Tekton Design makes high sensitivity speakers.
Thats no longer the case. I encourage you to look at Amir's amplifier index and you will see some class D amps in the top quartile for performance. Also there are amp vendors on this site selling compelling class D amplifiers at competitive prices with class AB in terms of quality with more power.
Patently untrue. Class D is just fine, if you get a half decent amp. Class A is pretty trash for power amp purposes because of the horrid efficiency (and frankly pretty awful distortion characteristics because of the lack of push-pull).
A Class A amplifier doesn't have to be single ended, it can, and most are, push pull. The main issue, apart from shocking inefficiency, is that a true Class A amplifier is very much current limited, and if required to provide high current either goes into Class AB, in which case it's no longer a Class A amplifier, or it can't provide the extra current so distorts horribly.Patently untrue.

???High sensitivity speakers play well through low wattage amplifiers . And the low wattage amplifier costs much lesser .
I started comparing spec vs measuring sensitivity due to an argument about a Tekton speaker. I know the tweeter model they use, and their spec is much higher than the tweeter’s data sheet, so that high just isn’t possible. And as seen in the Stereophile review(s), they overstate sensitivity.Tekton Design makes high sensitivity speakers.
