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

Revised cabinet

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.

Improved drive units
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.

Innovative materials
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.

Improved looks too
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.

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 5 out of 5áby gteat speakers great price Bought these speakers to go with other tannoy speakers in a surround sound set up sound realy good 01 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Wonderful sound and great price We brought these to replace some custom made floor standing speakers. Whilst much smaller than the ones they've replaced they provide excellent bass together with a crisp top end and warm midrange. Very happy with these. 11 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Absolute bargain I've been looking for a decent set of speakers to replace my previous Onkyo media package for a while. Seeing these at ú150 it was a complete no-brainer! The sound is fantastic, especially for the price. I strongly doubt you can buy a better pair of speakers for even twice the price! They're fairly large and have a very classic aesthetic - nothing groundbreaking but they look great in my sitting room! 10 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great Speakers with a low price tag I was looking to upgrade my 5.1 surround system. I had previously bought a mid-range Sony 5.1 speaker package which have stood the test of time. However, I hooked the Tannoy's in bi-wire to my Amplifier and listened to Adele at the Royal Albert Hall Blu-ray in stereo and Pure Direct. WOW! the speakers are very clear in bass and treble. I have heard sounds I never heard before. I had set them up without bi-wiring them initially but have to say that it DOES make a difference. For the price they are (ú150) at the time I purchased them - they were a steal! 06 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5áby Outstanding value for money After the statutory 24-36 hours burn-in these speakers begin to seriously impress. They have a very 'mature' hifi character: if you want little boxes that jump up and down excitedly, shouting 'look at me, I'm hifi' then go elsewhere. These dark brown monoliths sound authoritative and very 'in control' of the music. They exude a great sense of effortlessness and sound as great at low volumes as they do when filling the room with music. I power them from a Primaluna valve amp and - for the first time - use bi-wire (mid-range) cables. Not an exciting, but a rich, detailed and full sound - probably better aligned to classical than rock. I like them a lot and can't believe they only cost ú149.00 - that's upstanding value! 05 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great value for money I was looking for some good looking mid range replacement speakers and saw these on offer. They are exactly what I was hoping for, solid yet streamlined and unobtrusive, with great sound quality for the price. Exceptionally clear tone in the top ranges and good resonance in the lower range. 22 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby Punchy and sharp but controlled well enough to allow plenty of volume! Amazing speakers, only a few years ago what hifi gave these the best floorstanders under ú700 and I can hear why! They have plenty of bass to negate the need for a sub albeit maybe you still want one for when optimus prime is kicking off. The top end and the mids are great but controlled so you don't feel as if they're too sharp at higher volumes. Certainly happy with these for the price. Only negative I can think is removing the covers (which you should do of course) leaves six holes where the holders are for the plugs. My warfedale diamonds have the plugs around the cone on a circle so not noticeable when you take off the covers, but these still look great and are solid! 07 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5áby real gem Outstanding floor standing pair. Can't find any fault at this price. What hi fi 5 star winner too. 06 December 2015
