What is Phantom Reactor?
Our Engineers worked on miniaturizing these technologies to reach the size of Phantom Reactor.
Reactor is available in two models:
- Phantom Reactor 600, at 600 Watts peak and 95 dB
- Phantom Reactor 900, at 900 Watts peak and 98 dB
Phantom Reactor's dimensions are:
- Width: 157 mm
- Height: 168 mm
- Depth: 219 mm
It weighs 4.3 kg (10 pounds)
In the box, you will find:
- Phantom Reactor 600 or 900
- a power cable
- a user guide
Why choose Phantom Reactor?
Phantom Reactor is a new breed of wireless speaker. By stretching size and performance beyond reasonable limits, Devialet engineers have brought to life the only ultra-compact home sound system capable of delivering high fidelity and physical impact, whatever volume you listen at. It has the most extreme concentration of high technology known to any sound system: 981 parts protected by 100+ patents.
Phantom Reactor's frequency response is extreme: from 18Hz to 21kHz with 0 distortion, 0 saturation and 0 background noise even at full power.
Which sources can I play on Phantom Reactor?
Phantom Reactor is natively compatible with Spotify Connect, Airplay, UPnP and Bluetooth ans will support more streaming protocols in the future.
The new Devialet app is dedicated to Phantom Reactor only and is available for iOS and Android.
It lets you install and set up and update your Phantom Reactor in a matter of easy steps to enjoy the best audio experience. And by connecting Phantom Reactor to your Wi-Fi network, you'll be able to access all your favorite music streaming services in high quality.
Use your favorite music app and play your music to Phantom Reactor with your preferred protocol (Bluetooth, Airplay, UPnP...) or use the Analog/Optical jack input.
Can I set up Phantom Reactor in stereo?
Yes it's possible to pair 2 Reactor together, and playing them in Stereo (Left & Right).
For pairing 2 Reactor you need to use same model (2 Reactor 600 or 2 Reactor 900).
To make a Stereo pair please follow the below video:
Do I need a Dialog in a one or more Phantom Reactor setup?
There is no need for Dialog for the Phantom Reactor. Dialog is only for Phantom Premier and is not compatible with Phantom Reactor.
Does Phantom Reactor have a stand-by mode?
There is a stand-by mode in Reactor which can be activated by pressing the back button during few second. Once it's activated the light on the top of the shell will fade out.
What is the minimum requirement for the new Devialet apps (which is piloting Phantom Reactor)?
The new apps is only avaialble on IOS (mobile and tablet) and Android (mobile and tablet).
Minimum requirement is the following:
- IOS 11 or above
- Android 5.x or above
On a IOS tablet, the app also displays on landscape mode.
Is the Bluetooth's pairing mode to Reactor "secure"?
There is a specific process to pair your source (mobile or tablet) to the Phantom Reactor. If you did not engage the pairing yourself with the apps or the Bluetooth button on the top of the casing you won't be able to connect your source to the Phantom Reactor.
Does Phantom Reactor require a power cable?
Yes, the power delivered by Phantom Reactor requires to be connected to a power outlet.
Is any wall mount available?
No at the very beginning but it's of course an accessories we are going to issue. For getting fresh news, register your email's address to our newsletter.
How can I update my Phantom Reactor
To update your Phantom Reactor, you will need to:
- Open the Devialet Application
- Go into Settings
- Click on "System Update"
Or look at the below video:
What is the AV sync option and how to access it?
We put into the apps a new setting to reduce the latencies into Reactor for all physical inputs.
To acces the option please the steps here
- Open the Devialet Application
- Select the Room/Device
- Click on the device parameters
- Toggle on the option AV Sync
Or look at the below video:
Note: In a Stereo setup, if you had modified the latency into one of your Reactor, please apply the same latency into the second Reactor, to avoid any difference between the left and right channel.
Note: If you are facing strange sound delivery from the optical/jack input, we recommend you to modify the latencies from your Reactor via the "AV Sync" menu.
Can I modify the communication mode between 2 Reactor set in Stereo?
When 2 Reactor are installed in Stereo, they are sharing their streaming flow together via different embedded protocol such as PLC, Ethernet or Wifi.
If you are not using them in Ethernet, the default protocol is PLC which sometime can be obstructed by other device connected to your powerline, to workaround this, please follow instruction below
Note: if you are changing the protocol please select the same protocol into both devices, otherwise you will face some strange sound behavior from your Reactor.
To acces this option please follow instruction on the below video:
Can I stream from a laptop or a desktop?
Our app is only available for a mobile (Android & IOS), to make a complete setup, it's then required to start with your mobile.
Once the setup is complete, you can then use the Bluetooth or the Airplay to stream music, which means you can control the device via this protocol from a PC or a MAC.
Note: Full control still remains within the app devialet, such as a very precise volume control, switch from a streaming source to another, and trigger in the Jack/optical
