“Colorful yet uncolored, the DeVore Orangutan O/96 is the loudspeaker many of us have been waiting for. …The O/96 is here to stay—as both a commercial product and as a well-loved part of my playback system.”Art Dudley, Stereophile Magazine
“A transparency to source that will challenge the preconceptions of many listeners, timbral accuracy that often left me shaking my head at its realism, and astoundingly deep, powerful bass: these are some of the hallmarks of John DeVore’s O/96 loudspeakers in my opinion.”Rafe Arnott, Part-Time Audiophile Magazine
“I got to play some very lovely flute solos courtesy of the great man — Rimsky Korsakov, Borodin and others. My sound was replicated to perfection — every musical inflection heard, stress here, crescendo there, and sweet diminuendos. I’ve not heard my own sound on a speaker sound so natural. Most speakers add something, but the DeVores left me alone. Very impressive.”Anthony Kershaw, Audiophile Magazine
“The Orangutan is a great looking and immensely enjoyable loudspeaker that’s a gift to the tube amp lover, it can turn a handful of Watts into a living, breathing musical experience that you will be hard pressed to turn off. That is what living is all about.”Jason Kennedy, The Ear Magazine
“It was the misunderstanding of that time that painted the orangutan as rough, wild powerhouses. John DeVore’s naming of his speakers corresponds instead to the modern understanding of these animals: wild and strong certainly, at the right moments. But infinitely delicate and sensitive at other moments. Making this connection to both is so outstandingly successful in the 0/96, I would like to award a well-deserved imperial scepter, crown and rule over the high-end landscape.”Uwe Kirsch, Image HiFi Magazine, Germany
“The sound I got out of these gorgeously put-together boxes was shockingly deep and stunningly refined — I bought the demos immediately as I couldn’t bear to let them out of my house.” Scott Hull, Part-Time Audiophile Magazine
“If you listen in the dark or with your eyes closed, with the right recordings you may think and feel the music is coming from musicians and not speakers. The sound is energizing, life-size, full of emotion, and just flows into the room. …There is no way a two way with a 10 inch woofer and a one inch tweeter should sound like these speakers. How do they sound so coherent, how do they sound so big, how do they sound so alive? I don’t know, but I do love it even if I can’t explain it.”Jack Roberts, Dagogo Magazine
“The factor most responsible for reproducing the fundamental midrange frequencies at such high quality is an outstanding, almost-holographic dimensionally, which allows us to listen to our favorite jazz trio in the privacy of our listening room as though witnessing a private performance.”Miguel Castro, HiFi Live Magazine, Spain

Omen Center, like all Zu products, is built around the critical human voice (A1, 55Hz, through A6 and all the possible harmonics, to approximately 10kHz). Serving this critical region of tone is Zu’s 5th generation 260 standard motor 10.3” [260mm] nanotech/paper composite full-range driver. And despite what many audio snobs might think about it based on price, Omen loudspeakers are true state-of-the-art loudspeaker systems—two-channel stereo or multi-channel home theater.
