Default Something to compare to vintage Tannoy

Hi all.

I am considering my options building my new system.

I have always been a fan of vintage Tannoy loudspeakers. Notably Monitor Golds.

Amazing soundstage, clear treble and lowww bass that you feel.

I would buy a pair, however my budget doesn't stretch that far, n whats the fun?

Anyway, I was wondering what drivers that are reasonably priced could compare. Preferably not dual concentric... But are there such drivers??

Thanks,
Fusion

Default you did not say...

what your budget was. P-Audio or 19 Sound have coax drivers that are good not to Tannoy but good and less money. Why not used or rebuilt Tannoy? Don't forget Altec 604.

Hi Fusion, you have to be quick. Not mine. There are also some tens going.

Good luck,
Geoff.
