"Loved my Tannoy Kensington SE for over 3 years. Realized at some point that even bigger Tannoys would be more efficient & extended, and that this would be significant in my room.
Here are the new Canterbury SE in my setup.
Those are 15” dual-concentric drivers with alnico magnets (shared by the woofer & 2” compression driver tweeter); 235 Litre cabinets; yields an honest 96dB/Watt and 28Hz @-3dB.
Paired with 250+ Watts/ch tube amps, reaching concert-level at low distortion is not a problem. ”
"Looks are decidedly old-school; love it or hate it. I actually dislike most (if not all) of the aesthetic trends in modern high end speakers anyways :)"
