To connect two or more Phantoms together, you need a Wi-Fi router, called Dialog. This hub will intensify the experience with Phantom Speakers. You can connect up to 24 Phantoms to one Dialog, what would be excellent for multi-room systems. You also need the Dialog for Bluetooth functionality. If you move your Phantom Speakers to another room, then the Dialog will automatically reconnect.
Without the Dialog you can only listen to music that is on a device with a Spark-app. If you want to listen to streaming music, you need to have the Dialog. The Dialog can play all the music from your phone, tablet or computer through Wi-Fi. You get access to streaming music services, such as Deezer, Tidal, Qobuz, and Spotify. More services are planned for the future.
The connection is optical, such as Bluetooth, Airport extreme, CD player, Blu-Ray, DVD, or game console umidzco. The installation process is simplified for Phantom Speakers. With the Dialog you can set up a complete wireless audio system throughout your house. It is possible to synchronize and control up to 24 Phantoms at the same time.
When connected to your internet router at home, you can also access music directly from the cloud.
If you want to get the most out of your Phantom, then you need the DIALOG.
