Single Ended Triodes (SETs), the ultimate tube lovers dream.


I've looked at their home page before. I have never heard them. All of the modestly priced, "pure" full range speakers I have listened to do have a pretty nice mid-range that is just forward enough to suit my preferences, but every last one of those I have heard have jagged roll-off in the treble that is annoying to me. My current "affordable" speakers have ribbon tweeters combined with Fostex full-range drivers and a cross-ever between the two to replace the roll-off from the full-range drivers with the ribbon tweeter.

But, of course, there may be exceptions at the affordable end of the spectrum, but it takes a lot of "sampling" to find them. This is at a time, when virtually all of the big shows in the EU and the US are turning 95% high end SS power and 4% high-end tubes, most of which is PP, and the remaining 1% generally high-end SET, a good portion of which focuses on the 70, 211, and 845.

Another brand I almost tried, unheard, was Tekton, but I was a little leary of their claims, prices, and non-professional reviews. Who knows, I may have missed the real deal. Decision-making under uncertainty can lead to real regrets, so it's always best to slow down and be conservative when you come to a sharp bend in the road without a sign.
