CONCLUSION

Tannoys are known as studio monitors, as well as domestic loudspeakers and they have an enviable reputation in both. What I enjoyed so much in these updated DC8Ts did relate more to Rock than classical, I must admit. Yet I find them very enjoyable with Classical too, and effective even with difficult instruments such as violin and piano. Rafael’s objection is of compressed perspectives and here I suspect there is a trade off between the projective nature of the horn that suits Rock more than orchestral work. As £4000 loudspeakers go I find the DC8Ts smooth, accurate, great fun and revealing too. This is a wide range of strengths, wider than that of most rivals,then this is the one. It is a high quality Tannoy, it is unerringly accurate and it is a great listen.

 

 

verdict four globes

 

 

 

Refined and punchy loudspeaker that is chocolate smooth, yet excitingly projective. Big bass too.
