DeVore’s Friendly Orangutan
Next up was the Count Basie orchestra, delivered with gorgeous tonality. Although I didn’t have the opportunity to audition the larger DeVore Fideltiy Orangutan O/96 loudspeakers ($12,000/pair, reviewed by Art Dudley in the forthcoming December issue of Stereophile), I did enjoy the Van den Hul Colibri XCM HO with matched crystal copper coils and metal body ($6450), Well Tempered Versalex ($4400), LM Audio 219 IA 24 watt SE amplifier ($7500). Everything was connected by Auditorium 23 RCA interconnects ($795/1m pair) and speaker cable ($980/2.5m pair) and supported by Box Furniture Company’s HD 3A double wide heavy duty rack in Anigre ($4600) and A1A amp stand in Anigre ($900). Which I suppose is a town in Kansas. John must have a recording about Anigre.
