“Only four speakers ever brought me to tears: Apogee’s Scintilla, the Wilson Sasha DAW, LS3/5As and now DeVore’s O/baby. I’m not suggesting what I heard can be duplicated even if one assembled the exact same system, as I bow to the synergy with my room. What is telling is that I spent seven straight hours in there just for the Ƃrst session, transƂxed. For size, if not price, these have no rivals I can name.”

“When I unpacked the O/Baby speakers, I was surprised by how small the cabinets are. I shouldn’t have been. John performed a miracle to get this kind of dynamics, scale, life, and transparency out of such a small speaker. The tunefulness and lack of crossover distortion is amazing for their size. They get the essentials right. The sound defies their size by many times.”
