Here's the Tannoy press release in its entirety:
The iconic Reveal studio monitor is back and better than ever â€“ Tannoy unveil two new models in a range that doesn't compromise on sound quality...
Building on an already world-class reputation, the all-new Tannoy Reveal series represents the latest evolution of Tannoy's monitor technology. The original Tannoy Reveal monitor blazed a trail for affordable, high-quality monitoring that saw it installed into thousands of music making set-ups across the globe.
Tannoy is building on this success with the announcement of an all-new Reveal range that represents the latest evolution of their active reference monitoring technology. The new Reveals have been custom designed and built from the ground up to ensure superb no-compromise monitoring.
The new range features two new monitors: the 501a and 601a*.(*601a also available as a 601p passive monitor â€“ specifications below.)
Whether you're building a studio on a budget or need an active monitor with a small footprint, the Reveal 501a and 601a offer the perfect solution. Built and finished to superior standards, the Reveals pack performance, accuracy and value into those sturdy, compact enclosures. Priced competitively with entry-level and compact recording setups in mind, the all-new Reveals deliver wide bandwidth performance that will impress even the most seasoned professionals.
The 501a is an active monitor that offers the ideal monitoring solution for producers on a budget who refuse to compromise on sound quality. A perfectly matched 60W integrated amplifier ensures maximum efficiency from the 5" LF/MF driver and 1" soft dome tweeter, while the 501a's response has been optimised for nearfield operation.
The 601a, meanwhile, delivers pristine sound through its larger 6.5" LF/MF driver and 1" soft dome tweeter. With a total power output of 90W, this compact speaker with extended lower frequency response is the ideal solution for home, project and pro studio set-ups alike.
