Devialet’s Phantom Reactor is your next ultra-compact hi-fi system

Devialet has welcomed a new member to their Phantom series of speakers. The Phantom Reactor is the company’s first ultra-compact speaker: less than 22cm wide and 17cm tall, the soccer-ball sized beauty packs a punch with its astonishing crystal clear sound. Previously, the Phantom series was only been available in white, but for those who prefer something a little muted, the Reactor is available in a new Matte Black version.

Audiophiles can be certain that volume levels will not be compromised with its size. The Phantom Reactor is able to deliver mellifluous output without any hint of distortion even when it approaches louder peaks. The Analog Digital Hybrid (ADH) innovation delivers the quality of an analogue amplification in a digital-sized package, while the Speaker Active Matching (SAM) signal processing system retains detail even at its maximum volume of 98db.

It is also great for those who are not too keen with fiddling complex hi-fi setups. You can connect it to your wifi network or via Bluetooth for a customisable audio experience with almost zero setup. From dinner parties to home movies, the Reactor brings whole new meaning to the phrase “tiny but mighty”.

Made in France, the design of the Phantom series is similar across the board — sleek, minimalistic, yet intriguing. The egg-shaped design vaguely looks like something out of a science fiction movie, yet the smooth round lines blend into the room perfectly. Place it on a side table or a stand, and the stainless steel body is a stylish piece to accompany any home.

The Phantom Reactor 600 and Phantom Reactor 900 is priced at S$1890 and S$2390 respectively, available now at ION Orchard, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands and authorised dealers at ATLAS Sound & Vision and Audio Note.
