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.

@stephenurquhart My Encores are finished in Spanish Tile high gloss.  Sorry for the delay, I have been getting over the flu.

@mijostyn Just how many Fs do you think I could care to count about your ignorant opinion?  Zero, zilch, none.  BTW the tweeters are $100 a piece and, because you're slow, that's $3k in tweeters alone which is hardly cheap considering its an $8500 speaker which doesn't account for the $200 French midbass drivers or woofers or cabinet or finish. They actual sound sublime, but you'll never know since you already made up your mind before listening to them and don't understand the array's design or know their sonic attributes from any practical experience. 


Well said! Another know-nothing who presumes to criticize a talented designer.

@roxy54 Thanks buddy!  I really love these speakers! 
I'm sure I would too. I was drooling when I read Terry London's review.
