Tannoy Lifestyle Revolution XT6 Book-Shelf Speaker (pair)
A dramatic upgrade to Tannoy’s bestselling Revolution series, the Tannoy Lifestyle Revolution XT6 Book-Shelf Speakers are, without a doubt, a must add to your entertainment system. Available online on Ooberpad, these bookshelf speakers are loaded with features.
The Revolution XT6 features a 6 inch multi fibre cone that combines with a 22 mm linear PEI dome. It also features the Torus-Ogive waveguide along with low laminated core inductors and audiophile components. Its 10.8 litre cabinet features the Revolution XT signature, a trapezoid shape that is fitted with a miniature plinth keeping in line with larger floor standing models. The plinth helps add low-down mass to the design, affording highly stable placement on stands or shelves for the most accurate acoustic reproduction. Its cabinet is heavily constructed and extensively braced and features an exceptionally low colouration that further enhances its ability to communicate nuances. Finally the Revolution XT 6 has an incredibly accurate mini-monitor for those who appreciate music presented with utmost detail and texture.

Key Features & Benefits of Tannoy Lifestyle Revolution XT6:
Revolution XT series
The Revolution XT series are a dramatic upgrade from Tannoy’s best-selling Revolution loudspeaker series. This range has retained Tannoy’s signature trapezoid cabinet shape, radical acoustic engineering and new patent-pending Tannoy technologies but also have some new tricks up their sleeve! The XT6 features handmade, premium audiophile components that take inspiration from Tannoy’s ‘simple, straight’ design philosophy. These beauties are capable of providing an ultra-clean signal path to retain the utmost musical information. Additionally, gold-plated bi-wire binding posts allow a robust cable connection for reliable signal transfer.
But that's not the only reason we're crushing on this range! The substantially built cabinets are handcrafted in a choice of dark walnut or medium oak veneers made from real wood. Providing acoustically beneficial cabinet rigidity, the Revolution XT 6F and XT 8F floorstanding speakers incorporate two chambers with a pioneering internal port system. The dual-cavity coupled reflex system optimises driver performance from low to mid frequencies, and adverse low-frequency standing waves are reduced.
LF energy exits from a down-firing port at the base of the floorstanding models, diffusing into the room between the cabinet and the integrated plinth. The design delivers tuneful and musically coherent bass reproduction while reducing room boundary effects and facilitating easy speaker placement.A high level audio performance is dictated by established acoustic design principles. So how do we improve an already impeccable driver design? This was the task for Tannoy’s team of highly experienced engineers whilst developing a new drive unit for the Revolution XT series. And it's safe to say that Tannoy aced it!
The Omnimagnet Dual ConcentricBased on a completely new Omnimagnet™ powered Dual Concentric™ driver, the Revolution XT range deliver a natural and engaging sound with exceptional imaging, wide HF dispersion and a deep, articulate bass. This is possible because of the integration of the Omnimagnet Dual Concentric - a completely new interpretation of Tannoy’s proprietary point source drive unit philosophy! This revolutionary new HF diaphragm and waveguide have been combined with a single magnet to deliver notable performance advantages.
Torus Ogive WaveguideSound engineers will tell you that a shallow waveguide with an aggressive flare allows for rapid expansion of the acoustic wavefront through the mouth of the bass driver. Articulate and precise reproduction, both on and off-axis, are provided through closer acoustic-centre alignment and phase coherence.
High frequency Torus dome
Torus refers to the donut shape of the HF diaphragm.The Revolution XT6 features an HF ‘dome’ that is precision engineered for wider and high frequency directivity.
