Tannoy has announced the latest additions to its Revolution speaker range with the five-strong XT series – all of which come fitted with the latest version of the company's Dual Concentric driver.

The new range comprises the XT 6F and XT 8F floorstanders; XT 6 bookshelf speaker; XT Mini stand-mounter; and the XT C centre channel. Medium Oak and Dark Walnut finishes are available.

"Radical acoustic engineering and new patent-pending Tannoy technologies" feature in this new speaker range, including the new Omnimagnet-powered magnets for enhanced sound quality.

Tannoy also says a "pioneering" Twin-cavity coupled reflex system and down-firing external port delivers the "most tuneful and musically coherent bass" from the Revolution speaker series yet.

It follows three years of R&D, with this system reducing cabinet distortion in an effort to deliver tighter, more controlled bass notes.

Meanwhile, the crossover's simple and straight design approach aims to provide an "ultra-clean" signal path to retain as much of the musical detail from your source as possible.

More after the break

You'll be able to see the new Reference XT series of speakers for yourself at Sound and Vision – The Bristol Show, which takes place next month at the Marriott City Centre Hotel in Bristol.

sorry to be negative but I

sorry to be negative but I have to say - based on the photos alone might be better in real life but 3 years of R&D and they eneded up with those speaker finishes?

I think they are awful - they dont look right or just me?

Not looking good

I usually find the Tannoy speakers gorgeous. But this time, based on the 3 photos, they really look bad.

I am really disappointed by the finish quality of these speakers: It looks like cheap imitation wood. And the silver circles (and silver screws !) around the woofers are so very old-fashioned.

They may look better in the flesh, eh....wood.
