The new Tannoy Reveal 5A active near field monitor builds upon the success and
recording industry reputation of the famous original Tannoy Reveal Active. When
launched in the mid nineties, the Reveal Active was widely recognised as the product
that defined the category and has been the active monitor of choice for thousands of
amateur and professional recording, creative composition and postproduction facilities
From the front:
40mm MDF sculpted baffle ? stiff, heavy and rigid and minimises diffraction.
Recessed drive units flush with the baffle surface ? minimises diffraction.
10 point fixing maximises contact between drive unit and baffle.
Bass unit development using Klippell? analysis equipment to minimise offsets
and linearise the suspension components.
New tweeter has wide band design extending the amplitude response beyond
20kHz audibility to 30kHz to correct the phase response from 8kHz to 14kHz
within the audible band. This preserves the harmonic structure of sounds and
the stability of the stereo image .
Smooth tweeter faceplate contours prevent diffraction and cavity effects.
On/Mute (energy saving mode) via the Tannoy logo push switch.
LED indicator shows Active/Energy Saving modes.
Front mounted volume control for convenient Home Studio and PC/MAC
From the sides:
18mm MDF cabinet construction provides stiffness and minimises colouration.
Internal construction braces the sides and rear of the cabinet against the rear of the
bass driver to provide a rigid reactive mass for the moving cone assembly. Ensures
fast tight bass response and clear midrange.
Front baffle and rear panel tongued and grooved into the cabinet as a mechanical
interlock for safety if wall mounted.
From the rear:
Double insulated to prevent ground loops ? no safety earth required.
CSA/CE/CCC/CB full safety approvals including China.
Spare fuse in IEC mains connector.
On/Off mains isolator switch.
Substantial heat sinking for long term cool running and 24/7 reliability.
XLR and _? jack Combi connector for balanced input.
Frequency response (1) 65Hz to 30kHz
Max SPL (2) 109dB
