4,500W Gold Devialet Phantom Wireless Speaker

stereo phantom opera 4500w

4,500 Watts of Jewelry Speaker

When it comes to wireless audio speakers, there is not much that can compete with French audio brand Devialet, both in terms of quality and price. Priced $600 above it’s silver counterpart, Devialet Phantom promises to provide a 4,500 W musical experience, all from the insides of a small round piece.

Technically, Phantom is able to reproduce sounds in a 14Hz – 27Khz frequency – practically, we won’t find out too soon, as it’s past the capabilities of an audio CD and out of reach for human ears. Compare to previous versions of the Phantom, Devialet rose the power from what was already an insane 3,000W to an absolutely mind bending 4,500W. The result translates in about 108 decibels, more than some small rock concerts are able to provide.

The Phantom lives up to its name; gold insertions are to be found around the speaker. If you are not a fan of WiFi technology, you can still play music through the speaker by Bluetooth or optical cable connection. We’ll dream a little and say you can even obtain stereo sound by acquiring a second Devialet Phantom; that is, if you are high of $12,000.

We agree, this isn’t your everyday wireless speaker – it’s more like the Bugatti of the line. However, for those willing to get jetplane taking off kind of sound power while grinning at gold insertions, this piece is probably suitable for your 50 square meters living room.

Ask an expert, new products, devialet unveils gold phantom 4500-watt speaker.

' src=

Devialet today announced Gold Phantom , which claims to be the most extreme self contained speaker ever made. It boasts a maximum volume of 108db SPL — equivalent to a live rock concert — enabled by 4,500 Watts of peak power with a ultra-low THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) level of .0005%. On top of that, it is said to play sounds beyond the human range of hearing (14Hz – 27kHz), which is actually bat territory.

Devialet Gold Phantom Middle View

Gold Phantom now represents the highest-end of the Devialet Phantom line-up that follows the original Phantom (750 Watts, $1,990) and Silver Phantom (3,000 Watts, $2,390). The ultra luxurious, 22 kt Rose Gold-finished  stand-alone wireless loudspeaker is driven by a new core ADH (Analog Digital Hybrid amplification) and features a new titanium tweeter.

All Devialet Phantom speakers are exactly the same size and weight 25 lbs (11.4 kg) and stand less than a foot tall. All models include built-in wireless Bluetooth, but the Gold model adds AirPlay. The major difference among models is the amplification and the maximum volume. The original Phantom achieved 99 dB SPL at 1 meter, Silver bumps it up to 105 db, and Gold hits 108 dB — the equivalent to sticking your head next to a running chainsaw (please don’t try). Yet, because sound doubles in volume every 10 dB, one could argue the Gold could play music almost twice as loud as the original Phantom. I haven’t heard any model yet, so I can’t say what is perceived, other than report back the specs.

Devialet Gold Phantom Packaging

Price and Availability The Devialet Gold Phantom will be available at a retail price of $2,990 , with pre-orders starting today on www.devialet.com and shipping beginning (appropriately) on Bastille Day, the 14th of July 2016.

Devialet Phantom review

Devialet’s near-perfect $2,000 speaker turns wireless audio on its head.

Ryan Waniata

“Devialet’s Phantom is the finest all-in-one wireless speaker money can buy.”
  • Pure and lyrical upper register
  • Best-in-class bass response
  • Thrilling dynamic expression
  • Powerful, distortion free sound
  • Clear and wonderfully present detail
  • Volume control not granular enough
  • Heavy as a rock

French audio maker Devialet recently released the latest in its luxurious line of wireless speakers, the new Phantom Gold. Thanks in part to its near $3,000 asking price, the speaker received no shortage of attention. But the Gold is essentially just a supercharged version of prior Phantom models, which now come in three flavors: Gold ($2,990), Silver ($2,390), and the original Phantom ($2,000).

Devialet, which made a name for itself with a line of award-winning audiophile amplifiers, has spared no expense and left no hyperbolic phrase unturned to market what it calls “a new category of audio products.” Phrases like “1,000 times superior to current systems” and a replacement for “all existing systems” leave no doubt that Devialet has laid it all on the line.

With all the spectacle, we couldn’t help but wonder, can the Phantom actually be this good? After all, how could it be, really? We set out to find out.

Out of the box

The Phantom makes a dramatic first impression thanks to its other-worldly design, carved from plastic and aluminum into a sonic spheroid unlike anything else on the market. Perhaps even more remarkable than its futuristic look, however, is its absolutely titanic weight. Once you’ve lugged the box inside, pulling the gleaming white orb from its bed of thick foam feels more like lifting a miniature jet turbine than a wireless speaker, amounting to 26 pounds of dense, hard-shelled technology.

There’s really not much else in the box, besides everyone’s least favorite feature, the thick yellow power cable. The curry-colored eyesore is a puzzling addition to the package, marring what is otherwise the slickest looking French import since the Dassault Rafale fighter jet.

The most notable thing about the Phantom’s setup is the way the piston drivers on the sides expand and compress when you fire the system up. It makes it seem as though the speaker were about to take flight back to the mother ship. Connecting the system to Wi-Fi is standard fare, requiring you to simply download the Spark app and follow the same instructions as virtually every wireless speaker, setting aside Sonos’ utterly simple single-button initiation.

Features and design

Heavy as a block of lead, and shaped like a cross between a stormtrooper helmet and an alien spacecraft, there’s no doubt the Phantom is a signature design piece. But intriguing as it is on the outside, the Phantom hides its best features inside its eggshell exterior. Under the hood live a myriad of technologies, as well as a laundry list of patents, inventions, and proprietary design features — each seeming to tow its own stack of marketing hyperbole. It’s like the iPhone of speakers.

The Phantom can practically blow the doors off any room.

While the Silver and Gold versions push the wattage to nuclear levels (at 3,000 and 4,500 watts of peak power respectively) the original Phantom’s 750 watt power plant is astronomical in its own right. The system’s sound pressure level (SPL) tops out at 99dB at one meter, placing it somewhere between a motorcycle engine and a jet takeoff from the runway. The Phantom’s 26 pound weight makes it portable in only the loosest sense, but the speaker’s 10-inch width and height and 13-inch depth take up very little space on the mantle.

Nuzzled into its laser-cannon front face are custom aluminum drivers, including a small tweeter and a midrange driver, while dual aluminum woofers push those piston-like shells at the speaker’s sides. The Phantom’s claimed frequency response — a dazzling 16Hz-25khz — will no doubt cause audioholics to perk up in disbelief and collectively ask, “How is that much bass even possible from such a small speaker?”

It all starts with the Phantom’s pressurized aluminum core, which is hermetically sealed with a claimed 1.2 tons of pressure. Those piston-like “hermetic woofers” at the sides push in and out with over 66 pounds of force to create what Devialet calls Heart Bass Implosion (HBI), designed to produce a “unique ultra-dense sound with physical impact.” While the human ear can only hear down to 20Hz, sounds below that are thought to create perceivable variations in air pressure. In other words, audible or not, this thing can practically blow the doors off any room.

HBI is just one of the many acronyms on the Phantom’s resume. There’s also Active Cospherical Engine (ACE) technology, a fancy way of describing the Phantom’s spherical shape. Devialet says it’s intended to mimic the “thrusting sphere of Olson” (Harry Olson was a pioneer of acoustics design), which the company calls the “perfect acoustical shape.”

The system also uses an Analog Digital Hybrid (ADH) amplifier, meant to mix “the sophistication” of Class A analog amplifiers with the minute size of Class D digital amps, as well as Speaker Active Matching (SAM). Brought along from Devialet’s amplifier line, SAM is the company’s proprietary DSP technology designed to precisely adapt the sound laid down in the studio to match each of the Phantom’s drivers in real time.

The system offers both Wi-Fi and Ethernet connections, as well as an optical input for plugging in directly. Spotify, Deezer, and Tidal are all supported, and you can also play tracks wirelessly from your phone, computer, or storage drive. Through Devialet’s proprietary Spark app ( Android | iOS ), you can even go multiroom with the Phantom — provided you can lay out the dough for several of these speakers. While the Phantom is designed for omnidirectional sound, it can also be stereo paired with a twin, though the required Dialog Hub will ramp up the starting price to $4,309 total.

Other features include a Texas Instruments DAC supporting 24-bit/192kHz files in virtually all varieties, an 800MHz ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore dual-core processor


With 750 watts of power, a hermetically sealed interior, and military grade construction, we were fully prepared for the Phantom to annihilate our listening room with shockwaves of skull rattling sound. And indeed, the system is capable of brain-melting sonic assaults of distortion-free audio, fit to rattle your windows and shake the door off its hinges.

What we weren’t prepared for, however, is the unparalleled sonic intimacy the Phantom provides, ushering forth rich and weighty detail, pinpoint-accurate transients, expansive dynamic expression, and glistening recreations of each guitar tone, vocal line, or snare snap. From the thick tape hiss you can make out in Brian Wilson’s classic Wouldn’t It Be Nice to the spun gold of Chris Thile’s nimble mandolin tightropes, the Phantom’s unbridled clarity translates into a listening experience more akin to a pair of audiophile headphones than a wireless speaker.

That means you don’t just hear the acoustic guitarist’s string stop, you actually hear the palm of his hand release from the body of the guitar as he pulls it away. It means sparkling vocals so clear you’ll hear lyrics you’ve missed in 100 listens. In fact, the speaker does so many things so well, it’s hard to choose a favorite moment. Is it the woody rattle of the bass strings from Nickel Creek’s Out of the Woods ? Is it the tactile rainbow of latin percussion in Snarky Puppy’s Go , or the fiery crunch of the electric guitar that leaps forth in Muse’s Drones ? All are contenders.

That said, it’s not all gravy atop this $2,000 biscuit. While the speaker does render sound in all directions, its mono soundstage can occasionally get claustrophobic, putting a snag in your audiophile reverie. The Phantom’s lack of stereo imaging can feel even more pronounced than other wireless speakers, partly because it’s so capable in other sound spectrums. In some songs, instruments sound a little cluttered and pressed together, as if each track is swimming against the current, competing for its own spotlight at the front of the soundstage.

The Phantom’s brain-melting sonic assault is fit to rattle your windows and shake the door off its hinges.

Another point of contention is the lack of granular control via the Spark app. With a machine so sensitive and potent, we expect total dominion over the volume. Instead, the speaker can get caught between being too soft or too loud. The lack of EQ control is also disappointing — especially at this price.

Still, the Phantom’s talents elsewhere tend to make up for its shortcomings — especially when you crank up the volume and set off this atom bomb. In short, no other personal wireless speaker we’ve heard comes even close to the thunderous power unleashed by the Phantom at full force. While not as robust as, say, a traditional 12-inch subwoofer, this speaker can give your favorite Too Short joint the full 60Hz treatment, thumping with dance-club authority, while the upper register punches through with stark clarity. That goes for your most raucous rock anthems or your most boisterous orchestral plumes, as well. As loud as you can push it, the Phantom simply doesn’t distort. And though its side pistons may buzz and gyrate, the Phantom holds steady as a rock, creating virtually zero surface rumble.

By now you’re probably saying, “could the Phantom really be ‘1,000 times better’ than other wireless speakers?” The short answer? No freaking way. The latest Sonos Play 5 ($500)   and Bowers & Wilkins’ Zeppelin Air ($550)  both put up enough grit to discount Devialet’s wild marketing hyperbole — a good reason to dispatch with such bragging.

Yet the Phantom still emerges as the clear winner without breaking a sweat. The Zeppelin Air does a fine job delivering some of the bright and pointed detail the Phantom can produce, especially in the midrange. But the Phantom’s fluid and lyrical upper register far outshines it in most examples. And when it comes to heavy bass, it’s not even a contest. The Zeppelin drops out long before the Phantom, abandoning a grand canyon of peaks and valleys below.

Conversely, the Sonos does a decent job carving out the bass the Zeppelin ignores. It doesn’t reach as low as the Phantom, and the resonance of the bass itself is far less refined, but it gives you plenty of boom for your buck. The Sonos comes up short in music’s finer subtleties, however, unable to compete with many of the Phantom’s best sonic qualities. Then again, if you’ve never heard the magnification of each sonic moment the Phantom can render, will you miss it? For $1,500, the answer for most listeners is no.

In other words, if you can’t afford to buy one, you shouldn’t even listen to the Phantom. When it comes to quality wireless sound on a budget, ignorance truly is bliss.

Warranty and updates

The speaker also includes Devialet’s EVO system, which supports automatic upgrades to help future-proof the speaker.  In addition to the EVO updating system, the Phantom also comes with a two-year warranty .

As promised, Devialet’s Phantom sets a new milestone in wireless multiroom audio. Whether it’s rendering earth-shaking bass or putting a soft touch on the finest of details, the speaker is an industry leader in almost every category — including price.

There are better ways to blow $2,000, inside and outside the world of audio. But if you can afford to drop that kind of cash without feeling the sting, the Phantom is the finest all-in-one wireless speaker money can buy.

Tivoli Audio’s Model One desktop radio became an instant classic the moment it arrived. With its furniture-grade wood cabinet, delightfully retro analog knobs for tuning, volume, and source selection, and its warm, rich sound, it remains a popular choice for folks who want a simple and elegant source of music and radio.

So when Tivoli announced in 2017 that it was going to update the Model One for the digital age, I had high hopes that it would be just as satisfying to use and listen to as the original. Unfortunately, that didn’t turn out to be the case. A poorly executed mobile app resulted in a confusing and limited set of streaming options, which ultimately undermined the whole “digital” aspect of the $350 Model One Digital (MOD).

As part of a news release celebrating IKEA's Red-Dot Design Award accomplishments for 2019, the Swedish furniture designer has published two new photos of its upcoming Symfonisk speaker, a whole-home Wi-Fi speaker built by Sonos. The photos give us yet another glimpse at what IKEA has promised will be a speaker that's priced to make it accessible to many.

The official unveiling of the Symfonisk is slated for April 9, 2019, in Milan. The new photos don't add much to what we know about Symfonisk, but given that there are only days until the unveiling, it's clear that what we're seeing is indeed the final product -- or extremely close to it -- and that earlier photos were also very representative of what we can expect in-store.

Why you can trust What Hi-Fi? Our expert team reviews products in dedicated test rooms, to help you make the best choice for your budget. Find out more about how we test.

Despite having welcomed many Devialet Phantom wireless speakers into our test rooms over the past few years, we still find ourselves struck by the beauty and bass reproduction of the latest iteration.

This new flagship Phantom I brings with it a simplification and expansion of the iconic, brand-defining line: the compact Phantom Reactor is now ‘Phantom II’ (in 95dB, 98dB and special-edition Opéra de Paris models), above which sits the ‘Phantom I’ (in 103dB, 108dB and Opéra de Paris variants). 

Devialet has now introduced a £349 ($350) Arch configurable connectivity hub for Phantom too, giving owners the option to add sources (including a turntable) either via its built-in phono stage and RCA line-level inputs, or alternatively two coaxial digital inputs.

Without that accessory, the Phantom I is reliant upon a network, with support for AirPlay 2 , Spotify Connect , UPnP and Roon (both up to 24-bit/96KHz) over ethernet or wi-fi, although there is Bluetooth onboard, as well as an optical input (up to 24-bit/96KHz) at the rear.

Power output 1100W

Airplay 2 Yes

Spotify Connect Yes

Bluetooth Yes

Roon Ready Yes

Dimensions (hwd) 25.5 x 25.2 x 34.2cm

Weight 11.4kg

The decibel ratings attached to the names represent their maximum sound pressure level at one metre – something that sets Devialet Phantoms apart not only from one another but most of their competition, considering they can go between the approximate relative loudness of a lawnmower and a chainsaw. 

The sample on test here is the Phantom I 108 dB, which is available in dark chrome or white/gold finishes and covers a claimed frequency range of 14Hz to 27kHz. The Phantom I 103 dB, meanwhile, comes in light chrome or matte black and encompasses a slightly narrower bandwidth (16Hz to 25kHz).

Many of Devialet’s patented technologies are present in the new Phantom I, including its ADH (Analog Digital Hybrid) amplification, designed to combine the benefits of Class A analogue (high performance) and Class D (high efficiency and power) designs.

At the risk of using too many acronyms, HBI (Heart Bass Implosion) represents Devialet’s efforts to produce deep, impactful bass from the compact enclosure; its ACE (Active Cospherical Engine) design takes care of outputting sound evenly in various directions from the spherical chassis; and Speaker Active Matching (SAM) processing works to optimise the signal and performance in real-time. 

Such patented technologies have been part of the Phantom line-up from the start, but the new Phantom I aims to take performance further with a next-generation system-on-chip and improved thermal dissipation (it’s four times more energy-efficient than the previous model).

The Phantom’s iconic, visually striking spherical design, which we’ve likened to an ‘Alien bug’ and ‘Storm Trooper’s lunchbox’ lives on, but not totally unchanged. It’s now like a miniature jet engine, with a matte finish, new signature side panels and LED status lights at the rear – it’s eye-catching in the best way possible.

The Phantom I comes with a new puck-like remote that’s as other-worldly and premium as the speaker aesthetic and price deserves, too. We like how you rotate the whole outer ring to change volume (you can also play/pause and skip tracks with the central touchpad), although ergonomically it doesn’t feel all that natural in the hand to do so.

The alternative is Devialet’s dedicated app, which provides similar playback functions, as well as settings such as ‘AV sync’ for reducing latency if you’re using the Phantom I with your TV via its optical input, and ‘Night mode’ for sucking some of the bass out of the performance (which it does effectively, too). 

Somewhat disappointingly, the app doesn’t also serve as a UPnP streaming controller, so those wanting to access local or networked files or music services will need to use the paid-for Roon platform (the Phantom I is Roon Ready), or download another third-party UPnP app such as BubbleUPnP (Android) and mconnect Player (Android, iOS), both of which are perfectly usable free apps. 

We’re also a little let down by the app’s imperfect multi-room and stereo pairing experience, which in our testing proves occasionally flaky by not displaying the connection, or doing so but not initiating through the speakers. If you’ve spent several thousands on a multi-room wireless speaker set-up, you are perhaps entitled to expect seamlessness.

You also expect a ‘wow’ performance, which in some areas the Phantom I delivers. This is one of the clearest, most bassy and broadest-sounding single-chassis wireless speakers we've come across since the previous full-sized Phantom we tested.

For a wireless speaker of its size, Devialet’s latest can, like the iterations before it, excavate a bass line. The jaunty electro-funk lows underpinning Childish Gambino’s 19:10 are deep and impactful – and visually represented by the enthusiastically pumping side-firing drivers. Play something denser such as 65daysofstatic's Retreat! Retreat!, and it’s not afraid to get down and dirty with the cacophony of drums and electrics while ensuring they don’t bog down the whole presentation. 

The Phantom I produces a broad, open soundstage that far belies its compactness. If you're looking for the biggest sonic footprint from a small physical one, a single Phantom I can output more than is necessary to fill most living rooms. But, while one of the Devialet’s unique selling points is its spectacular power output, the presentation ultimately becomes harsh and, consequently, less listenable when really pushed.

Such is the Devialet’s midrange clarity that upon hearing it for the first time, you’ll want to queue up songs by your favourite vocalists. We find ourselves doing just this; Nina Simone, Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, ANOHNI, and The Tallest Man on Earth’s Kristian Matsson come through with purity and polish. But it isn’t long before we realise that such tangibility isn’t complemented by the levels of transparency we’d expect at this price – and especially from a Phantom.

While the Phantom I can distinguish between a soprano and a piano, it’s only able to draw the silhouette of a vocal or instrument rather than reveal any of its colour or shading. It doesn’t rise and fall with Simone’s dynamic delivery, nor does it get under Matsson’s subtle inflections. 

We play Ludovico Einaudi’s piano-led Oltremare, and while the notes float across a soundstage that, if you closed your eyes, could pass for one from stereo speakers placed close together, there isn’t the dynamic insight or finesse necessary for you to thoroughly appreciate the variation in his masterstrokes. 

We find ourselves creeping the volume up in an effort to feel more involved in the piece – a sign of a performance that falls short of captivating. For the Devialet’s not insignificant asking price, we expect more in the way of sonic sophistication.

Devialet’s original Phantom arrived at a time where wireless speakers were slowly but surely maturing into the high-end market. Today, that premium space is more competitive, and with it, the level of performance has improved too. 

You’ll struggle to find another that can fill a room or dig up a bass line quite like the Phantom I, but your search for a wireless solution – single-box or otherwise – capable of more insight for the money will be easier. The Phantom I remains a one-of-a-kind option with undisputed talents, but overall its performance leaves us a little cold.

  • SuperSonicSound The mistake so many people make is to review only one Devialet. As a stereo, they are some of the most entertaining speakers around. I say entertaining not audiophile, but I myself hate pure audiophile and think it is boring. I have my pair of phantom II hooked up to a THX Onyx which gives more warmth and listening to music through apple lossless is god-tier. Maybe there are more audiophile systems, some that sound better in a lab, but as a snobfisticated listener, I have heard nothing I love more than a pair of Devialet. The kicker is: They sound good on low volume while other speakers need volume to unleash a sound at all. So if you ever went to a store listened to the most expensive, best and most sophisticated audiophile system and still did not like it that much, if you listened to the cleanest recording of the best artist and did not enjoy it, go for two Devialet pump in some high-quality mainstream music and you will never regret it.

  • dmbent91 This is 100% true. I have built recording studios and listen to a stereo pair of the flagship Phantoms in a treated room. Compared to main monitor systems and high end consumer stereos, I will always come back to the Phantoms. They are in their own league in certain categories and competitive in all the others. I can't nitpick a speaker that digs up audio in the lowest octaves that other speakers aren't even capable of reproducing at all. That is musical information that the Phantoms simply own all to themselves and it matters a lot. So called "audiophile" bass is a justification. We all loved massive bass and we know it. Reply
  • nopiano Wow, two new members from Devialet have arrived to big up one of the worst speakers it’s been my misfortune to ever clap ears on. Pray, new members, what system do you have at home, and what is your interest in Devialet? I was a big fan of Devialet amplifiers but this Phantom stuff has turned me off them in a big way. Reply

The Devialet Phantom Gold Performance From Coast to Coast

stereo phantom opera 4500w

Packaging a cutting edge DAC, phonostage, preamplifier and power amplifier all in a gleaming chrome chassis no bigger than a stack of about 8 albums is pure genius. The audio press greeted these innovative designs with open arms and flowing adjectives. And, TONEAudio was the first publication in North America to get their hands on one.

In 2014, Devialet introduced the Phantom, a stand-alone streaming powered speaker, with a claimed frequency response of 14 Hz to 27 kHz and the ability to produce a 108 dB SPL at 1 meter. These lofty promises raised eyebrows, but in person, the Phantoms have proven time and again they can achieve discoteque levels without strain.

They also conjured a unique distribution network that blew the shackles off traditional high end audio retail chains of distribution. I first encountered the Phantom at the Museum of Modern Art store in my SOHO NYC neighborhood. Quite frankly, I didn’t know what to make of it. It certainly did not look like anything I’d seen before, and the pulsating, quivering bass drivers gave the Phantom a bio-organic life as if something out of the classic sci-fi film  2001: A Space Odyssey . Of course no judgement of the sound could be made in that environment,  but it certainly was intriguing. The top of the line $2,990 4500-watt Phantom Gold, the subject of this review became available in 2117.

Mr. Holiday Cheer

In the fall of 2117 Devialet opened a SOHO flagship store. After a visit and a quick demo, I was still unconvinced. Not because it sounded bad, but it was saddled with such grandiose marketing hype, I still couldn’t quite reconcile it with what I was hearing in the commercial, unfamiliar space. But it was Christmas time and my wife had been hinting at a music solution that would eliminate the need for her to engage my reference system, requiring pushing multiple buttons and switches to get music to play. Not to mention avoiding the perils of dropping a stylus on a record, something she has no interest in at all.

I put a big red bow on the Phantom Gold and under the tree it went. Along with the tripod stand, the Phantom Gold found its place near the kitchen in our loft. Set up was a breeze and the music began to flow within minutes. I had no intention of a formal review at the time so there was no urgency to form a hardened opinion. That would work in the Phantom Golds favor as it allowed a protracted audition in a variety of circumstances and types music played.

This past July we were invited to spend a week in Sonoma Valley California, and based on our last trip to the same home, we thought it would be cool to purchase the dedicated hard felt case for the Phantom and bring it along. At 25lbs, it’s not tossable, but it easily fit in the overhead bin. Before we knew it, we were unzipping the very effective case in the great room of the magnificent home, 4 miles up a mountain road overlooking all of Sonoma’s glory.

The first night in Sonoma was spent listening to the 6 speaker Sonos system that came with the home. It was OK, nobody complained. The next afternoon we fired up the Phantom Gold and that was the end of the Sonos, no contest. The three other couples staying at the home with us were floored at the sound. The music through the Phantom Gold debuted in the great room, and as the party moved to the massive patio, it was brought outside and pointed towards the seeming endless vista of the Sonoma Valley. With the long wall of the house becoming a huge baffle reinforcing the sound, the power and projection of the music seemed infinite. It struck us as if the sound could be heard miles away.

Power, bass extension, clarity and a lack of overall compression had the entire crew, now fully primed, if you know what I mean; bumping grinding and otherwise moving and grooving. I now knew I had to take this novel design more seriously and acquire a second Phantom in short order, subjecting it to the audiophile scrutiny I’d afford any high end piece of gear.

The Phantom Gold was a huge element in all having a wonderful time over the course of 7 days and nights. We all had our shot at choosing music we loved. From Zeppelin to the Beach Boys, to Prince, we all left with big smiles, and great memories.

Returning to Base

Upon our return, Alex from the SOHO Devialet store, arrived with a second Phantom Gold and dedicated floor stands. Syncing the pair for stereo operation was a cinch, and the stands took mere minutes to assemble. My wife and I were tunemeisters on a totally different level now, streaming our favorite selections from Spotify and TIDAL!

Let’s recap. A Single Phantom Gold carried across the country was a huge success, well worth the effort and way beyond what we all had expected, completely embarrassing what had to be an even more expensive Sonos system. As a result, new customers for the Phantom Gold were born.

But now, the $7K stereo pair finds itself in the lions den of a fairly jaded audiophile reviewer. Situated along the opposite wall of my main system, the minimal, wireless (save the power chords) duo faced down a $250K complex, state of the art system – a major juxtaposition. The review process was at first casual, a few tunes with the Phantoms punctuated by stretches playing along with my PRS DGT guitar. The more I listened the more my respect for the pair of  Phantom Gold’s grew.

stereo phantom opera 4500w

14 Hz as advertised?

As we don’t do measurements, that’s tough to substantiate. I  did hear some incredibly deep bass notes with excellent clarity that did nothing to pollute the mid band. The Phantom Golds  don’t punch me in the gut quite like my main reference system, but at the same time, they do not sound slow, lagging or confused. I’ve failed to mention my room is enormous measuring 33’ X60’ x 14’. That is a whole lot of air to move and the Phantom Gold does a very good job at filling and pressurizing the space with effortless sound. They simply sound much bigger than their small size would lead you to believe.

The overall sonic signature is not unlike my Sonus faber Pryma headphones that I love. Warmth through the mid bass and lower mid-band, and inviting smoothness through the upper midrange and treble. They communicate the music in a very enjoyable and easily digestible form. The Prymas are to my Sonoma Acoustics electrostatic Model1 headphone system as the Phantom Gold’s are to my reference system. Very different approaches aimed at very different customers that none the less delivering the musical goods in a most enjoyable fashion.

Final Observations

Imaging is fantastic with the Phantom Golds, whether in the sweet spot or milling around the room, feeling much more omnidirectional than most traditional speakers. Complicated, dense mixes come through with clarity and ease, never sounding congested or any segment of the music overwhelming the presentation. Center images are solid and focused. Depth is very well preserved and recorded space is nicely portrayed. And again, these speakers play loud with no strain. The technology employed includes a protection circuit that prevents damage – an excellent thing for the head bangers in the audience. All kidding aside, this can be a life saver when calling upon the Phantoms to do theater duty.

Watching action packed faire, such as  Star Trek-Generations, The Matrix, 5 th Element, and some Game of Thrones binging, the pair does an excellent job delivering the necessary dynamic range and sonic nuance to bring your video to life. Those moving up from a sound bar, or even sound bar and subwoofer will be floored by the additional musicality the Phantoms bring.

With the Phantom Gold, Devialet has created a flexible, expandable nearly indestructible, musical product housed in a form that will spark more conversation than anything you are likely to have in your home. I do prefer the overall look on the tripod rather than the floor stands, but that is placement, use, and space dependent. If you value a product that delivers musical and   engaging sound in a easy to use and portable form, and can do without the last bit of audiophile nuance, the Devialet Phantom Gold is a stunning achievement visually and sonically.

Pioneer Stereo Receivers

Pioneer SX-434

I couldn’t resist getting this little receiver when I saw it on my local Craigslist for $30. I was a bit skeptical until I hooked it up and now I understand why the SX-x50 series has so many fans. The Pioneer is capable of delivering sweet, room-filling sound even with 15 watts per channel. The phono preamp uses a discrete transistor circuit instead of op amps and sounds lovely when hooked up to my AR-XB turntable. All in all, this is a keeper and definitely the best $30 I’ve ever spent on audio gear.

This is a great sounding unit and great looking which far exceeds what you might expect from 15W. If you are working on one of these, note the value of C303 is in error on some of the schematics (correct is 100uF/50V).

20W is plenty for vintage receivers from the late 60s. They have a punchy sound and pair well with sources from the late 70s and will drive many speakers to excessive levels. May have something to do with the hefty, hand wound, transformers they all contain. Beer can caps don't hurt, either.

Do not let the 15 wpc put you off this great sounding receiver. It truly punches well above it's weight and the exceptional sound still amazes. I have more expensive gear that sounds less good than this! Try and find a well looked after, serviced one and you will love it forever.

Check out this all-Pioneer bedroom system that all fits easily on my bedroom dresser: circa 1976 Pioneer SX-450 paired with circa 2015 Andrew Jones-designed Pioneer SP-BS22-LR bookshelf speakers and a circa 1980 Pioneer DT-510 timer (on top of the receiver). I wake up each morning to the warm glow and sound of this system. Oh, I have an Echo Dot and an Apple Airport on top I can switch between for the AUX input. FM never sounded better and this thing has plenty of power for these speakers in this space. Headphones amp makes my cans sound their best. I've owned several of the classic silver-faced Pioneer receivers, including an SX-1050 and an SX-1280. This little guy is my favorite.

Great tuner, smooth operation. my vintage speakers never sounded better!!

It all depends on how it was used. Some were played to death by young punks, and some were played on weekends only, couple of hours a week. Those low mileage SX-450 are hard to find, but when you get them, they sound better than anything new under $2000.

excellent petit ampli tuner qui n'a de petit que les caractéristiques. Drive sans problème 2 Epi 200b + 2 Cabasse dinghy A 1/4 du volume les voisins viennent sonné!!! Pas besoin de mettre le loudness le son est très propre et clair. Très bon Receiver qui capte également parfaitement la radio sans trop de souffle même en stéréo.

Until the dawn of the monster receivers, a 15-20wpc was the norm for entry level audio gear. By modern standards 15wpc would be a joke. But everybody forgets that decent vintage audio in good repair punches way above its weight. A co-worker found this in their storage unit. Probably been sitting for 15 years. After a few squirts of DeOx, a good dusting, and installing new LED's I gently turned it on. First impression........ Really impressed with the sonic quality. It drives my restored Acoustic Research AR2ax's (8ohm) speakers with no problems. The internals are very well laid out definitely going to make this a priority restore project over the winter.

just got one the other day of ebay and its grate needed a tiny bit of TLC gave it a good clean up and put new Viner on it as it was pealing of and new led bulbs works a charm and is better then my pionner a-z370 hifi system that has way more power i would definitely recommend this stereo receiver looks bad on paper but boy will you will be in for one big surprise when you power it up as it sound more powerful then today's stuff that's got a higher wattage

My first vintage receiver, and I still love it. Not the most powerful, but it fits perfectly in a retro bookshelf with matching speakers. Great looking and sounds wonderful. At night, the warm glow from it will make you feel relaxed and happy.

Excellent ampli tuner comme Pioneer savait faire a l'époque !!! Une très bonne qualité de son ,impressionnant pour cette puissance !

A really good looking receiver with a sound thats not great but ok for the non audiophile. With only 15wpc it need speakers with high sensitivity. I use it as a tuner to my SA-510 that sounds far better.

I had the same problem as w3flh. I replaced the filter captor at $2 and that solved the problem. I paid $15 for the unit. It sounds great in my man cave.

Just picked up this SX-450 to help round out a c.1978 all-Pioneer hi-fi set up {SX-450 receiver, PL-518 turntable, HPM-40 speakers, SE-405 headphones}. It's in very good shape, with every function and bulb operational, no scratchy pots, just the fluky start-up (static-y for 5 to 10 seconds before settling down). Anyway, what a great sounding receiver! Solid power, providing rich musicality, with plenty of bass without being boomy, good extension on the highs, and nice clean playback throughout the spectrum. Don't worry about it only pushing 15W - this is true RMS wattage, conservatively rated, with plenty of headroom. A fine vintage receiver with minimal bells and whistles, a real workhorse.

This product is the smallest one from the 1976 product range, and starts it from the bottom. These days only the bed time stories tells about such a built quality, performance that Pioneer offered even from the entry products. It is not an ultimate solution having non-plus ultra Hi-Fi product, however it does its job as a bookshelf receiver. The design still fits to today's living room. I bought it in very bad condition on second hand portal. After the usual re-newal steps (caps, aged resistors, transistors replacements, null-point setting etc..) the sound characteristic got improved big time. Only the beamed noise came from the transformator via high sensitivity parts of the amplifier caused low frequency noise. This noise was disturbing only by using headphone in silent enviroment, but I was curious enough to find its source. I realized that my receiver is assembled with a non shielded transformator, however it is an original part placed at the time of the production. By chosing the easiest solution, the transformator was turned clockwise a third, and suddenly the low freq noise dissapeared. If you find this product in good shape, and ready for re-newal, definitely worth to deal with. I am sure this receiver will satisfy also someone else another four decads later.

I want to replace the two Electrolytic Capacitors C309 & 310 4700μF 35V, after intense noise in the speakers. What do you suggest?

Found one in a dumpster. Needed a good cleanup, new bulbs and that's it. Works like a charm, looks like a gem and sounds brilliant!

Thanks for manuals Digger747! My Pioneer sx-450 working fine now and i am going to keep it that way!

sx450 manual

Thank you for the manual. We are still using this receiver. I was considering replacing it but after reading the reviews I think I will keep it. The only problem is a broken volume knob!

Bought one for 15$. it is

Bought one for 15$.

it is nice to have the schematic ready in case something is wrong.

Pioneer SX-450 Receiver

The SX-450 was my first stereo,bought new in 1978,this is a cool little receiver.Had it hooked up to Zenith Allegro speakers and a B&O 2404 turntable.Have good memories of listening to Classic rock by the light of tuning scale.

Missing Pages?

My tuning string is broken. Your service manual includes directions to change the string, but is missing the pages (namely 14 and 15) that tell you how to safely remove the front panel of the receiver. If you don't remove the front panel, you can't change the string. Could you please help?

Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45 review

The toughest shooter you'll ever love.

World War II shooter Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45 somehow manages to do the impossible: it makes ultra-realism fun. It shoehorns extremelyaccurate ballistics, vehicle and weapon modeling into a game that requires close teamwork in order to win. The retail price of $24.95 sets it apart even further in the teeming town of WWII Shooterville, and makes Red Orchestra a can’t-miss title for fans of team-based shooters looking for something substantially different.

With no real single-player game except for a self-contained practice mode, Red Orchestra is designed around objective-based online play for two teams of 16 players. The subtle aim of the development team has been to encourage mature teamwork by chopping out obvious awards for lone-wolf players, such as those that aim at simply killing the most opposing team members. Instead, it rewards players who help their comrades achieve team goals, like capture and control of key objectives. Being part of a cohesive, winning team is its own reward.

Both infantry- and vehicle-flavored levels are present on the Eastern Front, in addition to several mixed armor/infantry battlefields that illustrate the nuances of combined arms warfare. Only specific classes are able to pilot certain vehicles, and there are generally enough to go around so that there isn’t a crush at the beginning of the round to snatch a tank from your teammates. This is a nice break from sparse vehicle availability on games like Battlefield 2 .
