    Product Information

    Music is an art form that needs to be experienced in all its beauty, detail, and nuance without the colouration that can instantly detract from its purest essence. A truly great loudspeaker design enables the speaker system to remove itself from the soundscape and present the music in a manner that envelopes you in the same way as a live performance. In the 1970s TANNOY created a range of monitors that forever changed the way studio engineers and audiophiles alike chose to experience high quality audio. The TANNOY HPD Series quickly became some of the most beloved Hi-Fi loudspeakers of all time.
    More than just a homage to its predecessor, the Legacy Series ARDEN Floor-Standing 15" Hi Fi Loudspeaker further elevates the TANNOY HPD heritage of outstandingly transparent performance with the implementation of new, upscaled drivers and components – technology that was unavailable at the time. Simply put, ARDEN delivers legendary HPD performance to a new generation of music aficionados.

    Features

    Faithful to the Original
    Every design element crucial to ARDEN’s breathtaking dynamic range, clarity of sound and classic look has been faithfully preserved. Much more than just a clone of the original, this new version of the classic benefits greatly from the evolution of driver and electronic component technology. In keeping with the TANNOY mode of excellence, each ARDEN loudspeaker cabinet is completely handcrafted by Tannoy's highly skilled team at their Coatbridge, Scotland workshop.

    Studio Quality Audio in Your Home
    The Dual Concentric driver used in ARDEN provides class-leading coherence and pointsource imaging for that highly sought after truly natural sound. ARDEN’s 600-Watt 15" dual driver delivers breathtaking dynamics, powerful transient response and unparalleled realism across a wide frequency range with an almost total lack of colouration. Many of the world’s greatest hits have been recorded and mixed using TANNOY studio monitors, and listening to these speakers is like having the artist right there in your living room. Breathtaking yesterday; equally breathtaking today...

    Outstanding Components are just the Starting Point
    It takes a lot more than quality materials and hand-selected drivers to build a great loudspeaker; it takes engineering experience with a deep understanding of acoustics, dedicated craftsmanship, inspiration, and a healthy dose of imagination. For example, the crossover network employed in the ARDEN features 2 independent channels that have been skillfully designed to bring out the best of the separate LF and HF sections of the Dual Concentric driver – ensuring a truly natural sound. Since loudspeakers actually perform their work in your living space, instead of an anechoic chamber, a front mounted 2 band energy control panel allows you to selectively boost or cut the high frequencies to fit your room or personal taste. ARDEN also has heavy duty 24 carat multi-layer gold plated WBT* bi-wireable binding posts to provide optimal signal transmission and integrity, plus a fifth binding post to reduce RF interference and improved mid range clarity.

    ARDEN Enclosure
    The enclosure is made following the original ARDEN design, but benefits from new high density materials that weren’t available back in the 1970s. The resulting cabinet provides extreme rigidity to control low frequency performance, and boasts extensive bracing incorporating DMT (Differential Materials Technology) for proper driver coupling. The base of the enclosure features 8 mm coupling spikes that provide added stability, and help to dissipate unwanted energy that might otherwise detract from ARDEN’s pristine performance.

    The Legacy Lives On
    TANNOY’s long and storied legacy lives on in the new ARDEN Floor-Standing 15" Hi Fi Loudspeaker; a legacy that has endured the test of time and adapted with the evolution of technology. Whilst the bass is quite deep for the size of the ARDEN enclosure relative to the driver size, the speed and leading impulse is exciting and rewarding. Vocals are a little forward, as with many monitoring speakers, allowing the nuances of the voices to be fully appreciated. The smooth transitions to the HF device and the high sensitivity of the horn loaded dual concentric provide amazing clarity with dynamic transient response. Every ARDEN includes an ‘owner’s care package’ as well as a Birth Certificate heralding its authenticity. ARDEN simply has to be experienced...
