Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

Tannoy Prestige

Super-fast, like horns, but without the blare-y quality horns exhibit in some rooms. Always musical, never etched. Fast bass down to their limits, which may not be enough for you - the Stirling GR's are good to the low 40's I'd guess, and the bigger models go somewhat lower. They are ported, so bass response falls off a cliff at the limit. They do super-quiet about as good as the Quad 57's, but are very dynamic and can blow you out of the room if you're in the mood. If you have a fast powered sub that can cross over at 12 dB/octave, you can get the bottom end back nicely. Imaging, btw, is beyond anything I've every heard. I've had these for about five months now, and they continue to astonish.

After some back and forth, Uli Behringer, who bought the company, has apparently committed to resume producing them in Scotland. It may take a while before U.S. dealers have any stock. (If you're in the U.K./Euro, it should be easy.)

Pic is the temp setup while I renovate an old house - the music room is next.
