Stephen, I didn't know Eric would veneer Pens, any idea how much extra?
Any of you lucky guys who own a pair of pendragons happen to live in the Los Angeles area and wouldn't mind being a kind soul and letting a fellow home theater enthusiast intrude? After hearing everyone rave on this forum I just have to hear for myself. But I'm trying to avoid the cost (and the pain) of taking a trip to Utah. Eric is located far from salt lake city. I can offer free dinner if that helps!

Monitor Audio RS8'S
Monitor Audio RSLCR

I am dying to upgrade and add new speakers to my current setup, after reading your review i was even more confused thanks for that lol, i have heard the 800 diamond series wow,Aerial Acoustics Model 9, I have heard signature S8 from paradigm, PL300 from monitor audio, and a couple others.
I will eventially have a 7.1 setup, i will eventually upgrade my receiver, but after reading your review about upgrasding just for 4K pass through is not worth it not sure now. I will buy a TV first thats what i need right now, my 46inch tv has to go. So the comparison about pendragons are they really that phenominal.
I am 70% HT and 30% Music but I listen to SACD's as well how did they sound with SACD's? When will you get the centre channel for review, because i know currently the Aerial Acoustics Model CC5 and the sig C5 paradigm are probably one of the best out there that i have heard and maybe legacy audios marquis centre, I have heard the C5 from paradigm and they are amazing. Can you post pics of the back setup of the pendragons.
I will eventually get a 2nd sub maybe depends on how these babies are, since i have the sub25 do i really need another sub? i have a huge room in the basement, eventually the next house a dedicated hometheatre room. Are they better than the paradigm sig 8 and the PL300 from monitor audio? well 800 series i have heard the top 2 in the line and they are amazing. I just cant believe what i am reading about the pendragons, th eprice point is crazy, i was also looking at the new GXline from monitor audio.
Last question the other speaker i was looking at was legacy audios focus se, i seen a review for the signature se from brian khan, how would the pendragons compare to those?
I have a big basement, floor is carpeted and its an open space and maybe i might do cork floring down the line. I will post pics tomorrow or tonight, did you upgrade the tweeters to the silver oil tweeters?
Theres a debate in this thread below about salk speakers vs pendragons,and some other great brands one you use to own is it possible since you have them in your home to post measurements we can compare and see?????
Salk vs Tekton Pendragon
