Its really a shame that these Canadian built speakers don't have more exposure in the marketplace, especially here is the US. They are phenomenal!
Go to the Tetra Speakers web site and just look at the number of well known musicians that are Tetra owners. Even Keith Richards has/had a pair. (I don't know and probably he doesn't know either!).
The great Herbie Hancock had a pair of these very model 506's until he upgraded to the 506 replacement aptly titled 606 and now priced over $30,000 USD.
There is a positive feedback issue where the reviewer actually spent some time (6 months+) with these and he can really articulate what makes these guys so special, its not about measurements, rather, its about hearing. They are worth an audition for sure.
Never thought I would sell these as this, along with the Audio Note gear (Listed separately) was my dream retirement system.
These are adult owned in a no pet non smoking home. I have listed them as 8+/10 to point out a few little things than you can only see from about 12" away. The price more than reflects this I think.
Some specs for those that need them:
- Freq response = 29-20,000Hz
- Sensitivity = 91dB (2.83Vrms @ 1m)
- Impedance is 8ohms nominal but doesn't dip below 7ohms.
- Power handling = 500 watts. Note: I drove them with 10 wpc to crazy levels
- Weight = 95lbs. They are substantial
- Dimensions = 43" H x 19" W x 19.5" D
The unique tetrahedron shaped upper cabinet is an equilateral pyramid and the imaging of these speakers is phenomenal!
I have the factory plywood shipping crates but if you are within 2-3 hours of Greenville, SC come take a listen and save the shipping costs.
SHIPPING WILL HAVE TO BE BY PALLET/FREIGHT.
