    10.0.2 running in my le200 is good sounding to my ears.

    I upgraded my 200 from version 9 to 10. It seems to me that now has a less sweet sound. The bass sounds are too dynamic and an unnatural midrange. It looks like a dynamic manipulation. I can restore the firmware 9 for verification? Maybe I'm wrong in my opinion. Thank you

    Any feedback / improvements if or what changes have been made between firmware 9.X and 10.X that may influence sound quality?

    I am very pleased with 10.02 .  A very effective upgrade.  I find all aspects of quality are improved.  On my 120 I use SAM at 70% and bass filter at 500HZ with my Spendor D7's. Not an ideal room!

    BTW I only found out about the upgrade a few days ago. If you emailed owners to tell them it was out (22 July?) I didn't get it.  Please add me to the list for the future.

    Is it still the plan that updates to firmware will actually include new features or improvements?

    The last two major version numbers (9.x and 10.x) have pretty much been branding for inclusion of new models rather than because they contain any major new features! The equivalent would be Apple changing from OSX 10 to 11 because they added a new Mac mini model. 

    Are there any new features or major enhancements coming to future versions of firmware 10.x?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    It is my feeling that after installing 10.0.2 on my Expert 120, the output power has decreased. I was not able to reach anywhere near -5 db on previous version but now I can easily increase the volume to +3 db without any problem.

    Is it only me or is there anyone else who has the same feeling?

    Answering another users question:

    "What is the new graphical chart?"

     

    From what I can tell, blue dots for volume and a progress bar for boot up.

    Dear Friends,

    Long time with no feedback from me, sorry for that.

    Let's try to come back on track - few questions have been raised, let me try to answer/comment them:

    -  Marcom - you can find the firmware 9 into our main website after being log on, in the software (more details here)

    - Markus, no specific areas have been updated on the SQ with the firmware 10.0.2 from my knowledge. But this aspect is really based on personal taste and I can't be too much affirmative sound quality perception. 

    - Piers, could you please open a ticket our customer service and support team for this (we need your email adress to add your name in the Upgrade communication - here to open a request)

    - Ian graphical charts question have been responded correctly by Hifi_swlon.

    - Armin, let's see if our Expert community, got the same "behavior" on their side. If you want us to dig more in deep please feel free to open request to our CSS team here

    - Hifi_swlon - we still have pack of feature to add and feature roadmap ( I won't tell more now it's too premature :) ) but some items became priorities in our Firmware delivery, let's follow up firmware evolution, you should see new features coming.

     

    Please continue to share your though, feedback or issue. I like the way we are chatting/exchanging (will try to be more reactive on this page as I'm on the "Love is in the Air" page)

    Enjoy your incoming week, it should start since you press the On button of your Expert.

     

    Musically yours,

    Seb

    The SAM & ICM setting is still not remembered per source. To fix this was actually promised for v9 but is still missing! Especially annoying for all using a cinema setup (where it's recommended from Devialet to use a SAM 0%) and to have to adapt this every single time when changing from listening from USB / Air to cinema setup (LINE In) mode.

    When will this finally be fixed?

    Hi all,

     

    I'm a bit late on this page, as I can see, sorry for that.

    Markus, let me check this one with our team and come back to you with a precise information.

    thanks.

    Hi,

    FW 10.0.x gave the best sound so far. Lots of detail, well controlled top to bottom response which I never heard on my 120 before. It's like I got a whole new system. Thumbs up.

    Cheers,

    Sam

    One thing I would like to be able in an expert dual mono configuration is to use the ports on the slave.

    Maybe this is something that can be done already (but I could not get it to work). If not this would expand and use perfectly good hardware that seem wasted...
