Efficient, dynamic, believable sound, always pleasant to listen to.
Not many, maybe plain black looks??
I have owned a pair of DC2000's for around 13 years. I chose them after listening to just about everything, at the time, between £200=, and £800=. These were going for around £300= at the time and I was lucky to get a discount.
I have played around with sound recording and mixing and find these play live recorded sound in a very natural way. They sound great at low and high levels. They may not be the best in the world, but I have never felt the need to change them. They are at home with all types of music. I know some huge speakers go lower - but these do a reasoable job in the bass. Some speakers are smoother but these make a beleivable sound - not artificial in any way.
Other speakers I have owned:- Rogers LS3/5A; Musical Fidelity MC2, Celestion Ditton 22; Celestion UL6; Celestion Ditton 15. - to mention a few.
The Tannoys have outlasted all these (although the LS3/5A's are still technically mine - my Mum is using them).
