The French company has just unveiled its new Devialet Dione Opéra de Paris soundbar, part of a collaboration with the Opéra national de Paris! After the Devialet Phantom I and II speakers, and more recently the Devialet Mania portable Bluetooth speaker, the brand’s first soundbar is now available with a magnificent finish inspired by the gilding of the Palais Garnier. These exquisite speakers are described as “a feat of visual and acoustic perfection”.

The collaboration between Devialet and the Paris Opera continues with the new Devialet Dione Opéra de Paris finish.

The collaboration between the high-fidelity specialist and the French opera and ballet company began in 2017. Initially, this luxury partnership took the form of an 80m² Devialet sales area in the Palais Garnier, and was later extended to include high-end equipment. Combining minimalism and sophisticated details, the “Opera de Paris” finish available for the different speakers promises to look impressive in a living room, a bedroom, or any other room in the house. The speakers become an exceptional decorative object to be displayed in your home!

The Devialet Dione Opéra de Paris soundbar

In recent years, the French company has continued to maintain and expand its catalog, including its first soundbar released last March, but also its first portable Bluetooth speaker revealed a few weeks ago. Like other Devialet equipment, the Devialet Dione is beautifully adorned in keeping with the Paris Opera. Its central top plate is covered with 22-carat gold leaf, while the sides and the sphere have an elegant gray/beige color. This choice of colors softens the features of the soundbar, offering a refined and graceful aesthetic. A harmonious look to enhance your TV setup!

The very first Devialet Dione soundbar is a Dolby Atmos 5.1.2 compatible model. Designed to create immersive sound, it features 17 drivers and 950-watt RMS ADH amplification. The icing on the cake: the central sphere rotates 360° to adapt its position to that of the soundbar (wall-mounted or placed on the TV cabinet). Intuitive and versatile, it finds its place alongside a television to immerse the viewer in the heart of the film’s action, but also to fully enjoy music.

Devialet Phantom Opéra de Paris speakers

The partnership between the two French companies began with the creation of the Devialet Phantom I Opéra de Paris connected speakers. It is described as an “ode to one of the world’s most famous cultural institutions”. Indeed, the speaker is inspired by the iconic gilding of the Paris Opera, its sides gilded with 22-carat moongold leaf, a precious stainless alloy of palladium and yellow gold. Each enclosure is gilded by the Gohard workshops, which are responsible for restoring the gold leaf in the Palais Garnier. One by one, the gold leaves are hand applied for a unique look. The more compact Devialet Phantom II Opéra de Paris has the same visual identity.
