How to make a Stereo set up with Phantom II

This article will describe steps to follow to do a Stereo setup with Devialet Phantom I (Premier) or Phantom II (Reactor), but also how to split and merge an existing Phantom I or Phantom II stereo setup.

 

A stereo can be done with only the same products example: 1 Phantom I 108 dB Gold can be combined in Stereo with a Phantom I 108 dB Gold or Phantom I 108 dB Dark Chrome. Same goes for any Phantom II products - stereo is only possible with products with the same power (it can be a mixed in colors between Black and White Products)
