I can see your point but really don’t want to go there. I will say my prior speakers are well regarded and retail for around 9K. I owned them for about 7 yrs and if it wasn’t for a friend urging me to give the Celest’ a try I would never have sold them. Thanks to Raven’s 45 day trial offer I was able to check them out and am glad I did.
I have been a Raven fan for 5 years. They make some of the best tube amps money can buy. I owned the Reflection MK2 integrated and had them paired to SF Amati Tradition Homage Speakers. Wow is all I can say. I did do a test of Raven's new speakers and they were a finalist until I went with a horn speaker. Dave Thomson is truly a class gentleman who has developed and created an awesome line of amplifiers for anyones budget. He also has some of the most unique classic tubes if you are into tube rolling. I have just recently purchased their new speaker cables and interconnects for 1/10th of the cost of others that I have purchased. I wish them well in their new speaker line and congratulations on your purchase. You will be a happy camper.
@dgcurtis36 Thank you for this review. I placed an order for Tekton Electron SE but I'm now thinking of cancelling my order and get the Raven Celest' instead. Since you've heard both Tekton and Raven speakers, I would love to hear your opinion if the Celest' would be better than the Electron SE. I currently have Tekton Impact Monitors and I really like them and wanted to get floorstanding speakers. Any input on this would be appreciated.
@mhutama Just wanted to let you know I can’t help you with the Tekton vs Celest. I haven’t owned any Tektons. My brother has owned both. You could try him. His member id is ballhog. Also, Dave Thomson at Raven owned a pair of Double Impacts. Though he has an obvious bias, he can still provide some insights into the differences between the Celest’ and the DI’s, which I believe he owned for quite some time. Seems to me you can’t go wrong with either brand given their stellar reputations.
