What is AirPlay®?

AirPlay® is a connectivity protocol made available by Apple. It is leveraging your Wi-Fi connexion. This protocol allows you to stream audio and video content, many applications and software natively embed this protocol. It lets you very easily stream music to your Phantom system directly from your favorite Apple devices or compatible applications (Itunes, Tidal, etc…).

Which Devialet devices are AirPlay-compatible?

To stream music with AirPlay you need one of these devices:

  • A Gold Phantom
  • A new generation Phantom or Silver Phantom (natively AirPlay-compatible)
  • A new generation Dialog (AirPlay-compatible)

With only one of these devices, the AirPlay functionality is extended to your whole Phantom system

To find out if your Phantom or Silver Phantom system is AirPlay-compatible, please click here

 

You will then have the possibility to stream your local and online music via the AirPlay® protocol from an Apple device (Iphone®, Ipad®, Macbook®, Ipod Touch®) or any app, software compatible such as Quicktime® or Itunes® for example)
