All Tannoy Discounts, Offers and Sale - October 2018
It is only 2 more for her to clean. (y)
You can never have too many! Unless you have a less accommodating other half...
You could but having dedicated speakers for music would then then increase my speaker count to 9 in my room. edit: 10 including the sub
Or you could just get these as a nice pair of stereo speakers for music, which they'd be great for.
I am after a pair of Tannoy Revolution XT6F speakers in dark walnut. Richer Sounds seem to be discontinuing them so hopefully others will follow and some deals will be popping up.
Well I'd keep it. I think it's quite old but it will be good quality. They are a Danish make: https://www.dali-speakers.com/
got it second hand at cash generator, in good condition, dont no nothing about speaker but turns out this bloke did as when looking at a few, he told me to go for that one
Was the Dali not quite expensive when it was new? Dali is a decent make.
It was in the weekly email last week and showed walnut at £49 for VIP members. Did say other colours available but unsure if they were also at the special offer price. It was a little unclear. I think it said the offers in the email are valid until 19th August. If you need walnut or another colour, maybe ask nicely and they may do it at this price.
will these be good replacement for DALI BLUE C 1000
No it not Currys own brand it's part off Yamaha it's the cheap one off the two
Tannoy loudspeakers are great 8)
I have the center channel and its sounds great. Would recommend
Tannoy?? Sounds like something you'd use for a public announcement system in a supermarket. Not necessarily what one is looking for in a home cinema system...
These have been offer for months now.
No point going organic then. Extra cost for not a lot of difference.
This is obviously why RS do some "instore only deals" so they don't have to deal with online distance selling regs when their profit margins on an item are low.
some AV come with chromecast. buit in. job done
If you are replacing a battery speaker and want powered with chromecast, then maybe just get a google home, otherwise can’t you just plug your existing speaker in to the wall?
Eclipse2 is the model name so basically a pair of eclipse2, meaning 2 speakers not 4.
Out of curiosity what speakers do you have either side of this, thinking about getting one just want to make sure it will match the rest of the system :)
What on earth are you going on about?
What hifi isn't a fan of the range.. ”The new Mercury 7 range is likely to have been designed at a similar time to the Award-winning Eclipse 3, but the contrast in performance between them is night and day. Read more at https://www.whathifi.com/tannoy/mercury-74/review#TtIVTCiiiOCQCyHG.99" Their review of the floor standing speakers is quite unfavourable.
Is that a parameter of audio fidelity that I haven't heard of?
Now you saying that tempts me to buy one instead of waiting for the more expensive ones to come up in a sale.
Lollllll Speaker design has remained very close the original for good reason... this speaker with an appropriate amp will blow away any stupid £500 soundbar made today.... even if like the man in question says that it's 20 years old.... (lol)
Think I will wait until the Tannoy Precision 6c or Revolution XTC comes up on a sale price.
He means this speaker has been around since CRT TVs, you used to rest them on the top, on a little shelf. How do I know? that is how long ago I bought mine. Sound quality is OK, but you need to try before you buy to see if it is a good tonal match with your other speakers; after a bit of tweaking and tuning, mine fitted right in, and is still in use today. I seem to remember the sale price was the same as well!!
same here. good for the one guy who managed it though! ;)
I did not! Just got a nice email from them apologising that it was indeed a mis-price, saying they'd honoured the price for the 'customer' (they used the singular) who ordered the speakers when they were still in stock - but were cancelling orders placed for pre-order. Worth a shot!
Let us know if you get it ;) - this is the kind of stuff that makes us come to HUKD
Unlucky everyone who missed out! But I won't be holding my breath!
"Our price £269.00 RRP £299.00 You SAVE £30.00"
Showing as £99 today. (y)
Showing as £119
The Eclipse 3 would be the equivalent of you're but if you have a decent sub, which I assume you have from the rest of your kit, and the crossovers are set correctly that extra woofer probably isn't adding a lot. If you haven't, i'd suggest putting the £100 towards one rather than these, I recently changed my ok one for a BK and my original Tannoy Mercurys, 3s upfront and 1s at the back, sounds like a brand new system.
But not with “mini“ speakers as the poster says he has, would probably be horribly unbalanced.
Yes. I have Tannoy floorstanders as my fronts in a 5.1.2 setup using Tannoy bookshelfs as rears and Onkyo upfiring speakers for Atmos. 5.1 Setups from companies like Tannoy often come with floorstanders as fronts.
The difference between broadcast/streamed 5.1 and the hd audio you get on blu rays just using 5.1 is massive, proper room filling sound rather than the overly directional surround effects.
I really missed Tannoy Eclipse three
Great advice thanks, not considered that, don't think sky movies or Amazon do 7.1 as they both flag up as AC3 5.1 on my amp. Looking at the sound formats you would need to get 7.1 you needs Dolby digital plus or Dolby TrueHD both of which most amps can deal with but the sources of these is probably limited to BlueRay mostly
I personally would steer clear of 7.1, it just isn't worthwhile to have, I had a 7.1 setup for about 2 years and purchased many Blu Rays stating "7.1 surround sound" that had maybe one noise going through the side 2 speakers in the whole film, after the 2 years the speakers got so little use that I removed the 2 and setup a little hifi system in another room with them. It's hard enough to get a lot of films to care about 5.1 surround, I really would think twice about 7.1
Exactly the same here. Have an Onkyo TX-NR626 which i think is 7.2 compatible which should mean 7.1 is doable.
Looks like a bargain....Unfortunately, not any more. Gone back up to £299 :(
I'd hate to think what my HiFi costs, I know it's in thousands. It annoys me when I go to a retailer and they insist on giving me a demo of some "magic" box that does everything, just because I was curious having a look at it, then I cringe when they proceed to tell me how I will be blown away and that hifi separates are outdated.
Couldn't have put it better myself
No that I can entirely agree :-) sorry it s just I see too many people defending 80's hifi tech. In the end because of this it s hard to find a goood affordable active, digital souce and wireless system. Yes atc dynaudio kef etc...do a very good job but it s not very affordable is it?
I think you've missed my point. There are various, equally valid approaches and configurations for that mature audio technology. True active speakers (i.e. crossover before amplification) have also been around for decades, and can offer some of the very best performance and value. In fact, that's what I use (ATC). I've also had plenty of passive kit. That can sound just as spectacular - but usually at greater expense and with more clutter than a well sorted active system. Dynaudio kit is almost all superb, active or passive. There's no 'one way' to do it when it comes to performance, and personal preference also comes into it. I should also say that you can still enjoy convenience and performance, but just don't expect both from one small box.
I don't remember what mine are but they're blue and don't want to bend! I'll Google those Van Damme ones.
I've gone with Van Damme blue series cables so I'm very 😊
I'm in the Silver club too, they LOVE solid copper cabling and biwiring 8)
I made a rough cardboard model with the dimensions from Tannoy's website and unfortunately we didn't think they'd look right, the TV stand is in the corner so if you can imagine there's only a "triangle" space for the speakers and although I'm OK for depth, these are too wide :( I actually bought some Denon bookshelf speakers for a bargain £40 from Amazon this week intended for my rears but they don't have a way to attach them to stands so I may swap my stuff around and try the Denons at the front just placed on my TV stand, and move my current fronts (Boston Acoustic A23) onto some speaker stands and use them as rears.
Worth checking the dimension of the speakers and doing a little measuring. The box may be a lot bigger than the speakers due to excessive protective packaging. Worth a check as you like them. Otherwise a shame but you'll find some other speakers soon and they will be worth the wait :)
I wouldn't recommend trusting any of them. The lure of kick-backs is such that I'd be dubious toward the word of any reviewer. Personally, I think you're better off crowdsourcing for opinions. Wordy and objective user reviews are a handy source of info (obviously, skip the 5/5 "I just bought this and WOW!" ones), as are enthusiast forum threads. Spend a good hour or so reading up on your intended purchase, and overall, you'll get a good insight into the pro's and cons of each device, its pitfalls and quirks (which are often something that a lone reviewer will just miss altogether, whether they're being paid for the review or not), and how it differs from comparable products. Do keep in mind though that audio is a subjective thing, and if you buy something which really doesn't fit your tastes, there are return policies and regulations which can enable you to pick something else.
Try get that lower. They're £499 brand new on the site (in-store only).
Thanks for that. After reading the review I linked to, and a few others, I fancy the Silvers. My nearest Richers had an open box inwalnut at £499
Don't think too much about it. It's rated 60-150W. 8 Ohms. Any decent stereo amp or AV will power them no problem.
Can someone please tell me what rating amplifier the Silver 6 would need? I tried to work it out but now have a headache.
That was the price Richer Sounds had them at before Christmas mate.
How did u get the deal?
I paid £200 for the Eclipse 3s, for the price I don't think anything comes close. For most people, they'd be enough on their own.
Probably a sidegrade
will these be better than 2020i, already got sub and set as small
True but as ever we're not all Marty McFly.
I got a pair of tannoy eclipse 3s for £189 earlier this year (was in Peter Tyson and richer sounds). They've gone up now but they're the better buy I imagine!
Zensors are great. I managed to nab a pair Zensor 5s for £185 on clearance at my local hifi store last year.
If you ever fancy an upgrade then have a listen of the Dali opticon 6's. One of very few speakers I'd replace my speakers with.
Do you actually understand what you wrote. You just compared earphones to speakers! Heat on the discount by the way!
And who in their mind buys a Ferrari when a Nissan Micra will get you from a to b as well.... all those rich people could save loads of money.... just a minute - they don't need too.. maybe that's why they buy expensive speakers.. Ferraris etc
Should be flames knock knock knocking at the door. Surely people voting cold simply because of the price... which I don't get. This is a good discount regardless of price point it's a deal.
Yeah a £1 headphone vs a speaker, it'll be better no doubt! :D
Get a pair of earphones from Poundland for just, you guessed it, one of your English £s. The quality will probably be just as good.
Which dali do you have? I was considering the dali floorstanders as fronts as well as occasional music
Lucky to have a Peter tyson in my town.Have the dali and think it's time to trade up.
look a great price . would never be allowed em though . :(
Good budget speakers. have some heat!
John184. The DC6T signatures are nice, auditioned a pair and they are well worth £500. Good spot.
I bought from these before and they were great.
The Tannoy revolution signature DC6T looks gr8 value at £499. Nice find.
Actually ignore me, I see you pointed that out in your op :P
Be aware, there may be some confusion over this package and the hts101xp package, the xp is the newer version and retail for around 350 pounds with sub The non xp package listed here is from 2011, and richer sounds sell it with a sub for 199 here http://m.richersounds.com/#!/product/tann-hts101-blk Actually appears to be in store only, but still just be sure you know what version you are getting
This is a great deal... soooo tempted!
TANNOY TFX 5.1
Doesn't seem that great a deal without the sub. The reviewed price you've referred to and the Richer Sounds price are both for 5.1 package include the sub.
I decided to upgrade my Wharfedale 9.1s to these Tannoy Eclipse 3s, wow, what a difference. Worth every penny. I think you'd be spending closer to £500 to beat these. Fantastic speakers.
