On order...

I ordered a pair of Pendragon 'speakers this Monday and I'm looking forward to them. I did the grey metallic paint, Mundorf caps, Cardas posts, and no grilles.

This will be the third pair of speakers I've purchased from Eric (81en and Lore-S being the others). Once they arrive and I have them set up, I'll look forward to posting a user review of the speakers and my experience.

I'm making this post (and my future review) with trepidation as I've sworn off audio forums for a while now. I used to be very active on head-fi. I've now read this entire thread...and I wish I could have some of that time back. It seems several members here expressed legitimate concern over "newbies" posting rave reviews and then disappearing. Feel free to check my post count and feedback at head-fi and my feedback on Audiogon (all under indydieselnut).

The intention of these posts is simply to add my perspective to this mix. My assumption is that anyone who happens upon this thread legitimately desiring solid information about the Pendragon speakers and Tekton as a company will be quickly dissuaded from both purchasing the speakers and ever speaking about their decision here. Both are unfortunate.

I've been involved in hi-fi as an enthusiast for the past twenty years. While I had some wonderful interactions and learned a great deal from my time on the forums, the signal-to-noise ratio deteriorated enough for me that I gave up...perhaps to my own detriment.

When the Pendragon 'speakers arrive, they will be driven by a Bryston 4B-SST2 amp, Benchmark DAC2 HGC, Yamaha CD-2100, Linn LP12, and Bottlehead Eros (heavily modified). Given my past experience with Eric's products, my expectations are very high.

I'm not sure what the post count requirement is to post pictures, but I will certainly do so if I am able. My new listening space should be a good match for these speakers as there is plenty of room to breath.

My thanks to those who have read this far. I hope my future comments can be of real value in this discussion of the Pendragon 'speakers.

That bryston amp is sweet. Any review on any speaker with a person with less then 5 posts is suspicious. Especially when they only post once in a thread. When it arrives take some pics and post them. It takes 20 minutes to post in other threads a dozen times.(for you to be able to post pics)

Then post impressions of the speaker initially. Then after a week or so post some detailed impressions referencing specific songs. If people ask questions or comment on your posts answer them. That would be a good review and respected.

I'm one of the first few owners of the Pens along with a Pen center and m-Lore surrounds. This was long before the Enzo or Seas. I am quite happy with the set up but am wondering about the decision you made to go with Pens and not the Enzo XL or SEAS with a sub. Just wondering what technical considerations crossed your mind

Your setup sounds amazing! I've had my eye on the Pens since the very beginning but never had the space. I recently moved, and my new "listening room" is actually a large, walled off section of our basement. It is about 40' long and starts out at 17' and opens up to 21' wide for most of its length.

As far as technical considerations, I really wanted to try and get back to a "fun" speaker. I've had some serious audio burn-out in the recent past. I churned through Tekton 81en, Lore-S, Harbeth C7, Harbeth P3, Blumenstein Orca, Aperion Verus Grand (as part of a theater), Salk HT2-TL, and Salk SILK. This is over the past 8 years. Part of the churning came from indecision in my family about moving. We would commit to moving, I'd sell gear, we wouldn't move, I'd buy gear, we'd commit to moving, etc. Now that we're moved and the rest of my system is "set", I just wanted to get a speaker that would put a smile on my face when I listened to music. I've never had much success integrating a sub into my music-only system, so something mostly full-range was needed. I have plenty of space and no WAF considerations in my basement, so a pair of giant monkey-coffins will work just fine :-)

The final consideration is one that might be slightly voodoo; I just wanted to go back to a paper-cone driver. I realize the Enzo has the same driver, but I really wanted that little bit of extra extension from the Pen.

Perhaps a longer answer than you wanted?

You'll be VERY happy with the purchase. I have a 20x20 living room with an open floor plan so really 20x50. I like the Pens toed in for an equal lateral triangle listening position. I also found that an aura lex subdude from Sweetwater works really well on a hard floor. I just posted a picture on the Tekton Website, check it out!
