Most people will comment about the great sound of the 506 Tetra speakers.
I agree with all of that; accuracy, speed, imaging, they are all wonderful. But,
I want to comment on the look of the speaker. Objects should not have, in visual
terms, a good side and bad side. Rather objects should look good without respect
to which of its sides one views. The foregoing is particularly true of speakers
because they generally are out in a room; away from a wall to enhance the reproduction
of music. Speakers almost universally ignore this important visual consideration;
the 506 Tetra does not. The 506 Tetra looks good viewed from any direction. Hurray!
Also, audiophiles generally think speakers sound better without their grill cloths.
Trouble is the speaker usually looks the worse for the missing grill cloth; not
the 506 Tetra. Without the grill cloth the circular bas-relief created by the speaker
cones actually improves the visual attributes of the whole speaker system. First
time I have encountered such a thing. In short the 506 is a great speaker!
Thanks to Tetra and my terrific dealer:
