Those that upgraded from Tekton

What did you move on to?


I think it’s time I move on from my DIs, I really like how they sound but they are just too big and opposing for my room. Would be interested in something front ported as I have a room that is wide but not deep (speakers are 8 ft away from listening position and only 1 ft from back wall).

Was thinking Cornwall IV maybe or something from Salk but those might not be an upgrade from the DI.

Up to $5k budget and prefer used. Powered by Line Magnetic LM805i

And please don’t come here just to talk crap about Tekton……….

I demo'd a 35wpc Primaluna on my old Salk Songtowers. These have the same 88db efficiency as the Song 3 but at a tougher 6ohm impedance with a dip down to 3ohms. No problem...nice and loud...plenty of bass slam. And they sounded better on the 8ohm taps!

The Song 3 BeAT are an easier 8ohm load. All Salk speakers are relatively easy to drive with most modest/high quality power amps.

A good 30+w tube with a decent power supply will be fine. 

At 3am. this morning....thoroughly enjoying Miles D. and Linda R. on my Tekton Pendragons ( w/ 7 speaker tweeter array) and a little Makers Mark on the rocks. Was in Audio heaven with the Clearaudio Aurum Beta S cart. I love to just enjoy the Music and forget about what equipment is producing it. Heard the Volti in Tampa and was not impressed. Heard the Fritz and loved it.Alta Audio speakers are something special also. My next speakers will probably be the Cornwall IV...good luck to you.
