Can anyone reassure me that if I set out on an Ekta Mk11 build, there's a good chance that they will please me as much as, if not more than, my 30 yr old Epos es 22s? Are they an appropriate choice for my current amplification? i note that the DTQWTs can be built for a similar cost, but maybe they're less of a match to my system.

I built the Illumina 66 floorstanders 2 years ago and they are great exceptional detail and very good bass. The great thing with TG designs is that you can change the hf resistors to suit your taste as he gives alternative values.
Just look at all the builder responses to his designs to see how much people like the designs.
One other thing is that if you pay the equivalent ready built speakers would cost about 5 times more. So the Illumina 66 would be roughly equivalent to a 9000 speaker in my case.

The Illuminator Ekta 18WU and 12MU drivers are a step up in terms of dynamics and transparency over the Mk I Revelator drivers. However, he uses a retro 91300 ferrofluid tweeter. I'm no fan of ferrofluid tweeters as I've had a pair dry out and die over time. Good luck finding substitute once Scan-Speak discontinues the line. The 91300 tweeter doesn't even belong to the Illuminator family.
