Introduction to the Tannoy Revolution DC6T Floor-standing Speaker
Scotland, home of whisky, many successful racing drivers and Tannoy. Originally founded in 1926 England, Tannoy has been headquartered in Scotland since the 70s. Tannoy is best known for their dual concentric speakers where the tweeter is at the center of the mid-range driver. The Dual Concentric is a Trade Mark of Tannoy and is important because it maintains proper time alignment between LF and HF sources, which is something other concentrics do not achieve. A bit of trivia, Tannoy is not only the name of a speaker company but is often used to describe a generic public address system by citizens of the UK.
Tannoy released the Revolution line of speakers recently. A simplified version of the Revolution Signature series, the regular Revolution line simplified the cabinet construction, moved production to China and in the case of the towers limited the finish to espresso. These moves significantly reduced the cost and promise to deliver most of the performance the Signature line. The cost to performance potential of the DC6T led me to get a set in for review as soon as possible. Tannoy thankfully obliged.
