  • Allow Myself to Introduce, Myself

    Hiya,

    Been looking for a new home after being on a couple of those other sites over the years. My name is Matthew from Portland, Ore.. We have a couple small systems that are detailed out in my signature below. The house is filled with all sorts music and formats -- streaming Qobuz and our FLAC library, while also enjoying CDs and records.

    I'm eyeing the upcoming DeVore O/Baby speakers as the next big purchase. Look forward to learning from this community!

    Cheers,
    Matthew

      Thank you! Bluesound is a no brainer especially for the cost.

      Thanks! I wish Heed was brand that received more mentions. I've had the Obelisk for nearly 3 years and still impresses me.

      I borrowed an Elixir for a few months and it was a great integrated amp. Their phono stages are really nice, too.

      I purchased the Obelisk integrated from Gig Harbor Audio in Washington. Due to space constraints I chose to add the internal phono board add on, but the dealer also offered me Heed’s external phono stage for the same cost. Few years later I’m in a bigger house with a dedicated listening room. I very much regret opting for the internal phono board and not the separate component.

    Welcome to our corner of the Net!

    Had a chance to hear John’s O’s? Always amazed how he gets such big sound from those diminutive speakers!

      Thanks, Myles! I had once demoed the O/93s at Gig Harbor Audio up in Washington. I loved how they saturated the room with amazing sound. I remember listening to Jeff Parker Trio “Mainz” and the wall of sound being produced sucked me in. I have been following John DeVore’s story and work for years. With the announcement of the new O/Baby the cost of entry is closer to my wheelhouse.
