    Default tannoy eatons

    so many years ago in west norwood we had tannoy speakers instead of church bells as they were based there in south london i think

    never had a pair of tannoy in my system but by chance i have some eatons . now also had some frugalhorns for past few weeks which quite frankly have been entrancing . i fact they rather spoilt the arrival of some speakers i had ordered because they were so different [harbs shl5plus]


    so these are the NEW legacy range from tannoy and retail at 4.5k i think .

    they go deeeeeeeep man for such a little speaker , enough to be worried about the neighbour when playing organ music . so will be listening over next few days and considering i normally walk out of most tannoy rooms as they are too forward for me these classic series are most interesting

    They look in very nice condition.

    Be interesting to hear how you get on with them.

    I have a pair of Devon's, but usually use Rogers LS3/6 (with Export Monitor bass units), in preference.

    Not surprising I guess. They look like the new 'Legacy' Eatons to me. The design is not related to the seventies HPD Eatons.

    I was fooled! the grille cloth and badges look similar to my 70's Devons. I should have noticed the Bi Wire facility!

    If the grille was off in the photo, no doubt you'd see a 'tulip waveguide' tweeter staring at you from the centre of the driver.

    To earth the metalwork of the driver I expect. The manual should tell you, if you have it. I suspect it is unlikely that the earth needs to be used.

    ah i don`t have it.

    not to worry . using them with a 20 year old philipps amp and sound very balanced indeed. not even a twinge of brightness . playing an old recording of incantations [mike oldfield] which can sound sharp on some systems but its absolutely fine

    later on in week will put them with the thrax valve integrated

    Ha I was confused for a second as well as they looked a bit like my Eatons and I thought someone had done some cosmetic improvement. Then saw the biwire links.

    It would be interesting to hear the old and new side by side. Pity you are not around the corner Phil so we could try.
