"A feisty-sounding floorstander, offering great performance at a fantastic price." What Hi-Fi Sound & Vision magazine.

For the latest version of this floorstanding classic, Tannoy has revised the cabinet, improving the cabinet rigidity and construction. The improved cabinet offers lower resonance thereby giving a punchy bass response and improved timing.

Contained within the new cabinet are similarly new drive units. The twin bass cones are lighter and more rigid than before, making the bass faster to respond and the mid-range more detailed. With twin bass drivers the Tannoy V4 creates effortless depth and can sustain bass notes for longer. The treble unit has been changed, too, and has been picked for its exceptional accuracy at this price point. New cabinet, woofers and tweeter make for a pretty comprehensive upgrade but Tannoy haven't left it at that. The crossover features Tannoy's innovative compound, DMT (Differential Materials Technology). This is used to mount vibration sensitive components and creates lower distortion in the higher frequencies as the capacitors are able to work more effectively. Also standard for the first time is silver-plated oxygen-free copper; usually the preserve of much more expensive speakers. This improves the articulation of sound and makes for a more transparent sound.

When taken together, all these features add up to a very impressive sounding loudspeaker. Although dynamic and punchy, as you'd expect from this size of speaker, the Tannoy V4 is also extremely refined and detailed. There's a level of clarity that you wouldn't usually expect from a speaker of this size and price.

In addition to raising the game in terms of sound quality, Tannoy has also improved the looks of the V4. Now with brushed aluminium trim and revised colours, the Tannoy V4 looks better than ever with today's typical decors and home cinema and hi-fi equipment.

For a 5-star floorstanding speaker that matches grace with pace, the Tannoy V4 is a top contender.

Speaker Enclosure TypeType of speaker enclosure. Infinite baffle cabinets are sealed and so are often less fussy about placement. Usually they do require a little more power to drive, though. Bass reflex speakers are usually more efficient than infinite baffle designs but may require more care in terms of placement. Rear port designs, in particular, usually need at least 15-30cm (6 - 12 inches) between them and the wall behind, for a balanced bass response.

Rated 4.9 out of 5áby 33 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby Sensational speakers Great sound from these floor standing speakers with good delivery and power for all types of music, highly recommended 24 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby A superbly-built product producing top quality sound at a bargain price Forty years ago I was in a shop and heard a man with a distinctive voice talking clearly from a corner of the room. I couldn't see the man and suddenly became aware that I was hearing his voice through a pair of Tannoy loudspeakers! It was then I decided that I would one day buy a pair of my own. I had seen the Mercury V4s for sale in Richer Sounds for ú250 but felt it would be extravagant to replace my existing, perfectly good speakers for no reason. However, when they were offered at ú199.95 through the VIP Club, this was an offer I could not resist! The speakers were sealed in their original packaging and undamaged. I am not disappointed with the sound quality. Treble is crisp without being too sharp. Bass is well-balanced and definitely not boomy. They sound good at low and medium volumes and I can see no reason to drive them with any more than about 20W because they are so efficient that the sound is sufficiently loud for the larger-than-average room. 09 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Excellent sound quality for the price Great sound with different genres of music. Sufficient power to fill a large lounge/dining room. Well finished product with good appearance with or without speaker covers in place. 05 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby sound great Got the tannoy mercury v4 speakers to go with my yamaha amp and the sounds great with music and films as part of a 5.1 system would recomend.the staff at richer sounds are helpfull and know there stuff great 02 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great product Great looking speakers that deliver an excellent quality sound, clear and precise, as good as many more expensive speakers 20 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Tannoy V4 Although bought for my son, I've had extensive demos and can review them on that basis. These are very large speakers. I thought my Mission M33i's were big but the Tannoys are even taller. They sound superb, lots of bass (even though they're not run in yet) clear midrange and sparkling treble. I was bit wary of my son's Teac AD-D200 AV Receiver but coupled with the Tannoy V4's it absolutely dazzles. The sound has become 'natural' and often fools me into thinking he's spoken but its his system. 14 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Incredible speakers at a bargain price I'm amazed RS still have these in stock as they are a steal at ú200. I've owned separates since I was kid back in 1972 & even used to sell hi-fi in London in the late 70's & it's still a very important part of my life..... after 20 years, the wife has now accepted this fact! In December 2014 these speakers replace a 20 year old pair of Tannoy 636 which still work & sound great, but when compared side by side to the V4's, the clarity was scarily better (& I loved those 636s). Now even my wife is noticing details she hadn't heard before & I'm trying desperately not to mention that subtle percussion, 3rd guitar or keyboard line that I've not heard before. Once they're bi-wired, they sound even crisper of course & coupled with a Marantz 6005 amp & CD player, they really are accurate, clear & detailed. 08 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great advice, service and price These were recommended to me over a different model coming in within my budget. Sound great - deep punchy bass, sparking treble and clear unmuddled middle. Look lovely - slimline, nicely finished cabinet and not too imposing for floorstanders and I am very pleased with my purchase. Thanks to Richer Sounds Preston for the great advice and price. 25 April 2015
