DC8 Ti

The smaller floorstanding loudspeaker in the Definition series, the DC8Ti is capable generating the power and dynamics of a full scale orchestral score yet capable of resolving the smallest details. This commanding loudspeaker for the discerning listener features Tannoy’s latest 200mm (8.00”) Dual Concentric drive unit with WideBand™ tweeter, augmented with a precision matched 200mm (8.00”) inch bass driver. The mid-bass drivers of both units use precision matched cones formed of a Tannoy proprietary paper fibre pulp mix, terminated with a rubber roll surround and bonded to a 44mm edge-wound voice coil.


The exceptional rigidity of the port tuned plywood enclosure and extensive use of Tannoy DMT™ material allows the 8” drivers to work in perfect harmony with the 43 litre rear ported enclosure. The Deep Cryogenically Treated straight path crossover, silver plated OFC and pure silver conductors, extensive use of Tannoy DMT™ technology and Tannoy’s unique fifth speaker terminal for driver grounding ensures the DC8Ti’s class leading fidelity and articulation. The extreme power handling of up to 400watt peaks, 90db/Watt sensitivity and bass response down to 33Hz defines the DC8Ti as a truly potent floorstanding loudspeaker.


Bold, imposing yet effortlessly elegant, then Definition DC8Ti cabinet is crafted from the finest grade plywood specifically chosen for its natural acoustic properties. The complex curve reduces resonances and internal reflections, improving mid-band clarity and greatly enhancing micro detailing. A special bracing mechanism, incorporating Tannoy’s Differential Material Technology™ (DMT), rigidly couples the driver/enclosure interface, further improving Definition DC8Ti’s accuracy in instrumental timbre.


The DC8Ti cabinet is supplied with a new sculpted plinth that visually extends the smooth lines of the design while delivering substantial benefits. It’s top-adjust spikes make for easy set-up and levelling while its integrated energy grounding stabiliser weight ensures the DC8Ti delivers incredibly tight and articulate bass. Each Definition DC8Ti cabinet is hand finished to an exceptionally high standard in a choice of high gloss lacquered real wood veneers or high gloss black with subtle aluminium trim and magnetic grille mount.
