The original Tannoy Reveal near field monitor has become an iconic fixture in recording studios across the world since first appeared in the mid nineties, widely recognised as the benchmark reference product that defined the category and has been the monitor of choice for thousands of amateur and professional recording, creative composition and postproduction facilities worldwide. Building upon this world-class reputation, the all new Tannoy Reveal series represents the latest evolution of Tannoy’s high resolution passive reference monitor technology.
Whether you’re looking to equip your studio with an industry standard reference monitor without the excessive price tag, or you need a passive monitor with a small footprint to integrate into your existing amplified system, the Reveal range offers the perfect solution. The new Reveal range packs performance, accuracy and value into a compact enclosure. Priced competitively with the serious home or project studio setup in mind, the all new Reveal range delivers a wide bandwidth performance that will impress even the most seasoned pro.
Ahead of the Curve
The sculpted curved edges of the new Reveal’s front baffle help to eliminate unwanted diffraction caused when sound dispersed from the sides of the cabinet is scattered back into the near field causing interference and phase distortion. By carefully smoothing off these edges, this unwanted diffraction is significantly reduced, delivering critical improvements to frequency response and crystal clear imaging, even when off-axis.
Optimised Tweeter Design
In the pursuit of achieving a wide and even nearfield monitoring ‘sweet spot’, delivering accurate and highly controlled high frequencies is critical. The new Reveals feature a brand new tweeter design comprising of soft dome HF driver coupled to an elliptical waveguide that has been optimised to provide very controlled high frequency directivity and minimise diffraction, providing a wide and consistent listening field.
Most studio monitors feature bass ports on the rear of their cabinet. This type of design leads to an inherent problem called bass-coupling whereby low frequencies are amplified when the monitors are located close to room boundaries, leading to coloured and inaccurate mix results. The new Reveals feature front-firing reflex bass ports however, to allow for ideal positioning even within small or confined studio spaces, while still providing defined bass performance.
