New Phantom?
#1
Hi! I recently sold my two Golds. I just couldn’t deal with Spark anymore. Or Dialogue. And no Roon. And only optical in. And no EQ. And.....

But I miss the effortless sound and the aesthetics. Now I have a very different and traditional setup with seperate speakers, pre-amp, power-amp, DAC, streamer, turntable, and a lot of wires. It’s more expensive, it’s more flexible, it sounds better. But it’s a lot of work. So I miss the simplicity of two Golds on Treepods. 

So here’s my question: after the launch of Phantom Reactor can we expect to see a new Phantom Gold II? I really need an excuse to get back to Phantom!


Kind regards
Mads

Using Roon with my Silvers thru Raspberry Pi... no need to deal with Spark.

They will definitely make Gold Reactors soon...welcome back! Big Grin
Current: Phantom Silvers, Oppo 105D (Toslink), Raspberry Pi + Digi+, ROON
Pre-Phantom: PenAudio Rebel2, Nuforce MCH-2C5, Oppo 105D (Analog)

I believe Roon does this via Apple AirPlay which has issues on classic Phantoms with certain frequencies distorting? This is part of the long outstanding firmware fix that people have been waiting for.

No, we may see a new high end product but not a refresh of all the existing ones. Instead Devialet will integrate all of their products (including Expert amps) into one app. The new ‘Devialet’ app that the Reactors use.
There will also be DOS2 (Devialet OS 2) for all models of Phantom Premier which will allow them to integrate with the Reactors and Expert amps for things like synced music playback across all products.

And that is exactly what I want. A new upgraded Phantom Gold, maybe Phantom Diamond, that loses the Dialogue and is Roon Ready and is easier to integrate with a turntable, etc. 

Question is when?

They’ll all be dropping Dialogue support and incorporating Roon support. Anything above the Gold Phantom that’s still considered the same line of Phantom won’t have any different inputs or external ports. It would hurt the entire line.
