Not everyone likes the Lores, but most people who buy them do. For $1,000 they are considered a good bang for buck speaker as are most of the Tekton products. I owned a pair a few years ago and liked them.
Despite the hyperbole and somewhat over the top "patent" associated with the Double impact, it sure looks like a lot of speaker for $3,000 and I would guess is very competitive at that price in the market today.
I like my Lores quite a bit. Are they perfect? Nope. I cheated by re-doing the crossovers with some boutique parts that made a noticeable improvement, and even after that they're still not perfect. But even in un-modded form they brought across the emotion and soul of the music. My last pair of $12k speakers didn't. The $10k pair before that didn't either. Both were far more accomplished in the usual audiophile parameters, and both were far less accomplished at drawing me into the art of the performance. It's been a very long time since I had a speaker that generates music so well. So I forgive the Lores for their flaws and enjoy them for what they do well. And when I want to, I can blast them to beyond-stupid SPL's with 20 watts of SET power. Not that I do it often, but it's damn sure fun after consuming quantities of imported libations. :) And, oh yeah, they were $1k. Add $300 and some of my labor on the crossovers.
Now the big question: If I had spent $13k on them instead of $1.3k, would I be as forgiving of their flaws?
I have to agree. I've had the M-Lore and a friend still uses the Lore in his HT set-up. I've found both to be well voiced and a good value at their respective price points. On the other hand, I pay little or no attention to the hype or claims made on the website.....which are about as useless as the comments of the "critics" here who have never heard the speaker.
A comparison with Golden Ear Titans will be enlightening.
