Throwing more and more drivers (very cheap ones for $3000 per pair) into the mix doesn't usually add to the quality of the sound produced.
A well engineered 3 way is usually better sounding than a speaker with 10 or more drivers. I'd suggest that the only section of a 3 way system that ever needs duplication of drivers is the bass - and only then if undersized drives are required. The exception my be a d'Appolito design for mid speakers.
Here's feedback from a professional reviewer who has a pair of these speakers and others too
Just a little ditty on how orgasmic they are.
I'm always wary when something is labeled "professional review".
What's odd, is for all the self yanking about these speakers, they already mention that a upgraded version will be available through dealers soon.
Which dealers are you referring to? It was my impression that Tekton has no dealer network and sells direct to the consumer.
Audio Archon. Never heard of them, but he wrote that in the thread on audiogon. Did you read the thread?
I read the thread and I don't consider Audio Archon a Tekton dealer. They appear to be a mod shop. They stated that this speaker (in its factory form) will be available to the consumer directly from Tekton and that the modded versions only will be available from Audio Archon.
We're opening a whole different can of worms when we start talking about modded products. That's not a route I choose to take when discussing the merits (or lack thereof) of a particular component. It just clouds the issue.
I believe that Eric Alexander made a big (and hopefully not fatal) mistake when he posted all of that blather about patents, etc. If this new speaker is anywhere near what the (so far) sketchy reports claim it is Tekton should have a winner on its hands without the unnecessary hype. The hype is nothing but troll bait. Eric should have known better.
