At this time you would be required to purchase a new Phantom unless the previous Phantom is subscribed to the Devialetcare."
    Simple answer - if the Phantoms flick your switch, subscribe to Devialetcare.

    So if they go caput during the warranty,you get some new ones? I Suppose that's good but it seems odd designing something that can't be repaired?

    It's the risk you take with heavily integrated electronics that are as much computer as they are HiFi. If you'd rather deal with a recap at most every 10yrs then classic HiFi still has its merits, or as above, get insurance & after-care packages.

    Crazy to make something that can't be fixed, shakes head in disbelief. Not read that in any of the reviews - if I recall correctly.

    I guess it is something to do with the way the bass system works.

    I thought they sounded poor when I heard a pair at Scalford a couple of years ago, initially impressive but something false about the sound esp the bass.
