Singapore, July 2017 – Devialet, an innovator in breakthrough sound technology, and the most patented high-end audio brand in the world, makes its official Southeast Asian debut this month. Adored by audiophiles for years, Devialet is renowned for delivering an unparalleled, powerful and ultra-dense sound through its revolutionary products. Now Singaporeans and visitors will get the full experience with stores in the landmark locations of ION Orchard and The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. Opening just within days of each other, these stores are the only standalone boutiques in Asia, outside of the brand’s Asia Pacific headquarters in Hong Kong.
“Opening two stores in Singapore in July is for us the greatest statement of the importance the country has within our APAC expansion strategy,” said Julien Bergère, General Manager, Devialet Asia Pacific. “There is in Singapore a taste for innovation, new experiences and discovery. It’s no coincidence that Singapore is home to many tech companies as well as a very dynamic startup scene. Singapore is fascinated by high tech and quality of life reaching the finest luxury – Devialet is at the crossroads of luxury and technology, turning music listening or movie watching into a mesmerising, unforgettable experience.”
Devialet was created in 2007 when 3 complementary experts came together: pioneering engineer Pierre-Emmanuel Calmel, visionary entrepreneur Quentin Sannié and pre-eminent designer Emmanuel Nardin. Together, the trio founded Devialet to deliver new sound systems that will forever change sound quality and redefine the listener experience.
At the core of Devialet’s origins is ADH® (Analog Digital Hybrid) technology, the breakthrough invention of co-founder Pierre-Emmanuel Calmel and a revolutionary technology that has transformed sound amplification around the world. By combining the precision of analog and the power of digital amplification techniques, Calmel harnessed a previously unprecedented clarity and power, which enables Devialet products to reach a never heard before sound quality. Since the brand’s inception, Devialet exclusively designs and engineers all its own hardware and software in France and has continued to innovate by developing proprietary technologies such as SAM® (Speaker Active Matching) and HBI® (Heart Bass Implosion).
After 12 years of R&D, with an investment of US$35 million, Devialet’s engineers launched a wireless speaker that revolutionised the world of sound and disrupted a decades-old industry: White Phantom. Delivering 750W of power and 99 dB of physical impact in a sleek, spherical design, White Phantom provides agroundbreaking acoustic experience that has zero distortion, saturation, or background noise. This was followed by Silver Phantom, which produces an impressive 3000W and 105 dB.
In 2016, Devialet combined the newly patented ADH technology and HBI processor to develop Gold Phantom (4500W, 108 dB), which is plated with a luxurious 22 carat Rose Gold finish. Gold Phantom is 8x more powerful than its original; and with a new pure Titanium Tweeter, the result is the most exhilarating, widest reproduction of the audio spectrum from the deepest bass ever emitted (14 Hz) all the way up to the crystal-clear high frequencies (27 kHz), reaching higher and lower than the human ear. With Phantom, music can be played from any source with its Bluetooth and WiFi capabilities.
