"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." Art Dudley, Stereophile Magazine
"I'm seriously considering buying a pair of DeVore Fidelity Orangutan O/96es, because I love their sound so much." Jim Austin, Stereophile Magazine
"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." Rafe Arnott, Part-Time Audiophile Magazine
"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." Anthony Kershaw, Audiophile Magazine
"The Orangutan is a great looking and immensely enjoyable loudspeaker that's a gift to the tube amp lover, it can turn a handful of Watts into a living, breathing musical experience that you will be hard pressed to turn off. That is what living is all about." Jason Kennedy, The Ear Magazine
"It was the misunderstanding of that time that painted the orangutan as rough, wild powerhouses. John DeVore’s naming of his speakers corresponds instead to the modern understanding of these animals: wild and strong certainly, at the right moments. But infinitely delicate and sensitive at other moments. Making this connection to both is so outstandingly successful in the 0/96, I would like to award a well-deserved imperial scepter, crown and rule over the high-end landscape." Uwe Kirsch, Image HiFi Magazine, Germany
"The sound I got out of these gorgeously put-together boxes was shockingly deep and stunningly refined — I bought the demos immediately as I couldn't bear to let them out of my house." Scott Hull, Part-Time Audiophile Magazine
"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." Jack Roberts, Dagogo Magazine
"The factor most responsible for reproducing the fundamental midrange frequencies at such high quality is an outstanding, almost-holographic dimensionally, which allows us to listen to our favorite jazz trio in the privacy of our listening room as though witnessing a private performance." Miguel Castro, HiFi Live Magazine, Spain


"My beloved DeVore Fidelity Orangutan O/93 loudspeakers perform at a level of excellence beyond what I ever dreamed possible." Herb Reichert, Stereophile Editor's Choice 2014
"Using the O/93 is like side-stepping the whole studio system and sitting in front of the musicians." Alan Sircom, The Absolute Sound Magazine
"I cannot recommend the O/93 highly enough, not only are they cerebral in their intimations, they also speak to the heart, and that to me, is what an end-game loudspeaker must be capable of." Rafe Arnott, Part-Time Audiophile Magazine
"I toss around a lot of adjectives in trying to adequately describe my listening experience with the DeVore Fidelity O/93s. A special speaker, one with richness, punch, finesse and clarity (there I go again); the O/93s ultimately produced a singular sound, a natural sense of wholeness that defies single words or strings of descriptors." Ken Micallef, Positive Feedback Magazine
"The DeVore Fidelity Orangutan O/93 is a virtuosos all-around musician, feeling like Herbert Von Karajan in the Orchestra Pit, Jimi Hendrix on stage or Lionel Hampton in the studio." Fidelity Magazine, Germany
"It's rare to see cabinetry this professional and this beautiful in any loudspeaker, even those selling for ridiculously high prices. More than most loudspeakers, the Orangutan O/93s brought me closer to live, especially with concert recordings, and even over the Internet. Other speakers sound, er, too tame in comparison." Sam Tellig, Stereophile Magazine
"I've heard and liked DeVore Fidelity speakers before, but the new Orangutan 0/93 was different. Even when listening to mostly unfamiliar music I fell in love with the sound from the get-go. The Orangutan 0/93 brings out the best in all genres of music." Steve Guttenberg, c/net
"The only other speaker that I have heard this good for under $15,000 is the bigger Orangutan, the O/96s." Jack Roberts, The Audio beatnik Magazine

gibbon X

"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

gibbon Super Nine

"So for the first time in almost 11 years, I have a new reference speaker. I know it’s not the most expensive, or even the most expensive in the DeVore line, but I have my doubts that I will find a speaker that makes music in my system and room sound better anytime soon." Jack Roberts, The Audio Beatnik
"The Super Nines produce the widest and deepest soundstage I have ever heard from my system. It is also a very coherent soundstage with a real solidity to it that is in no way distracting from the music. These speakers are also incredibly dynamic. They have the best startle factor I have heard from any speaker in my room.

In the end, Becky and I both found the DeVore Fidelity gibbon Super Nines to be speakers we want to continue to enjoy in our home." Jack Roberts, The Audio Beatnik

"The lush, vibrant mids, and meaty, full-bodied, sound in this room was just to-die for. With surprising extension at the bottom (yes, someone asked where the sub was!)" Greg Weaver, Enjoy The Music

gibbon 3XL

"With the gibbon 3XL you get a highly crafted, beautifully designed and remarkably clear, articulate, musical, and compelling sounding speaker. In the end I am purchasing the review sample." John Brazier, Positive Feedback Magazine
"The DeVore 'sound' is intoxicating and once you've experienced it, you'll never look at art or music the same way again." Dennis Russo, The Trades
"I went bananas over the bamboo, aesthetically and sonically. There's splendor in this grass." Sam Tellig, Stereophile Magazine
"Gibbon 3XL is an impressive sounding two-way standmount. The sound was unforced, with top-octave ease and space galore on the snare-drum rimshots. Cymbals in particular had superbly natural texture and HF extension." John Atkinson,
"In conclusion the DeVore Fidelity Gibbon 3XL is an extraordinary speaker of refinement, power, projection, delicacy, nuance and detail." Ken Micallef,
"The sound was what I have come to expect from DeVore speakers: energetic, easy to listen to, detailed but without harshness, and with outstanding bass for a speaker of its size."
"The sound here was exceptionally good with outstanding detail, transparency and dynamics…all without the slightest hint of irritation."
"Stepping into the DeVore Fidelity room was like stepping back in time to the mid-1960's — at least visually. The sound was thoroughly modern and among the Best Rooms at the show."

Show Coverage

Munich 2019

Michael Lavorgna, Twittering Machines
"The level of refinement and power embodied in the O/Ref System is a thing to behold"

Panagiotis Karavitis, Parttime Audiophile
In one of the dreaded ground floor prefabricated rooms he managed to pull a rabbit out of the hat in the form of a 4-cabinet, 4-way, 5-drivers reference speaker system that worked marvels on both jazz and classical music.
"There is not much more to ask from a speaker system and from the show’s performance as a whole. It had some of the most credible timbres, the soundstage was open and extended all the way to the room’s ceiling, the bass was good despite the well documented awful acoustics of these cubicles.
"...there is little else out there that offers this kind of refinement."

Waldemar Nowa, Info Audio
"DeVORE FIDELITY: O / REFERENCE - heaven on earth
If you're done chasing the rabbit and want to finally catch it, you've come to the right place.."

Martin Mertens, FairAudio
"clearly my "Best of Show" performance."

RMAF 2018

Myles Astor, Audio Nirvana
"John Devore unveiled his first attack on state-of-the-art sound and hit out of the park. An immersive musical experience rarely experienced with most audio systems. Extraordinary dynamic ease."

Jack Roberts, The Audio Beatnik
They take up a whole lot less space than any of the other statement systems I know of, but don’t think for a minute that the DeVore Fidelity’s Orangutan Reference Speaker System isn’t in that league. I promise you they compete with any speaker system."

Lee Scoggins, Part-time Audiophile
Best Of Show "one of the most gorgeous 4-box speaker systems I have seen. The sound was pure. Just great warmth in all best aspects of that work. Remarkable."

Michael Lavorgna, Twittering Machines
"The Orangutan Reference speakers not only embody that house sound but they throw in the summer house, the winter house, and transportation."

Marc Phillips, Parttime Audiophile
"Best Of Show "If I wanted to pick the single most interesting debut at the show, it would be the DeVore Fidelity Orangutan Reference loudspeakers. They’re beautiful in a stout, hearty way, and they produced a sound that satisfied in every possible way–fantastic low bass, a natural and realistic midrange and an overall smoothness that I found mesmerizing."

Rafe Arnot, Audiostream
"In the end this was a showstopper of a room where time and space seemed at odds and had me low-whistling a few times at what I was hearing."

CES 2018

Neil Gade, The Absolute Sound Magazine
"DeVore Fidelity Gibbon Super Nine produced loads of output, smooth tonal balance, and tons of value at its $9990 price point."

Todd Cooperider, Secrets Of Home Theater and HiFi Magazine
"This was the best sounding system I listened to all day. It had thunderous yet articulate bass, silky smooth mids, and crystal clear highs. For a price of $9,990, I think it’s a tremendous bargain. Not only do I plan to go back today for another listen, but I want to get my hands on a pair of these for review! Very impressive."

Jim Saxon, The Audio Beat Magazine
Jimmy Award 2018
"Brooklyn’s finest. The DeVore Fidelity room is an annual must-visit thanks to my deep admiration for David versus Goliath."

Audio Head Magazine
"When I entered the room John had some classical music on, projecting an expansive soundstage that was tonally balanced and sufficiently textured. Switching over to Jelly by Laural Halo, the low end intro really impressed across the board with a low end grip that just wouldn’t let go. The same rich tapestry rung through as with the previous track, but followed by control of the low-to-high dynamics that was equally impressive as it was focused. It was the toe tapping high fidelity experience that I was looking for, but rarely heard all week."

CES 2017

John Atkinson, Stereophile Magazine
"...there were many more, but the memory I am left with is trying (and failing) to destroy the DeVore Fidelity Orangutan O/96s on Sunday afternoon with a 24/192 needledrop, from a 12" 45rpm single of Joe Walsh's "Rocky Mountain Way." Rock'n'roll, audio-show bliss!"

Jake Shimabukuro, Stereophile Magazine
“What I really love about these speakers is how they convey the tone of the instrument. Very natural, very warm. Some of the other systems you can get distracted by the soundstage or imaging, but this one, man, this is closest to what it sounded like in the studio when we were mixing.”

Herb Reichert, Stereophile Magazine
"I came back a second and third time and got to experience this Sugden gear driving Dee-Vore's flagship speaker, the Gibbon X, and all I can say is: Wow! Dang!."

Jim Saxon, The Audio Beat
"Jimmy Award"

RMAF 2017

Rafe Arnott, Part-Time Audiophile
"Once again, one of my absolutely favourite-sounding rooms in Denver."

Jason Victor Serinus, Stereophile Magazine
"Most notable, from my perspective, were several stunning wins. The first, which addressed loudspeakers at both ends of the price spectrum, is that DeVore Fidelity and Wilson Audio both won awards for their products. DeVore's Orangutan 0/93 snared 'Floor-Standing Speakers under 15,000 EUR.'"

Herb Reichert, Stereophile Magazine
"The DeVore/Tone Imports room and new gibbon Super Nine loudspeakers get my second nomination for best sound of show."

Jack Roberts, The Audio Beatnik
Bongo Award: DeVore Fidelity Gibbon Super Nine Speaker – Best Product Debut at RMAF 2017

CES 2016

Graham Nash, Stereophile Magazine
"I think these [gibbon Xs] are built for real living rooms. Yes, they were fabulous."

John Darko, Digital Audio Review
“Epic, masterful full range reproduction from beautiful pieces of audio furniture [gibbon Xs.]”

Rafe Arnott, Part-Time Audiophile
"This was such a relaxed, nuanced, and heartfelt sound, and DeVore, and Halpern always spin the most engaging records, so whenever you find yourself near the room you can’t help but be pulled into it just because of the great tunes always wafting out of the door. For price point, simplicity, and sheer, unbridled musicality this room was a true standout at the show."


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.
