About the Devialet Phantom II 95dB
Eye-catching and ear-pleasing
Eye-catching and ear-pleasing
There's no mistaking the streamlined teardrop shape of the Devialet Phantom II 95dB. And this powered speaker's sound quality — and quantity — are equally unique, especially considering its compact size.
The Phantom II 95dB has two side-firing aluminum woofers, for powerful, hard-hitting bass. They combine with a centered aluminum full-range driver to create an expansive soundstage that fills your room.
High-performance soundThe Phantom II 95dB has a built-in DAC (digital-to-analog converter) that can play high-resolution digital audio. And with 350 watts of continuous (RMS) power, the Phantom II 95dB can simulate the experience of being right in front of the stage at a concert.
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.
Built-in Apple AirPlay® 2 lets you play audio directly from your iPhone®, iPad®, or Mac® computer. That includes soundtracks from YouTube® videos and Netflix movies. The speaker is also compatible with Universal Plug 'n' Play (UPnP) high-resolution streaming, for music stored on your media server or NAS drive.
If your Wi-Fi isn't up to snuff, you can hardwire the Phantom II 95dB to your network with an Ethernet cable. A combination mini optical digital audio input/stereo minijack audio input gives you even more options. Use your computer or portable player's headphone jack to connect to the speaker. Or run an optical digital cable (with a Toslink-to-mini-optical digital adapter) from your TV to the Phantom II 95dB.
A speaker like no other
The coolest feature is the side-firing bass drivers. When I activated the Phantom II 95dB, they pulsed, as if the speaker was breathing. And when I started playing music — well that was a breath of fresh air. Those drivers delivered bass so full it was almost visceral, especially at high volumes. Bass-heavy hip-hop tracks were slamming!
Both the bass and treble were tight. That made a huge difference when I played music at low volumes. My tunes sounded just as clean and clear no matter how loud or soft I set the volume.
Roon-compatible for serious music lovers
The Phantom II 95dB 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.
