High-performance sound in a stylish package
The Devialet Classic Phantom delivers high-performance sound that can easily fill a room. Actually, with 1,200 watts of peak power, it might also break the lease. This high-tech speaker is carefully crafted to deliver finely detailed sound no matter the volume.
Serious high-performance audio
The Classic Phantom features a center-firing aluminum tweeter and midrange driver. The two side-firing bass drivers offer bass response down to 16 Hz. You might not be able to hear that low, but you'll feel the vibrations. The speaker's built-in DAC (digital-to-analog converter) can play high-resolution digital audio sources, and the Classic Phantom can reproduce them with accuracy and clarity.
Stream music from your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth. The Devialet Spark control app natively supports Spotify® Connect. With your Spotify Premium subscription, you can stream from this service using your Spotify app.
Built-in Apple AirPlay® lets you play audio directly from your iPhone®, iPad®, or Mac® computer through the Classic Phantom. The speaker is also compatible with Universal Plug 'n' Play (UPnP) high-resolution streaming, for music stored on your media server or NAS drive.
You can hardwire the Classic Phantom to your network with an Ethernet cable. A Toslink digital audio input gives you even more options. You can run a digital optical cable from your TV, game console, or high-performance disc player.
Roon-compatible for serious music lovers
The Classic Phantom 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.
You can use Classic Phantom and other compatible Devialet Phantom Premier speakers in a wireless multi-room audio system with the addition of a Devialet Dialog hub (available separately).

The best of both worlds for amplification of unparalleled clarity and transparency, whatever the volume. The Devialet Classic Phantom is equipped with a 2000 watt (Peak) amplifier.
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 Classic Phantom to reproduce the exact rhythm and tempo of your music with absolute precision. So you can feel every last emotion, true to the original. The Devaialet Classic Phantom is equipped with a front-mounted aluminum dome tweeter and aluminum midrange driver, as well as two opposite side-firing aluminum woofers.
HBI (Heart Bass Implosion): HBI (Heart Bass Implosion) is a one-of-a-kind system, designed to take you deeper into sound. For the first time, an ultra-compact home speaker is able to reproduce ridiculously low bass that resonates beyond the limits of the human ear, throughout your entire body. Unleash your music's full potential all the way down to 16Hz.
ACE (Active Cospherical Engine): ACE (Active Cosperical Engine) is the technology responsible for the Classic Phantom's radical spherical architecture. Drawing on Olson's pulsating sphere principle, the Classic Phantom dramatically optimizes the way sound waves form and spread - evenly and in all directions. The result is perfectly balanced audio and zero surface diffraction, wherever you are in the room.
EVO Platform: The Classic Phantom utilizes Devialet's EVO platform allowing for hassle-free, wireless firmware and software updates through the Devialet Phantom App on your compatible Apple iOS or Android device over your home's WiFi network.

This allow you to share the music on the computer's hard-drive with Clients, such as the Classic Phantom. Your music library can include digital music located anywhere on your home network such as shared folders on your own computer (Windows or Mac), shared folders on another computer on your network, or music stored on a Network-Attached Storage (NAS) device on your network. Using UPnP, the Classic Phantom can connect to these devices and play back, or 'stream' non-DRM music files via the network to your home entertainment system.
