Do you really price match?
We will match any e-Commerce (Online store) Authorized USA Dealer's advertised price. Please call us toll free (877) 370-1972 and alert us to where you found the product cheaper. We will verify, and if the site is an Authorized US Dealer- we will match their price. However, if the price is below the manufacturer Minimum Advertised Price (MAP)- we will have to get authorization to match the price. We will not violate our signed agreements that we have with our vendors.
What about price matching from an auction site?
We do not price match any auction or "grey market" site.
Be advised, any purchases from an auction or unauthorized (grey market) websites can lead to future issues in regards to warranty or support. Most manufacturers will not honor any claims or warranty from these type of sales. Spend your money wisely by purchasing from an Authorized Dealer. In a lot of cases, saving a little bit of money can cost you more after the sale is completed.

Tannoy - Cheviot - 12" Dual Concentric Floor Standing Speakers (Pair)
In the 1970s TANNOY created a range of monitors that forever changed the way studio engineers and audiophiles alike chose to experience high-quality audio. The TANNOY HPD Series quickly became some of the most beloved hi-fi loudspeakers of all time.
More than just a homage to its predecessor, the Legacy Series ARDEN, CHEVIOT and EATON Loudspeakers further elevate the TANNOY HPD heritage of outstandingly transparent performance with the implementation of new, up scaled drivers and components – technology that was unavailable at the time. Simply put, the Legacy Series delivers legendary HPD performance to a new generation of music aficionados.
Music is an art form that needs to be experienced in all its beauty, detail, and nuance without the coloration that can instantly detract from its purest essence. A truly great loudspeaker design enables the speaker system to remove itself from the soundscape and present the music in a manner that envelopes you in the same way as a live performance.

Faithful to the Original
Every design element crucial to CHEVIOT’s breathtaking dynamic range, clarity of sound and classic look has been faithfully preserved. Much more than just a clone of the original, this new version of the classic benefits greatly from the evolution of driver and electronic component technology. In keeping with the TANNOY mode of excellence, each CHEVIOT loudspeaker cabinet is completely handcrafted by our highly skilled team at our Coatbridge, Scotland workshop.
Studio Quality Audio in Your Home
The Dual Concentric driver used in CHEVIOT provides class-leading coherence and point source imaging for that highly sought after truly natural sound. CHEVIOT's 500-Watt 12" dual driver delivers breathtaking dynamics, powerful transient response and unparalleled realism across a wide frequency range with an almost total lack of coloration. Many of the world’s greatest hits have been recorded and mixed using TANNOY studio monitors, and listening to these speakers is like having the artist right there in your living room. Breathtaking yesterday; equally breathtaking today...
Outstanding Components are just the starting point
It takes a lot more than quality materials and hand-selected drivers to build a great loudspeaker; it takes engineering experience with a deep understanding of acoustics, dedicated craftsmanship, inspiration, and a healthy dose of imagination. For example, the crossover network employed in the CHEVIOT features 2 independent channels that have been skillfully designed to bring out the best of the separate LF and HF sections of the Dual Concentric driver – ensuring a truly natural sound. Since loudspeakers actually perform their work in your living space, instead of an anechoic chamber, a front mounted 2 band energy control panel allows you to selectively boost or cut the high frequencies to fit your room or personal taste. CHEVIOT also has heavy duty 24 karat multi-layer gold plated WBT* bi-wireable binding posts to provide optimal signal transmission and integrity, plus a fifth binding post to reduce RF interference and improved mid range clarity.
The CHEVIOT Enclosure
The enclosure is made following the original CHEVIOT design, but benefits from new high-density materials that weren’t available back in the 1970s. The resulting cabinet provides extreme rigidity to control low-frequency performance and boasts extensive bracing incorporating DMT (Differential Materials Technology) for proper driver coupling. The base of the enclosure features 8 mm coupling spikes that provide added stability, and help to dissipate unwanted energy that might otherwise detract from CHEVIOT’s pristine performance.
The Legacy Lives On
TANNOY’s long and storied legacy lives on in the new CHEVIOT Floor-Standing 12" Hi Fi Loudspeaker; a legacy that has endured the test of time and adapted with the evolution of technology. Whilst the bass is quite deep for the size of the CHEVIOT enclosure relative to the driver size, the speed, and leading impulse is exciting and rewarding. Vocals are a little forward, as with many monitoring speakers, allowing the nuances of the voices to be fully appreciated. The smooth transitions to the HF device and the high sensitivity of the horn loaded dual concentric provide amazing clarity with a dynamic transient response. Every CHEVIOT includes an ‘owner’s care package’ as well as a Birth Certificate heralding its authenticity. CHEVIOT simply has to be experienced...
