear. I wanted to love it but I was unable to listen to it, sadly.

    Only consider it if you can demo first.

    Which YG's are you using? The Audionet Humbolt is a great match with most of the line.

    house first!!
    humboldt is long term pleasure. it is that good that i sold everything else and will build a system around it.
    power is the only limit.
    had a wilson alexia2 for a couple of weeks, sounded superb & great control. however, it played in a big livingroom (120m2) and that is the edge where you start to think about the stern&heisenberg.
