DeVORE FIDELITYs' new statement speaker is the long awaited Silverback Reference. This speaker is unmatched in its ability to convey subtle musical nuance and delicate micro-details coupled to explosively powerful dynamics and truly full-range frequency response. A 21Hz-40kHz bandwidth achieved with a true 8 Ohm impedance, and a low-reactance crossover using our award-winning gibbon technology and pure silver foil capacitors makes the Silverback Reference transparent, seamless, and very easy for almost any amplifier to drive.
The silverback crossover is implemented using our proprietary gibbon technology assuring excellent transient fidelity and seamless integration of all four drivers. The crossover uses the DeF SVDX (Suspended Vibration Damped X-over) system in which all components are encapsulated in Vibraflex and mounted on an isolated baffle to eliminate coil, capacitor and resistor resonance.
The tweeter is a state-of-the-art silk dome with flat response to 40kHz using powerful dual magnets and a carefully tuned enclosure. The tweeter is then suspended in its own isolated housing to prevent midrange and bass frequency vibrations from effecting delicate high frequencies.
The midrange phase-plug controls dispersion in the critical crossover region, and allows higher power handling and dynamics.
The carefully sculpted narrow front baffle allows the speakers to throw a wide, precise soundstage and disappear into a room.
The upper baffle, cabinet top, and key internal partitions are made from D-MASS, a unique high-density material, that acts as an energy barrier and allows the midrange and tweeter to operate as though mounted in a completely separate cabinet from the woofer system.
The silverback cabinet uses 6 separately tuned internal chambers and non-parallel walls to achieve low bass extension and explosive, uncolored dynamics and transient performance. Twin long-throw 8-inch woofers are mounted in a force canceling sub-chamber with non-parallel walls to eliminate standing waves and minimize cabinet vibration.
D-MASS outriggers and custom designed isolation feet provide a stable platform for the silverback, and allow full adjustment of listening axis height in any room.
All specifications subject to change without notice.

With the Orangutan O/96 DeVORE FIDELITY brings it's award-winning blend of musicality and accuracy to a new speaker designed especially for low-powered tube amplifiers. 10" paper cone with a phase-plug powered by a motor adapted from our Silverback Reference drivers. 1" silk-dome tweeter with a powerful double-magnet motor system gently horn-loaded.
Perfectly partnered with the Shindo Haut Brion or Cortese amplifiers.
Frequency bandwidth: 25Hz-31kHz
Sensitivity: 96 dB/W/M
Impedance: 10 Ohms 8.75 Ohms minimum at 190 Hz
Dimensions: 12"d x 18"w x 35.5"h (including stands)
DeVore's new O93 is based on the original Orangutan O96. The 10" paper cone driver is from the same family of drivers and the silk dome tweeter is identical. The O93 is 10 Ohms with a (you guessed it) 93 dB sensitivity and a frequency response of 30Hz - 31kHz. Small wooden spikes couple the speaker to the floor.
A dynamic and delicate floor-standing two-way. Full-range and transparent, very easy to drive and easy to integrate into any room.
The new driver is a 7 paper-cone, coupled to a more powerful motor system. The speakers cabinet is slightly larger than that of the Super 8, and is made from solid bamboo. DeVore says the result is more bass power and slam, greater weight, and increased dynamic scale without any compromise to the Super 8s delicacy or musicality.
