It’s a 12m*4m room and I’m placing my phantom about 3 m from left wall and 9m from right wall
Where's your listening position? How close to the wall behind the speakers are the speakers located?
The phantom is located just in front of the wall maybe 5 cm from the wall and I am on the other side of the room at the back maybe 4.5m away. There is a little side wall so the phantom basically has even distance from both side walls but the room is open in a rectangular shape . Maybe I need 2 phantoms to pressurise the room properly
I am a bit confused about the fact that people get one Phantom and expect it to match a pair of monitors in sound quality/pressure/energy. It´s like going after a pair of Bower & Wilkins 805 D3, but only get the left monitor :-). One of the main reasons for me hesitating going into the Devialet sphere was that (as a serious Audiophile coming from the lands of McIntosh and Martin Logan) I didn't want to be associated whit HIFI-beginners and house wife´s expecting  HIFI miracles from one solitary speaker. However, as a pair of golds just creates such a miracle I clearly entered.

Congrats! Reading the specs in a white paper in December 2014 I became one of the first purchasers of a Phantom Silver pair in early spring 2015 and upgraded to the Golds end of 2016. Still, they spread incredible SQ I enjoy daily.

Cool! Early adopter :-). Have you let them go a round or two against competition since? I wonder what in the world of monitors that could come close...?

Kii Three is better in my opinion, but they're quite expensive compared to Phantom Gold. For the price, Phantom Gold is almost unbeatable.
Living room: Kii Three with Control. 
Den: 2x Gold Phantom, 3x Silver Phantom, Remote v1 & v2

Word. I have not listened to them but my local Devialet dealer has them so I will for reference. As you say: they are 2x price, do.
