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).




If someone wanted a nice "wooden" finish, I have seen custom automobile painters that can do truely unbelievable "wood" finishes.


Well of course, but the price would likely be more than the cost of the speakers. 

I was in IT for over 44 years and nobody wrote sentences that bad, so being in IT is not an excuse for proper grammar.

wood finish????..lipstick on a pig...but what does that have to do with a bad review of the speakers from Stereophile?

I wouldn’t say it was a bad review at all. I think it was pretty clear the reviewer said the Moab was a great speaker for the price and the BE version not so much because only marginally better. 

I’ll say it again, the Double Impacts do things I’ve not heard other speakers do. Giant killer for 3k? Maybe. Better than 10k + speakers? Probably not in most cases but they are pretty damn good for 3k. Never heard the Moab.
