The Devialet Phantom Theater home theater system is based on the manufacturer’s professional range of speakers, namely the Devialet Phantom II Custom, the Devialet Phantom I 103 dB Custom and the Devialet Phantom I 108 dB Custom. These speakers adapt to professional connectivity standards, including support for AoIP digital audio transport (Dante or AES67 protocol). This network cable connection ensures a perfectly stable digital audio signal transmission, without any latency. Devialet also offers an Ethernet to optical adapter to make the classic Devialet Phantom I speakers compatible with the Dante protocol.

The JBL Synthesis SDP-58 preamplifier is compatible with the Dante protocol to drive the Devialet Phantom Theater speakers.

As part of this unique home theater system, the Devialet Phantom receives the signal from a preamplifier compatible with the Dante protocol. For example, you can opt for the brand-new JBL Synthesis SDP-58, which decodes the Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and Auro-3D immersive audio formats. The system configuration, including the assignment of a dedicated channel to each speaker, is done via a web interface on a computer.

With 9 Devialet Phantom speakers, the Devialet Phantom Theater 9 home theater system combines power, immersive sound and aesthetics.

All this power and beauty comes at a price, which, unfortunately, is very high.

If your budget is more modest or if you want a system that is easier to integrate in your living room, you can also turn to the Devialet Dione soundbar, which is Dolby Atmos 5.1.2 compatible.
