Stereophile Magazine

“Colorful yet uncolored, the DeVore Orangutan O/96 is the loudspeaker many of us have been waiting for. …The O/96 is here to stay—as both a commercial product and as a well-loved part of my playback system.”

“Transparency is a term all too readily bandied about in reviews, but the O/96s truly exhibit this quality. The instant you hear these boxes in action then 99% of other ‘boxes’ sound, well, like they need a kick up the pants to get them going. The O/96s simply do not reveal themselves as a ‘sound source’ – their ‘touch’ is so light that the faintest of notes and sounds seem to slip unhindered into the room.”

“A transparency to source that will challenge the preconceptions of many listeners, timbral accuracy that often left me shaking my head at its realism, and astoundingly deep, powerful bass: these are some of the hallmarks of John DeVore’s O/96 loudspeakers in my opinion.”

“I got to play some very lovely flute solos courtesy of the great man — Rimsky Korsakov, Borodin and others. My sound was replicated to perfection — every musical inflection heard, stress here, crescendo there, and sweet diminuendos. I’ve not heard my own sound on a speaker sound so natural. Most speakers add something, but the DeVores left me alone. Very impressive.”

“If you listen in the dark or with your eyes closed, with the right recordings you may think and feel the music is coming from musicians and not speakers. The sound is energizing, life-size, full of emotion, and just flows into the room. …There is no way a two way with a 10 inch woofer and a one inch tweeter should sound like these speakers. How do they sound so coherent, how do they sound so big, how do they sound so alive? I don’t know, but I do love it even if I can’t explain it.”

SoundStage Australia - Sydney HiFi Show report, April 2024

"Mcleans founder Bill Mclean has the show setup and demonstration caper down pat – he always draws good sound given the unfavourable hotel room-based show conditions. Mostly showing Magnepan speakers at past shows, this year McLean brought in the DeVore Fidelity Orangutan O/96 speakers tightly driven by Rogue Audio Stereo 100 power amplifier teamed to the company’s RP-7 Preamplifier. Music was handled via AURALiC’s Altair G2.1 Digital Audio Streamer and cables were from Lenehan Audio FoilFlex. Well, Mclean, you’ve done it again. I sampled several tracks from the sweet spot (of note, AC/DC’s excellent “She’s Got The Jack”) and the system played with delicacy and warmth when called for, and satisfying power and dynamics when needed (ergo the AC/DC track). To the chagrin of many audio pedants who dislike the term, I’d call the sound here musical, in a way that could have had me staying there a whole lot longer."

Our goal at DeVORE FIDELITY is to create products that communicate the life-breath of music. We believe that the best means to this end combines the art of aesthetics with the science of physics in such a way that each complements the other, and together yield a product far greater than the sum of its parts.

Founded by president and chief designer John DeVore in 2000, DeVORE FIDELITY has gone on to win awards and universal acclaim for every one if its products, as John continues to push the state of the art in speaker design. John brought his 30 years of experience as a musician, 20 years of designing speakers and 18 years of Hi-Fi industry experience to his company, and, as Stereophile put it back in 2005, “DeVore Fidelity is a young company, but at Home Entertainment Shows and CESes over the last half decade, its products have pulled down critical kudos and consumer raves that more established companies would kill for.
