Review of Tekton Pendragon-Se Loudspeaker


Hello to all I finally have over 150 hours logged on these new Tekton Pendragon-SE about the 120 hr mark with low SPL we decided to open up the volume These -SEs are now starting to open up.
I listened for detecting the crossover points hearing port noise, as we'll aberrations in the voicing-None
Sonicly these loudspeakers are a Revelation - Exceptionally well deigned and voiced. Eric hit this one out of the park my compliments. My brother and 2 friends who are casual listeners were totally draw in .
From Oldies Xmas soungs to Many rock and roll cuts all flac files on my HD. I also need to mention
The speakers are a Fantastic combination of real Earthy natural presentation
Warm in a Very natural perspective .listening to Ottmar Liebert on guitar you can here the reverb from the body if the guitar and feel the fingers sliding off the guitar strings. My brother mentioned listening to ELP
Lucky man album take pebble which was in a cave the drops of water you can clearly hear, with the echo
From the splash as the drop hits the water is better then we have heard Ever.and the drivers still have several days more to runin, the capacitors still have a solid week to fully runin.
A match made in Heaven. How could I not help to promote thesewith this much coherent in music and dynamics , Excellent front to back layering and a Huge cavernous soundstage .what started as a 6 song audition turned into a 4 hour music request.
I will say without reservation my brothers Big Pass Labs amplifier was an incredible match with
The Pendragon -SE ,one More thing the Bass at 120 hours is taught fast and and as tight as a new pair of jeans ! I have had many loudspeakers much more expensive .I can say without reservation the musicality and cohesiveness
Have no competition even at 2 times he money's. take a Maggie 3.7 give it more dynamics, and solid Bass
And it Would be close. The Tekton Pendragon SE is a rare breed and from mine and several observers
An exceptional value even against loudspeakers costing more the double there're price..
Tektons owner and designer Eric Alexander has hit this Pendragon -SE out of the park HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !! P.s if any one is in or coming to the Massachustts area message me for a listen.

I've heard so many positives about the Pendragons and was eagerly awaiting the smaller Pendragon SE's, which I now understand are the previously announced "Seas Pendragons".
They are one of the finalists I am considering for my situation. My room is 10x10, and my available nearfield listening area is even smaller. I can place the speakers 5-5.5 feet apart, and my seated, listening position is 5.5-6 feet from there, at the point of the triangle. Has anyone heard these under any conditions remotely like that? There are no reviews, that I know of out there, so any information would be extremely helpful.

I definitely want a "big" sound, even considering my nearfield listening, and know its possible. I've borrowed both Harbeth 40.1's from a friend, and also the Gallo 3.5's, which both worked well. Both are ultimately too low in sensitivity for my final amplifier scenario,as well as being a bit pricier than I would like to spend.
How much power do the Pendragon SE's really need to perform optimally? At, from what I understand, is a very accurate 95db sensitivity rating, people still seem to be using a lot more wattage than I would have expected was necessary. Even a medium powered SET should be able to work with these, I would think.
Nominal 4 ohm is a bit more of concerning for SET than the speakers sensitivity at 95W
I think you will overload your room bass-wise. Consider the M-Lore.
Thanks for the input. A couple people have mentioned the possibility of the Pendragon SE's bass overloading the room. Everything else about them sounds very appealing, but perhaps I need to cross those off the list? I know they were designed for smaller rooms, but possibly not as small as mine.

The other concern just raised was that unlike the original Pendragons, they are 4 ohms, which I didn't realize, and that can cause issues for SET amps.

As for the Lores as an option, those simply aren't capable of delivering what I want, unfortunately. I will now probably consider the Zu Omen Defs instead. I've already been told those will work well in my room.
