    I think a lot of the Tannoys are well overpriced for their SQ

    All the DC ones I've heard sound massively bright and coloured to me and the older they are the worse they are.

    Apparently they appeal to some

    I don't imagine that a speaker from 1958 is going to sound fantastic - but I presume that the person who paid nearly 5000GBP for it was interested in more than the SQ.

    Yep. My Subaru Forester is so much better on almost every dimension than a 1956 Porche 356 or a 1967 VW Microbus. But I'd pay a LOT more for a pristine 56 Porche or VW Microbus.

    The Japanese love them for their tonal quality as they love their horns.

    Theres a couple of pairs of very old Tannoy DC's on ebay both many úK

    Firewood to me even if they had a good tonal quality but....

    There's an exception to every rule. Quad ESL57
    Until recently: Transporter -> ATC SCM100A, now sold :-(
    House move forced change to: piCorePlayer(RPi2/HiFiBerry DIGI2 Pro/HiFiBerry DSP) -> Meridian 218 -> Meridian M6
