Ready for Dead party, 2006
What brand are they, details please, including yer power amp :) Do ya ever listen to the GD on that system? (Hehe)
Those are Tannoy M1000 monitors with 15 inch dual concentric drivers, made in the UK around 1983. The oiled American walnut cabinets weigh 132lbs each. Over 40" tall and 17 deep. I acquired them about three years ago from the original owner after five years of searching. They're rare and hard to come by. I am the original owner of a smaller version called the SRM12B, a 12 inch driver in a smaller box which I bought from Leo's Pro Audio in Berkeley in 1985. That's when I became a devoté of Tannoys.
I currently have them connected to a modern surround sound receiver from Pioneer. The other speakers in the system are new model Tannoys. I have some vintage amps that I use on the 12s and occasionally on the Ms for stereo only, Technics DC Class A amps 300w each. I posted a couple more photos for your reference.
I'm a big fan of JBLs, too. My mother owns a pair purchased in 1965 with the LE14 driver and lens horn tweeter. They're pristine and lightly used. I'm going to make certain those stay in the family.
is half as pretty as the wood on the cabinets, it must be pretty great.
A much nicer set up than my little boom box!
