Tannoy unveils two new models of monitors, the 501a and 601a.

The 501a is an active monitor with a 60W integrated amplifier designed to ensure efficiency from the 5” LF/MF driver and 1” soft dome tweeter. The 501a’s response has been optimised for nearfield operation, the company says.

The 601a delivers sound through its larger 6.5” LF/MF driver and 1” soft dome tweeter. With a total power output of 90W, this speaker with extended lower frequency response is described as "the ideal solution for home, project and pro studio set-ups alike."

Note: The 601a also available as a 601p passive monitor – specifications below.
