Up for sale is a pair of Tannoy Revolution Signature DC6 bookshelf speakers in Espresso color. These speakers use dual-concentric drivers to great effect. They have 88db sensitivity. Condition is 9/10. They come with magnetic grills, manual and original box. The speakers have been in a smoke-free environment. What-HiFi and TechRadar both gave these speakers 5/5 in their professional reviews.
These speakers sold new for $1800 in North America. Asking $849.99 + actual shipping costs (to Toronto, ON using regular mail would be $32.00). I accept Paypal as payment and am willing to ship within North America. Speakers will ship in their original box and grills.

More the on the technology employed in these speakers:
Tannoy Dual Concentric™ drivers have been incorporated into the Revolution Signature loudspeakers. Intensive researchand development has produced an all-new version of this proven technology that builds upon the legendary performance of this exclusive Tannoy driver design. The time coherent, point source and constant directivity nature of the dispersion characteristics inherent in the Dual makes it an accepted industry standard in studio monitoring. By exceeding the rigorous demands of the recording and mastering
environment Tannoy can ensure that playback performance in the home for multi channel home cinema, is strictly controlled to accurately reflect the sound engineers artistry. In nature all sounds emanate from a single point in space. The high frequency unit of the Dual, centrally mounted in the throat of the main mid/bass driver, is so positioned as to acoustically replicate this single point source; delivering an incredibly natural sound with a very wide imaging ʻsweet spotʼ that creates an expansive soundstage with remarkably focused placement of images.
Tannoy has incorporated its own WideBand™ technology into the design of these drivers. Not only does this exceptional in-house technology resolve fine detail of high frequency information but it also effectively enhances the listening experience throughout the whole frequency range. The WideBand™ high frequency system creates an increased immediacy, airiness and impact, making music and movie sound more natural and true to life. Sounds contain transient information and rich harmonics beyond the range of human hearing for pure tones. Even low frequencies have leading edge transients reaching 30kHz. Tannoy WideBand™ high frequency units will accurately reproduce the leading edge of individual sounds allowing the listener to experience the entire bandwidth, by extending the frequency response well beyond that of conventional loudspeakers. In addition, the extension of the frequency response, by fully two octaves, corrects time and phase response within the bandwidth of normal human hearing. Taking these acoustical phase anomalies beyond the audible range adds realism to the soundstage through improvements in imaging and the placement of sounds.
