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.

jcarcopo,

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.
jcarcopo, what is Spanish Tile?  Is it a custom color?  Did it cost extra to get that color?Thanks,Steve
@stephenurquhart Yes it's a custom color.  Eric will paint your Encores any automotive or specialty color you chose.  The high gloss finish is extra labor intensive and does normally cost $1000 more lately.  I'm not sure what current pricing is but expect to pay around $9000 or even a bit more.  Ask Eric for current pricing.
