Devore Fidelity's Gibbon 88

Devore Fidelity's Gibbon 88 was shown at RMAF 2011 in prototype form. The cabinet is made from bamboo and the woofer is said to be a new and improved version from what Devore has used in the past: the 7" midrange-woofer has a 50-percent larger magnet system and double the linear travel compared with the driver used in the company's previous Super 8 speaker. DeVore says the price of the new Gibbon 88 will be $5000 per pair.
