    Default Tekton Lore. Tekton Pendragon. Something CRAZY. Help.

    $2500 Budget.
    Keep hearing crazy good things about Tekton. Used Lore's in NJ.

    Best speaker I ever heard in my life was a Taylor Accousics Linbrook system. I think in part it was just..SO BIG and Effortless. I love my Outlaw LCRs... but no comparison.

    So, is the Lore a good thing to checkout? What is your super speaker for under $3k?

    I don't believe those will compare to Linbrooks...at all.

    Well. Maybe not. I owned some Totem Hawks once and do not want to have speakers like that again. Excellent at Jazz / folk but that is it. Interested in full range speakers that have enough driver surface area to do the job.

    So are you saying that the LSI's and the HSU sub aren't getting the job done ?

    Maybe your a big speaker kind of guy, like me. I use Legacy Focus 20/20's and they definately get "the job done". Used around 3 g's is in your price range.

    Maybe..

    Right now I have Outlaw LCR and Polk Lsis for surround.

    Have had totem hawks.

    The LCRs are *awesome
    * for what they are.... But not like those linbrook's fullness.

    I have a pair of lore's ATM. I really like them. Very dynamic and punchy. Vocals are very lifelike. Bass is tight and accurate. They seem to get the tone of the instruments just right. I have driven them with a vintage 60 wpc Luman SS and a 6 wpc SE valve amp.

    A great all round sounding speaker. They have pushed my reworked RTA11 TL into a second system.

    They are a very different speaker though. The sound stage is more upfront compared to the Polks. Not in your face but you will feel like you have moved a fair few rows closer to the stage. The music has a more "live" presence to it.

    For the money you can't go wrong.
