Article: Review | Fleetwood DeVille Loudspeaker System


Recommended Posts

I heard these and was left very unimpressed. These are not ~$10k speakers. To each their own I suppose but they were very shouty and unforgiving of anything not perfectly recorded. Too many better options at their price point. I have no doubt they will be the "IT" product of the season lol

Thanks.  You've got to think you're paying a premium for the craftsmanship and small volumes.  But it sounds like you're saying these don't sound like $5,000 speakers either.  That would be a bigger problem

“ Old school craftsmanship has become so rare: name one speaker company manufacturing cabinets from real wood, not MDF plus veneer.”

 

I completely agree about real wood cabinets, to name one speaker manufacturer look at Daedalus Speakers out of Washington State who has been doing this since their inception.  Not only does Daedalus use real hardwood they consult the customer on their preferred variety of wood and the unique characteristics found in that variety. 

 

GREAT point... I knew there had to be at least a handful... it's an art from long lost....... There is also Pearl Acoustics out of the UK.

Sorry but, IMO, another advertisement presented in the guise of a "Review".

I like Danny’s style of reviews. It’s different from mine and the other AS writers. It’s definitely not formulaic and adds some personality and color. 

Te each his own. IMO, that colour is "rose". I have no problem with someone writing an opinion piece in the form of a column or blog with nothing but effusive praise for a manufacturer, his history, and his product. Just don't call it a "Review".

This really comes off to me mostly an Advertorial with not a lot of substance.  Danny makes it sound like Oswald Mills is the only speaker maker keeping the flame alive for craftsmanship with wood.  Not true, as the comments above illustrate.  And, should we be impressed that some "Hollywood peeps" are into to OMA?  

 

I think OMA's designs are really interesting and are deserving of more than a hyperbolic pr piece.
