10edt, like 5edt, has very accurate 5-limit harmony for such a small number of steps per tritave. 10edt introduces some new harmonic properties though; notably the 571 cent tritone which can function as 7/5. It also splits the major third in half, categorizing this tuning as a fringe variety of "meantone" temperament.
