      Peter Tyson sells Devialet but those particular models are not on their site at present.

      Finally, Devialet realised they have to release a smaller model. They took their time...
      Two 600 watts ones could be used as stereo speakers too...
      Sadly, pricing is not right still...
      600w should have been £650 and 900w around £1000...
      I need to check prices in France as uk tends to push them higher...I bet you just change price to € !!!

      Did you mean to say something or just a mistake ? I checked the price and you can save a fortune buying in Europe where you can easily get a combined 20 percent discount (exchange rate plus 10 percent)

      Yep. Devialet are ripping us off. We are still in eu so why are we paying the same price in gbp as in usd and euros? I think they will sell quite well but do they really think most people will not notice that we are being ripped off in the Uk or do they think apple do it so we shall and no one will mind! I mind. A lot. I was very interested in getting a Devialet stereo set up for my bedroom but I just can’t stomach being unfairly treated. B&w and kef speakers are more expensive in the usa than the uk... looks like I will be going down a B&w and uk amp like naim route. My marantz av amp was $2000 in the usa. I paid £1029 in uk. Screw you devialet.

      I exchanged with GM and let him know. Not sure they are controlling price in uk.
      I will not disregard as very easy to buy abroad.
      One small one could be more than enough
      Especially for a bedroom...
      I have a naim atom myself but this would have interested me highly as perfect size

      Was listening to these in a Berlin department store last week. I'm no audiophile but to me they sounded excellent. Definitely interested one day but then I heard the price which is a no go :(. Anyone else been impressed by then?

      I was going to get some but got some Adam T5V in the end for £400 with a USB DAC and Cables.

      I was severely tempted though! Main thing that put me off is that they are white and everything I have is black, oh, and the price!

      Bought Mrs Ozzzy one for Christmas, it's stunning. Reactor 600, bought from HiddenSystems and very happy with it and would highly recommend one to folks who want something that'll rival a system costing quite a lot more.

      Me, surprised there's only white but imo it's well worth the money as nothing else comes close even the lovely Harmon kardon flytrap.

      Get a 600 you'd have to spend a lot more to get a better performing system. I have a 20k system and that little thing certainly can give it a run for its money, so much so that I'm thinking of going down the devialet road for my main system now.
