Tannoy Revolution DC6/DC6T : The Evolution

Tannoy — 10 Nov 2013

Revolution: Tannoy’s new wave in elegant, dynamic and musically accomplished loudspeakers has been expanded to incorporate Tannoy’s 6inch (150mm) Dual Concentric drivers.

Drawing on the strengths and accolades lavished on the multi-award winning Revolution Signature DC6 and DC6T models, the new Revolution DC6 stand mount and revolution DC6T tower models bring much of the Signature’s acoustic sophistication and musical integrity to a more affordable price point.

The new revolution models unite Tannoy’s highly regarded 6inch (150mm) Dual Concentric™ driver technology with a larger ultra-rigid trapezoidal cabinet. The tall, relatively slim profile and non-parallel sides offer a distinctive look while reducing internal resonances and acoustic reflections. Each cabinet is offered in Light Oak or darker Espresso real wood veneers, hand finished to the same exacting standards expected of bespoke cabinetry. Magnetic grille mounts are installed below the veneer to ensure a graceful and uncluttered appearance on the front baffle and the stylish brushed metal trims are mounted with concealed fixings to further enhance the smooth appearance. Revolution’s compact footprint is ideal for modern homes where style is paramount and space is at a premium.

The Revolution DC6T is a floor standing design that marries the 6in (150mm) Dual with a 6in (150mm) auxiliary bass driver for additional power and attack. Tall, slim and elegant, the DC6T comes supplied with an optional floor plinth to increased stability, ideal for homes with children or pets. The stand-mound Revolution DC6 offers the same pure point-source articulation of the smaller Revolution DC4 model, while its more substantial driver motor and greater bass/mid cone surface area afford deeper bass and increased dynamic range.

Tannoy’s Dual Concentric drivers have long been respected for their musical coherence and this new high-power, wide-bandwidth 6in (150mm) version builds on the strength of this proprietary technology. The unit places a WideBandtitanium domed tweeter with neodymium magnet system at heart of a multi-fibre paper-pulp bass driver for true exceptional integrity and unmatched tonal accuracy. Rigid die-cast driver chassis and multi-point fixings further enhance Revolution’s spacious and dynamic sound.

Providing perfect integration of the driver elements, the carefully designed crossover network uses low loss, laminated core inductors and audiophile-grade polypropylene capacitors throughout. In addition to the exclusive use of silver-plated oxygen free copper internal wiring, careful consideration has been given to the precise layout of the crossover to minimise inter-component coupling and signal pathway losses. This no compromise approach ensures seamless integration of the HF and LF components, resulting in the pin-sharp imaging and communicative musical experience for which loudspeakers featuring Tannoy’s Dual Concentric™ drivers are famed.

Revolution DC6 and DC6T offer a unique blend of graceful style and stunning acoustics designed to appeal to the whole family. Dramatic in sonic scale yet subtle in its integration with contemporary decor, the new Revolution models have been designed to enhance the listener’s living environment both visually and acoustically. The new Revolution DC6 and DC6T models join the compact stand-mount Revolution DC4 and chic DC4T floor standing models as stereo pairs for music fans. The voice-matched Revolution DC4 LCR centre-channel offers a simple add-on path to room-filling surround sound.

Available in Light Oak and Espresso real wood veneer
