"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 5†by 27 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5†by Incredible speakers at a bargain price I'm amazed RS still have these in stock as they are a steal at £200. 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 5†by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 No brainer Using home-made speakers for many years. Looking for equivalent to my old Wharfedale Dovedale SP2 speakers (35Hz to 26kHz +-3dB, 120W peak, £200 in 1976). I thought I would have to pay 4 figures plus. Richer Sounds had Mercury V4 at a very cheap price. (In 2011 What HiFi reviewed as the ?best floorstander £350-£700?. What?s different now?) In Cheltenham store (affable bunch), sat down with Beethoven?s 9th and iPod full of eclectic music to objectively evaluate these speakers. I did for a short time, and then realised I had forgotten the speakers and was listening to the music. Bass you can sometimes feel, lively top end and exacting vocals. At the price, it was a ?no brainer?. I have used them for many hours, filling my lounge (9m x 4.5m) at up to concert levels with no noticeable quality degradation. To fault them; the spikes/cups feet are a pain when you want to move the speakers. I don?t love them like I did the old SP2s, yet. 21 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5†by Great look, sound and balance These speakers have along with the cambridge amp brought with it revolutionised my music listening, albums I have owned for years sound fantastic, the bass is amazing to hear in such detail but never overpowers. The simple features are all that's needed, the sound is crisp and clear, I'm picking out notes and string that I would not hear prior. They really are a joy to own, and they look great. They also compliment the project turntable I have too. 07 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5†by Excellent discontinued product at a bargain price These speakers replaced similar Tannoy shelf speakers and represent a significant improvement in sound quality. Because of the layout of my lounge the speakers are either side of where I sit rather than in front; hardly an ideal arrangement. Nevertheless they somehow manage to project the sound forward giving excellent results. 01 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5†by Owned for 4 years so far The sound they produce is astounding, considering the price of them, I bought them years ago when they were £350 and I don't regret it one little bit. I've owned and tested many many speakers over the years.... my own favourite being Wharfedale 310's.. very hard to come by these days. To find a modern floor stander that produce such dynamics,precision and power for less than £500 is no mean feat. The V4's are just awesome... don't think about the shape or the look of them..It's the sound that counts. 01 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5†by Quandary over Letting you know That I moved The Tannoys To the living room They sound excellent. My wife watches A lot of Television. The speakers front a Nad C320 Amp and cd player and Tivio Box . Tannoys and The Nad amp as stated earlier in another reviewer are perfect match for the V4. Five stars 19 November 2014
Rated 4 out of 5†by In a quandary Bought these from Richer Sounds Bournemouth. After spending to much time reading What Hi fi In Asda while waiting for my wife to do the shopping. Fell In love them and the reviews were great. Saw them in Richer Sounds for £199.99 Bought them. Wish now I had not. They sound great, They really do. But they do not sound better than Monitor Audio S1's That I already own. Personally These do not make me want to get up and dance and shake my head tap my feet. I Run a Rocksan system with them. There being kept and going in the living room. Fronting my Nad C320 and Nad cd player. They probably live up to their review in a larger room 16 November 2014
