    Tannoy Arden MkII

    I bumped into a pair of Tannoy Arden MkII (15" DC386 drivers 8ohms impedence) on Yahoo Auction.


    The edges of the Ardens have been refoamed with non-original material by the seller, as he mentions.


    Would be grateful if someone could tell me how Arden sound and if they suit me. I listen to female vocals, pop music, orchestra most of the time. How much are they worth these days, given their age? I am also open to other Tannoy's in the same price range such as Stirling, Greenwich, etc so please recommend another model if Arden doesn't suit me.


    Thanks!


    Chris

    Hi Chris, As per Tannoy Arden. If you can find the MK I with HD385A would be better speakers with Alnico driver.

    They are great speakers for the money and excel on Jazz , vocal and classical music.
