Great price, these are now discontinued but they are a bargain for anyone starting a home cinema system.

I wanted black too, but at this price I had to go for them.

I couldn't find any other prices or deals which came close.

Just unpacked my box, speakers look sweet !

As Lanse says, the difference between these speakers and the ones you suggested would be fairly dramatic.

I nearly bought an all-in-one system recently, but after comparing the sound to similarly-priced amp/speaker packages I swiftly changed my mind.
#15
Should probably make it clear that these require an amp to work, comparing with a £100 all in one system seems silly as an amp is required on top of these.

Got a 5.1 set with my Yamaha DSPAX761 in March, great set for the then price of £140, even better value now with an extra speaker.

Saw this deal posted at AVForums. Great deal the 5.1 set is going for £250 at my local Richers Sounds. Quite tempted but don't have a 5.1 amp at the moment.
#18
Perhaps these are discounted heavily because they are silver. I would definitely go for a black set at this price if they became available.

Buy these & get an amp. At this price you wont regret it if you are planning on having a home cinema package. The subwoofer sells on it's own for £99 & each satelitte will set you back £49.
#20
I want to hook these to my plasma ,but i dont nothing about how to do it .

As i take it i also need to buy an amp , does it have to be a really good amp to make the speakers be its best or can it be any old cheap amp?

Also are speakers wireless or would i have a trail of wires everywhere?

They aren't wireless (& you wont get any decent ones that are). It is fairly easy to set up the system, you will need an AV receiver and it depends how much you want to spend. Look at Richer Sounds & shop around. You can get a Denon AVR1907 for £150 or better an Onkyo for £199 or £249 for the better model. The Onkyo's have HDMI connections (which aren't essential as you can get digital audio to the Denon via your TV assuming it has digital out (coaxial or optical) & you don't have to have video through the receiver at all).

Read some reviews, if you can afford the Onkyo go for one of those.

I'll try posting that again as the last attempt fell over with a 404.
I've got Tannoy SFX 7.1's running off of an Onkyo TX-SR505 and the sound quality's superb, highly recommended, voted hot and rep added.
#23
Gudzy, I too have brought the Yamaha and have the same set up, connnected to my PS3 via HDMI.

However I have a problem because only the front two speakers are shown as being active on the display of the reciever. I have checked the connections. Any advice?
#24
Site was down for me for a while, but back up now
#25
these seem good for the price wish i could get them but il have to wait
#26
Hmmm.. took the plunge anyway, may have to try to spray the centre speaker black :idea:
#27
The black ones do look nice ,but the silver suit most of the stands that are available .

Mines arrived.Excellent!

Do you mind me asking how they sound and what they are replacing? (for comparison)

Gale sub,two Sony floorstanders,two Tangent sats,one yamaha centre .I am keeping the Sony,s for another room.The Mrs & I are redecorating the front room .She is fed up with the space,wiring etc. of the present set up.With the hidden wiring & more discreet speakers I should receive less flak.This is powered by a Yamaha RX-V640 rds receiver.Hopefully will be set up at the weekend .

Alright folks. Long time lurker, first time poster.

Had my system arrive this morning, although ordered it without realising an amp was needed (i'm a technophobe!).

Given the fact I'm a skint student I can't afford to buy a super-duper amp, but also don't want to have to send back what seems like a very good deal. Is there an amp around the £100 mark that i can get that will do my system justice. Would be using speakers for TV, but mostly games/dvds/blue-rays played on my ps3.

i also have a 1080p tv, although i'm not sure what difference that makes.

any help would be GREATLY appreciated. i know certain amps don't suit certain systems, but that's as far as my knowledge goes.
#33
Go to Richersounds.Theres a choice of a Yamaha or Sony AV/receiver at £119.Plus tell them you are a student (might take a bit off) .Watch some HD input at 1080p....you will then know what difference that makes.
#34
Ordered these as I just bought an Onkyo amp. Very excited to hear them in action. Great deal :-)
banned#35
thanks for the reply lanse!

although (Sorry to be a pain again) could you actually provide a link for each amp?
and which is the better, if there is any difference at all?

Finally, are you SURE these will work ok with my new speaker set? have read up a bit and it seems amps need to be very specific to the speaker set to do it justice. Does it have the nessacary hdmi ports and 'outs' and all that stuff?

thanks again

Head down to your store, and take a look at what they have.
You ideally want something with a couple of HDMI inputs - http://www.richersounds.com/showproduct.php?cda=showproduct&pid=SONY-STRDG710-SIL is a basic amp, and very keenly priced - it will cope just fine with the Tannoy set.
Connect all your kit to it with HDMI and Component+Optical/Coax, and you'll hear surround sound in the form of DolbyDigital and DTS. It will also act as a video source switch when used this way.
Amps in this price range won't cope with "HD" audio - but don't worry about that - the "old" DD and DTS systems still sound great !

thanksfor the help!

although, surely getting te hd sound would enhance the experience greatly? or is the sound difference minimal?

how much more would i be looking to pay for a reciever that would run hd sound?

im pretty sure the cheapest hd sound amp is the sony dg820 that is £250 at play.com but dont think it be worth getting as usually you spend more on the speakers then the amp
banned#39
yeah, i know. but i'm not going to spite myself by sticking to that rule jsut cause these speakers were cheap?

so if i get a hd amp, i can play hd sound? is it worth the extra £100+?

thanks again, and sorry for persistant questioning!

to be honest im not exactly sure if youll hear a difference. its just that i was in a similar position and after reading threads and receiving advice on avforums i came to the conclusion that its not worth spending the extra on a hd amp unless you buy better speakers first or you intend on upgrading each speaker bit by bit.

last thing the only person who can tell if it will sound better is you so if youve got a richersound store next to you try and go in and see if you can get a demo with these speakers and a sony hd amp and then a normal amp. this might help a little bit
