Tannoy Legacy Cheviot Speakers (Pair) is the smallest floorstanding model in the Legacy Series, sitting in between the Eaton and Arden designs. Like its brothers, the model pays homage to Tannoy’s much-loved HPD models from the 1970’s which set the standard for bringing studio sound quality into the home.

The Legacy range sits just below the Prestige range, and showcases nods to the original Legacy series. The Cheviot enjoys added details such as a 12 inch driver and two band energy control with boost and accentuation control to fine-tune the speakers to their environment.

The original HPD range from 1974 immediately found a place in the hearts of Hi-Fi fans thanks to their authentic, emotive sound, and has remained there ever since. The brand new Legacy range sits just below the Prestige range, and pays homage to these iconic loudspeakers through a strikingly similar visual aesthetic. Instantly recognizable, the Legacy designs will stir nostalgia in original Tannoy fans and will attract a whole new generation of enthusiasts.

The brand new Legacy Series honors Tannoy’s rich heritage. Expertly handcrafted in Scotland, UK, you can be assured that every detail is tested and quality checked to the company’s exacting quality standards.

Visually, the design is based on the original range, with several key improvements to the terminals, trim panels, the switches and the removal of the dust cap from the transducers. Featuring large dual concentric drivers, utilizing cutting edge driver technology these loudspeakers deliver music as it’s meant to be heard.
