Seem to come highly recommended for budget speakers and this is cheaper than anywhere else I found. Great deal!
#2
The Tannoy Custom F1's are good value for money - if your unsure, you could pop down to your local Richer Sounds to get a demo. :thumbsup:

Here's a link to one of the What Hifi Reviews: http://whathifi.com/Review/Tannoy-Mercury-F1-Custom/

I used to work with sound systems many years ago, and Tannoy were a respected make way back then. I've lost touch somewhat these days, but this seems a good price for a respected pair of speakers. Have some heat.

A Google brings up a number of very favourable reviews for these babies.
#4
Been thinking about a pair of these for a while from richer sounds - but these are loads cheaper. Cheers :-D

Aslo in dark oak for £1.06 more.
#5
Or for another pound or so they are available in dark oak finish.

what would be a good amp to go with these - under £200

People seem to like the Cambridge Audio ones.

I have these in cambridge audio set-up from richer sounds and have to say they are well worth the £70 or so that amazon have priced them at. i think richer price them at £99 and even at that price they seem to be well worth it!

i'll vote hot on this one.

as for an amp for under £200...the cambridge audio amps that richer sells (i know they own the company) are as about as good as you will get for your money and at this price range i definitely take a look at what richer's has from CA.

I think you'd be better off with a Nad C325.

I just ordered one for £199 here: http://www.play.com/Electronics/Electronics/4-/3594922/NAD-C325BEE-Stereo-Integrated-Amplifier/Product.html

just an addition to my previous post about the cambridge audio amps....at the lower end of the price range at least these do not come with a phono stage which you will need if you want to hook up a turntable. there are a couple of CA options for this starting at about £40 but should be noted when thinking about buying an amp (at least it is important for me!)
#14
No need to buy an amp just a DJ mixer or a small Studio Mixer.
#15
Gotta admit, I did cave in and just ordered a pair of these. Had been thinking about getting some speakers to use as my rear surrounds and for this price and their reviews I could hardly resist.
Gonna be used with the Onkyo 605 :)

Now to tell the missus and get the space sorted out...!

I've tried a number of feed thru boxes to allow phone via aux socket, all with varying degrees of hum. I then had a brainwave, a Technics seperates system I picked up at a car boot for the record player had an old amp withing it, I used this to feed the phone in, and the 'cassette out' feed into the aux of my main sherwood reciever, worked perfectly, hum gone, nice and clear. never kept the Technics turntable either, as I picked up a JVC linear front loader at another car boot - the just don't make turntables like they used to! (well, maybe the ridiculously pricey laser-read ones, but i aint well off enough for one of them!.
#17
they are quite big and hardly discreet which is why i went for Kef 3005's instead
but tannoy are a very good maker of speakers....had some tannoy mercurys 2's that i used almost everyday and sometimes very loud too for almost 20 years...no problems and sold them on ebay last year.....most ****** mini/midi hifis will be lucky to last 1/10th of that time

For all the people talking about speakers in the £200 range.

Pick up a pair of B&W 601 602s on an auction website. Nothing beats them in my eyes.

Also, I wouldn't recommend a 2.1 set-up for music at all to be honest.

For a better price contact your local Richer Sounds and they will price match plus £5 extra off. I did it a few weeks ago and it takes 2 mins instore. After much research I opted for these speakers matched to a Yamaha CRX-M170 Dab system, its a 2nd system I use in the kitchen. The Tannoy's have won What Hi-Fi's "Best speaker's under £150" category for the last 2 or 3 consecutive year's, that includes the 2008 awards. The nearest competition I believe is Mordaunt short 902i (£100) and Wharfedale Diamond 9.1 (£120) which are both physically larger speakers. The Tannoy's are very musical speakers, they reproduce musical instruments and voices very well and clearly. They are not bass heavy speakers for thumping dance music out with, other slightly larger models may be better in that case, probably even floorstanders. But overall I think they are great for budget separates or a decent little denon / onkyo / yamaha micro system and for £72 (or £67) they are a bargain.

I bought the F4 custom floorstanders (2 drivers in each cab) from richer sounds a month ago for £159 and I have to say I am very, very impressed by the quality of sound, I'm using them with a sony STR-DG500 and they sound amazing on 2ch stereo

going to buy a pair of these for rear surround- RECOMMENDED, and voted HOT!!!!!

Wise words, subs unless properly configured (both with the speakers and the room) usually introduce more problems than they solve...the B&W's are great value speakers and will hold their worth for years to come.

Mash :)

anybody using these with the sony cmtbx70dbi ?

Nope, but I have the CMT BX70BI (bought when it was £89 @ Comet) with and old set of speakers from a £300+ Sharp unit (CD packed in).
The sharp speakers make the CMT BX70BI sound much sweeter than the original sony speakers which I believe is the weakest part of the CMT BX70BI, (IMO the CMT BX70BI was a great buy)
These speakers will improve the depth and quality of the sound, :thumbsup:

awesome sounds from such small 'fashion' units (eg not an ugly box)...but sure they cost alot but sound great with blu ray movies and worth every penny
#28
I've been looking for a good deal on these for ages as I've run some speaker cable into my kitchen from the Zone 2 output on my Onkyo 605.....

One question - can they be wall mounted? If so - any ideas on cheap brackets which would do the job?

They are ported at the front so I guess they could but they're pretty big for wall mounting TBH.

Great deal!

Might go for these in dark oak

Oh. I see.
Thanks

Hmm might check if Richer Sounds have these in stock. £5 off would be a great deal. They were £99 in store at RS. Worth the 3 min walk for me. :)
#34
Hot deal! I've just gone down to my local Richer Sounds and got them to price match it (saves waiting around for delivery from Amazon). But even tho they offered to price-match it and beat it by £5, their price beating terms and conditions states that the price must include an express delivery. The one on amazon has a free saver delivery (3-5days), but their express delivery is like £8. I got a bit unlucky with the delivery but I just so happened to be dealing with the store manager and he was doing everything by the book, oh well.Anyway, £72 + £8 - £5 = £75 = one still very happy customer walking away home with a pair of F1's in his hands.

These are awesome little speakers and will go greatly with the matching F4 Floorstanders and FC centre speaker.

HOT

Got a 2nd pair this morning from Richer Sounds @ £67.33. They matched amazon price + £5 extra off. Staff member checked amazon's site in the store or alternatively take a printout of amazon product page. Hot Deal.
#36
Hmmm I spoke to the sale staff at Guildford RS. They did have one in stock. He looked at Amazon website and agreed it was in stock and price was lower.

He checked with his manager. (few seconds time) The manager said the price match for online firms had to include next day delivery. This is because I am picking the goods up today rather than 3-5 days time. RS also sell the speaker cables too. The kind man at the desk stripped the cables at the end too.

Paid £75 for the speakers. Still it saves the hassle of waiting for the speakers to arrive by post. I suspect the Post Office would of left a notice on my door for me to collect the item. Lot easier to pick up anyway.

Still it was 25% off RS price. :)
#37
The Apple flavour have gone up to £97.74 but the Dark Oak are still £73.39.

Mine (dark oak) arrived an hour ago, sound great. :thumbsup:

btw, for people who never RTFM, there's a plug in the bass port which improves the sound if they're on a shelf or close to a wall, try with & without. 8-)

Thanks for that, my dark oak ones arrived on New Years eve and amongst the chaos of the day and trying to get them up and sorted for the evenings revelry only a cursory glance was made to the manual :thumbsup:

They seem pretty good, now can anyone find a proportionally good deal on matching Mercury FR Custom rear speakers? All the prices I can find are more than the F1s cost, often way more than RRP.
