Further Information


Consists of TDL RTL 3 fronts, TDL Nucleus 1 surround speakers and CCS centre speaker. No subwoofer required!

British manufactured and a star in their day.  Hybrid reflex transmission line design, with great bass extension (down to 30Hz). 
The foam plugs for the transmission line ports on the front of the speaker have perished but are inconsequential to output. The grille of the centre speaker has perished but has been replaced with a piece of foam to protect the drivers from dust etc. 

"Transmission Line loudspeaker systems incorporate a complex and potentially expensive method of reproducing lower bass frequencies than other speakers of a similar size. This bass is open and unrestricted, in a manner simply not achievable from conventional sealed box speakers."
