"These floorstanders are an excellent buy. Little else at this price can match them." 'What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision magazine'. 5-star review. Tested at £1300.

Dual Concentric dive for enveloping sound

The Revolution XT 8F uses Tannoy's famous Dual Concentric drive units. With the tweeter in the throat of the main woofer, there's a single point source for high and mid-range frequencies. The result realistic vocals, and a broad and detailed sound-staging. The tweeter is a new PEI dome with Torus-Ogive WaveGuide, which provides smooth treble extension and pin-point precision. The woofers feature new Omnimagnet technology for superior cone control for an accurate bass and mid-range response.

Powerful bass response
With large, near-50 litre capacity cabinets and twin, 8-inch woofer cones, the XT 8F has little trouble dealing with the deepest bass notes. With exceptional bass response right down to 34Hz, these are the speakers to buy if you have a larger room or enjoy large-scale music. For a real thrill from your music or movies, the Tannoy XT 8F speakers truly deliver.

Dual cavity cabinet
The Tannoy speakers have an innovative cabinet design that greatly improves the sound quality. Dual-cavity cabinets with an internally coupled bass reflex system offer the best of both worlds; a smaller internal cabinet for precise, taught sound in the mid-range and a larger total volume size for extended bass. Also, a newly designed bass port at the foot of the speaker encourages low frequency energy forwards into the room, helping close-wall placement without the usual loss in quality.

Luxurious finish
With a choice of Espresso Dark Walnut or Medium Oak real wood veneers, the XT 8F is equal in finish to many more expensive speakers. Tannoy's typical attention to detail also extends to magnetic grille attachments, an etched trim ring and even 'Tannoy' branded bolt heads. For the money this is probably the best-finished speaker on the market.

Equally impressive with music or movies on a large scale, the Tannoy Revolution XT 8F speakers will have you captivated in the sound.

To get the best from these premium speakers, we recommend speaker cables from premium suppliers Audioquest, Atlas, Chord and QED. Custom made lengths and terminations are also available. Please ask in store for advice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from TANNOY SPEAKERS NOT GREAT POOR SOUND SLIVER 2 SPEAKERS ARE FAR BETTER HAD TANNOY ABOUT A WEEK I WOULD RETURN BUT DON,T NEED THE NIGHTMARE I WILL LIVE WITH IT

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb! You hear the music... not the cabinets. I had read so many glowing reviews of the XT-8Fs that I was concerned I'd be disappointed. I needn't have worried. I compared these with the Monitor Audio Silver 8 floorstanders and, given everything I'd heard about the tight and deep bass, I was initially confused by the lack of low end in the XT-8Fs. However I soon discovered that the racks and other demo kit in the Glasgow demo room was killing the lower frequencies at my listening position. I was aware that there was something about these speakers that I wasn't going to be able to experience in the store, so... Once they were delivered and set up in my living room (approx. 4' x 4.5') they sounded incredible straight out of the box. With time they have only got better. The low end is pretty tight and goes deep, the vocals are superb, piano, guitars, high-hats all sound natural. Most of all, the soundstage is engaging; you don't 'hear' the speakers. Best thing I can say is, music is fun again. I love these! Try them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! I sold my 5.1 surround system with Genelec 8020 main speakers and a Genelec sub, which were actualy top studio quality. They were very good, but for me too "neutral". I was looking for speakers that bring music to life, with high end clarity but especially loads of mid and low end grunt. I was used to a powerful sub, so the replacements had to have excellent bass performance. I read reviews which said these Tannoys were without competition in their price range, so I was keen to hear them. I tried their 6F smaller brothers first, but they didn't quite have the bass grunt I wanted, so I persuaded Hunter to search the stores and lug the 8Fs down. It was worth every drop of sweat (they are not small!). I played gritty guitar sounds, Jazz and classic, and in every case the instruments were clear and alive - crank up the volume and it's hard to believe you're not sitting right in front of the band. I'm now eagerly listening to all my music like I've never heard it before! 100% Recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound quality and value Early days but the sound of the XT8 is weighty and with snap and a really wide and 'close your eyes' soundstage I think down to those coincident drivers. I'm really pleased so far whilst running them in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Living sound I have a really eclectic taste in music ranging from grand opera to hip hop. I find these speakers handle everything that I have tried, As always Tannoy dual concentric cone gives the precision of definition over a full range of frequencies and volume settings that only these speakers appear to offer. The sound is just like sitting in the best seats at the opera house or concert hall. It really is like having a full orchestra in my lounge, like having the band or group live in front of you. These speakers really are something special, and produce what I can only describe as living sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifelike sound They are sounding better every day with amazing highs & superb bass. They seem to be a bit fussy with positioning though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Speakers - Expensive but you get what you pay for I bought these speakers after trying Tannoy XT6F, DALI Sensor 7 and Roksan TR-5 S2. The other speakers were very good, but the Tannoy XT8F were excellent. I I have a wide range of music tastes and these delivered on all of them. The size of them may put some people off. Now that i have had a chance to listen them at home they are absolutely excellent for home cinema to. Try all the speakers i have mentioned, but i sure you'll find the Tannoy XT8 the best of this bunch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speakers To start with I'm no audiophile, I had an old pair of B&W 220i speakers if anyone remembers them (probably 15 years old). I part exchanged them with these speakers and the difference is vast (I had a back to back listen). Not the best comparison with anything modern but the Tannoys have great sound in my opinion. I did listen to them back to back with the following and I `had no choice` (!) but to go for these as they were so much better. The competition on the demo I had: Q Acoustics 3050's (far too boomy, overpowering everything else), Dali 7's (great quality sound until I listened to the 8F's), Tannoy XT6F (great but light on the lower range). The guys at Richer Sound Guildford were very helpful and patient as I asked many times to swap between speakers!
