With cinemas and theatres remaining closed during Chinese New Year, you can still enjoy blockbusters and shows while staying home. Devialet, a French acoustical engineering company, shares expert tips to optimise home audio experience – without breaking the bank (and the bricks)!
Devialet has been on a mission to elevate sound to its rightful place in our lives, providing audiences around the world with a uniquely intricate and moving listening experience. The brand’s flagship revolutionary all-in-one speaker, Phantom, is being taken to the next level with a new iteration of the state-of-the-art speaker.
Phantom I embeds Devialet’s signature patented technologies, achieving acoustic excellence zero distortion, zero saturation and zero background noise. Modern yet timeless, Phantom I’s iconic spherical design has been updated with a modern matte finish, now available in black and white to either let it stand out or fit in.
Setting up the speaker
Set up mono, stereo or multi-room configuration for the Phantom speakers with a straightforward Devialet app.
New Devialet OS to play all your music wirelessly through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Airplay 2, Spotify Connect, Roon Ready; or connect through Optical TOSLINK, ethernet.
Placing the speakers right
Phantom’s tweeter grill, placed right at the front of the speaker, should be at the same height as your ears when you’re seated. Place Phantom I on the audio cabinet, or raise them to the ideal and perfect height with the matching accessory for the ultimate audiophile listening experience.
Two Phantom I should be placed a bit oriented towards the inside, in order to create a triangle with the listener in the middle.
Making tiny adjustments on furniture
Cover glass windows and glass doors with drapes to absorb sound waves to improve the clarity of the audio.
Place a small rug for the terrazzo floor between the television and sofa to diminish reflections.
Since founding, Devialet remains on a mission to achieve simplicity in engineering but also design.
Phantom’s iconic design remains one-of-a-kind, carefully crafted to reflect both the purity of sound you hear, but also the extreme power it holds within.
Emmanuel Nardin, Product & Design Director, and co-founder at Devialet, says:
“Ambitious design and acoustic excellence are at the heart of all Devialet products. To us, Phantom I is the marriage of these two visions, a perfect balance of artistry and technology.
Embracing Devialet’s core design ethos with more precise, carefully considered details, Phantom I feels modern, sophisticated and timeless all at once. It’s a huge achievement for us and we are excited to see the Phantom family raise the bar once again.
