Devialet Phantom Speaker
Just in time for Christmas, if Santa has some funds left on his credit card. French audio experts Devialet offer you the best wireless speakers in the world and the "quality of analogue and the power of digital.” When you ask for the best Bluetooth speakers in the shop, this is what they’ll show you.
Looking like a collaboration between Stanley Kubrick and Steve Jobs, there’s only one button and that’s the power button. Devialet secured 102 patents in the making of this solid, plug and play unit.
Unfortunately the Phantom costs $2000. But don’t worry, if you really want to brag and fill your Camp’s Bay mansion and neighbour’s property with crystal-clear sounding Katy Perry, there’s also a new Gold Phantom (with side panels covered in 22-carat rose gold) for $3000.
The White Phantom pumps out up to 99dB, 105dB from the Silver Phantom. The Gold Phantom provides 4500 watts of power and can deliver 108dB of sound. 'Devialet-exclusive high-excursion bass drivers’ makes sure that there’s also no hassle dealing with your Skrillex dubstep bass drops. It handles sub-bass at 16hz, all the way to the other end of the scale with treble at 25Khz (14Hz to 27kHz on the Gold Phantom), which is said to be very good if you know what that actually means in practical terms.
A Phantom Spark app controls your streaming services, and volume is controlled by your music input device. Connect up to twenty four of the units (throughout your mansion) via their Dialog Hub.
If you’re in New York City, check out their newly opened flagship store to hear the speakers in action.
