"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 16 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5áby Superb subtle sound at low volume. So glad. They can deliver the power too. I bought these speakers after viewing online. Ordered by phone and they arrived promptly. Such a lovely sound at a lovely price. The speakers were bigger and heavier than I had envisaged. They sound so good for a relatively reasonable price. I really love them. Only running them on a lower powered and cheap amp at present and the efficiency is great. Lovely sound across the full spectrum. Can't wait until I repair the J Lindsey Hood amp to drive them... These are great speakers. I really love music of all sorts and these can cope so well with it all. I think that I could spend a factor of 10 times the price and barely hear an improvement. The speakers definitely do 'bed in' and mature as they are used. 09 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Brilliant sound brilliant price Deep rich bass with a smooth clean treble. Use them mainly for music. If you choose to use banana plugs, you have to unscrew each terminal, then pick off the little plastic black and red caps, then screw each terminal back on and make sure they are tight, then plug in the banana plugs. Very happy with this purchase and could not get much better in this price range. Hope this helps. 02 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 Great speakers and great value for money I am very pleased with my purchase. They look fantastic and the sound across the range is excellent. Great that they come with the carpet spiks and the cups should you want to mount them on a hard floor. 30 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 Now powered by NAD D 3020, simply stunning. I've had these speakers some 2+ years now and paid a bit over ú300 for them when new. I demoed various floorstanders in store before making the purchase and was upgrading from Mordaunt-Short MS914i floorstanders which were excellent but lacked bass. At the time I had a NAD C 325 Bee and I found the Tannoys went beautifully with that amp. The bass was better than the MS914i and the detail/clarity was all there. Stereo imaging I found to be greater as well which was a bonus. Really they must be heard to be believed. I knew the Tannoy V4 was a good speaker but I never knew just how good until I started using them with the new NAD. I'm playing audio via my PC using the USB and movies have new meaning, action scenes sounded as chest thumping as they do in a small cinema hall, you can really feel what's going on not just hear it. 29 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5áby Exellent Speakers I have had these speakers a week now, they replaced a pair of Sony SS176B Floor standers I find them a big syep up in sound quaility producing a balanced neutral sound and cope excellently with a wide range of music from good vocal contemporary music to heavy beat trance and everything between. Would recommend without hesitation. 07 August 2014
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
