BLACK, white, silver, gold… these are de rigueur in the audio and AV realms, with some variations in shades (titanium, champagne) and finishes (glossy, matte, satin). Devialet, famed for its amps and active speakers, breaks away to offer its Phantom II home wireless speaker in green… although in a more subtle than bold variant… sage green.
“The world of high-end audio tech doesn’t have to be all black and white. Devialet brings on the green. The colour of both the familiar and the foreign, at times uncannily soothing or energising, green breathes life, just like Phantom II,” the press release informs us.
“The captivating, earthy sage green shade tells a story, one of an iconoclastic approach to sound and aesthetics: the tale of Devialet. Urban patio, country home, cozy chalet – blending into your setting is in Phantom II Sage Green’s nature.”
Of course, many are already familiar with what the Phantom models do. Available in different power-output capacities, they have Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and digital or analogue connectivity, along with AirPlay, UPn and Spotify Connect. The Phantom II in sage green is the one designated “98DB”. It has touch controls for convenience.
“When firing up its 98dB SPL, Phantom II Sage Green and its sleek aluminium side panels morph into a striking statement of power. Compact yet thumping, it knows how to stand out and catch your attention, your eye, and your purest emotions.”
Outputting 400 watts RMS and with a frequency reach of 18Hz to 21kHz, the Phantom II 98DB is “the only ultra-compact speaker capable of delivering high fidelity and physical impact, whatever volume you listen at.”
Only 1,000 units of the Phantom II Sage Green Exclusive Collection will be made available, so if green is your colour, get cracking.
