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).

@lkh007--Thanks--so -just a special order custom option?  i went on website and attempted to build and price a Moab set with the all Be tweeters and every other upgrade offered (esp grilles to cover the busy look) but couldn't get above $20K there's something additional that must be $10K...

Tektons web site states custom them and they can discuss that for and with you

@tektondesign the dealer where I bought my Gryphon amp also carries B&W, during the auditions I was doing with various amps, the 801 D4s were among the speakers used, some others were from Sonus Faber, Estelon, YG Acoustics and Borreson. I didn't end up buying the 801s only because they were too big for my room, FYI they competed easily with speakers twice their price. BTW B&W make their own drivers and cabinets, even some of the crossover parts. That you feel it necessary to denigrate the 801s and by extention B&W generally to persuade us that Tekton is a superior manufacturer is a big red flag for me. Prior to your comments here I would have been open to auditioning Tekton speakers if easily accessible - now you couldn't pay me to.
