Description :

The performance of the Tannoy Eaton sets an entirely new standard for bookshelf enclosures. Power handling capacity of 50 watts combined with high sensitivity make it superior to many larger systems costing more and requiring much higher driving power. The enclosure of the Tannoy Eaton has a ducted port and carefully adjusted internal acoustic foam damping provides a bass response out of all proportion with its size. This outstanding system enables those with only limited space to enjoy the full range natural sound which over the years has become associated with the name Tannoy.

The crossover network has some sophisticated circuits used for controlling both the level of energy from the HF unit and the degree of roll-off above 5kHz. An autotransformer is used to match the relatively high impedance of the HF voice coil (10 ohms resistive, approximately 18 ohms above 1kHz). The Tannoy Eaton crossover network divides the electrical energy from the amplifier between the High Frequency compression driver and the Low Frequency direct radiator, and makes a vital contribution to the overall performance of the system. The crossover is assembled to the very highest standards on a fibreglass printed circuit board, solid di-electric condensers are used throughout and all resistors and inductances are very generously rated. The design of the Tannoy Eaton's crossover ensures that the complete loudspeaker system has a well maintained impedance characteristic which provides the ideal load for any amplifier.

The HPD (High Performance Duals) integrated drive system consists of a direct radiator bass unit and a high frequency compression driver, both located concentrically within the same frame and magnet assembly. The numbers after HPD refer to the nominal diameter of the unit in millimeters. All units were 8 ohms and also supplied with crossover and terminal panel as kits for the professional market or home constructor. The Tannoy Eaton incorporates two controls, one enabling the treble response above 1kHz to be adjusted and the other enabling the output of the High Frequency unit to be adjusted over its entire range from 1kHz to 20kHz, compensating for room acoustics and individual preference. Sonically, the Tannoy Eaton has delightful and detailed sound, and smooth with great imaging. The tone, clarity and separation are simply superb and they provide the perfect output for a serious music lover.
