Devialet Phantom Reactor Matte Black Edition

Devialet's Phantom Reactor has now been unleashed in a new matte black colourway which now joins the “Iconic White” version of the speaker. We've seen it and we approve.

Devialet's Phantom series had, up until now, only been available in a white finish, albeit with the choice of silver or gold flourishes.

However, the French company has now announced that the Phantom Reactor speaker will be getting a new coat that's blacker than Spinal Tap's infamous Smell The Glove LP. 

A Matte Black version of the speaker is now available, a first for Devialet speakers.

As Nigel Tufnel once said: 

It's like, how much more black could this be? And the answer is None. None more black.

That said, this is more than merely adding black to the Phantom's palette.

The new finish is the result of a year of design that has culminated in an aqueous paint solution that generates a soft-touch coating which feels rather nice. Each layer has been separately coated with the new finish to achieve Devialet's exacting standards for its products.

We have already met the new version in the flesh, and it certainly toughens up the Reactor's image. 

We could see the new Phantom Reactor Matte Black Edition equally at home in a minimalist living space or accompanying a top-level PC Battle Station.

Available in two models (600W and 900W), you can hook up the Phantom Reactor in solo or stereo mode, with music coming via Apple AirPlay, Bluetooth, Spotify Connect, UPnP or through an analogue/jack connection.

Naturally, you still get a speaker packing Devialet's 160 acoustic and mechanical patents with 11 further patents contributing to the Reactor's design and performance.

Price and availability

The Phantom Reactor Matte Black version is available now for £990.
