In its 90-year history, one of Tannoy's biggest succeses was its HPD loudspeaker series from the seventies. and now the hugely popular speaker series is set to return with every element crucial to its breathtaking dynamic range, clarity of sound and classic look preserved, while refinements that reflect only true audio progress have carefully been added.
Hand crafted in Coatbridge, Scotland, every speaker in the new Legacy series will include an ‘owner’s care package’ as well as a certificate of authenticity, signed by the experts that made them. The new speakers include the floorstanding Legacy Arden and Legacy Cheviot alongside the standmount Legacy Eaton.

Also a floorstander, the Legacy Cheviot boasts a 12in driver with 500W power handling along with the same Daul Concentric driver. It adds a fifth binding post to the bi-wreable ones to provide grounding in an effort to reduce radio frequency interference and improve midrange clarity.
