INFINITELY UPGRADABLE

Choose from stereo, dual-mono or up to 8 Expert Pro in multi-amplification and scale your system according to your individual needs.

With infinite configurability and performance that’s constantly pushing beyond, Expert Pro’s unique fractal architecture meets your every requirement.

Major Technological Breakthroughs

Breakthrough after breakthrough, Expert Pro technologies continue to redefine audio industry standards.

Ten years of research and development, 100+ patents and 60 awards later, Expert Pro remains the most critically acclaimed audio system of all time.

The Amplifier. Reinvented

Dive into the most advanced audio system in the world.

True score of extreme engineering and leading-edge technologies at the service of music reproduction, Expert Pro systems are constantly pushing beyond to deliver the best performance in any circumstance.

ADH® – ANALOG DIGITAL HYBRID

The best of both worlds. ADH is the hybrid amplification technology that combines for the first time the refinement and linearity of Analog (Class A) with the power and compactness of Digital (Class D).

Working in parallel, they deliver the best power amplifier performance ever achieved.

SAM® – SPEAKER ACTIVE MATCHING

From a mathematical model of your speakers, SAM® Speaker Active Matching enables your Expert Pro to adapt accurately the signal transmitted to them. For the first time, it is then possible to obtain a perfect time alignment between the recorded signal and the sound pressure generated by the speaker drivers.

RAM™ – RECORD ACTIVE MATCHING

Introducing RAM. The most versatile and dynamic phono stage ever invented.

With next-generation Record Active Matching technology, your Expert Pro’s phono stage becomes entirely configurable on-the-fly, and adapts itself dynamically to the exact characteristics of your turntable and vinyl records.

With more than 256 combinations for your MM or MC cartridge and 13 RIAA equalization curves available, RAM perfectly tailors the playback of your favorite albums.

DAC – MAGIC WIRE™

Take the shortest route. Invented by Devialet, the Magic Wire circuitery ensures the shortest distance ever between the DAC and the speaker output connectors: right down to 5 cm.

This design allows to avoid degradation of the signal over the overall bandwidth, to ensure a perfect impedance matching and to keep noise and thermal distorsion to an absolute minimum.

POWER SUPPLY

Expert Pro uses a revolutionary switch-mode power supply to take you from absolute silence to explosive dynamics instantly.

This ultra high-performance power supply feeds the overall power of the Expert Pro system, while ensuring a very high efficiency rate of about 90%.

EVO™ – EVOLUTIVE PLATFORM

Expert Pro systems are fitted with our EVO platform, a unique electronic architecture driven by an upgradable software.

Your Expert Pro keeps getting better through free and regular updates, offering new features and increased performance.

Infinitely & Precisely Configurable

Experience the ultimate audiophile tool.

Expert Pro online Configurator lets you tailor your system to your slightest preference.

Choose between up to three different functions per connector (digital or analog input or output).

Define active filters in multi-channel or dual-mono.

Configure your phono stage with absolute precision. Taken to new extremes, Expert Pro Configurator guarantees a seamless fit with your sources and speakers

The emotional power of music, just as the artist intended.
