New Tekton Pendragons On The Way

I am quite thrilled and also quite nervous in having ordered a pair of the Pendragon speakers this afternoon. I am doing this mostly on the reviews and also after receiving communication from Eric Alexander, owner of Tekton Designs.

Let me go back a little. I recently changed the tubes in my Rogue Cronus Magnum integrated from the KT120 to EL34 tubes. I have fallen in love with the EL34 sound and now my present speakers sound thin unless really cranked. I attribute that to it's 89db sensitivity whereas the Pendragons have a 95 db sensitivity. This should give me a much fuller sound at lower volume levels.

This is my secondary system in my home office and I play it 8 hours a day so it gets much more use than my reference system downstairs in our living room. Many of the reviews both pro and consumer say it's the speaker for someone who loves music. So now the wait begins to receive them. Supposedly they keep this in stock now in the basic black finish which is what I got. I would be thrilled if I got them by the end of this week but that is pretty unrealistic I guess.

If anyone has experience with these speakers, I would especially like to hear. If anyone reading this has any thoughts, kindly post them.
"The speakers were broken in enough and when I put the speakers in my main system downstairs, the bass was good. It's the room, not the speakers."

Just to be sure, try whatever electronics you had good results with, in the problem room.

Not possible. The speakers are already boxed and are going out via FedEx this afternoon. I only hope the boxes survive the trip back to the factory as they were pretty beat up by FedEx when they first arrived.
I know you're relieved that you diagnosed the problem. It's a wonderful hobby when you get it right!
Hi Al,
I have to agree with you. I actually bought a Mac 402 for these speakers after using a Mc 2105 for several years, and the effect on the bass was noticeable but not by much.
I now use an 8 watt Audio Note, and there is somewhat less drive, but the bass is still very satisfying for me, as I don't make loud, deep bass a priority. The speakers sound very balanced to me, but of course I can understand some wanting deeper bass output.
The drivers were indeed purpose-built for those speakers, and are very unusual in that the magnet is a powerful neodymium one as I recall, but it is quite small!

Why does your system link go to a 2012 thread about Tvad? Can't Agon fix that?
