EDITI meant I talked directly to Eric (not Paul). should have proof read -Paul's a guy I just spoke with on the phone that has nothing to do with Tekton - guess that's why I typed "Paul"Anyway - be careful with these small, newish startups. They may or may not be in business long enough to issue refunds on returns. Cost me a thousand bucks plus return shipping to "audition" these speakers.
I know this is an oooold topic but I felt as though Tekton was left with no defenders and an update seemed appropos. As some of you may know Eric Alexander (he is Tekton Design) went through a very difficult time a few years ago dealing with family issues for which details can be found in older posts on his blog. Time has improved his circumstances and now, near the end of 2016, he is up and running with a good head of steam. Several new products have been developed & many new reviews have solidified his standing as a solid speaker designer worth considering. I had been following his progress for some time and when he offered his OB Sigma speakers he had been developing for some years at a considerable discount to "get them out there" I immediately ordered a pair. Nearly a month in now I have to say I am quite impressed! These are an open baffle design with a couple of twists & details can be found on his website. As a very experienced dipole listener (over 17 years with Apogee Duetta Signatures) I can attest to the blessings and shortcomings of a dipole speaker setup. These Sigmas are a remarkable effort in retaining the virtues of OB's while significantly nullifying the few vices. He has, of course, retained his Lore line (with further developments), his Pendragons which have also met with considerable acclaim, the "all out" 1812's and others. Check him out...I think he and Tekton are here to stay.I'll be adding a full review of the OB Sigmas here at A.C. soon.
