In today’s world, we have grown accustomed to instant gratification and an obsessive addiction to the yearly next best thing. Old school craftsmanship has become so rare: name one speaker company manufacturing cabinets from real wood, not MDF plus veneer. It’s exceedingly expensive, requires genuine artisans with wood working experience not to mention very specific tooling and above all is extremely labor intensive. Naturally, the world has moved away from those old guiding principles with very few exceptions. Yet it is precisely these methods that will ensure longevity beyond the norm. I have often said that even as today’s cars have become such unbelievable technology driven monsters, not one of them will work and function in thirty, forty, fifty years time. I can pretty much guarantee that these DeVilles will play just as well in 2060, as they do today. Finally, if I didn’t already have a house full of speakers, I’d buy these. I really would. They sing, they dance, they connect you to the music. That’s what matters. For a first effort, these are terrific examples of the old school world of manufacturing pride. If that’s your calling, I’d run to a showroom to audition them.
