Re: Tekton Pendragon?

I also read those reviews and there is allot of buzz about the Pendragons. Andrew Robinson (Home Theater Review)indicated these are his new reference speakers and that they compare with speakers with a much higher price point.

It looks like they are in Utah by the area code. I heard though a California friend/installer that they sounded "good" at a show he attended. He did not stay to listen at length though. I got the impression he was not looking at speakers in the $2500.00 price range for his lineup and went on.

I have been looking at those for a while now and hopefully I'll be upgrading to them by the end of the year.

For lower price ranges they offer the Lore and M-Lore which have also received glowing reviews.

Re: Tekton Pendragon?

If you order speakers from Tekton they ship without speakers grills unless you request them and charge $75 per grill. Also delivery takes several weeks to receive the gear. Just make sure you do your due diligence before you order.

I read on another forum that, the price for the grills is negotiable. Also heard that once you received his speakers it's well worth the wait. Well you know how the saying goes, one man's trash is another man's treasure so hearing is believing. They offer a 30 day trial, if you're not satisfied, they will take the product back but you're responsible for the cost of return shipping. The reason it takes so long to deliver the speakers is because the owner/designer builds each speaker buy hand personally. He doesn't hire any help and each speaker is tested by him and must meet his standard before they ship out. These speakers are somewhat out of my budget but I've decided to just wait and save more. From the responses I'm assuming no one owns them if they do please comment.

Have yet to read anything but recommendations when talking about any version of this speaker. I hope somebody asks the powers that be on this site to request a pair for review. These speakers have been called game changers. It would be nice to know that if your in the market for some speakers then you should look no farther.
