I like looking at them. I like looking up and seeing them there, even when I'm not listening to music. Even silent, I like them. They speak action, importance. Even silent, they speak. Action, importance, symmetry, balance. They look good. I was concerned that my place would be too small for them. I was concerned that my living space would be devoured by audio gear, consumed by cardboard boxes, Styrofoam padding, ugly cables. But this is not the case at all.
I get up easily, walk over, give them a gentle rap, let my hand run across the smooth, clean finish, and take a look around back. The handsome DeVore Fidelity gibbon 3 loudspeakers Serial No. 325100054 are not in the way of anything. They take nothing away. All they seem to do is give. They fit right in. My small, Jersey City living room is better, better, and more with the gibbon 3s around.
This speaker was handmade in New York City.
Like a fine instrument. They do make me proud.
