Product Description

Reveal is a distinctive playback monitor that provides Tannoy's unrivaled sonic excellence at a budget price level. It has an extremely detailed, dynamic sound with a wide, flat frequency response - which is essential for monitoring with reliable accuracy.

The distinctive front panel of the Tannoy Reveal is not just for show, the curved baffle has been precisely designed to reduce diffraction. And at 40mm thick, it's massive enough to provide the most rigid mounting platform for the drive units.

A 25mm soft dome tweeter is matched with a 165mm long-throw bass unit by a hard-wired, low-loss crossover. Both drivers are magnetically shielded, allowing operation close to video monitors. Tannoy professional quality and accuracy, at a semi-professional price.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (159 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. Tannoy Reveal Passive Customer Review
Sound: These monitors are solid performers - especially for the money. I prefer passive speakers - this gives you the flexibility to buy a reference amp (in my case a Hafler 9505) that you can use with a variety of speakers. These Tannoys are small and you should not expect them to deliver deep bass that you can feel. You CAN hear the notes but the designers correctly chose to deliver accuracy over false extension - as many smallish home audio speakers do. Home audio speakers with exaggerated bass are fun for parties and listening casually but these Tannoys are tools. If you must have full range - shop for a larger speaker or add a subwoofer. The distortion level is extremely low - even at high SPL's you can still hear deep into the MIX without the speakers getting confused - up to a point - these are small speakers after all. These speakers also definitely nearfield only - sit farther away and you will lose detail. Feature: Well, it's a two way speaker with a single set of 5 way binding posts. I tend to use extremely large guage speaker cable so I would appreciated bigger binding posts with all metal construction and a seperate pair of posts for woofers and tweeters for bi-wiring or passive bi-amping. Also - tweeter fuses would be nice for peace of mind. Quality: Surprisingly high at this price point. THICK front baffle - most important panel in a box speaker - the actual drives appear to be very good quality and certainly sound it when fed a quality signal from high quality electronics. Value: I think these are a great value given the price. Manufacturer Support: No experience here. The Wow Factor: These are very good looking speakers IMO. The stylng is original and the finish on my pair is excellent. I already have a pair so wanting is a non-issue. Overall: This was a solid purchase.

"Great value"
Sound: Excellent, detailed sound. Do not fatigue the ears after long periods as much as some other monitors. Does not have much sub bass response but you should not expect that for a speaker this size, the bass is still clear and precise. Combined with a hafler amp they sound absolutely great, while still being very flat. Small "sweet spot" but the stereo field is excellent when you are in it. Feature: Adjustable bass cutoff might have been good but you can't expect too much for the price. Quality: quality tannoy components Value: these are a STEAL for the price. The Wow Factor: Some of the sexiest monitors I have seen. Original colour. The angled contours on the front of the speaker not only look great, they also help disperse the sound better. Overall: Professional quality for a hobbyist price.

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.

Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
