An absolutely full-range and utterly transparent reference speaker for the gibbon series.
Easy to drive and easy to place in any room. The gibbon X is a three-way system with a new 3/4 inch ultra-low-mass textile dome tweeter suspended in an inert chamber, a new 7 inch midrange driver with a phase-plug and inverted natural rubber surround in it’s own sealed enclosure and a pair of massive, long-throw 9 inch woofers in a tuned 4-chamber enclosure.
Frequency Response: 23Hz-40kHz
Impedance: 8.5 Ohms (16 Ohms max, 7.3 Ohms min @ 26Hz)
Dimensions: 44”H x 9”W x 17.5”D (not including feet)
Finish Options (Bamboo): Cherry, Mahogany, Mink
Cherry. Mahogany. Mink.
“The X’s dynamics could literally startle.
The X also demonstrated startling realism well beyond what my Nines, for all their musicality, are capable of—indeed, at certain moments with very good recordings, beyond what I’d previously experienced in my home.
DeVore speakers have always imaged well, but the Xes imaged better than other DeVores I’ve heard, and exceptionally well in absolute terms. Musical images floated free of the enclosures with great stability and corporeality.
DeVore Fidelity’s Gibbon X is, to me, a Class A performer—highly recommended.”
Jim Austin, Stereophile
“I think this new Weapon X from the Monkeyhaus up in Brooklyn, NY, is a show-stopper. Played at volume, it’s literally a stunner. The Gibbon X is room filling, precise, and gloriously immersive in its presentation.
So, no, the Gibbon X is not cheap, but finding a better performing speaker at this price or lower? Yeah. Good luck. As for us, we’re giving it an Editor’s Choice. And this pair of Gibbons is staying here.”
Scott Hull, Parttime Audiophile
“For those of you who love the sound of big reference speakers, the Xs are probably the best value you will find in high-end speakers, especially if you are looking for a speaker under $100K with a neutral sound, real-life frequency extension, and incredible dynamics. Before you spend more, you should give the Xs a serious listen.”
Jack Roberts, The Audio Beatnik
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. “
