The DeVille loudspeaker is an extremely high quality, compact, two way design made from sustainably harvested, solid Pennsylvania ash hardwood that has been torrefied (thermally treated for tone and stability.) It is the most powerful and efficient design possible for its size, using real professional drivers capable of much lower distortion and higher power handling.
Basically, the DeVille is like having a concert at home; you can turn up the volume far beyond any comparable loudspeaker. These are also the perfect speakers for home theater and gaming. Because when you want them to be loud they need very little power and they don’t run out of steam. We can provide you with a range of excellent options for an amplifier/wifi streamer or other source, but just about any amplifier will run the DeVille’s, from low powered tube to high power solid state.
The DeVille comes in standard black with natural, solid wood horn, top, and bottom; also offered in a wide range of finishes, including Farrow and Ball paints from England.
The DeVille is also available in a near limitless range of custom finishes. Shown here are antiqued leather, Japanese indigo dyed denim, and handmade Japanese washi paper. Other limited edition finishes will be offered periodically, and feel free to contact us if you want to create your own special version of the DeVille.
An optional tripod floor stand is available in two versions, and black or natural wood finishes.
We designed a new, six inch thick, solid wood conical horn with a proprietary phase plug, which disperses the high frequencies and prevents internal reflections and cancellations of the sound waves. And like OMA, the wooden horn is treated with hand rubbed beeswax and natural linseed oil for an heirloom finish.
The DeVille is bottom ported and comes with a base for placement on a stable surface such as a cabinet, table or shelf.
The rear panel of the speaker is fashioned from a solid sheet of phenolic, a composite material chosen for its anti resonant characteristics.
