    How George Massenburg feels about Tannoy Monitors

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Found an interesting thread on another forum I was checking out, and thought you guys would be interesting in seeing what George Massenburg had to say about Tannoy Monitors (in general).

    My opinion is...For 20 years Tannoy has been utterly disconnected from the professional market, at least as far as those of use who have used the SBM and SGM 10 go. The arrogance of this company has been truly staggering; they have completely ignored what we've been using these speakers for, and have made no worthwhile gesture towards supporting us. I mean, to this day I use old Tannoy 10's with Mastering Lab crossovers as my reference monitors. God help me when I need a recone.

    I suppose there are some folks out there that like the new stuff. I don't. But, then again, noone asked me.

    I hope that TC Electronic brings a new vision to this myopic bunch of goofballs.

    George
    Just FYI, I don't share this opinion, as I don't have any real experience with Tannoy's. Just putting this up FWIW.

    He's not the only one with that opinion. Seems the older Tannoy stuff is highly regarded by engineers and audiophiles alike. However the newer stuff doesn't get rated near as high.

    tannoy SBM's

    I swear by these myself, I have a pair.

    For what I paid, the response and clarity of true playback is
    unmeasurable. I can play my mixes anywhere and they
    reflect ABSOLUTELY the same as they way I mixed them home

    I played back on Mackie HR824 & GENELEC

    so it doesnt matter of the MONITOR just the MAKER behind the MONITOR who listens and understands them

    *I* Share his opinion!

    Tannoys are ASS! They suck!

    I mastered about 4 projects using Tannoys before we got JBL studio monitors again.

    What utter pieces of SHITE!

    It might be like the Ferrari and Lambo thing if Mr. M made monitors.
