    Dear Tannoy,

    I am interested in your Tannoy Gold 8 Active Studio Nearfield Monitors but I note that the lower frequnct response is capped at 50Hz, what solution do you provide for the 0 - 50Hz sub-bass?

    Hi, I live in Irvine, CA. I would like to buy Revolution XT 8F-GW and take delivery before April 15, but I cannot find any reseller in the US which has it in stock.
    Can you help? Thanks,
    Noam  [email protected]

    I'd like to know if bi-wiring is recommended for the Cheviot Legacy (I own).

    • Paul53
      PedroRodrigues Hi, Paul53,please consider that most of our residential loudspeakers, and your Tannoy CHEVIOT are a good example have two sets of speaker terminals, one for the bass (LF) and one for the treble (HF).
      These are normally joined by links, and a single cable run is used to the amplifier.
      However, by removing these links, and using two sets of cable or a special bi-wire cable, the LF and HF are only connected together at the amplifier.
      Even the best cables suffer from losses due to their electrical resistance, inductance and capacitance, and so bi-wiring avoids interaction between the LF and delicate HF parts of the signal.
      This gives better clarity, detail and an improved soundstage. Your Instruction Manual will detail how to prepare your loudspeakers for bi-wiring, and your dealer will be able to advise on suitable cable choices for a given budget.
      For further information, please refer to our White Paper by following the link below:

        Paul53 Hi Mr.Rodrigues,
        • Feb 22
      • Bi- wiring or not the Cheviot Legacy
        Paul53 ... I was going to thank you, first. As a matter of fact, the theoretical benefits of bi-wiring are known. The question is if, in practice, such benefits are discernible. Moreover, there are those who believe the single-wiring sound is preferable...

        PedroRodrigues Hi Paul53 effectively I think they are specially considering that your Tannoy CHEVIOT has two terminals, one for the bass (LF) and one for the treble (HF). and in this case and I mentioned above by removing these links, and using two sets of cable or a special bi-wire cable, the LF and HF are only connected together at the amplifier.
        Even the best cables suffer from losses due to their electrical resistance, inductance and capacitance, and so bi-wiring avoids interaction between the LF and delicate HF parts of the signal.

    Hey there!

     

    I am about to buy a second hand dc8ti.

     

    Just wanted to know the release date of the speaker so i know if its too old.

    Also want to know if these speakers come with a base (plynth or somewhat)! The owner says it didnt come with a base but all the pictures i see, it has a base.

    Also is it available for purchase as a spare part (the base), and what is the cost?

      ChrisEdwards1 Hi ChrisFromGrece, you can find out the manufacture date of a unit by the serial number. The below article will guide you in how to find this out:

      https://community.musictribe.com/pages/kba?articleId=8bc4966a-6c30-ea11-a812-000d3a081b66&brand=Tannoy

      With regards to the plinth, it may be worth double-checking the model of the speaker as the DC8Ti should as you have seen in photos come with one, however, the DC8T would not. This information again should be shown on the serial number label

        ChrisFromGreece Thanks for the reply. I can’t tell which model it is (dc8ti or dc8T). Is there any chance you can tell, if I send you some pics??
        • Jan 28
      • Definition DC8ti
        ChrisEdwards1 Hi ChrisFromGrece, of course if you can supply pictures of the unit and serial number we will be able to confirm from the product code within the serial number.

    Hi

    I am the owner of a Tannoy arena highline system and the subwoower ts500 is making a very loud chirping noise.

    Is there any recommendation how to deal with this problem?

    Best regards

      Nigel67 Hi Pribalta. This could be a component in the power supply that is starting to fail. Its very difficult to give a definitive answer without us taking a look at it. I would advise that you send it in to us for repair by clicking on the support tab at the top of the page and in the new window that opens, scroll down to the service tab and submit a ticket.

      • Chirping sound in subwoofer
        Pribalta Thanks Nigel. The issue happens when the device is connected, if the input cable is removed the sound disappears. The device was bought 5 years ago so unfortunately the warranty has expired. Nevertheless I appreciate you taking time to look into this. I will first reach out to a local electronics store and see what can be done.

      • Chirping sound in subwoofer
        Nigel67 Have you confirmed that the problem is not the device that is feeding the sub? Do you have anything else that you can plug into the sub to see if the noise re-appears or not. I would also try a different cable, although if a ground was broken the noise wouldn't sound like the noise you are hearing. i would definitely try another source and cable before taking the sub apart.

    Hi all. Does anybody know what is the definition of a Tannoy Grade B speaker ? BW Adam 

    0 21
    • AdamE007
      ChrisEdwards1 Hi AdamE007, the definition of this will vary between distributors/resellers so it is best to fully check this with the place that is selling them, however, in most cases B grade will refer to something that has been returned within the first 30 days of the sale and can no longer be sold as A stock. This can sometimes include Ex-Demo but in most cases this will be listed differently. The product could also show slight signs of cosmetic issues.

      I would highly recommend checking this with the place they are being listed though as stated their definition may be slighlty different.

        AdamE007 Thanks Chris. Interesting ! Nimtronics have 2x pairs of grade B unopened GR Canterbury’s for sale. In the 1st instance, I have asked for photos, serial numbers, proof of purchase and a QC certificate ... can you think of anything else ? BW Adam

        ChrisEdwards1 Hi AdamE007, looks like you have all basis covered if i am honest. If they can provide any further general history this could be good but i think from the information you have requested it should give you enough background.

        KyleJohnson But for a Sub for the GR series, I'd recommend the Tannoy Definition Subwoofer.

    Hello, I am very interested in the Tannoy Xt8f's but would like to know if you are now providing the "bung" inserts for the bass ports? If not, do you have a recommendation? My room is 16x18x8 Ft and I am concerned there will be too much bass. Thanks

      ChrisEdwards1 Hi Michael, the Revolution XT6F and XT8F do not come supplied with port bungs, however, if you require them any generic Third-party ones that can be purchased online or via your local HiFi dealer would be suitable. The diameter of the bass reflex port on the XT8F is 7.5cm and for the XT6F it is 5.5cm.

    I have the Turnberry GR speakers with a Primalina EVO 400 preamp and two EVO 400 power amps plus two REL S/5 SHO subs. I don't have a good place to compare the Kensington to my current speakers. I am very pleased to the Turnberry sound but I would like to evolve up the Tannoy ladder of performance. What is the main upgrade for the Kensington vs the Turnberry?

      ChrisEdwards1 Hi Skip, I hope you are well. The main noticeable difference between these models can be found within their power handling and frequency response, the following link will provide downloads for both of the manuals for each model. The specifications for both models can be found on page 46 https://we.tl/t-T0ZXtLWW2d. It is also highly recommended that you consult with your local dealer about a possible demo, a list of our international resellers can be found by the following link -https://www.tannoy.com/buy.html.
