    tannoy eaton legacy

    review here of these dimnutive speakers that go exceedingly low and have such incredible imaging

    The meaty looking Eaton speaker is a prime example of what Tannoy is all about. More so, in fact, because the Eaton has direct links to the original, 70s-era HPD (High Performance Duel) Series.

    Now under new ownership, Tannoy has looked again at the Eaton design. The new Eaton incorporates changes, as you might expect. The driver and electronic component technology, for example. Each Eaton loudspeaker cabinet is hand made at the Coatbridge, Scotland workshop from 19mm MDF with plywood internal bracing plus damping. There are 12mm rubber pads on the base and twin, front-firing ports, on the upper front fascia which will aid room positioning.
    If you check out the images here, you’ll see how the 10” (254mm), paper Dual Concentric Driver (with no dust cap) dominates the design, which includes two independent channels to separate the low frequency and high frequency sections of the driver. The high end is handled by a a 33mm aluminium/magnesium alloy domed tweeter with a tulip wave guide.
    A front mounted 2-band “energy control panel” allows you to boost or cut the lows and/or highs to suit your taste. This beautifully designed area is almost Victorian in its finish.
    What the Eatons did was to pick up the lead singer, Mark E. Smith, and drag him forward into new space. Then they placed air and space around him. I felt that I could have risen from my chair and walked around him. That was how crafted the image was. Not so much 3D as hologrammatic!

    Great review. Makes me wonder how the Legacy models compare with the Prestige GR models. I had some pre GR Kensington’s in the house some time ago that did some amazingly good things but also did something weird to percussion instruments like bongos. They seemed to be more forcefully projected through the Kensington’s than other speakers I had owned. These do look interesting though.
