"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 5 out of 5 by from Superb speakers, with no compromise I visited the Maidstone branch of Richer Sounds, and was fortunate to have the simply brilliant Todd show me the ropes. The service and attention i received from Todd was absolutely staggering, from start to finish. Given that i was looking to spend between £2-£3k, his approach and consultative style was perfect for realising my requirements. He listened very attentively, assimilated and contributed and refined my thoughts. Ultimately, we settled on these Tannoys, as I budget wasnt a major factor and the sound they produce, was to my ear, such that I didnt feel like I had 'settled'. Todd even got me a £150 discount which narrowed the price difference between these and their smaller cousins. I like to know that if I want to make a well informed purchase that I can do so with great advice and support, I shall be coming straight back whenever I need anything that Richer Sounds caters for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality, great sound I bought these speakers to match my roksan set up. These speakers are unbelievably good for the price, especially at the price richer sounds are selling them for! These are by far the clearest quality speakers I have heard for the money and would definitely recommend them to anyone. I personally think that if you want to better these speakers you would be spending at least £1700

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Ordered Boxing Day,delivered 3rd January,great service for this time of year.Quality real wood veneer,far nicer than imitation plastic wrap.Outstanding sound straight out of the box but have run them in now.Can't tell much difference but the sound stage is so detailed and the attack of the base is great.My amplifier has the tone controls switched off and the sound is excellent.I knew my Sony floorstanders were budget speakers but didn't realise till now how budget they were.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Tannoy XT8F floorstanding speakers. Not yet run in, but already sounding excellent. These speakers give no hint of boxiness, bass reproduction is superb, treble perhaps a little bright, but this may be partnering or newness. I have not experienced dual concentric drivers before, however focus, soundstage and dynamics are first rate. As is the norm, customer service from Richer Sounds Exeter is second to none. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value, clean midrange and tight bass I bought the Tannoys to replace a pair of Polk LS70 s in a 5.1 AV system. Initial impressions are very positive. I plan to replace th centre speaker with another Tannoy in the near future and the rears in due course. The staff at Richer Sounds in Eton couldn't have been more helpful, a pleasure to do business with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great clarity, punch and awesome room filling sound. I originally went in to Richer Sounds in Exeter to listen to the XT6F speakers in this series. I spent about 40 minutes listening to XT6F's and enjoyed some of my favourite music at high volume. Jamie then connected up the XTF8's and I repeated my playlist. It was immediately obvious that these were the speakers for me. They just seemed to have a far more substantial and detailed sound than their smaller brothers. When I got them home and set up the performance was even better. I have a very large room and they fill it with great clarity and detail but also kick seriously hard. I am hearing new subtleties in all my previous favourite music. If you have the option to have them delivered then I recommend you take it. I have quite a large car but getting a pair of these in presented and interesting challenge!
