Devialet Introduces a New Entry Into Its Phantom Line To say that Devialet’s Phantom speakers turn heads is an understatement. Their unique appearance can be a love hate relationship for some. However, the one thing that everyone can agree on is that Devialet’s speakers sound incredible. Devialet has recently launched a new entry in their line called the Phantom Elevate. This new speaker has a few notable improvements including a new lower price tag that may make buying one of these heavyweight speakers more palatable. While the Devialet Phantom Elevate’s outward appearance is sure to garner copious amounts of attention, it’s the Elevate’s sound that will most likely turn heads. Devialet’s previous White Phantom speaker received high marks for its sound quality, but the Elevate on paper, appears to surpass it in a couple categories. The Elevate has received a significant power upgrade boasting 1200 watts of power. The original Phantom had a max power output of about 750 watts. The Phantom Elevate can also play louder than its predecessor with it being able to reach a decibel level of about 101 dB compared to 99 dB for the Phantom. The one thing that you instantly notice about the Elevate is its round bass drivers that are parked on the right and left sides of the speaker. When music is playing these two drivers move in tandem. This motion is what enables Devialet speakers, like the Elevate, to produce incredible low frequencies with very little distortion. The Elevate also makes use of Devialet’s next generation Analog Digital Hybrid (ADH) technology, ADH2. According to Devialet, the ADH “delivers the sophistication of analog amplification together with all the power and compactness of digital amplification.” The Devialet Elevate supports Bluetooth and WiFi and courtesy of its Spark app, you can stream music from iOS, Android, PC, and Mac devices. If you hook-up the Elevate to a Devialet Dialog hub, you can make it part of a multi-room audio system. The Dialog acts as a centralized hub, that allows you to have as many as 24 Devialet Phantom or Elevate speakers connected simultaneously. With all of its upgrades you would expect the Phantom Elevate to cost more than the original Phantom, but it doesn’t. In fact, the new Elevate is actually the lowest priced of Devialet’s Phantom speakers. It carries a price tag of only $1,690, compared to the original White Phantom’s price of $1,900. In order to entice buyers to try-out their speakers, Devialet offers a 45-day in-home trial so that you can demo any of the speakers in the Phantom line. If you’re not satisfied, you can return the speakers to Devialet for a full refund.
