I like big speakers. I wonder why over a period of time speaker sizes have decreased. Logistics ? material cost cutting ? Easy manufacturing ???

Hi Hiten

The Tannoy Golds will be a little expensive. The original Tannoy Gold 15 inchers in their Lancaster cabinets sell for upwards of $ 4000 depending on condition. The Little Gold Monitor is not in the same league as the original Golds.

On the other hand you can put together a AR 3a and a Sansui AU 717 for about Rs 30000. The sound is quite glorious. Better still, if you can get a Sansui 919, nothing like it

Yes first thing I checked was on ebay. Single driver sells for about Rs, 80,000/- But as I said buying is not on my mind right now. In near future ? Honestly I don't know.
But your recommendation will surely be on my mind.
Thanks again

Hi,

The Tannoys are not single driver speakers.They are coaxial speakers.With the HF unit mounted in the center of the driver.

The Altec Duplex,Jensen G610, Goodmans and Vitavox are superb speakers.

I have the Tannoy Monitor Golds,and Altec 605's. The Goodmans I had for a short while,and have heard the Jensen and Vitavox drivers in mono systems.

The Goodmans are not as expensive as the Tannoys/altecs,etc but are very good.

Goodmans 100c 12" Triaxiom circa 1960 Live Demo - YouTube

Vitavox DU120

The unofficial Vitavox website- DU120 DU121

The one driver I have not heard in original condition (have seen/heard a few but all of them were reconed locally) but would love to own is the RCA LC1A.By all reports better than the Tannoys and Altecs.

Hi Jls001

The Tannoy Gold Monitors are vintage and different from the current lot of Tannoy drivers. The Gold Monitors have a cult following.

Re: Classic vintage HiFi speakers

Sorry for late reply.

Great stuff Rajiv. Thanks.
Jensen, Goodmans, Vitavox Never heard about this brands. Though probably not the correct way to evaluate. but assuming the most youtube videos are from the same guy and provided he has used same audio format, the RCAs sound wonderful. Just checked ebay for above drivers and speakers. They are in huge demand

@Joshua : Thanks for the links. If I am right nowadays Tannoys are made in china. So wonder how well made they are compared to Vintage speakers ?

+1 to Prem, as said before the Tannoy Gold Single Drivers are for Rs. 80,000 a piece on ebay.

Compared to Vintage amps which needs caps etc. replacement, I wonder If Vintage Speakers are any good. I can only guess that prolonged repeated use cone looses its stiffness at joints. Moving coil will easily move cone. So Is it a good thing or bad thing ?
Regards

Re: Classic vintage HiFi speakers

Yamaha NS10

A humble offering from Yamaha became Industry standard in Monitor Speakers. Article says though not having flat fq. response engineers found distortion levels pretty low. Was the paper pulp cone contributing to good performace of these speakers. Read on....
