Further information: 

I've owned this pair of Tannoys for about 3 years. These have the DC386 drivers/crossovers, also known as Arden's mkII or 3828, built into beautifully crafted Arundel cabinets with the cork finished front baffle.

The cabinets have a square cross section which achieves the same volume as the original Arden mki including the bass reflex port, I know this as I measured both for comparison purposes.

The roll surrounds were replaced by Tom Manning from SpeakerBits in 2018 with the correct, genuine surrounds as can be seen from the pictures, you won't have to worry about it for a long time. 

The finish of the cabinets were a bit dull when I got them so I have cleaned them up with 0000 steel wool and lightly sanded before applying Howards Restor-a-Finish which really brought out the stunning book matched timber veneer finish. Lastly the veneered cabinets were treated with Howard's Feed-n-Wax treatment. 

 

For those considering these speakers, they are a lot more space friendly and less intrusive than the Arden cabinets due to their square footprint with no compromises in their classic big Tannoy dual concentric sound.

 

Power handling: 10-200 Watts @ 8 Ohms

Size: 49 x 49 x 100cm (W x D x H)

Weight: 46kg each approx. 

 

Please PM with any questions.

Great pair of speakers ! Offering that large scale tannoy sound that now costs about 3 times this price , due to the lower production numbers I doubt we will ever see another pair of arundels for sale any time soon  !

I've let the seller know that I can pack these safely in a solid crate for safe shipping and can load with a forklift at this end to save on costs, though I am aware the preference is for a local sale.

Ive got the original tannoy Arden mk2 and they are amazing speaker. There like quality headphones. These speakers listed are the same drivers. They sound really good with low powered amps in big rooms but in a smaller room you can use a high powered amp to control the 15 inch bass driver. When it comes to dual concentric tannoys are the best. Also they are known for there 15inch drivers.

Having listened to this speakers many times in person, I can guarantee that the new owner is going to enjoy them and fall in love with Tannoys.

The Audiophilliac posted some videos featuring the large 15" dual concentric Tannoy speakers, including an interview with Nelson Pass showing his Listening room.

 

Mr Pass Labs referred to Tannoy as "the reference standard speaker at Pass Labs" - I thought this was pretty cool.

Eventually I might step from my dual concentric ‘wannabes’ (Beyma’s) to some MG15’s, but these cabinets are truly lovely piece of carpentry. GLWTS

      Item Condition: Used Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Regents Park State: NSW Payment Method: Cash on Pickup, EFT Reason for selling: NLR Further information:
       
      (PRICE DROPPED) $1900 --> $1700
       
      The DM2000 is a two-way, three-driver floorstanding speakers. The bass and midrange frequencies are handled  7-inch woofer and a passive Acoustically Driven Radiator (ADR) of the same size. Crossover frequencies above 3,000 Hz are radiated by a 1-inch dome tweeter.
      An electronic time delay (ETD) circuit is built into the DM2000's crossover-network system. The crossover filter proper is a fourth-order Butterworth design with steep, 24-dB-per-octave slopes in the stop-bands.
       
      Each speaker weight around 25kg.
      Cabinet is kept in great condition, however one of the speaker's top rear glass corner is chipped during moving house but it does not affect the sound. Also, one of the speaker's bottom "DM-2000" badge is missing.
       
      Had this pair of speakers serviced at "Speaker Hospital" in April 2020. which cost around $1300 (service invoice attached).
      Also, new speaker terminal has been replaced with modern terminal.
      It sound way better than the time i just acquired it.  
      But time to clear out some equipment to raise fund for other upgrade.
