Default er do U mean Eyris1 vs Sensys DC1?

Eyris series use a typical mid-bass and tweeter (albeit a pretty nice tweeter..), with the option of grounding both drivers to the same ground (If I remember they have a 5 binding post connection), whilst the Sensys DC1 does not, but it does have a Dual Cocentric driver AND a super tweeter. Technically I think the DC1 will have some advantages, but it all depends on your listening experiences and equipment. Please don't buy anything without listening to it.

Now, understand (please) that this is a DIY forum, hence the title "diyAudio forums". There may be better sites available to help you out regarding new or used equipment reviews, but most here Do It Themselves. You may suffer being ignored because of this. If you have a specific question regarding something you are planning on building, or have built and need advice , I'm sure others would respond.

Nanook, the Eyris DC1 is dual concentric with super tweeter (hence the DC name).

Default dc1...

well I had gone to the first Tannoy homepage that came up on my browser, as I am not familiar with the Eyris offering a Dual Concentric version, today I did another search (different search engine, and came across the Eyris DC series).

I live in Canada, and have not seen them yet (when were they first out?)

looking at the "tech specs", Eyris enclosure uses higher grade materials (30mm front baffle and 18 mm box MDF vs 15mm particle board box), better finishes (wood veneers vs vinyl finish) compared to the Sensy. Particle board is almost never used here for enclosures, I personally have never used any for anything.

Based on the site, everything else "appears" to be essentially the same.

I've heard and seen both briefly and I agree with your observations about the materials. The Sensys has ugly vinyl finish and the enclosure is far from dead. The Eyris is slightly better in quality. I can't say much about sound quality, I didn't really pay attention.
