I just bought the new Bluesound Pulse 2i and I’m currently comparing it to my older Pulse 2. So far it has been a puzzling comparison test but what I love about Bluesound is how they take Roon integration seriously. Because of this Bluesound wireless speakers are my only purchase option at this time.
Even so, Devialet is the gold standard of wireless speakers. I have auditioned the Devialet Phantom and I’m seriously impressed but I find their size too big for my small NYC apartment and the styling of the Phantoms are a bit too garish (cheesy gold and silver accents ). This is not the case with the new Phantom Reactors. They’re plain, solid white ( I would love solid black. ) and they are smaller. The Phantom Reactors are a bit more expensive than the Pulse 2i’s but I would trade by 2i’s in a heartbeat if I knew that Devialet was Roon Ready and if Devialet had a software interface as sophisticated as Bluesound’s. Does anyone know if Devialet will become Roon RAAT certified in the near future?
This is an important question for me because I have a return window in which I can get a full refund for my Pulse 2i speakers. I tried calling Devialet and the rep had no idea what Roon was but she wasn’t in technical support. Is there anyone here who has an inside track with Devialet who could tell me they plan to be Roon RAAT certified?
