Tekton Design Moab


Ordered a pair just now. In Dark Gray, to which Tammy immediately said, "Oh the Charcoal is beautiful!" Charcoal sounds better than Dark Gray (even though we are talking about the same color!) so Charcoal it is!  

My beloved Talon Khorus do still sound awfully good. It will be interesting to see how the Moabs stock out of the box compare with these tweaked and modded warhorses. Both the strength, and the weakness, of the Khorus is using the 10" woofer to cover so much midrange. Its a strength because it makes for a very smooth and cohesive sound. But its a weakness because its asking a lot of such a large driver to go so high. Talon makes up for it with their isobaric design. Mounted inside and directly behind the woofer is another identical driver facing the opposite direction. The idea is this relieves the front facing driver of having to compress the air inside the cabinet. This does allow for a much faster response, and is a big reason for the wonderful music the Khorus produces. 

I have a feeling however it is no match for Eric Alexander's ultra-low mass driver array solution. Only one way to know for sure. So we will just have to see!

I'm in Redmond, just east of Seattle, once ground zero in the fake CCP pandemic. At one point early on something like 70 people had died here, all within 3 miles of home. Being over 60 I was especially concerned.

At first. But being in medical it wasn't long before I figured out this is the biggest fake news since, well possibly of all time. Not only have we not swamped our ICUs and morgues but our hospitals are so empty they're asking people to take furlough, which they do because our response is so jacked up you make more money not working than working.

I never was under quarantine, always went to work just to sit there doing nothing since they have everyone too scared to go to the doctor. Meanwhile my wife sits at home making twice not working what she made working. I am NOT kidding! Twice! Thanks for the opportunity to share just how unbelievably incompetent our medical and political classes have been in responding to this giant nothing burger. 

Oh and there is no speaker made or ever will be made that can make trampling on constitutional rights palatable. Not to me. I'm funny that way. Not that you had any way of knowing, what with the pervasiveness of fake news and all you probably believe this is a health crisis. As if.

Back to audio.

Mine will be driven with the 50 wpc Melody integrated https://systems.audiogon.com/systems/8367
The Melody drives the Khorus very dynamically and to quite satisfyingly high levels so the Moabs being some 3 to 6dB more efficient should be no problem.

Then hopefully within a year or so it will be the Raven Reflection MkII.

That at least is the plan. Who knows if I keep working and we don't tank the economy there may even be a strain gauge in there some day. Pretty sweet plan if I do say so myself. Heh. 
Congratulations! The Moabs are very intriguing to me and I’d love to hear them. I was torn between buying those and the Klipsch Cornwall IV and ended up with the Klipsch. I hope you get many hours of enjoyable listening out of those bad boys!! 
Congratulations you are going to love them. I have a pair of the Ulfberhts and my only regret is that I didn’t get them in a custom color. Tekton Design speakers while they are a performance bargain can be very expensive to keep because they tell you exactly what the rest of your system is or isn’t doing.
Hey Millercarbon, I think you meant the quote below to be placed in a conspiracy rant on some political website:

In other words what the banksters and the Fed do now, The Matrix robots would be doing. But the banksters bankroll Hollywood, that’s way too much truth for debt slaves, and so instead we got a word salad shoot em up. ”

You know that you only want to open up those speakers to see if David Icke is hiding in one of them. Trolls used to steal other’s threads, now they steal their own. 
The Northwest US seems to be a hotbed of conspiracy theorists and generally hostile and angry people. Maybe it’s because of all the rain, who the heck knows? At least it’s not a CCCP virus. Then we’d really be in deep kimchi.
