"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.

Rated 4.9 out of 5áby 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby the 700 pound speaker for 279 You can spend all day trying out speakers and it is personal choice, but I think these Tannoys are a good all rounder, sure if you spend 1000 your going to get a better speaker. However having test speakers @ 500, 600 and 700 these little feisty ones are hard to beat. Great detail and so well matched with the Marantz pm 6005 and CD 6005 some tenuous link there if I am not mistaken. Break them in though and they improve with use. The high frequencies are just enough some newer tweeters can be a bit harsh. Easily driven. I like the design and they feel solid. Love the attention to detail with the metal surrounds on the speakers give it a quality look. Yes super for the price. 02 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Tannoy V4 Excellent speaker. Very detailed and clear sounding 18 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Great quality on a budget! I've had a Sony satellite setup for a few years and the active sub decided to start cutting out, so felt it was time for a change. I didn't have enough money to change all of my speakers, so decided to change the fronts for something larger so I didn't have a sub. After reading some reviews I decided to order these. I was not disappointed! I listen to all styles of music, from lounge jazz to black metal...and they seem to cope quite well with anything I throw at them :) The bass response at low volume is excellent, giving definite tone instead of just creating a rumble. I was surprised at the attention to detail for speakers in this price range...like the billet discs to place the spikes on if you have wood floors :) I also bought some biwire cable and highly recommend doing this instead of standard cable with the bridging plates. For ú249 (sale price) they were an absolute steal!!! I'm so impressed with them that I'm going to buy the bookshelf versions to replace my rear speakers. 15 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby good quality good price,exellent speakers,exellent servise.thanks 11 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Natural sounding speakers I have owned speakers before at a similar price but these Tannoy speakers are unbelievable in terms of audio quality for the price. Be aware, they really show-up poor source systems. I listen to 80s rock music and reggae. Vocals are very neutral and reggae bass is well controlled. You need to keep the speakers away from the wall. I am not sure the feet, metal spikes, which can be screwed into the bottom will be strong enough in the long term. With the spikes inserted it is not easy to move the speakers so be aware. Besides this design feature, the quality of construction is very good. 05 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Excellent speakers; excellent service. I popped into Richersounds near Spitalfields and these speakers were recommended to me; usual Richersounds service : really helpful, no pressure, just sensible advice. I ordered the speakers online paid a small amount for express delivery and they were with me by Tuesday. Wow! I am blown away by the refinement and detail of these speakers. They are teamed up with a Marantz CD6004 and a high end Yamaha AV amp. Simply superb on rock and pop soundtracks, I replaced two Kef Eggs with these speakers - and the Kef eggs weren't bad to be honest - but these speakers just offer so much more detail. For ú249.99 they are an absolute bargain. Well done RicherSounds. 23 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5áby Brilliant ! I bought these from the Stockport branch as display units, as such they had no packaging but the staff were exellent and found large amounts of bubble wrap to encase them in so they arrived home unscathed. They are hooked up to a TEAC AR610 after being disapointed with music reproduction of a Sony 1200 AV amp. The Tannoys are not wasted on an anlouge amp which they were on a digital one. The sound stage is so impressive that the Mission MV4s on channel 2 get turned off for CDs. They present a wall of beautiful clear tones, both high and amazingly low for 165mm drivers. The bass is perfectly in proportion unless turned up to shake the house. These speakers are so much more than good bookshelf units and make a centre speaker a total waste of money unless spending obsene amounts on a system. I would highly reccomend the V4s if listening to music more than watching films and particularly if the music is mainly accoustic as the string and voice reproduction is stunning. 20 November 2013
Rated 5 out of 5áby Fantastic speakers that punch way above their weight I bought these back in May from the Maidstone branch. I'd boiled my choice down to either these or the Mission MX3s. After spending over an hour in the demo room pitting one against the other I knew I'd made the right choice with these. Great soundstage with crisp, detailed highs without being too harsh, tight bass and a warm midrange. I have paired these with a Yamaha A-S500 and the two systems complement each other beautifully whether listening to vinyl or SACD. You'd be hard pressed to get this kind of quality sound until you start paying B&W kind of money. 23 October 2013
