    Tekton Design Speakers

    I think that I have found the perfect amp for Tekton speakers,the Pass Labs XA-25. I have been using one with the Studio Monitors for a while now, and it is simply amazing. As good as the Triode Labs 2a3 was, the XA-25 just beats it across the board. Explosive dynamics, wonderous speed and...

    Tekton Design Speakers

    Another review of the Double Impacts:http://v2.stereotimes.com/post/tekton-designs-double-impact-loudspeakers/ I sold my DI's to a member of a local audiophile society just a few weeks ago. He got rid of his Klipsch speakers after listening to the DI's. Tekton seems to be gaining ground.

    Tekton Design Speakers

    The tweeter domes got pushed-in when I lifted the speaker out of it's box, they are soft rubber and should pop back out. Hasn't effected the sound, though. I believe the drivers are higher grade than the Impact monitors, but I can't say for sure. The tweeters definitely are. The song is...

    Here is some video of the Studio Monitors in action, plus the setup: Note: the sound is kinda loud. Enjoy!

    Tekton Design Speakers

    Right now, they are on some generic Pangea stands that I got from Amazon. I will probably get some larger stands for them because they are so heavy and the speakers are quite wide. Don't want them to fall off. This setup is in a small bedroom, with the speakers located a few feet away from the...

    Tekton Design Speakers

    These are great for nearfield use, but they are 45 pounds each. You would need a large desk. They sound real nice on just a couple watts output from the Triode Labs 2A3 amp that is powering them. These took about six weeks to build and ship. Tekton is slammed with orders right now. They have...

    Tekton Design Speakers

    I got the PMD Studio Monitors today. They are interesting little speakers that I will have fun playing with over the next several weeks. I hooked them to some old Levinson and Triode Labs gear that I had on hand. Awesome midrange on them, and surprising bass response, so far. May post a video later.

    How much for the amp without the tubes?

    Tekton Design Speakers

    I placed an order for the PMD Studio monitors a week ago and am looking forward to trying them out. I wanted some small speakers for a bedroom setup and these fit the bill. If Eric ever releases the Mini-Ulfberhts, they will be the speakers to get for most set-ups.

    Focal Utopia General Discussion

    Found out that the problem was not with the Focals as I had feared. It was a noisy tube in my Teton amp. Quite a relief as I had bought the Focals as an open-box deal off of Ebay. Saved a good bit of money, but no warranty. I have to say that the Teton pairs perfectly with these headphones, much...

    For 6AS7G tube rollers here .....

    Thanks for the info. My Amperex tubes look just like the ones you have posted. Come in the Amperex boxes, too, with Tektronix test stickers on them. So these were made by Svetlana?

    Do the Utopia's pair well with the Apex Teton amp? Any tube recommendations?

    Tekton Design Speakers

    The DI's beat the Sonus Fabers and the Martin Logans. I can't comment on the Focals. The Double Impacts' sound depends on what components you hook them to. If you hook them to a small tube amp, you will get a sweet, emotional sound that is very pleasing for jazz and vocal recordings. If you hook...

    Tekton Design Speakers

    Basically, the Double Impacts give you 70% of the sound that the Ulfberhts do. The Ulf's excel at bass and detail. They have the finest bass I've ever heard, not just more bass, but very refined and textured bass. They will go as low as your other components will allow. Tekton describes them as...

    Tekton Design Speakers

    Some footage with the grills off: The Ulfberhts are Tekton's flagship speakers, I wouldn't put too much stock in those prices. The DI's and the Ulfberhts are much better sounding than the Pendragons, the tweeter arrays on them are the secret to their sound quality. If you want a more compact...

    Tekton Design Speakers

    It's a miracle that I got grills, as Tekton hates to make them. I was talking to Eric at Tekton several months back about my Double Impacts when he mentioned that he was working on something awesome and wondered if I would be interested. I said hell yes and placed my order, but I was firm in...

    I didn't take any pictures before setup. I will try to shoot more video of them up close next time I post to Youtube. For scale, that cabinet in the videos is 7 feet tall and 13 feet wide.

    I uploaded some videos of the Ulberhts on Youtube: Keep in mind this is with a crappy camcorder. I will post some new vids with the Allnic preamp and BHK amps I just installed.

    I don't have any pics of the setup, but the speakers are over six feet tall. 15 tweeters per channel!

    Tekton Design Speakers

    After months of enjoying the Double Impacts, I decided to upgrade to Tekton's ultimate speaker, the Ulfberht. These things are monsters, roughly the size of coffins. But the sound is glorious, easily the most natural-sounding speaker that I have come across. Instruments have proper tone to them...

    Tekton Design Speakers

    I've compared them to Legacy and Thiel speakers, as that is what I had before. In online reviews they have been compared to Golden Ear Tritons, Magnepans, ZU Audio and B&W speakers. The Tektons beat the others quite handily. They have a superb midrange, and wonderful dynamics. The Double Impacts...

    Life after Yggdrasil?

    I've had an Yggy in my main system for about 2 years now, and like it very much. I already upgraded my speakers, amp, transport and cables. I see a lot of glowing praise for the Lampi's, and just wondered if they may offer a decent improvement over the Yggy. Specifically, do the Lampi's offer...
