  1. There are a number of Devialet Phantom owners in the forum. Thought it would be useful to start an owner’s thread to exchange notes and also, be a good introduction for others. Many people know the Phantom as a lifestyle product with incredible bass but do not realise that a stereo pair makes a good hifi system. The Phantoms have 2 ranges, the newer, smaller Reactor and the Premier range. The Reactor is natively compatible with Spotify Connect, Airplay, UPnP and Bluetooth (with more to come) while a Premier has all the streaming connections, see here. The Phantoms are “Roon tested”, which means Roon is accessible via Airplay or via a Roon endpoint feeding the optical input. Phantoms will be “Roon Ready” when Roon Advanced Audio Transport (RAAT) is implemented; RAAT connectivity is in the works, ETA unknown. There are some limitations. The DAC is capable of playing up to 24/192 music, no support for DSD/DSF nor MQA. Roon can compensate by transcoding DSD/DSF and doing first MQA unfold. While the Phantoms are very good out of the box, these things make them even better: Get a stereo pair which is significantly better than one. However, it is not easy to audition them as a pair because most retailers (and Devialet!) position them as a lifestyle product. Thus, retailers usually set them up as singles in the store. Note that stereo pairing of the Premier range requires a Dialog hub (not needed, not compatible with Reactors). Put Phantoms on speaker stands (e.g. Devialet Tree and Treepod for Premier range, but other stands also work) to elevate them to ear level Pay attention to the position in the room, speaker alignment and toe-in. While the Phantoms are much more forgiving than many speakers, focussing on their placement will improve the sound Use Isoacoustics Aperta 100 aluminium stand. Putting the Phantom on an Isoacoustics stand reduces smearing of instruments and is particularly effective when the Phantom is sitting on furniture. Note that these stands are usually stocked and sold as black pairs; to get aluminium coloured pairs, retailer orders from distributor. Apply room correction to improve detail, resolution and bass management. Options include using miniDSP with Dirac Live, DSpeaker (both via optical input) or Roon room correction. For UPnP, use Minimserver Convolution. Official help on Phantoms installation and usage here. Devialet Chat is the unofficial user forum. Please post your experience with the Devialet Phantoms and suggest other improvements that worked for you. And questions are most welcome.
  2. What have I DONE!??? I now have a stereo pair of mutant Stormtrooper helmets with gold bling! I moved from a setup with all these components and lots of cables to something which resembled a pair of mutant Stormtrooper helmets with gold bling !  Otherwise known as Devialet Phantom Gold, they provided superb audio quality expected of a high end hifi system in a pair of components, each slightly larger than a soccer ball ! What convinced me? It started with a post from @andrewhollo (thank you Andrew!) who moved from the same brand active speakers to the Phantom Golds and I had a discussion with him. The reviews of the Phantom Gold often praised the audio quality, particularly the bass but gave a thumbs down for the pricing. However, most reviews were for a single speaker targeted at the wireless market. However, this article changed things: Steve Huff is well known in the photography world but has a passion for hifi. He swapped over to the Phantom Golds with improved AQ. Steve mentioned that getting the phantoms on stands and positioning the speakers were critical. It was backed up by Andrew’s description of a night and day difference between a single Gold and a stereo pair. The audition at Klapp AV, as a single speaker (& typical of most retailers), confirmed the ability to deliver detail and bass. Despite the impressive bass, I still had some concerns about the whether it could deliver good enough bass in my difficult room. Had to rely on reviews, and Andrew, for their feedback on stereo performance. So How Do They Sound? The Phantom Golds provide a superb musical sound stage with detail. Sound stage is open and airy, much better than previously. Resolution of individual instruments has improved. Details are all there. Regarding the bass, there was no doubt that the Golds are better than old setup without subs. The room is an open plan family room with no bass traps. The Golds lose to the highly optimised dual sub setup but that is not a surprise. It took a long time to get to that state with a target curve that boosts bass by 4 dB, but tails off below 30 Hz. However, the Golds matched the setup optimised with dual subs without a target curve. Impressive indeed! 👍 Potentially, bass could be improved further by playing with the positioning within the room; this flexibility was not available in the previous setup. WOW! I was losing almost nothing with the bass and gained a better musical sound stage with the helmets! Apps are not perfect Not too sure about the Spark App which is not as good as BluOS. Am using BubbleUpnp app on to access the music on the NAS and that is working reasonably well. Please note that BubbleUpnp app is extremely sensitive to wifi dropouts and not recommended for rooms with poor wifi. A move to Roon may be the next step. Lessons learnt Don’t dismiss a system because it looks different. Simplicity should be the driver Enjoy the music not the journey/thrill of upgrading and adding components which leads to increased complexity; see lesson 2 Conclusion A stereo pair of Devialet Phantom Golds on stands delivers audio quality that can at least match many high end audio systems costing a lot more. It may be a challenge to audition them as a stereo pair on stands, but until you do, do not dismiss them. A stereo pair of Phantom Golds is a seriously good setup. Can now spend more time listening, which is what this game should be about… ------------- Before and after Components and cabling replaced
  3. This is probably going to be the shortest showcase thread ever as the upgrade path from here is fairly limited. I was undecided about posting here as it sort of means a pause in the journey but it was deliberate. Kids are starting high school and time for playing around with hi-fi seems to be getting less and less and want to explore some other hobbies. This was actually my biggest ever single purchase but I replaced a pre amp, amp, speakers and many cables so the end investment was not much different. I listened to only one of these in the showroom and was just gob smacked. I took a punt and bought a pair of Silver Phantoms along with the Dialog controller and the remote. Firstly, aesthetics are very pleasing (at least to me and the wife) which is a first. Secondly, it really simplified my set-up. So I currently have the Tbox into Oppo 105 and out to TV to cover TV, Netflix and CD's/Movies. Oppo is optical out to the Dialog which feeds audio to the speakers. Into one of the Phantoms I have the SBT which is connected to Roon/Tidal. SBT does up to 24/192 beautifully via optical. At first I was a bit skeptical about optical and jitter etc but my understanding is the Phantoms correct most of it internally via DSP anyway. Can also do Tidal/music library direct via the Spark app but it is a bit clunky. The optical inputs just switch automagically. One interesting thing is the Phantoms connect to the Dialog via PLC (power line) if they are on the same power board. Nifty. Otherwise you can go ethernet or wifi. I love the sound. It is just so clean, low distortion with the best bass I have ever had in my room. Even if you are not a bass head, this would convert you. Still needs speaker placement etc as per any other speakers and they do have their own stands which are yet to arrive in Oz. I see no need for a subwoofer unless you have a much bigger room. You can just keep turning them up and they just don't have any break up. They do not have the what I call "shoutiness" that some smaller speakers have and are great for TV etc. I am not a big movie watcher so not sure if it will please all in that area. I am toying with the idea of getting an ADC to connect the turntable but am still a bit unsure about it. The nice thing is I can see they can add features through software updates (recently added Spotify connect) and even the little Dialog box which is just a computer could be swapped out for a new one if it added functionality/features. It is a bit of an adjustment going to a full digital system like this as the "tweakability" is almost nil but they make me smile every time I listen and I am digging into the depths of Tidal/Roon throwing all sorts of music at it and I cannot fault them. They may not be hi-fi for some but I think they would surprise many. One thing for sure is they really are an innovative design that I can see will be copied to some extent, it just makes too much sense. Now I need to update the room decor a bit to match the speakers. It really doesn't end does it? I know photos or it didn't happen. Quick video of the woofers having a party! http://stevec.vidmeup.com/view?q=56ce850795d1a.flv

  6. Item: White Devialet Phantom - 1200 Watts - 25KHz to 16Hz - 101dB + Official Cocoon Case Location: Perth, Western Australia (Cockburn, Kwinana, Rockingham area) Price: AUD$3050 for Phantom and Cocoon Case (Can Negotiate) Item Condition: Perfect condition with no dents, marks, or scratches whatsoever. Is four months old now, has not been moved since unboxing. Works perfectly and includes all the original packaging and boxes, including shipping box. Reason for selling: I am moving countries and can not take this with me as much as I'd like to. I have taken a Phantom with me in the past for a long term stay away and it got damaged so Devialet replaced it for me with a brand new one, I don't want to take that risk again of it getting broken so it's best to just sell it. Payment Method: Pickup/Drop-off within W.A. - Cash Extra Info: I am willing to either have you pick it up, or I'll drop it off but I am looking to sell exclusively within Western Australia. This unit uses the newest DSP (the ADH2 chip) and also has the AirPlay hardware which older ones don't. The unit is still covered under Consumer Law within Australia. Pictures:

Item: Devialet Expert 220 Pro Location: Melbourne Price: $8500 Item Condition: Presents as new Reason for selling: Cashflow injection Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I am currently re-arranging my life, and with a wedding on the way plus an impending move the time has come to downsize the luxury items in the household. The cashflow injection will be handy, and although I am not desperate to sell this one, I am putting it out there to see if anyone would like to give it a good home. The unit presents beautifully, and the box is in perfect condition. Featuring Core Infinity upgrade (New DLNA/UPNP board). Warranty is fully transferable via Devialet. Pick up preferred, but will post at buyers expense. Pictures:
  11. I’m thinking my next upgrade could be either a PS Audio DirectStream Junior or a Devialet 200. Both mean I could sell my Chord 2Qute DAC and my Bluesound Node 2 streamer. Devialet means I could also sell my amps. I listen to only Tidal (and a few tracks from a Synology NAS). PS does MQA full unfold. Can anyone provide some advice on this or comparisons? Thanks
  12. Item: Devialet Expert 200 Location: Melb Price: $5000 Item Condition: Excellent except for some marks around the buttons on the remote which were there when i got it. All working perfectly Reason for selling: Wouldnt want to die wondering Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Can post , will cost around $100-130 insured Extra Info: It is complete with packaging, remote and all the bits. The remaining 26 months of warranty will be transferred once purchased. Have really enjoyed my time with this unit, the thing I miss already is just picking up the ipad and choosing a song on Roon. The Dev automatically starts up and starts playing music. Then when it is finished, it turns itself off again. Oh, and it sounds good too! Pictures: Realised I am a good dust photographer so have included some stock pics also. (I cant even see the bloody dust!!)
  13. Item: 2 x Devialet Phantom Silver (RRP $7,180) + Dialog (RRP $499) + Remote (RRP$249) + 2 x White Tree stands (RRP $1198) Total RRP $9,928 Location: Carlingford, Sydney Price: $5,950 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Upgraded and back on the merry go round. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Collection preferred at this stage. Purchased locally in Feb 2016, includes all original boxes, cables accessories etc. This is an emotional sale as I really enjoyed these speakers and I did not upgrade anything in my system for the past 2 years! Prior to that was a different story. Now just about every store I have seen them in stick a single Phantom in the corner somewhere and get people to Spotify to it. Yes you can use it that way but that does not bring out the best in them. I honestly preferred these over the Active LS50s. They are known for their bass but if you feed them properly and bring them out a bit like I did then it is not overblown. Their optical inputs are 24/192 and the Spark software (highest quality option in my opinion) can be loaded on your MAC/PC and with an app you can play your music via wifi. Also can do Spotify Connect, Bluetooth and Tidal is in the Spark app. Also has Internet Radio. The stands a very rigid and the speakers are locked in to them so there is no vibration. Also all cables are run through the middle, very neat solution. The remote is the nicest volume control I have ever used. Sit on your sofa and turn the dial. No comparison to using buttons. I had a little RPi with optical out connected to them for Roon use. Also had the Oppo digital out for TV/movies. With the 2 Phantoms and the Dialog you effectively have 3 inputs. I think you could also enjoy them near-field in a smaller room as they are easy to position. They are real all rounders and just a pleasure to listen to. They are too good to put in the second room with the kids, rather someone appreciate them. https://www.devialet.com/en-au/buy-silver-phantom/ https://www.devialet.com/en-au/accessories-phantom-tree/ https://www.devialet.com/en-au/accessories-phantom-dialog/ https://www.devialet.com/en-au/accessories-phantom-remote/
  14. Item: Devialet Le Expert 120 Location: Melbourne Price: $4,400 (new price is $8,300) Item Condition: As new (unit was ex-demo and I bought it only 3 weeks ago)) Reason for selling: not a good match with my high-efficiency horns Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought this 3 weeks ago as an ex-demo unit. So the warranty is essentially as if the unit were brand new. The cheapest ex-demo price I can see online is from Lifestyle Store which is at $5,800, so this is a considerable saving for a unit that is essentially new Pictures:
  15. I recently purchased a Devialet 200 and would appreciate any recommendations (particularly from Devialet users) for replacement power cords. Bonus points awarded for power cords that allow the sliding cover to remain in place. Thanks Nick
  16. Item: 2 x Devialet Phantom Gold + Dialog + Remote Location: Manly, Sydney Price: $8000 + Postage Item Condition: Perfect, 5 months old. Reason for selling: Moving overseas, need the cash.

  22. Devialet Expert Pro Integrated Amp, Phantom Gold and PMC Speakers 8pm Wednesday 16th August, visitors welcome. Willis Room, City of Whitehorse Offices Maroondah Highway (Whitehorse Road), Nunawading Melway Map 48 Ref G9 Contact: 9437 1249 In 2009, a French manufacturer Devialet, set the audio world on its ear with the introduction of the D-Premier DAC-Integrated Amplifier. This unique component, housed in a slim shiny case the size of a laptop, featured a host of customizations that had never before been incorporated into an audio component. A digital preamplifier section that could accept digital as well as line and phono-level analogue signals; a high-powered digital signal processor (DSP) that could perform real-time processing of the music signals for equalization and room correction; and an innovative amplifier topology Analogue Digital Hybrid (ADH), which set Devialet apart from other Hi-Fi manufacturers. The current line up of amplifiers called Expert Pro, start off with their entry level model Expert 130 Pro which delivers 130Wpc into 6 ohms and goes up to their most powerful model, the Expert 1000 Pro. Leigh Fischer from INTERDYN will be demonstrating the many features of the Devialet amplifier with a pair of PMC fact.12 speakers. With new technology called Speaker Active Matching (SAM) the amplifiers output signal can be optimized for your particular speaker. A testament to the pace of Devialets technical evolution is incorporated in the Phantom speaker. Their active loudspeaker backed with R&D and out-of-the-box thinking sets a path for the future. By design, the Phantom goes against and beyond the existing establishment. Egg like in shape and white only in colour, the technology contained within the Phantom speaker is very impressive. The Gold Phantom will also be demonstrated at the club. Its novel combination of 'Class A' and 'Class D' amplification, 4500W at 108db, and their 'Bass Implosion' technology measuring ruler flat from 20Hz, is the absolute demonstration of Devialets design and engineering. Devialet has firmly cemented its name in the audiophile world. Their integrated amplifiers and Phantom speakers, play host to the most exciting and innovative technologies available in sound reproduction. The future in Hi-Fidelity has arrived.

  24. For our August club meeting we’re very pleased to be able to present Devialet and Sonus Faber. Our Devialet for the day is being kindly provided by club member Andrew Baldwin. The Sonus Faber speakers are being kindly provided by the Lifestyle Store in North Parramatta. (Refer to https://www.lifestylestore.com.au/.) Alex Wilson from the Lifestyle Store will present the equipment. The Devialet has many technological advances. One of many is SAM (Speaker Amplifier Matching). This Devialet functionality tailors the signal to better match the speakers it is driving. Alex and Andrew will explain and demonstrate the SAM function of the Devialet. Note that Devialet products are also available through the Lifestyle Store. My brief search through the club records suggests we’ve never before presented Sonus Faber speakers. And I’m certain we’ve never had Devialet presented. So this holds great promise to be a very interesting and enjoyable club meeting. The featured system on the day will be as follows: Sonus Faber Olympica III Floor Standing Speakers: Taken from the Lifestyle website… “Sonus faber was established in 1983 and produces premium handcrafted and beautifully designed loudspeakers. Based in the historic city of Vicenza, Italy, Sonus faber's designs incorporate finely polished wood, leather and metal to create exquisite works of audio art. All Sonus faber loudspeakers blend science and craftsmanship to deliver emotion and music. The Sonus faber name lies behind a tale of a passion for music so deep, that it goes beyond passive listening, giving life to something new.

The second half of the music sessions will be our popular BYO. Members and guests are welcome to offer music to share with us all. So bring along your favourite music on CD/SACD or USB flash drives (sorry, no vinyl). All we ask is that the music and recordings be interesting. We'll ask you to tell us a little about the artist/recording before it is played. Tracks over 6 minutes will be faded out, to give everyone a fair go. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned veteran, you will have the opportunity to listen, learn and share your experiences with others. Feel free to come and hear the capabilities of the system, or to just share the experience with like-minded music lovers in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Guests are welcome – we are a very friendly club so you don't need to know anyone to join us for an afternoon of fine music and sound.
