About the Devialet Phantom I 103dB
A streaming speaker with a unique, high-tech design
A streaming speaker with a unique, high-tech design
The innovative Devialet Phantom I 103dB delivers rich, realistic sound without distortion. This wireless speaker's streamlined cabinet not only looks unique, but contributes to its robust performance. Two side-firing aluminum woofers deliver deep, powerful bass you can feel. They combine with a centered aluminum midrange driver and aluminum tweeter to create a detailed and expansive 360° soundstage that fills your room.
Innovative processing for your digital music sources
The Phantom I 103dB uses a patented ADH® (Analog Digital Hybrid) amplifier system to ensure the most accurate sound possible. The analog amplifier sends it signal to four digital amplifiers, giving you the warmth of analog coupled with the accuracy of digital.
The speaker's built-in DAC (digital-to-analog converter) works together with an advanced processor that makes adjustments to the signal in real time. This ensures that the speaker is always delivering the most accurate, realistic sound possible — at all volume levels, and for all types of music from pure acoustic to pure electronic.
As the name says, the speaker can deliver volume up to 103dB, thanks to powerful built-in amplification rated at 480 watts RMS. The side-firing bass woofers move in sync to cancel out unwanted vibrations. This lets the deepest bass frequencies come through — super low frequencies you don't hear, but feel.
Stream music from your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth. The Devialet control app comes with Spotify® Connect built in. With your Spotify subscription, you can stream from this service without leaving the app.
Apple AirPlay 2 is built into the Phantom I 103dB as well. That means you can stream audio content directly from your iPhone®, iPad®, or Mac® computer through your speaker. That includes soundtracks from YouTube® videos and Netflix® movies.
The speaker is also compatible with Universal Plug 'n' Play (UPnP) high-resolution streaming up to 24-bit/48kHz, for music stored on your media server or NAS drive.
Roon-compatible for serious music lovers
The Phantom I 103dB is also compatible with Roon, a subscription digital music player for your smartphone, tablet, or computer. Roon accesses your digital music collection from your iTunes® library or NAS drive. It also works with your TIDAL subscription.
Roon lets you do deep dives into your music, showing artist bios, photos, reviews, and lyrics. Roon can also suggest other artists and songs based on your selections, making it easy to discover new music you'll enjoy.
If your Wi-Fi isn't up to snuff, you can hardwire the Phantom I 103dB to your network with an Ethernet cable. A Toslink optical digital audio input lets you make a wired connection from a CD player or other compatible audio component.
