NAMM 2014: Tannoy Announces New Range of Active Reveal Monitors
Three new models offer a widened sweet spot 23/01/14
Tannoy has announced its new Reveal 402, 502 and 802 monitors. They tell us that this completely new line of active studio monitors is expertly voiced to bring a massive sweet spot to personal studios everywhere. They say that, now musicians can move around their workspace and share their mix with others – while maintaining a precision listening experience. Here's the full details in Tannoy's own words...
The new range consists of an ultra-compact 4-inch, a versatile 5-inch and an extremely powerful 8-inch model all of which offer several input options including Tannoy's AUX Link using the included 15' (5m) mini jack cable.
Each Reveal in this new range has been custom tweaked by Tannoy's in-house speaker legend, Dr. Paul Mills. He has produced absolutely impeccable timing in the crossover filters. This is the key behind the widened sweet spot, making it possible to maintain stereo imaging of the mix for musicians who are moving around in the studio or inviting others to sit in during mixing sessions.
Peter Jeppesen, Product Manager for Tannoy Studio told us, "We're extremely proud to be able to bring the legendary Tannoy sound to personal studios everywhere. With the versatility of the new range and the added AUX LINK feature, there's a Reveal for you no matter the size of your studio."
