Tannoy Yorkminster SE

Description
 

The Tannoy Yorkminster SE features a 12-inch Dual Concentric™ driver with an AlNiCo magnet system and the Tannoy PepperPost WaveGuide™, mounted in a 1080 mm tall, 620 mm wide solidly braced cabinet constructed of lacquered teak veneer with solid teak trim detail. Front panel crossover controls allow the unit to be fine-tuned for musical preferences and listening environment.

Forget hi-fi. Tannoy Prestige speakers are designed and built like fine musical instruments, producing startlingly immediate, dynamic, and utterly captivating sound, rich in tone, as close to a live performance as anything in audio.  No matter what your musical tastes, whether jazz, reggae, electronic, classical, hard rock, or whatever, the Tannoy Dual Concentric design is a magical antidote to clinical high-end loudspeaker alternatives.

The Yorkminster works magnificently in spaces ranging in size from a large sitting room to substantial halls, and in all interior decors, from traditional to contemporary. It can be powered by low-powered valve amps, including single-ended triodes, or high-powered solid-state monoblocs, with both bi-wiring and bi-amping options.

Price shown for a pair of speakers.

What the reviews said
"Let's get straight to the biggest difference: bass performance. It isn't that you get bigger bass than a good, conventional floorstander, it's the quality of it that is so striking. In the large room, 28 ft square, they delivered a dry punch that literally hit my stomach and physically shook the sofa. As well as hearing bass, I felt pressure waves and their sense of grip and control was amazing, quite beyond the norm.... Few loudspeakers can match the Yorkminsters. They exist in a world of their own." (April 2006)
"Delicious is the adjective that most readily sprang to mind when these speakers were connected onto the end of a Naim NAC552/NAP500 amp rig. Delectable, delightful and delicate would serve equally well to describe a midband in particular that's wonderful natural and communicative.... It's not so much that they play loudly—which they certainly will, since the available headroom is massive—it's more that these speakers are absolutely magical when playing really quietly."
