I don't know if I can print any quotes from the latest Stereophile's (Follow Up) page 177 by Herb Reichert. I've never before been exposed to the words of someone making love to a loudspeaker.
You couldn't separate Herb and the Devore Gibbon 3XL with a cheese knife! In the smallest of print it said Sam Tellig had reviewed this speaker before. Maybe this is some small reason I saved all my Stereophile's.
I know Sam isn't on the staff anymore but I think not only 2 but a panel of reviewers would provide a better assessment of any product reviewed. It might explain the fantastic fanatical experiences some get vs. those who don't as much and then the consumer can make an easier choice.
Just a thought....Mark K.
Herb certainly belongs to the "Purple Passion" school of audio writing but the DeVore speakers are also very, very good.

I get that impression from all his reviews. I don't read them anymore. I just look at the measurements.
Ha!-- yesI noticed in the Current 017 Recommended Component issue --one Reviewer stated
"the unit sounded broken"
It still made Class A Rating--!
.........it would take a crowbar ;-)
