Tannoy Eaton Legacy standmount speakers

Postby hifinutt » Sat Dec 29, 2018 6:04 pm

Had a friend around today and we just listened again to the Eaton legacy . these are a modest standmount that tannoy have ressurected from past . they have real grunt and image so beautifully . all but one of the folks who have been here have loved them and they are highly recommended if you want a good standmount with zero boom issue that can be relatively inconspicuous

yes , i use them with the grills and they are fine , very good waf , especially as they are substantially smaller than many other speakers i have in there . you could listen to them for hours and unlike many other speakers they are very balanced in sound

hifinut, you have harbeth, and the impulses, do you need a third set of speakers, is one of the others going to be moved on?

I think his signature can't keep up with the changes! Use it for guidance only. ;D

ah now , got 3 systems on the go . the impulse taus are just AWESOME with some firebottle mono`s and are my main listening . they have huge sense of space

the Tannoy eatons are in the lounge and are not conspicuous like so many predecessors eg martin logan summit x , focal diablo etc . they are a delightful speaker and an ex CU member was here recntly enjoying them greatly

The harbeth p3esr are in a third system with a rotel amp and mainly for listening over meals etc

truly a speaker nutcase i am afraid !!!! :D :D
