My answer is no. I bought Pendragons, and have never been a Klipsch fan.
The reason I started this discussion is because I have owned Klipsch in the past and enjoyed listening to rock music but not much else. I found them bright and fatiging over time so I have been reading about the Zu and Tekton speakers and would like a speaker that can rock but also be very musical and detailed when called upon without being harsh.
Actually I resemble this observation. I was into Klipsch Heritage series for a back in 2010-11. I have been reading about Zu and Tekton, wondering if these two companies 'emphasis' on dynamics was something I might like. The answer to that question is that I very much like Zu Essence. I am interested in the Pendragon SE, but the Zu fullrange driver is giving me something 'special', and I was just noticing how nice the hit on a tom tom skin sounds so true to my ear.
Another thing that I love about my pair of Essence is the simplicity of the speaker. They sound great and they only weigh 67 lbs/each, which is wonderful compared to 120 lbs each, up to 175 lbs each from my biggest speakers.
Wondering what Klipsch model you had that sounded bright and fatiguing. And what amp & pre amp you were using. I had Klipshorns for many years and they were bright when I had solid state amps, but sounded best with low powered tube amps. I did end up with Zu Definition 4's and love them with rock, blues and jazz.
About 20 years ago I owned and loved my Klipsch Heresy speakers when I listened to primarily rock music but since then my music tastes have grown more diversed and my hearing more in tune with the music. I ran my Heresy's with a HK pre(forgot model #) and a hafler 220 amp. I started this thread to find out if the Zu line and Tekton speakers can give me the dynamics with rock music but with a more refined sound for other genres.
