Tannoy Eclipse One Loudspeakers
All that you love and all that you feel from music, delivered by Tannoy’s most affordable high delity loudspeaker series to date.
Starting with Tannoy’s proven heavyweight breboard cabinet design, the Eclipse series is internally braced to minimise cabinet colouration and deliver tighter, more tuneful bass. The cabinets are rear ported to assist deep bass reproduction and keep the front baf e’s clean lines. A dedicated plinth is provided on both oorstanding models providing stability and ensuring fast and taut low frequency performance. This isfurther enhanced with adjustable oor spikes for precise levelling of the speaker cabinet without damage to carpets.
Eclipse drivers are a whole new design from Tannoy. The range mates a 28 mm (1.10”) coated silk dome tweeter with new high ef ciency Eclipse mid/bass drivers for seamless integration and an incredibly dynamic sound throughout the audio band. The LF drivers have been developed with a light, stiff multi- bre cone with nitrile rubber surround for superb transient attack and bass punch. High ef ciency neodymium magnets on the HF drivers extend frequency response to 32 kHz, for smooth and detailed treble.
Eclipse crossovers draw on the design and component choices of Tannoy’s more af uent models, including the use of low loss laminated core inductors for exceptional musical detailing. Tannoy’s unique DMT (Differential Materials Technology) compound is used to damp micro vibrations on the polypropylene capacitors, further enhancing Eclipse’s musicality and communication.
The floorstanding Eclipse Three benefits from a D’Appolito driver con guration. Placing the tweeter centrally between the two bass/mid drivers smooths dispersion through the crossover region, delivering a highly articulate performance on or off axis. Again drawing on Tannoy’s high end loudspeaker designs, Eclipse drivers are mounted using Tannoy’s DMT and use eight bolts on the mid/bass drivers to ensure optimal cabinet to driver integration.
Available in three models, the compact Eclipse One is an ideal bookshelf size loudspeaker and can be stand mounted for peak performance. The Eclipse Two is a smaller floorstanding model using the same driver array as the Eclipse One, adding deeper bass extension and improved power handling. The mighty Eclipse Three is the agship oorstanding model using a twin bass driver array in a larger cabinet to combine exceptional music imaging with deep and tuneful bass. Finished in dark yet cool satin black oak and equipped with robust gold-plated speaker terminals, Eclipse leaves other budget loudspeakers in the shade.
The smallest loudspeaker in the Eclipse series, the Tannoy Eclipse One is ideal for those that demand audiophile sound quality in the smaller room. Capable of working their best on a bookshelf or, even better, mounted on dedicated stands, these compact loudspeakers are ideal for connecting to budget stereo amplifiers or amplified network streamers. Eclipse One delivers a much larger and more spacious musical presentation than its compact cabinet dimensions would suggest.
The Eclipse One feature a 0.8 litre heavyweight fibreboard cabinet with a single Eclipse 127 mm (5.00”) mid/bass driver and the range’s 28 mm (1.10”) dome tweeter. A simple two-way design for musical purity, the Eclipse One boasts up to 140 watts peak power handling, high 87 dB/watt efficiency and a Wideband frequency response from 55 Hz up to over 32 kHz. This makes the Eclipse One ideal for High Resolution Audio and gives the design plenty of headroom for standard resolution (20 Hz-20 kHz) music.
With its sturdy gold-plated speaker terminals, close tolerance components and the use of Tannoy’s high tech DMT coupling, the Eclipse One is a high-tech speaker delivering audiophile sound at a price well below similar specified competitor models. Its satin black oak finish, subtle trim detailing and removable grilles, make it suitable for any room in the home.
