Audio Plus Services, the North American importer/distributor of premium AV products, has added the French audio brand, Devialet, to its catalog.
Devialet's flagship D-Premier product features the French company's ADH amplification technology and unique remote control design.
According to Daniel Jacques, founder and president of Audio Plus Services, “When I learned of the opportunity to import Devialet into North America, it was indeed very exciting for me as an audio enthusiast. After visiting with the entire team of passionate senior management members at Devialet in France though I was even more excited about the long-term business opportunities that this exciting brand offers.”
ADH (Analog/Digital Hybrid) is a new and patented form of amplification specially developed by Devialet. It is this proprietary technology that enables products like the company’s flagship D-Premier to be so slim, yet deliver so much power, the company says.
ADH combines pure Class A operation with Class D, operating in parallel one with the other. By combining Class A and Class D, Devialet has created what is says are electronics that deliver tremendous loudspeaker control and dynamic authority, yet the character of the sound you hear is pure Class A refinement.
Based in Paris, Devialet was conceived in 2004 by Pierre-Emmanuel Calmel and Mathias Moronvalle who developed and patented AHD. In 2006, Calmel and Moronvalle met other entrepreneurs -- also musicians and audiophiles -- from the fields of industrial design, marketing, and management consulting: Emmanuel Nardin, Quentin Sannie, and Manuel de la Fuente. In 2007, they formed Devialet.
