Stereophile review of the $30,000 tekton speakers

We have had many discussions/arguments over tekton speakers in the past, mainly involving a couple posters who thought their $4000 tektons sounded better than the highest price Wilson’s and other high budget speakers.

In the latest Stereophile magazine, they did a review of the $30,000 tekton’s. In this Steteophile issue, they rate these $30,000 tekton’s as class B. When you look at the other speakers that are in the class B section, you will notice most of these speakers range in price from $5000-$8000. So it looks like you have to spend $30,000 on a pair of tekton’s to equal a pair of $5000 Klipsch Forte IV’s sound quality. 
If I compare these $30,000 class B tekton’s, to some of the class A speakers, there are some class A speakers for 1/2 the price (Dutch & Dutch 8C, Goldenear triton reference), or other class A speakers that are cheaper (Magico A5, Kef blade 2).

At least Stereophile reviews Tekton speakers as this is the second pair they have evaluated. The Absolute Sound as far as I know hasn’t reviewed any. Yes , the speakers are controversial so one would think a magazine for audiophiles would try at least one pair.

$30k speaker is not too expensive today at all compared to larger figures.

Still used market will slice at least 70% and everyone will aim to get price break on brand new one as well. How soon we see the price goes around $10k down on new one -- probably soon.
