Phantom II 98 dB Opéra de Paris

The shockingly small wireless speaker, adorned with signature gold leaf side plates.

Monumental compactness and power.

Phantom II Opéra de Paris is not only an unparalleled piece of sound engineering. It's also an ode to one of the world’s greatest cultural institutions. It embodies the vision of excellence shared by a 350-year-old cultural maverick and a 21st-century tech company that’s just getting started.

Our partnership with the Opéra de Paris gave life to an immersive Devialet Area in the heart of the Garnier Opera House, as well as an exclusive Phantom collection. Hand-adorned with gold leaf by prestigious Les Ateliers Gohard, who also restores the gold of the Palais Garnier, the collection was inspired by a vision of excellence and dedication to French musical heritage and savoir-faire.

Compact yet immense. Phantom II 98 dB speaker is a feat of sound engineering, delivering unreasonable power. The only ultra-compact speaker capable of delivering high fidelity and physical impact, whatever volume you listen at. Touch controls give you total command of Phantom II with a single stroke. By stretching size and performance beyond reasonable limits, Devialet engineers have brought to life Phantom II with its hugely addictive, implosive sound. 

Bearing the Phantom II 98 dB Opéra de Paris | Devialet signature, the side plates are gilded with Moon Gold, a precious and stainless palladium-yellow gold alloy.


Shared vision of excellence.

A landmark French institution meets the new wave of tech innovation in France. It was such a great dream that it was difficult to believe it would ever come true. With ambition and determination, Devialet pursued it for almost three years. The Paris Opera fully accepted to entertain our dream, based on a shared quest for sonic perfection and strong ties to France's musical heritage. 


Gold leaf side plates.

For the Paris Opera, Devialet conceived a special edition of Phantom, an outstanding piece of engineering protected by more than 100 patents. Inspired by the iconic gilded interiors of the space, Phantom Opéra de Paris | Devialet features the Paris Opera logo and gold leaf side plates finished by Ateliers Gohard, who also restores the gold of the Opéra Garnier. The master gilders at Ateliers Gohard finish the Phantom’s gold leaf side plates according to time-honoured methods. Each gold leaf is applied by hand for a unique, irreplaceable patina. Heritage techniques demand absolute perfection the first time around; once the leaf has been applied, it cannot be removed. 


An entire orchestra.

The Devialet sound discovery area opened at the Palais Garnier in 2017, ideally located in the west area of the Grand Vestibule. This space has been designed as a minimal setting with sophisticated details, and overseen by the chief architect of France's historic monuments and the regional directorate of cultural affairs. Within this space, the Phantoms Opéra de Paris | Devialet shine as exceptional technological masterpieces. Guests will witness not one Phantom or Phantom pair, but an entire orchestra of 16 Phantoms delivering the purest, most profound emotion that sound can possibly deliver within the walls of a venerable temple to sound itself.




Seriously sophisticated.

Exceptional things really do come in small packages. Phantom II is the first ultra-compact home speaker designed to take you deeper into sound. A most intense concentration of advanced technology delivering audiophile-grade playback. Find out what you're both capable of.


Made in France.

Phantom is a product of its French heritage in every sense. Each Phantom is designed and manufactured in France. A dedicated team ensures that the same rigour we put into research is carried through to the very final step. A fully automated assembly line leaves nothing to chance. A short circuit and limited packaging make our operations more sustainable.


Anatomical anomaly.

Years of research and development, 160+ patents filed, and 100 specialists in aerodynamics, automotive, acoustics, and mechanical engineering. That's all it took to perfect a system capable of pushing the limits of physics, and deliver standard-setting performance. Zero distortion, zero saturation, zero background noise.

If your music appears to come to life, don't worry. That's just Phantom's woofers at work. Breaking with the norm, Phantom’s design conceals the loudspeaker mechanics behind two immaculate domes. Press play and watch the mesmerizing dance that unfolds before you. A blend of finesse and strength, the visual effect is as immediate as the the physical one. A glimpse behind a frame unveils convex woofer membranes that increase overall acoustic pressure and volume for added power. It’s sound that really moves. And moves you, too.

The Devialet App: your sound, your way.

Power this unreasonable requires some control. Set up your Phantom, fine tune your settings, and stay up to date, all via the Devialet App. An intuitive companion, the app lets you customize your Phantom experience: setting up your Phantom, adjusting latency for A/V, activating Standby Mode or customizing bass for Night Mode.

Your music, where you want it.

Sync your entire home in symphony or stream something different in every room thanks to your Devialet App. With Multiroom, there are now even more ways to enjoy. Multi-Zone Play lets you group any Phantoms and feel the sound sing throughout your space. Single-Zone Play lets you mix and match your Phantoms in a single space for a next-level sound experience. Individual Play lets you have jazz playing in the kitchen while a podcast is being devoured on the couch. And everyone can control their own volume and manage zones right from the Devialet App. For iOS and macOS customers, Phantom also gives you the option to enjoy a multiroom set up through AirPlay 2.


Instant connection.

Whether you’re used to Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, optical or analog, Phantom's architecture lets you have it your way. AirPlay. Spotify Connect. UPnP. Get straight to the music you love.

High-res.

Phantom now combines industry-leading sound engineering with more high-resolution capabilities in order to deliver exceptional listening experiences. Along with UPnP and the optical input, Phantom is also Roon Ready, giving all Phantom users ways to enjoy 24-Bit Hi-Res audio like never before.

AirPlay 2
Apple users can enjoy an additional layer of control over their Phantom with AirPlay 2®. Create a custom multiroom set-up by directly streaming audio from the control device (iPhone, iPad, or Mac) to numerous AirPlay 2-connected speakers, including Phantom.

Spotify Connect
Spotify users can stream their favourite playlists on their favourite speaker with the help of Spotify Connect. All that's needed? The app and a Wi-Fi connection.

UPnP
With Universal Plug and Play, or UPnP, users can switch to a third-party application to play music hosted on their local networks. In other words, with the help of a UPnP controller application, Phantom is able to communicate with an external hard drive.

Roon Ready
In addition to UPnP and the analog/optical input, Phantom owners are able to enjoy 24-bit-sample-rate music using Roon's streaming protocol. Phantom connects to Roon seamlessly, without any configuration steps, allowing users to enjoy perfect hi-res sound with ease.



Expand your horizons.

The only thing better than one Phantom? Two. In stereo, Phantom's soundstage expands even further and listening takes on a new dimension as the speakers dance in absolute synchronicity. More extreme, more powerful, more exhilarating. It is an unthinkably immersive experience.



Engineering excellence.

Devialet thrives on end-to-end innovation — hardware, software, design inside and out, manufacturing — to offer ever-enhanced acoustics. In fact, to create Phantom, we have had to build our own plant, hire talents who were used to unique challenges in other industries, conceive our own robotics and quality control.

Intelligence Processor.

Phantom includes our powerful Devialet Intelligent Processor which helps deliver improved sound quality. Phantom's signal processing and amplification performance (ADH®, SAM®, Magic Wire, Class A, DAC) is embedded in a SoC (system on a chip), which was custom designed for optimal integration. The results? Enhanced heat dissipation for optimal performance at any volume, better energy efficiency, and barely measurable distortion, saturation, or noise.

The Devialet aesthetic.

In crafting Phantom’s overall look, we focused on function and an obsessive attention to detail. Some call it French savoir-faire and art de vivre. We view this as honouring craftsmanship and pleasure equally. Beyond its iconic spherical shape, Phantom also offers a range of colours, materials, and finishes that can stand out or blend in.

In designing Phantom, we immediately knew we needed to create a spherical object. It's the ideal acoustic shape for 360° diffusion and performance. But there's a reason no other speaker looks like Phantom: it's a challenging shape to work with. Through countless iterations, we were able to reconcile acoustics and aesthetics, giving life to a speaker that that would seduce all senses. 

When seen from the front, Phantom's compactness is unmissable. As you make your way around the sides, the elongated body and side plates are revealed. By stretching out the curvature, we were able to create a light, harmonious feel without sacrificing on loudspeaker power. Designed for longevity, Phantom’s body makes it more robust and performant, ensuring sound is unaltered even at higher temperatures.
