You may not know, but you most likely already do, that I'm friends with John DeVore of DeVore Fidelity
. I also own his speakers, The Nines, and they are an integral part of my music listening and enjoying, daily. While we're disclosing, I am also friends with Jonathan Halpern who is the importer of the Line Magnetic line. So I refrain from reviewing anything imported by his company, Tone Imports
, since you know we cannot tell the truth about anything to do with people we like (what about people we don't like?). So while I completely enjoyed my time in the DeVore Fidelity room listening to the Line Magnetic 502 DAC ($1,800), Line Magnetic 518 IA amplifier driving the DeVore Fidelity O/96 speakers ($12,000/pair) I will not say anything about the sound.
