About the Devialet Dione
One bar is all you need
The Devialet Dione delivers crystal-clear, enveloping Dolby Atmos sound from a single elegant bar.
One bar is all you need
The Devialet Dione is an all-in-one home cinema solution, filling your room with spacious Dolby Atmos sound using no less than 17 built-in speakers — all packed into a slim, powerful bar.
This sound bar's 5.1.2-channel arrangement and intelligent processing delivers precise, dynamic, three-dimensional sound that feels like it's all around you — including two height channels for immersive overhead effects and a dedicated bass channel articulated by eight long-throw woofers for powerful low-frequency impact. No need for extra gear, speakers, or wire running across your floor. This one bar does it all.
Powered by French engineering
Devialet is well-known for their innovative acoustical expertise, and the Dione sound bar integrates several of their patented technologies to optimize your sound for home cinema. This allows an ultra-thin bar to deliver big sound with subtle detail. Advanced spatial processing and real-time dynamic equalization work together with high-powered built-in amplification and Devialet's carefully designed aluminum drivers for a wide soundstage with realistic effects, drawing you into the action onscreen.
You can control this sound bar and play music from your mobile device using the Devialet App. Built-in dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, and Universal Plug 'n' Play (UPnP) give you plenty of options to stream high-quality audio of your favorite music. The bar comes with built-in Spotify Connect, and the app supports a ton of streaming services like Deezer, Qobuz, Apple Music, TIDAL, and Amazon Music.
The Dione also benefits from a high-quality built-in DAC (digital-to-analog converter) for detailed, accurate sound and support for high-res audio sources up to 24-bit/96kHz.
Built-in AirPlay 2
Apple fans are in good hands. AirPlay 2 lets you stream using an iPhone® or iPad® and connect the sound bar to the AirPlay ecosystem. If you're a subscriber to Apple Music®, you can also use Siri to control and play that service with your voice too.
Compact design with a unique, rotating center channel speaker
This sleek sound bar can be placed on a tabletop, but it looks especially slick mounted on the wall. Its ultra-thin design makes it easy to place under most TVs, and its unique spherical center speaker automatically adjusts based on the bar's positioning. This means that you're getting the same great sound whether you place it flat on a tabletop or mount it vertically on a wall.
An HDMI eARC (enhanced Audio Return Channel) connection lets the bar receive uncompressed audio signals — including Dolby Atmos — from an eARC-equipped TV with just the one HDMI cable. It's also simple to customize your sound with four built-in modes: Cinema, Spatial, Music, and Voice. You can switch between them with a quick swipe, and even tailor the sound to your room with a quick auto-calibration scan using the Devialet App.

5.1.2 Dolby Atmos: The Devialet Dione uses 8 high-definition audio channels, including to elevation Height channels to create enveloping 3-dimensional effects and expand the width of the soundstage. The 8 audio channels are configured in a 5.1.2 layout with advanced channel splitting depending on the soundbar orientation (horizontally on a shelf or vertically on a wall). The Devialet Dione is natively compatible with Dolby Atmos, using the latest innovations in multichannel and object-based audio. Originally designed for the film industry, Dolby Atmos delivers layered 3D sound from above, taking the viewer's experience into a 3-dimensional space. Dolby Atmos is used by filmmakers in the mixing stage to place sounds and voices at exact points in the soundstage rather than simply assign them to specific channels. With Dolby Atmos, the Devialet Dione can distribute sounds in space with 3D effects that make the listener perceive airplanes as if they were flying overhead.
- The Devialet Dione soundbar speaker system also supports Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, and Dolby TrueHD.
- The Devialet Dione does not support DTS, DTS-HD, DTS:X, and other DTS multichannel audio formats.
17 Driver Array: The Devialet Dione features a 17 driver array, including an ORB Central Sphere and 8 dedicated subwoofers directly powered by the awarded ADH amplification and SAM signal processing technologies. This audio architecture results in 5.1.2 channel surround (Front L/R, Center, Rear L/R, Subwoofer, and Height L/R) that delivers a room-filling 3D (three-dimensional) audio experience. The inclusion of 9 full-range drivers and 8 high-excursions subwoofers produce immersive surround sound and deep bass without the need for a separate powered subwoofer or external rear speakers, making the Devialet Dione a truly all-in-one active soundbar speaker system.
- Aluminum Cone Construction with "Push-Pull" Configuration: Each speaker driver unit is composed of an aluminum membrane with a high field neodymium magnet, providing excellent sensitivity and acoustic characteristics. The nine 1.625" full-range drivers create dynamic midrange and crystal clear high frequencies, while the eight 5.25" woofers deliver deep and powerful bass down to 24 Hz while being arranged in Devialet engineered "push-push" configuration to further cancel any mechanical vibrations.
- ORB Central Sphere: The ORB central sphere driver handles the center channel of your movie soundtracks for extremely precise and focused sound. It houses one of the 1.625" full-range drivers, plus 2 passive radiators. The ORB central sphere has the ability to manually rotate 180° clockwise to visually and acoustically maintain its front-facing position whether wall-mounted or when placed flat on a piece of furniture.
- SAM (Speaker Active Matching): Devialet invented SAM (Speaker Active Matching) mathematical model to ensure immaculate fidelity all throughout playback. Whether you're dealing with transients or steady-state signal, the degree of information processed by SAM surpasses anything previously thought possible. This enables the Devialet Dione to reproduce the exact rhythm and tempo of your music and movie soundtracks with absolute precision. So you can feel every last emotion and effect, true to the way the it was intended.
ADH (Analog Digital Hybrid) Amplification: The Devialet Dione employs Devialet's ADH amplifier technology with intelligent DSP (digital signal processing). A Devialet-patented technology, ADH (Analog Digital Hybrid) gives you all the sophistication of Class A analog with all the power and compactness of Class D digital. Giving you the best of both worlds, the Devialet Dione's amplifier section delivers unparalleled clarity and transparency at whatever the volume. Its intelligent DSP maintains and preserves the soundbar's pristine amplification and audio performance with incredible low distortion (0.001%) for optimized, flawless sound every-time. The Devialet Dione soundbar speaker system delivers a total of 950 watts of dynamic, distortion-free power.
Devialet Audio Technologies: The Devialet Dione is powered by a suite of patented Devialet audio technologies that render exceptional sound performance. SPACE Technology actively upscales any stereo-encoded 2.0 signal into a 5.1.2 signal, creating an enveloping spatial effect. Adaptive Volume Level (AVL) adjusts sound levels in real-time, to enjoy the impact of the sound effects without missing dialog. Devialet’s Advanced Dimensional Experience (ADE) technology delivers superior surround sound reproduction thanks to innovative speaker placement and advanced digital filters.
- SPACE Technology: SPACE technology leverages the full potential of the soundbar's 17 speakers by upscaling any signal (including 2ch) into a thrilling 5.1.2 multichannel experience. Proprietary upmixing algorithms are used through several listening modes to fine tune the soundbar's acoustic capabilities and enhance the viewing and listening experience. Movie Mode actively converts stereo content into a full-fledged multichannel experience when connected via the HDMI and Optical inputs. Spatial Mode transforms stereo tracks into layered 3-dimensional sound when used with any wireless audio source (AirPlay 2, Bluetooth, Spotify Connect, and UPnP) to place the listener center stage and enjoy music and other content at their best. Voice Mode boosts accuracy and intelligibility on programs like podcasts and news. Music Mode faithfully reproduces a stereo setup and disables all spatialization effects.
- Adaptive Volume Level (AVL): Adaptive Volume Level (AVL) is a a unique dynamic equalizer that harmonizes sound levels in real-time depending on the content being played. This signal processing technology works by analyzing the signal upstream and making sure to equal the loudness of the multiple sounds that make up a movie scene such as dialog, sound effects, and music, bringing key audible benefits such as smoother listening (avoiding movie scenes going from too quiet to too loud), reinforced clearness (fixing quiet or unintelligible dialog in an action scene), and improved soundstage (better highlighting the different audio objects in the scene).
- Advanced Dimensional Experience (ADE): Advanced Dimensional Experience (ADE) patented technology combines speaker placement detection and advanced digital filters to deliver superior multichannel audio reproduction through the use of beamforming techniques. ADE technology with these beamforming techniques optimize soundbar's surround and elevation audio channels broadcast and reflection according to the position of the soundbar speaker (either horizontal or mounted vertically on a wall). As a result, this maximizes the impact and immersion of multichannel content at all times, no matter the position of the soundbar, while delivering superior audio all around.
Room Calibration Software: The Devialet Dione offers room calibration software using the Devialet App (for Apple iOS 11.0+ / Android OS 5.0+) and the soundbar's 4 integrated microphones. This custom software takes into consideration multiple acoustic parameters that might impact the audio quality such as room size, walls, furniture, layout, and the placement of the soundbar inside the room to create an accurate representation of the surrounding space. Then, by playing different echoes and frequency sweeps, the Devialet Dione will intelligently tune the sound output to the acoustic model of the room, so that the soundbar sounds as good as possible wherever it is positioned.
HDMI 2.1 eARC Jack: The Devialet Dione is equipped with an HDMI 2.1 eARC jack. eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) is the next generation of ARC (Audio Return Channel), and enables the Devialet Dione to receive the original full-resolution audio signal in lossless formats at the highest bit rate possible. The HDMI eARC input is backward compatible, so it can be used with earlier versions of the HDMI ARC specification without any issue.
