What is stereo?




There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakers are used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.

Tannoy Oxford

 Tannoy's engineers were briefed to produce a range of loudspeakers - of modest dimension and price - which would retain that characteristic, and relese in your home that special magic  the musicans created. The result of their research and development are now available to you in the Stradford, Cambridge and Oxford loudspeakers.

Like all Tannoy Loudspeakers, these three models are highly efficient. This means that, in comparasion with many other loudspeakers, your amplifier will not have to be driven so hard to produce a realistic listening sound level, with less chance of producing a distorted signal. Your ears will tell you the difference, with the Tannoys producing a clean, truthful sound, which gives remarkable freedon from listening fatigue. Unlike some speakers with unrealistic "over Impressive" performance, you will not grow tired of our sound, and will appreciate your investment in Tannoy for many years.
 Tannoy Oxford
The Oxford uses the same HF compression driver, but matched to a 10" version of our polyolefin cone bass driver. This combination, mounted in a larger cabinet made from heavier weight material and walnut finish, offers the most extended frequency response, and highest peak power handling capacity of this range.
The high efficiency of the Oxford, as with all Tannoy Loudspeakers, enables you to reproduce in your home realistic sound levels from even modestly powered systems. Used in conjunction with quality electronics the lifelike detail and articulation of the Oxford is really quite outstanding. It is no wonder that the Oxford has been used professionally in monitoring the sound quality of live performance location recording.
 How do we produce such good sounds? Well, to start with we are manufactures of complete loudspeakers systems. The components of the Stradford, Cambridge and Oxford are designed and manufactured in our own factory. This enables us to provide unique solutions to acoustic problems that some other manufactures do not even recognise.
Take our tweeter for instance.
Conventional cone or dome tweeters will not easily accept high level music transients efficiently and without distortion. Our research programme produced the tannoy horn loaded compression driver. This remarkable device uses a special magnetic cooling fluid which enables it to handle far more power, and convert significantly more of that power into clean sound. The controlled sound dispersion also provides consistent stereo imager, which is less affected by the acoustic characteristics of your listening room than many conventional HF units.
 We certainly did not neglect the low frequency response of the Stradford, Cambridge and Oxford. Two bass/mid-range drivers were developed, both using a cone made by Tannoy from a polyolefin co-polymer - which provides a smoother, more extended frequency response - mounted within a rigid pressure formed metal frame. Our heavyweight magnet assembly provides high power handling with the legendary Tannoy efficiency.

Both drivers are mated to a crossover network carefully designed to provide optimum performance with low distortion. We ensure reliable performance by using only high quality components.

Last, but by no means least, we designed a damped, very rigid ducted port cabinet for each model, to give really solid bass response. Each cabinet has a Walnut finish -  and the detachable acoustic foam grille of each model carries the famous gold badge of Tannoy - The Name for Loudspeakers.
