Vancouver Audio Festival 2018: Devialet energizes with Bowers & Wilkins

Devialet-BW-Feature

Big, bam, boom: Bowers D3.

Some think they’re beautiful, others feel they emulate what artificial intelligence will look like in the far future. I’m in the former camp, and have always admired what Bowers & Wilkins do design-wise because the are a form-follows-function company in my eyes. Every line of the 800 D3 loudspeaker on demo during HiFi-Centre’s Vancouver Audio Festival is there for a reason, this is not an abstraction or pursuit of superfluity, this is modern industrial design at its core: Here in the service of high fidelity, and a slave to the recorded event.… Read the full article

The DeVore Fidelity O/93 loudspeaker long-term review

DeVore-O93-Featured

DeVore’s designs are some of the most beautiful speakers I’ve ever seen.

There’s something about John DeVore’s loudspeakers that intrinsically connect me to the music.

Jazz, blues, EDM, folk, rock, or pop… it doesn’t matter. The electron translations being performed by DeVore Fidelity designs – like the O/93 graciously provided to me by Soundhounds in Victoria, B.C., being reviewed here – would be listened to with envy by those involved with maintaining harmonious diplomatic relations between countries with disparate languages at the United Nations.… Read the full article

RMAF 2017: Lone Star Audio creates atmosphere with Synergistic, Magico, Constellation

At first glance, the Lone Star Audio rig at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest looked fairly conventional. There was a handsome wood rack filled with Constellation Audio electronics, flanked by floor-standing Magico speakers. But what was that tall, black post doing in front of the gear?

The beam was rectangular, about 4.5 feet tall and a few inches wide on each side. It was fixed to a triangular base. On top of the post was a small, circular feature with perforations.… Read the full article

I first auditioned a pair of Wilson Benesch speakers about a decade ago at a Dallas dealer. I had come in primarily to listen to a tube amp I fancied, but the sight of the large floorstanders got me curious.

I had read positive reviews on the company’s products. Seeing them up close was intriguing, as the woodwork – in this case, a gorgeous cherry – was beautiful. What I remember was that I came away impressed by their sound, too, especially the detailed high frequencies.… Read the full article

RMAF 2017: Zu, Peachtree create club vibe

IMG_9780-1

Each year at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, Peachtree Audio and Zu Audio take a large corner room on the mezzanine level of the Marriott Denver Tech Center. First-time visitors likely are surprised by what they find there, which is less a structured product demo, and more a nonstop party.

The master of ceremonies typically is Peachtree’s David Solomon, who stands in the near-darkness armed with an iPad filled with kickin’ tunes. He enthusiastically introduces each with stories about what the track means to him, how it was recorded or its rarity.… Read the full article
