So I posted a few weeks ago in this forum and had said that I had been waiting six months for a pair of speakers from Eric. I got frustrated a lot, actually emailed him twice to say I was going to cancel but decided to give him one last chance. Today, I finally got a call from Eric and he told me that the speakers will be on their way tomorrow.
I have not listened to the Lore-S before, but an artist friend of mine uses earlier Tekton Design speakers for his sound installations. He swears by them, and honestly after having listened to B&W, Martin Logan, Aperion Audio, Golden Ear and Paradigm, I have to say I agree with his opinion. There's just something - in very non-specific descriptive terms - more "real", more present with music from Eric's speakers than I have not found with other speakers.
Would I wait six months again for them? I don't know. Eric has hired new people to work for him recently and is shipping orders out quicker. But Eric has been through a lot recently, and a lot beforehand, in order to be working a job which he loves. I think that alone is enough reason to support him and his company.
