|My Experience With Tekton|
I emailed Tekton and asked if it was possible to have an audition in their Utah facility. I live rural, so much so, that we don't even have a zip code. Deliveries can be very difficult. Tekton does not offer in house audition. Very limiting bus...
|You can go home again|
In an odd way I may be going home. I recently moved to a small cabin in the mountains. My power source is Battery/Solar so my old rig won't cut it. Back in the 80's my first really good speakers were Klipsch Forte's, I could not afford the rela...

|Room vs. Gear vs. time of life, ...and you?|
I'm 68 and recently moved to the mountains. Our small cabin is solar powered and my old stereo system (posted here) will never function up here. I have put together a small system: Spica TC-50, Pioneer VSX-522, Jolida JD-9, SL-10 and Mac Mini. I'...
