My Phantom voyage
#1
I've been a Phantom owner for a while now, it's Saturday and the town where I live is closed down due to an annoying and lethal virus, so it's time for a dedicated thread about my Phantom voyage. Here is goes:

The release of the Devialet Phantom speakers coincided with my plans to simplify my setup back in 2015. Cary, Krell, Tact and Sonus Faber was being sold and I was looking for a replacement. Out of the blue, some futuristic looking plastic spheres with unbelievable specifications emerged. Too good to be true? Maybe, but I ordered a pair of Phantom Silver before they were released here in Norway. After a long wait, and then some, the speakers finally arrived. 
Old vs new 
   

   

My wife was extremely pleased with the change from this 
   

to this in the living room 
   

A Cary preamplifier, Tact DAC, Theta transport and a Squeezebox Touch was obsolete too. Can't blame her for being happy. 

Soundwise the Phantom Silver blew the Extremas away in every aspect except for the treble. The DynAudio Esotar 330 is still one of my favorite tweeters. It was after all a small sacrifice compared the other advantages of the Phantoms, and the money saved. 

A year went by and out of the blue, again, the Gold Phantom was released accompanied by a moisturizer jar. More power, a refined tweeter, rose gold and an erratic and unresponsive volume control was more than enough to trigger the upgradius nevrosa. The combination was irresistible.
