Description

The Lore is one of Tekton Design’s best-selling loudspeaker models for a reason. With recently updated and redesigned X-over, it’s even better than before. Amazingly powerful with huge solid-state and digital amplification, the Lore is one of the best loudspeakers ever designed for tubes. This speaker is perfect for analog lovers as well, but the dynamic, energetic and punchy Lore is great for anyone who enjoys loud, high power listening.

The Lore is a Positive Feedback Writers’ Choice Award Winner.

“I still maintain that the Tekton Design Lore is the best $1000 of speakers I’ve ever heard.” – Steve Lefkowicz (positive-feedback.com)

The Lore is an exercise in high sensitivity, high output, direct radiating transducers (no horns allowed), with roots firmly grounded in pro audio and cross-platformed to dovetail perfectly into the world of hi-fi.

    I finally received my Lores after what seemed like an eternity. They are well worth the wait! Mine took about 150 hours of playing at many different volume ranges, and as if by magic, they bloomed into beautiful music machines! The bass got tighter and the highs smoothed out. The mids were perfect from the beginning.
    I’ve had a lot of good gear over my nearly fifty year audiophile journey. Like Eric, I was amazed by live audio at a young age. I started with some ElectroVoice Sentry IV-B’s. I used them for listening as well as live sound reinforcement. They NEVER let me down! I’d still have them, but they were destroyed in a house fire. Then I went on to Klipsch Industrial loudspeakers. I loved them almost as much as my EV’s, but they weren’t as smooth.
    Now I’ve got my Lores. My days of playing drums and doing live sound are over, by choice. The Lores are the BEST sounding speakers I’ve ever owned! Any style of music, at any volume. Just don’t fear the FLETCHER-MUNSON phenomenon at low volumes. I love my Lores, and I’ll die a happy audiophile!

    I love the Lore speakers. They sound great and I would give them 5 stars. I am disappointed in the customer service. I ordered the speakers in November 2020, and have yet to receive the grills (August 2021). I follow up with Tekton many times with minimum responses. I have received one response and was given the excuse there is a shortage of materials. I could live with that, but I would like periodic updates.

    I own 3 pairs of Tekton Design speakers- Double Impact SE, Mini Lore and now Lore with internal upgrades. All 3 speakers are outstanding. The Lore and Mini Lore are obviously more similar the Lore just sounds like a larger speaker which you would expect. Deeper bass, fuller sounding and more dynamics which works well in a larger room. While the Mini Lores are in a 12×13 room, the Lores are in a much larger open floor plan in my main living area. No need for a subwoofer.

    If you just want a speaker that will outperform most others speakers regardless of price then you can probably stop at the Lores with upgrades.

    If I had not heard the Double Impact SEs I could totally live with these speakers, they are that good. The question that you need to ask yourself is do you want to pay $10k for a 6.5″ 2 way with magic pixie dust or under $1500 for a speaker that sounds like real music but looks like a speaker not art. If you like money (in your pocket) and music more than visual art the choice is easy.

    Equipment:
    Mac mini to Denafrips Iris DDC (I2s) to Venus II DAC, Hestia pre and Thallo amp. Isotek power conditioner.

    I have owned many great speakers in my life. Decided to research and eventually buying the Lores. Whoa! These speakers are amazing! Incredibly live sounding, full of punch but isnt harsh or fatiguing. The audax gold tweeter is near perfect and i say that coming from the famous Great Heil. They play well with all kinds of amps and have amazing depth and soundstage. Tekton made something special with this speaker. I only wish there was a nameplate on the back to establish the model and serial numbers. You cant go wrong with these!

Professional Reviews

"Whatever style, genre, and level of complexity or musically challenging selection I played, I was constantly rewarded with a remarkable playback that drew me in and kept me there for as long as I had time to listen."
Steve Lefkowicz, Positive Feedback
"The Tekton Lore is a versatile speaker. There’s nothing it cannot do very well. It digs deep and it soars to the heavens with its fabulous tweeter."
Tim Smith, Wall of Sound
"The bottom end is very full sounding, warm, luscious, yet perfectly paced, in my opinion. Then you have the lower mid range frequency which is a tad bit warm and when someone plucks a guitar, you feel that type of vibrato in the body. You feel certain instruments with your body, not just hear them. The high frequencies are so damn refined for the price range it is almost insane."
Jay Lee (Soulsik), The Next Best Thing Studio
"The top-to-bottom coherence to the Lore Be's sound across its entire frequency range is something that has to be experienced to be understood. The naturalness and ease the Lore Be's sound possesses is its defining characteristic--something many customers will find throughout Tekton's line."
Andrew Robinson, Home Theater Review
