2. Streaming with Devialet AIR
On Mac or Windows, you have the possibility to set your Expert as the audio output. This means that sounds made from your computer will come out of your Devialet amplifier.
Devialet AIR does not open any window on your screen, it simply ads a logo on your status bar. The activation happens in two steps:
- pairing with Devialet AIR your computer to you amplifier.
- selecting the amplifier as the audio output.
For this to work, it is important that the computer and the amplifier are connected to the same WiFi, or via Ethernet.
3. Music on your phone
Streaming from a phone to the Expert amplifier is not functional as of today. My Devialet Remote is an app available on the App Store. This app enables one to send music to the Expert, but only if the music is stored on your phone.
Spotify, Tidal, Youtube, etc... are not compatible coming from a phone.
4. Other solutions
Some devices enable you to stream towards your Expert in a more flexible way.
Airport Express by Apple: If you plug your Airport Express via optical branching to your Devialet amplifier, you will be able to send, from a Mac or an Iphone, music via Airplay towards the airport. As the airport is plugged into your amplifier, it is your Devialet amplifier that will produce the sound. You can use this solution to stream any content via airplay.
Chromecast/Sonos Connect: If you plug one of these devices to your Devialet Amplifier via optical branching, you will be able to send, from a computer or a phone, music via the app corresponding to the device. As the "bridge" device is plugged into your amplifier, it is it that will produce the sound. You can use this solution to stream any content from phone or computer.
Upgrade your Expert to Expert PRO: you can send us your Expert to upgrade it to Expert Pro. This will enable several streaming solutions on your Expert (airplay, Spotify connect, Roon RAAT) and renew its 5 years manufacturer warranty). Contact the Devialet customer care team for further details and pricing.
