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!

glupson...You are a natural born diplomat. If you were asking me about an amplifier for Moabs I'm afraid I would be of little help. I never give advice on these forums because my knowledge is very limited. I'm trying to learn so I listen more than I speak. As for color, I agree with thecarpathian. I prefer the look of wood. I think my Harbeth Super HL5 Plus in rosewood are beautiful. 
@ Millercarbon

Hang in there and stay focused on what you have left to do in the future.
We will keep you in our prayers.
Love rosewood as well. But since you may not be able to order Moabs in rosewood, I'd be tempted to order carbonschwarz metallic.
cal91,
What amp do you use with your Harbeths?
cal91,

"glupson...You are a natural born diplomat."

That’s the first one. I will need to quote you in the future. Nobody will believe me.

Which brings another question. When you were choosing speakers, did you consider ATC?
