Another excellent speaker (said to be budget audiophile class) I would definitely consider also with direct marketing, although a bit more expensive but made here the US is SVS.... For example the SVS Prime Series Tower is $499 ea. where the ELAC Debut F6 Tower is $379 ea. link here http://www.svsound.com/pages/prime-systems



So, back in the real world, If I were to really pare down, I'd spend the most on speakers, either the SEAS Pendragons (best sound for the money on the market IMO) or go with a set of used electrostatics, like Magnepan. Trust me, this where spending the most percentage on speakers pays off.

.You see where I believe the speaker is the most important part?
It would interesting to hear the Tekton SEAS Pandragon , the web sight does not say the actual type of cabinet ? I notice Tekton also make a studio Monitor (albeit not w/SEAS) .... Having SEAS drivers in my Amphion studio monitors I do think they are outstanding accurate transducers[/QUOTE]

I admit I haven't heard the Pendragons in person, but I have SEAS drivers in my Joseph Audio Pulsars, and given the dimensions of the speaker and cabinet (I'm assuming composite wood) I have to imagine that they would thump the bejeezus out of my house. The reviewer mentions something along the lines of "great for rock music" so I interpreted that as they were great at higher volumes.

Great on Rock music, ya either "great loud" or really shines on 3 power chords in 57 variations

Actually being a child of the 60's I love good Rock n Roll. like Neil said "Rock and Roll will never die"

Just wondering if I'm looking at the wrong part of his site.
Here's another site where I can find good deals on used speakers.
