About the Devialet Gold Phantom Opéra de Paris
Powerful and elegant
Powerful and elegant
The Devialet Gold Phantom Opéra de Paris emulates the elegance of its namesake. Its side panels shine with hand-applied gold leaf. And its sound is just as remarkable. This speaker's frequency response extends both above and below the range of human hearing, and it's driven by a powerful built-in amplifier rated at 4,500 watts peak. This finely crafted high-tech speaker gives you detailed, accurate sound no matter the volume.
Serious high-performance audio
The Devialet Gold Phantom Opéra de Paris features a center-firing titanium tweeter for extremely accurate highs — up to 27,000 Hz. The two side-firing bass drivers offer bass response down to 14 Hz. An aluminum midrange driver fills out the sound. The speaker's built-in DAC (digital-to-analog converter) can play high-resolution digital audio sources, and the Gold 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. 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 Gold 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 Gold Phantom Opéra de Paris 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.
