Tannoy Stirling III LZ Special Edition 2-way 10″ dual concentric speakers in oiled walnut, a new legend is born!
When the Beatles ”All you need is love” reached the UK Top 10 in 1967, Tannoy released the legendary III LZ (Monitor Red) With a 10” Dual concentric transducer that was specifically designed for small enclosures, providing the warmth and clarity of its bigger 12” and 15” counterparts.
More than just a tribute to the legendary III LZ first released in 1967, it offers a wide-frequency response and deep bass extension for natural imaging at high SPLs.
Years of acoustic excellence have led to this moment; you’ll hear every boom, breath and beat with a new level of clarity and depth.
Faithful to the Original
Every design element crucial to the STIRLING III LZ’s breathtaking dynamic range, clarity of sound and classic look has been faithfully preserved. 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 STIRLING III LZ’s loudspeaker cabinets are completely handcrafted by our highly skilled team of artisans.
They are a match made in heaven if you listen to Orchestral Music, Rock, Pop, Blues or Soul. That said, they are perfectly capable of generating goosebumps when you listen to Jazz, R’n’B, Heavy Metal or anything in between.
Dual Concentric Precision
We invented the dual concentric speaker design in 1947, and it has been refined and improved continuously over the decades.
With the STIRLING III LZ SPECIAL EDITION you get the very latest incarnation of this pristine design that has won critical acclaim over and over for nearly 70 years!
The Dual Concentric driver used in STIRLING III LZ’s provides class-leading coherence and point-source imaging for that highly sought after truly natural sound. Thanks to its Pepperpot Waveguide and Alnico motor system, STIRLING III LZ delivers breathtaking dynamics, powerful transient response and unparalleled realism across a wide frequency range with an almost total lack of colouration. Combine that with an aluminium-magnesium diaphragm and Mylar surround compression driver and you get studio quality tones and perfectly balanced sound pressures in all directions.
