Early 2005, a prototype was made of a loudspeaker that later would be called the Davone Rithm. Eager to break high-end audio traditions, the final Rithm was made from bend plywood with a timeless design and a high quality coaxial driver. The Rithm caused quite a stir both in and outside the audio industry, after its introduction at the CES in Las Vegas in 2008. Davone even got a Trekkies following due to the (coincidental) resemblance of the Rithm to the Star Trek logo. Nontheless, the Rithm laid the foundation of Davone having timeless design and the ability to satisfy the tastes of audiophiles. Several magazines, among other Stereo Japan, presented the Rithm on their cover.
