Clarity and definition of sound.
Superb midrange and bass performance.
For the price secondhand - There are NONE.
Tannoy DC 2000: From the moment I re-inserted the bi-wired banana plugs into the rear, these speakers impressed me again.
They are very well built and heavy with good quality gold posts at the back.
I listened to Dire Straits 'Latest Trick' and was instantly gripped by the sheer dynamic performance of these speakers. The cornet solo at the start sounded more sincere than it had before and when the alto sax came in it held a warmth that I had not heard for a long time but the sound was still tight and accurate.
Next cd up was Count Basie's 'Splanky' which really worked the speakers hard but again they performed above all my expectations.
I had to get the DC2000s down from the loft to review them as they were about to be sold but having listened to them now for the last time,
I felt unhappy with the deal, like I was selling a pair of old trusted friends.
I can only hope my D700 speakers will have the same effect on my eyes!
