Tekton Design's new THE PERFECT SET equals "goosebumps time"


Just got in house for review for hometheaterreview.com Tekton Design’s new, The Perfect SET, which is close to 100dB efficient and never dips below 8 ohms, which Eric built to be used with SET "flea watt" amplifiers. It is a front ported design using a 12 inch woofer and his patented array of small transducers that function as a midrange driver with a single tweeter in the middle. I set them up in a system with a great 2A3 SET amplifier and found them so superlative I did not stop listening for over five hours! Taking about "goosebump time" the music was so beautiful that
I lost track of time.

These speakers have all the virtues of the other Tekton speakers, speed, utter transparency/micro-details, great soundstaging, and that special "aliveness" that I experience when I listen to my Ulf’s. What really amazed me was what the Perfect SET was delivering on the bottom end frequencies, subterrainian/taut powerful bass, that was shaking the room, all coming from at most 2.5 to 3 watts.

If you love SET amplifiers this speaker is a match made in heaven, and remember this pair just arrived and is not totally burnt in yet.

In the face of Tekton's massive sonic superiority (their 100-strong R&D department cranks out new designs like hotcakes), all other speaker manufacturers should just surrender, pack up shop, and slink away.  I can see no other alternative...
Wow!  Low-mass drivers.  Amazing how nobody ever thought of that before.
@d2girls It's not just the dust you have to worry about when returning; any fingerprints will bring an even greater deduction from the refund.
The smaller the company and the more "new models" they crank out in short order, the more you've got to question how much of a "technological breakthrough" each one of them actually represents, however much of an audio genius the sole owner/designer/manufacturer happens to be.
