DOS 2.9.0
#68
Sound quality has gone to shit with DOS 2.9.0 on Phantom Golds. Migration to DOS 2 as well as every single firmware upgrade has altered the sound. This is annoying, but tolerable. So long as the actual sound quality remains as good or gets better.

DOS 2 reduced the impact of bass slightly, this was with 2.8.3. When 2.8.5 came out, a noticeable downgrade in sonic quality was apparent. Mostly in treble and upper midrange clarity.

2.9.0 has turned the speakers into a mess. There’s a serious lack of clarity in the treble and upper midrange. Coherency is no longer there. The treble used to be sharp, distinct, yet pleasant. The midrange clear and open with a perfect blend with the tweeter. The tweeter now sounds recessed (or at least part of its range is) and the midrange no longer sounds like it’s one continuous sound with the tweeter.

This is no good Devialet. If a new flagship Phantom Premier comes out, they can intentionally downgrade the sound of all other speakers to make the new one sound best.

I don’t give a shit about people having stability issues, or crackles in some piano sounds. These last two firmwares and especially the latest one has seriously downgraded the sound quality of a $6000 flagship product. Devialet, you better seriously and quickly get your act together and correct this mess immediately. Or start refunding. Consider this a final warning.
