Tekton Design's new THE PERFECT SET equals "goosebumps time"
I forgot to mention that I have finally tried the LTA Micro-ZOTL  as a integrated amplifier (around 1 watt) on the Perfect Set and it sounded terrific.  Using a 6SN7 as a power tube in the ZOTL circuit has its own virtues such as tonal purity, see...

Hey roadwarrior75,Yes, I have used the Coda #8 on these speakers.  Love the amplifier and it sounds great with the PS speaker.  As I have shared before, even though Eric designed this speaker as a prefect match with SET "flea watt" amplifiers, the...

Had a wonderful time today when two gentleman, Bon and Mark, came over to hear the Perfect Set speaker.  They brought their own musical selections to get a take on this speaker.  Both are seasoned listeners with excellent "ears" and great knowledg...

Hey jayctoy,If I have my facts straight your amplifier is around 40 watts and can use a variety of tubes.  I see no reason  way the Art Audio would not be a good match with the Prefect Set.  So far, every amplifier I have tried sounds great and so... 
Tekton Design's new THE PERFECT SET equals "goosebumps time"
Hey oldschoolsound,Both speakers are excellent at creating, if it's in the recording, a very large precisely layered soundstage that extends past the outside edge of the speakers with space/air between the instruments. Both speakers would work in ...

Here's some answers to questions or statements.Mikirob- I have heard your DeVore speakers and thought they were great.  What's remarkable about the Prefect SET is that it performs way above its $1,800.00 price point.  So, would you enjoy them tota...

Hey Ketchup,To answer your question:1) The great majority of the most respected speaker companies do not build their own drivers (Wilson/Ariel Acoustics/Totem), so this has nothing to do with the question of general build quality.2) I know at leas...

Hey dcevans,Both are great speakers, and of course would match beautifully with your amplifier.  Because of your amplifier I think both speakers would be a better match then the monitors.The Model 50 is slightly, and I mean slightly, warmer overal...

Dear kosst_amojan,You surly are a persistent propagandist, again giving misinformation and over generalizing about matters that can happen in all speaker brands.  I owned a pair back in the day of 802 B&W's, when they were still completely bui...
