Congratulations to DeVore Fidelity for some well-deserved recognition.  The Orangutan O/93 is the best 'under $10,000' speaker in the world...no, make that the universe.  If you're not one to believe the hype, then come down to the shop in Portland, Ore. and decide for yourself.  The O/93 and O/96 speakers are both available for audition.

Eugene Hi-Fi is now supporting WireWorld digital cables. Their top level Platinum Starlight USB cable is a popular match with the Auralic Vega so we are starting there. Our journey into computer audio continues...

The Auralic Vega is still breaking in, but wow does this dac sound great.

The LM 515 is going to be a major contender in the world of CD players. It is difficult to describe because our thoughts would come off as sounding 100% over-hyped. It literally blurs the line between analog and digital, and this may be its biggest achievement.

Designed to be a one box solution for digital playback, it also offers an XMOS asynchronous USB input to access its ESS9016 dac chip for computer playback.  The output stage uses two 6zk8 tubes and has AES/EBU, BNC, optical and coaxial output connections.  


The EMT JSD 6 has been getting a lot of play on the Frank Schroder designed Artemis Labs turntable.  How does EMT do it? This cartridge sounds incredible. The TSD 15 and an A23 SUT is arguably a match made in heaven, but the JSD 6 really brings the heat.  Both cartridges are extremely fine trackers.  We've heard them play through poor pressings effortlessly, where others will either distort or just totally mistrack.  When the stylus wears out, EMT performs a complete rebuild.

The Devore Fidelity Orangutan O/93's are one of the best values in high end speakers. Where do we start? There is just so much to love about them. Their versatility can not be understated. The O/93's are at home with both analog and digital sources. They set up on the short or long wall and are equally compelling in either position. The front baffles are hand polished to an exquisite finish. Their easy-to-drive, 10 ohm / 93 db load lets them play loud without causing the amplifier to lose its composure. In fact, these speakers love the volume. The sound is relaxed without being dull, offering true resolution over treble-based detail. The Orangutan series will prove to be a watershed moment in the history of DeVore Fidelity. They are literally legends in the making.

From Hi-Fi+
DeVore speakers are naturally and neutrally voiced, full of nuance and subtlety, and capable of conveying the natural warmth and engaging qualities of live music. They also do imaging and soundstaging like champs—in the process putting many better-known speaker brands to shame.

DeVore's relatively new Orangutan 093 is a perfect case in point; it is a speaker that can sound, by turns, sumptuous, seductive, silky, and sophisticated—the sort of speaker that makes you want to keep on listening for hours on end (meaning that, yes, I had to drag myself out of the DeVore room in order to make time to visit other manufacturers).

Leben CS600 Integrated Amplifier

We first heard the Leben CS-600 at a customer's house and got a taste of what makes these amplifiers so desirable. It's definitely exciting to bring them into the shop. The CS-600 has been playing with the Devore Fidelity O/96's and those two have been delivering the goods. The blend of power and refinement is seductive. Music just flows out of the speakers in a way that is very captivating. Leben's build quality is impeccable and and the chassis size is very room friendly. It fits into a standard equipment rack. A high quality headphone output and selectable low frequency boost are also included.
