Former Tekton owners: What have you moved on to?

I owned the Tekton Lore Reference for about a year and a half and they were great for the price. I ran them with a 50w tube integrated and it was a nice combo. For $750 I had no complaints except perhaps that the paint was cracking on one of the rounded corners. I ended up buying a pair of Gallo CL-2 for an office system on closeout direct from Gallo for $390/pair. After they were broken in I found myself listening to them more than the Tektons after awhile. I was getting addicted to the CDT tweeter.

Based on that experience I ordered the CL-3 refurbished for $650/pair shipped (crazy steal) and they were on a different level than both of the above. Sonically, one defining moment for me was listening to Joni Mitchell, Both Sides Now. (I think the Track was You’re My Thrill. )
During the intro there is a brief flute soli. With the Tektons it sounded like a really nice flute section that was very homogenous sounding and blended. With the Gallos I could hear each individual flute player and their unique tones and vibrato. The bass was also deeper and tighter on the gallos and the imaging was just amazingly holographic and wide and deep.

I know the timing of this is interesting as the Tekton hype train seems to be at full tilt right now with some of his higher models and I am curious to hear them. The 2 things that would give me serious pause and keep me from moving up the Tekton line are 1) the size and aesthetics 2) The very much "in your face" house sound that can get tiring to me.  Just wondering what others have moved on to from Tekton and what they heard that moved them in that direction.
I was educating you on the comment you made.  I did not realize you knew big dollar B&W speakers use $10-$20 crossover caps based on your post above? Being serious here. Just trying to share facts for better understanding. 
@213runnin As a former Double Impact owner, I’ve been following all the Tekton threads for quite some time and have noticed a few common themes in your posts. I’ve seen it on both Audiogon and Canuck Audio Mart.

You have done nothing but speculate and theorize negatively about how these speakers must sound and try to pass it off as a fact. Then when someone questions you or mentions this, you play all innocent and merely pass it off as your own opinion. You haven’t owned or even heard them as far as I know?

You’ve speculated that the DI’s have a non flat frequency curve based on another Tekton model’s measurements and the fact that Erik doesn’t want to publish them.

You’ve also speculated that based on your opinion of the cabinet/build quality/crossover and driver quality that this is a poor sounding speaker.

You’ve speculated that James got rid of the DI’s because he didn’t like them?

You’ve speculated that GrannyRing has never pulled $20,000+ speakers apart so therefore he can’t possibly understand the improvements he’s made with his own speakers?

You are entitled to your opinion as everybody is but please don’t confuse that with facts or experience.

@james_w514 is a hugely informative resource who has had the opportunity to experience an enormous amount of gear in all price ranges. He’s a unique resource because he’s been involved with audio gear at a consumer and sales level. He’s also very humble in his recommendations and has nothing to prove or sell. He never said he sold his DI’s because he didn’t like them, you put those words in his mouth. You’ve also been trying to press his buttons for quite some time on these forums and I believe that’s why he finally made the comment about your Rainmakers. And now you’re trying to rally other’s around this one comment.

And as for your comments toward @grannyring, that’s just pure arrogance to assume what he does or doesn’t know.

Now @213runnin, are you actually a previous owner of Tekton speakers and have something productive to say? Or would you like to keep spouting your negative guesswork?

And for the record, I’m not a Tekton fanboy and actually sold my Double Impacts.

I guess while I’m here, I can also be productive and give my experience with them.

I really enjoyed my time with the Tekton Double Impacts but ultimately, paired with my upstream gear, decided they didn’t quite have the bass response I was looking for on compressed music or classic rock. I could’ve swapped out gear to possibly better match the speakers in this regard but decided to try a different speaker.

The size was also an issue in my room and did play a secondary part in my decision.

But with the right recording, the DI’s checked all the boxes for me. Outstanding low frequency authority, a beautiful lifelike mid range with some real weight around it and a treble that was fresh but non fatiguing. Keep in mind my listening area was also not treated in any way.

My main genre preferences in order of priority is: Modern folk "ish", blues, reggae, classic rock, electronic/hip hop, country. I do a lot of listening at lower volume levels and felt the DI’s weren’t quite as dynamic/impactful at these levels as their sensitivity suggested.

Upstream gear is:
Tidal Hi Fi
Macbook Pro running Audirvana
Chord 2Qute DAC
Linear Tube Audio MZ2 pre (Upgraded tubes)
Line Mag 508 amp (Stock tubes)

I demo’ed a set of Audio Note AN-E HE LX speakers with my own gear and really liked what I heard. I felt like for my situation, these speakers will be a better all arounder. So I ended up purchasing these speakers/stands in kit form through ANK AudioNote. They have yet to arrive. And so the quest continues...

Great speakers and congrats! I have always loved ANE speakers.  Just beautiful sounding. 
Thank you sir.  I've heard the Audio Note kits aren't quite up to par of the factory made cabinets and driver/crossover matching but it's all in good fun.
