The flagship of the Definition range, the Definition DC10A is a loudspeaker of pure refinement. It embodies Tannoy’s core tenets of musical reproduction: A single point source Alnico Dual Concentric™ driver, straight path fully Deep Cryogenically Treated crossover and Tannoy’s signature birch-ply cabinet construction. The DC10A delivers the engaging and articulate sound of Tannoy’s classic Prestige models with the luxurious contemporary style of the Definition series. The Definition DC10A is a thoroughly modern loudspeaker, hand built and rich with traditional values.
The DC10A’s newly developed 10inch Dual Concentric™ driver is powered by Alcomax 3 Alnico motors to deliver a sweet, natural and inherently coherent sound. Famed for delivering a sweet, natural and inherently coherent sound, Alnico powered drivers have long been the preferred choice of discerning musicians. From jazz and blues to folk and rock music, the Alnico sound is consistently rich and engaging, delivering realism rarely achieved by ferrite ceramic drivers. A new multi-fibre cone material has been developed specifically for the DC10A to realise the very best from the Alnico magnet system and the HF driver is fitted with the latest iteration of Tannoy’s famous Pepperpot WaveGuide™.
The large DC10A birch-ply cabinet features complex parabolic curves to minimise acoustic resonances and internal reflections, and features a substantial mass loading Cavity to fine tune bass response to room dynamics. The cabinet’s port-loading is tuned to deliver the most natural and accurate LF response and a heavyweight metal plinth assembly with convenient top-adjustable spikes serves to stabilise the loudspeaker system.
Finished with the contemporary flair and immaculate detailing applied across the Definition range, the DC10A is visually stunning and musically breath-taking. It is available in high gloss real wood veneers of cherry and dark walnut or piano black gloss, each with complementary aluminium trim.
