His interest in home audio/video and music reproduction dates back to his childhood in Chicago, Illinois. When he built his first system from Heath and Scott kits. Later, he studied clarinet with one of the principals of the Chicago Symphony.  Although no longer an active musician, Devoe has continued involvement with the performing arts most of his adult life. Most recently he was CEO of the Augusta Opera in Augusta Georgia.  He has reviewed music and equipment for the former Ultimate Audio and more recently for ToneAudio. He has a vast collection of recorded music focused primarily on the classical repertoire. He has also given continuing education courses in Opera at Augusta State University. When not home listening to music or in his part-time practice of medicine, he addresses one of his other passions, long distance running, on the canal path in Augusta Georgia.
