@millercarbon¬†Thanks for clarifying. I knew I was on the right path, but I'm glad you clarified this for me. ūüėȬ†

@charles1dad Charles I feel like a heretic buying the XA25! It‚Äôs the first solid-state amp I‚Äôve owned that I actually was intrigued with sonically within a few seconds of hearing the vocals and midrange play even while it was cold right out of the...

@ditusa¬†I drove my Encores to 94db peaks and 90db continuous spl from 10ft away with only 13 pc not 8wpc when using my Art Audio Diavolo.¬† Tom Willis installed the larger power transformer modification to support a 300bxls tube. Rather than argue ...

@jsoku I have been running source direct from a DAC happily for 20 years! I did try a Ayon Audio Stealth DAC which has a Tube Preamp in it and I felt like it robbed me of too much detail. That's entirely up to you, some people like to fatten and s...

@jsoku I come from SET Tube Amplifiers for over 21 years. I love them for their glorious midrange. The XA25 was purchased from Moon-audio.com on a 30 day trial with a 10% restocking fee if I returned it, but my good buddy whose an audiophile said ...

@stereo5¬†Thanks for kind words. My apologies for any misunderstanding on my part prior, I wasn't trying to be dismissive and I didn't know you had heard the Pendragons or had a negative experience. I only can speak to the Double Impacts and the En...

@sedond¬†The link I provided was provided from a friend who also owns the Encores who had taken his tweeter array apart because he's crazy. (He even sent me a ghastly picture with all them tweeters hanging out, I felt sorry for the array...lol).¬† H...

@kingdeezie¬†I just realized you said you do like nearfield.¬† I think you would be okay, you just need to mess with the toe-in more aggressively. You should be okay technically.¬†

@kingdeezie¬†Well, I'm reclined at 10'. I'm at ~8' unreclined which is more intimate and revealing. The soundstage of course shrinks a bit though. 6' is pushing it, but not undoable. These aren't exactly bookshelves ūüėĀ, but maybe I'd call and ask Er...

@sedond You might very well be right on the tweeters for the Moabs/Ulfs since I‚Äôve no idea, but I always wanted to believe he used better tweeters in the DIs SE vs the standard DIs, but I may be totally wrong because my memory is not very good. I ...

@stereo5¬†Touchy? I'm not sure what you read that you took the wrong way, but I think you're reading entirely too much into my reply. I would ask you to please keep politics out of the thread, it's off topic, serves no purpose, and just causes prob...

@stereo5¬† Great, thanks for stopping by. Many people who have owned speakers costing many times the price of the Tektons, own Tektons.¬† I am one of them.¬† Reviewers have said as much as well, but I understand since you haven't heard them.¬† I can o...

@sedond¬†@whacky¬† ¬†I always thought the woofers were simply placed on the bottom of Encores so that the treble tweeter height would be ideal. If he located the woofer and the midbass driver beneath it it push the entire array down considerably.¬† Th...

I've never heard the Ulfberhts, but I'm absolutely sure they have several pluses over the Encores. I pushed Eric to build me the Encores 2 years ago because I wanted a more room friendly and more asthetically proportioned speaker similar to the Ul...
