Tannoy Precision 8

Professional Near-Field Monitors

The Precision 8 uses a dual concentric design with a twist, using dual concentric paper cones for mid and low frequency reproduction, and the integrated dual concentric 25mm HF titanium-dome tweeter for the higher frequency reproduction, with an additional 25 HF titanium-dome "super tweeter" to take the bandwidth performance way up to over 50kHz, therefore assisting in time and phase response at the upper end of audibility. Magnetically shielded for use near CRT monitors. Packed and sold in pairs.

A factory matched pair with consecutive serial numbers, these are from a TV production facility. They are in full working order and found terrific. There is a sort of crease on one of the drivers (see picture 4), but it is only a crease, not a split. It’s purely cosmetic and has no effect on sound quality. This issue is reflected in the very low price.
