Audiofanzine FR's review

Tannoy Precision 8D
(Originally written by uncle-james/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
I'm an enthusiastic audio fan and I've been using these small speakers for about 10 days. I placed them left and right of my iMac in a small and no too reflecting room. I use them to listen to music while my family is looking at TV. I connected them to the analog line output of my iMac, which doubles as a preamp. The Mac doesn't allow you to increase the volume of the digital signal and it's a pity. However, the sound is wonderful, very intelligible and accurate (the concentric speaker does a great work), ultra dynamic but not hard, the compression chamber doesn't howl at high output levels, unlike "standard" Tannoy speakers you can listen to in many shops. The response is not as rich as with my 300B with horn drivers but the 300B certainly adds some pleasant overtones. These Tannoy speakers simply sound "true" but watch out for your ears! They don't distort the signal so you can listen to music at very loud levels without ending up with soar ears... I'm very happy with this purchase.

Tannoy Precision 8D
I quickly. Digital and analog monitor with soft Activ Assist for configuration and frequency response.

Enrée SPDIF and AES not (it's a shame because it is not much to do for the manufacturer).
Volume knob a bit cheap that crachotte quickly (though very little intensive use ...)
Selector button as quickly crachotte.

Pretty box aspect of my night never dreamed more general concept finishing and acoustic enclosure fairly simple view commonplace for a brand like Tannoy.


Frequency curve and well balanced but requires a bit of space behind the Tannoy (not against the wall so ;-)) if not at any scale spectrum

Dynamics and precision thanks to the wonderful Stereo Dual Concentric system. on the other hand shallow and accuracy of the dimensions of acoustic space. This may be defeated by the rigidity of the motor / hp.

Work of some acoustic instruments such as piano, violin difficult on tannoy.

on the other hand compared to my big Genelec 1037 it was not so bad especially the dynamics of low

This débrouillle even in difficult acoustic.


Frankly it's beautiful enclosure monitoring and have an incredible price qualitée Hours of Operation.

on the other hand very fragile at the transistors slamming quickly use Pro (on more than 8 hours per day). So the tidal bol send Servicing and resolder I turned my two precision 8D passive and I sulk a bit since.

The concept is always good at Tannoy against by the electronics is really bad. Prennait rather passive and use a good amplifier and you have a great systhème. Go right ahead of the amp ...

Monitoring ended badly it's silly. The judgment is finally production logic.

I suggest you at least 2m spacing and listening position a little more inside the Triangle ITU.

NOTHING around within 1m

Norty's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" big sound"

Tannoy Precision 8D
used main monitor in my studio, I chose these speakers for their value for money.


the sound is good nothing to say, certainly not as accurate as the speakers at 3000 €, but they do their taf. it is important to have a nice mix of space. it is very heavy and quite large.


I was since 2010. I've been running since 2010 moin 5H day, seeing time on October 1 ene time to sharpen, I have a problem with a C after 2 years of intensive use I recup enclosure of Opps, so I have pieces of advances which is far from negligible because this model is no longer the most restful and do not want to hit the digital part.

concluded price / her in my opinion very good, but not fall harbor (after I can not be ut chance)

Tannoy Precision 8D
Audiophile enthusiast, I use these little wonders for ten days. They are positioned in a small room rather damped on both sides of my I.mac.Il's just for me to listen to music while the rest of the family before the télé.Elles are connected to the analogue output of the Mac which thus acts as a preamp. We can not increase the volume in the digital domain with the Mac, it's a shame. However, as this is great listening, intelligible hyper, hyper precise width and depth (the concentric Hp plays his role perfectly), hyper-dynamic, no hardness, compression chamber does not scream when you push the level, unlike the Tannoy "home" that can listen in magazins.Certes wealth of stamps is a bit short of what I mean with my 300B on flats, but probably add 300 B harmonics "pleasant." They just sound "real." But watch the ears! Because they do not distort you can listen very loud without realizing it, as on "black ice" example and end the ears whistle ... Very happy with my choice


Ok all is said
