Reimer Tetons vs. Tyler Linbrook Signatures
I went to do a long listening test of the Watt Puppy 8's yesterday and they were certainly impressive, though not sure I was $28,000 worth of impressed, so I've decided to revisit the $7-10 range. I heard a friend's Reimer Wind Rivers and was impressed enough to set up an audition of the Tetons next week. I've also read a lot about Tyler's Signatures and was wondering about any thoughts/experiences you all might have had with these speakers. I also would appreciate other thoughts on speakers in the under 10K price range that would be tube-friendly and handle a whole variety of music - classic rock, ambient, opera, symphonic, singer-songwriter, etc. - well. Quick, clean bass is important to me, but not as important as defined, cohesive mids and highs.
I'm using Paul G's TAD 1000 tube monos and a Shanling T200 SACD player.
