Considering the New Tekton Design Encores? AND Owners Group - Experiences/Questions
Protoss71,On the surface I can understand your concern/skepticism. The 30 pound weight reduction (roughly 17%) per speaker isn’t insignificant. Could it be due to smaller magnet assemblies/inductors/ cabinet/bracing? I do not believe that Tekton w... 
Member Almarg passed away last night
David, Thank you so much for your role as the conduit between Alford and Margaret and the Audiogon community. This is simply sad news and I’ll miss Al greatly. My sincerest sympathy to Margaret  the entire  family. Charles 
Update on Audiogon Member Almarg
The heartfelt and sincere tributes posted by members are a crystal clear reflection of the caliber of person Alford is. I suspected something wasn’t right when he didn’t respond to a recent personal email that I had sent him. This wasn’t like him.... 
Which Tekton???
dlongj75, I look forward to your follow up post after you’ve spoken with Eric. As has been pointed out above so many speaker models with seemingly much overlap (On paper). I’m curious as to what he recommends based on your specific objectives. Pro... 
Which Tekton???
Hi Corelli,Saw your reply after I posted , yep, I believe you are right in that it's a 3 way design. Your rationale as related to Rock music is sound. Bigger woofers with the Perfect SET versus the Electrons two 4" mid bass driver addition. Fun to... 
Which Tekton???
Jetter, You raise a good point regarding the driver array of the Perfect SET, this would suggest a 3 way rather than 2 way configuration. Could have sworn  that I read somewhere it’s a 2 way speaker. As many have noted, ask Eric he knows 😊. Intere... 
Which Tekton???
"Everyone here got it wrong" not really. An 8 ohm load is an easier speaker load to drive (And less distortion) compared to the lower 4 ohm which will demand more current. Now with the additional information provide here it is clear that Tekton sp... 
Which Tekton???
Hi Rushfan71, That’s a valid point in regard to the Electron and why I feel either speaker has its own specific advantages to tout. For example the Perfect SET is an 8 ohm speaker load and the Electron is a 4 ohm load. Ralph (Atmasphere) has point... 
Which Tekton???
Hi Tyray, I based my opinion on the fact that the Perfect SET (PS) is a 2 way design (1 crossover) and in contrast the Electron is a 4 way design per Tekton.  Yes the PS was made to be able to  pair with low power SET amplifiers . In addition  Tek... 
Which Tekton???
I believe that you would be nappy with either speaker. You only need one. I agree with the rationale of Roxy54. The pure simplicity of the Perfect SET is very alluring. Owners word of mouth satisfaction is consistently high.Charles

oldhvymec,God bless you and I wish you a successful outcome with your upcoming surgery. The insights and graciousness from Keith,Deborah and Paul are helpful to this thread and appreciated. I wish the posters of multiple, redundant and snarky comm...

Speedbump6,Yes, this seems so easily self evident. Begin with a solid base/foundation (Stock) and if one so chooses improve and upgrade from that initial point. Many people are happy with the stock level (Car/speaker/etc.)of performance and have n...

I suppose it is a matter of how one wants to view something. I interpret the ability of a speaker or any audio component to easily reveal tweaks or changes made within an audio system as a positive attribute. Anyway it’s quite clear to me that Kei...

pinwa, good to see you will have an opportunity to hear the Moabs today. I agree with nwres, actual listening experiences are very insightful and a valuable asset for this thread. I respect MC’s willingness to invite fellow music lovers into his h...

Hello Keith and Deborah,Thanks for taking the time to provide your listening impressions of the Tekton Moabs. This does offer a refreshing counterpoint to  those who render comments on this thread  who either haven't heard these speakers or heard ...
