TDC - Sound on Sound

French company Prodipe continue to surprise us with affordable gear that performs rather better than its price might lead you to expect, so I was keen to try out their new coaxial studio monitors. Although Tannoy are probably the biggest name in coaxial monitoring, a number of other companies have developed variations on the theme.

 

Pros

  • Affordable.
  • Dual-concentric design gives good off-axis performance.
  • Can be desk mounted or mounted on a shelf in either horizontal or vertical orientations.
  • Good overall tonal balance.

 

Cons

  • The larger TDC8s sound a little 'plummy' at the bass end -- a feature of many lower-cost ported designs.

 

Summary
Both these speakers offer a good balance of cost to performance but, for my money, the smaller TDC5 is the better sounding of the two, albeit with less bass extension.
