As wireless speakers are now the norm it’s easy to forget that they’re a relatively recent invention. Audio technology has come on leaps and bounds in a very small amount of time, and in my lifetime alone we have evolved past cassette tapes and CDs into a new era of mp3, literally changing how we listen to music forever.
Of course, whilst the evolution of audio seems almost unending, there are a number of innovators who always take things to the next level, case in point Devialet. Having dedicated their expertise to creating only the purest expressions of sound with their speakers, Devialet have now become one of the most renowned names in the industry, each of their creations seamlessly submerging you into a crystal clear world of audio wherever you place them in your home.
Among their creations there is one that truly breaks the mould - the Phantom. Able to conjure ultra dense sound with a physical impact, this wireless speaker is completely unique in that, for the first time ever, you can experience audio with absolutely zero distortion, saturation or even background noise.
Whilst many speakers have claimed to offer the same level of clarity in the past, there has never been a wireless piece of technology with the same level of smooth sound. This is due to Devialet’s own technology that has all but revolutionised the audio industry a step further, the ADH and HBI.
The Analog Digital Hybrid (ADH) is perhaps the most instrumental part of letting the Phantom achieve such crystal clear audio, and on closer inspection it’s a rather clever piece of tech indeed. Combining the sophistication of the Analog amplification (Class A) with the power and compact nature of Digital amplification (Class D) the tech allows the speakers to amplify the sound signal from a device with unmatchable clarity and transparency, making all of your favourite music sound the best that it can all without any wires.
The Heart Bass Implosion (HBI) is, despite sounding like an amazing heavy metal band, equally responsible for the wondrous level of sound. Developed solely for the Phantom, this piece of technology is the world’s first to allow extremely low frequency sounds to be played from such a compact piece of equipment.
Working together with the ADH and the two inbuilt hermetic woofers that function under high pressure, the HBI helps to amplify and sharpen the sounds of the ultra dense audio created by the lateral domes within the speakers, reproducing levels of sound at the edge of infrasound (16Hz.)
If the audio innovation isn’t enough, another aspect that the Devialet Phantom has on its side is its ultra cool design. Created to look and sound like the future of audio, the Phantom is sleek and sophisticated, a space age piece of technology that has paved a new way for audio straight into the future.
A speaker both impossible to fault in sound quality and entirely transportable for your pleasure, Devialet’s Phantom is a creation that is likely to define the digital age of audio. The only thing that remains to do now is to make a playlist worthy of the sound quality – we suggest something that will really test the system’s limits, the bass is truly out of this world.
