FOR SALE: Tannoy AMS-8
8" powered reference monitors. Flat clear sound. Time aligned high frequency driver.
8-inch dual-concentric low-frequency driver concentrically mounted to a 1-inch HF compression driver with a damped tulip-shaped waveguide. The drive unit is housed in a charcoal-grey, slat-side inlay, inert DMT (Differential Material Technology), front-ported cabinet. The twin laminated, space-frame design of the cabinet is heavily braced and decoupled to prevent signal coloration. All contoured cabinet edges feature isolation pads for added durability. The quoted frequency response is 38 to 25k Hz, ±2.5 dB.
The bi-amped MOSFET power modules deliver 140 watts continuous to each of the HF and LF sections. The amp's construction techniques and components are reminiscent of high-end audiophile amps. Heat is dissipated via the massive double-anodized, aluminum-finned back plate. A blue LED on each cabinet's front panel indicates power on.
The layout on the back of the amplifier plate is well marked and easily followed, and the switches allow for easy adjustment access. Operating voltage is switchable between 100 and 120V and 200 to 240V.
The active circuitry in the crossovers utilizes high-grade, 1% precision-matched components yielding tolerances within 0.25 dB throughout each passband. The sophisticated active crossover shaping and design produces not only a tight amplitude response, but also linear phase response.
Highly prized and sought after, Tannoy made a 10 and 12 inch version also. Active Monitor Series using Meridian amps sound fantastic and are supported by Tannoy though they are somewhat rare, they were designed to be used as near/mid field monitors. They sound as you would expect from high end units, on this pair the small rubber surrounds are a little frayed here and there but it`s purely cosmetic and only visible with close inspection. They were never intended to have grills, can ship UK but prefer buyer collects if possible, thanks.
Active studio monitors with Meridian amps, these units are still supported by Tannoy though they are quite rare. They are designed as studio reference monitors and extremely honest. There are a 10 and 12 inch version as well but these are fine for small/medium sized rooms, they are designed for near field and mid field use. The rubber lining is a bit frayed in places but this is purely a cosmetic thing and only visible on close inspection. The drivers and amps are perfect, please note there are no grills intended for these units, thanks.
These come with telescopic adjustable height stands, perfect for these monitors.
