Considering the New Tekton Design Encores? AND Owners Group - Experiences/Questions

I am the very happy owner of the first pair of New Tekton Design Encores and I thought I would create this thread to answer any questions anyone might have regarding the Encore speakers, room considerations, and associated equipment. If you’ve order your pair already, please chime in. I really want to hear what other people’s experience are with these unbelievable speakers.

I drive my Encores with both an Art Audio Diavolo SET 300b Tube Amplifier with 8wpc and I switch in my 700w Nord One-Up SE Monoblocks for non-critical listening and some big pieces of music that benefit from the extra power.

I wish all it was allways an upgrade when we dump gear and get newer "better" gear. We all have the experience of it being a downward, or merely lateral, move in musical enjoyment.
You are such an inflammatory dickhead @fetguy! If I didn't know and love you, I would hate you! 
One case comes to mind of Jcarcopo. He ditched a cheap two way speaker , and his first SET amp,  and bought a pair of Anylsis Omega planar/ribbon loud speakers.
It took him 11 years to get back to the enjoyment he HAD with the cheaper setup, and two more years to get where he is now.
It takes hard work to keep him from overshooting his goal, and ending up going backwards.....
...or selling his birthright for a cable....
