John Devore is one of HiFi’s more interesting characters. Vividly talented in the arts, well spoken and one heck of a speaker designer, the proprietor of DeVORE FIDELITY has his own YouTube channel and makes for a good interview – even in the case of a 1.5 hour runtime.
The latest episode from PartTimeAudiophile’s The Occasional Podcast hits many good talking points across John’s skillset. From discussions on driver material choice to cabinet design and getting better sound at lower levels, he really showcases a great strength from his learnings & listening over the years as a speaker designer and audiophile. The show even caps off on some of his hand sculpted artwork and his inspiration for so much creatively post-covid.
