Hi guys,
Long time without post. I still have my old speakers...Paradigm Studio 100 V2, B&W DM 602 S2 and Monitor Audio Silver S2. Anyway, I have always wanted to own a pair of dual concentric tannoy speakers. Some days ago, I listened to a pair of 12" monitor gold from 1971, Waoooo!!!!!!. Tannoy knows how to build an speaker.. I believe any Tannoy driver from 1965 to 1980 sound better than what we have today. I don't know if Tannoy still keep the same quality than before, but anyway, I am inspired to get some pair. Those dual concentric drivers sound better than many speakers. I would like to compare a pair of Tannoy 8" monitors with my B&W 602, I believe the Tannoy gonna be better. I love some vintages, specially, Sansui amplifiers and Tannoy speakers.

One of the local shops deals Tannoy and yes, they still make excellent speakers. Of course, you must pay for this excellence. They have a couple of bookshelf models that really kill.
