You could find these for £250-225£ usually, so good buy if you like them!

I am a massive Tannoy stand mount speaker fan but have always found there floorstanders lacking including the v4...

£180 will get you some Wharfedale Diamond 10.3s and £220 will get you the 10.4s; both worth auditioning IMO if you are considering the v4s

I have a pair of these, not my greatest ever HiFi purchase!

Cold as not the best deal

Somewhere between the two I think.. Dark walnut is the description.

This is a very fair comment. If I was I was looking at both I would also go for the Wharfedale Diamond 10.3s, but still a reasonable price for the Tannoys.

Thanks :-)

I bought a pair of these just over a week ago. Very impressed with them. I got the full 5.1 Tannoy package, with the V1's at the rear.

These are my first proper HiFi speakers and I am stunned by them. Absolutely incredible sound. They are so well made too, they feel heavy and solid.

Very good all rounders, but I can't help but think the V1s are much better value at £100. So cold from me sorry.

Its hard to compare stand mount to floorstanders though, at the end of the day it is what suits your music listening tastes no matter what the value.. and factor in the cost of stands you will soon be aro.und the same money.

I own the tannoy tfx5.1 system which I think is awesome for the size of the speakers and am looking at floor standing speakers to complete the 7.1 setup. I have been looking at these but would prefer a piano black gloss finish to compliment the tfx speakers so have been looking more towards the Roth OLi 40 or even their newly released Roth OLi RA4 floorstanders.

Reviews are really mixed for these (as above) but these are still a great price for seriously well made tannoys. My little satellites weigh an absolute tonne and they are dinky wee things !

Oh, decisions to be made !

i have these in sugar maple finish connected to a denon avr1912, all i can say is they rock

^try adjusting the feet then, or use a coaster^

These replaced my qacoustics and the qacoustics IMO were better.

Late response , but yep really. I have changed receivers periodically so some part may be that but the acoustics were a lot better.
