I think this is the biggest problem with Internet sales of speakers. Unless you know someone who owns a set, there's no way to audition them. So it's a little bit like gambling. Especially since what a person likes differs from person to person so greatly. You kind of have to read a review and hope the reviewers tastes and yours are similar or else get ready to ship it back. I would like to think a person buying a set of Pendragon should be relatively safe, at least as safe as you can get without hearing them first. I think I'm going to take a chance.

Its a gamble but every review I have read is very positive. I would be more concerned if there was only 1 review to rely on. I bought SVS MTS-01's about 3 years ago without hearing them and have been very happy with them. It was a gamble but the return policy was reassuring.

Are you considering a HT setup or 2 channel? I recall Tekton have introduced a Pendragon 5.2 HT setup as well.

Re: Tekton Pendragon?

I read the blog about the Enzo and they are very similar to the Pendragons with smaller drivers. The 3 tweeters are aligned above the drivers compared to the Pendragons where the tweeters are aligned between the drivers. Perhaps the Enzo is a smaller footprint catering to a smaller room setup.

I'm looking at the Pendragons for L/R/C in a HT setup. But it will see its share of two channel work as well. Lately I've been listening to 5 channel stereo, so 5.2 setup looks interesting as well. But I want to get the front stage set up right first and then worry about the rest.

That would be a killer front stage and unless you already have the subs your not going to miss them except for the really low frequencies 30hz & below. Also for 2 channel music you may not use the subs as the Pendragons are full range.You could always add them later on. I would probably set the sub xo as low as you can and let the Pendragons handle everything else.

Yeah that is low but I guess we have to rely on the specs out there albeit not many. I am intrigued by the Pendragons would like to audition them.

Re: Tekton Pendragon?

Does anyone have Pendragons around the midwest that would be willing to audition them against JTR equipment? I have Noesis 228HT, and a friend of mine, carp has Noesis 212HT. I've heard great things about the Pendragons and I would like to compare them. There is a meet coming up in Iowa on April 27, where the Noesis, Seaton Catalyst, SVS Ultra Tower, Salk H2TLs and others will be directly compared. I'd love to have a set of Pendragons in the mix! Any takers?
