Stunning speakers for the going price at the moment. Upgraded my phono leads to Van Damme lo-cap and now drum cymbals shimmer as they should, brass instruments sound amazing with these speakers. Running with Musical Fidelity x2 P180 power amps and 3B Pre as a bi-amped configuration.
These speakers replaced a pair of Monitor Audion RS1 that sounded dull in comparison.

"Tannoy Dc2000 30 Years old."
Buy a pair of 1991 Tannoy DC2000s in 2021. A vintage with a particular charm. First of all I must say that they sound very good, warm but rich in detail, not tiring, an enveloping sound with a great soundstage and beautiful on the voices as per Tannoy tradition. To make them sound better I changed the crossover capacitors, after 30 years it seems right. I used 2.7 and 4.7 uF Mundorf MCAP EVOs. The sound gained airiness and speed. It is also better to distance them from the walls at least a meter or more, in the right conditions they are exciting. They replaced some Tannoy Sensys Dc1, with the TPA3255 class D amplifier. The Sensys are more modern, sound faster, but also more fatiguing. I currently prefer the hot DC2000s.

"Tannoy DC 2000 after 20 years"
I have bought them some 20 years ago. First they were driven by a Mission Cyrus amp, now by a Rotel RA12. Good speakers who are still doing their job after those years. Dual-concentric principle is really great. I do not play them at high volumes and they keep a strong & controlled sound image.

I listen to large orchestra music and some vocal as well. The sound stage is wide, deep and real as coherence source is Tannoy Concentric tweeter and Bass units best weapon in multi-channels playback. The image is so palpable even when you are as close as 2 -3 feet from the speakers. 50-150 WPC and 93 dB sensitivity is enough for my listening area.

I bought a pair 2nd hand for US$200. Very good sound, nice base and silky high. I love the Dual Concentric now. very musical indeed.
