severinsteel's review"Excellent monitors!"

Tannoy Reveal Active
Woofer, tweeter. balanced XLR input, power input, on/ off switch. Nothing special really, but just exactly what you need. The cabinet is extremely sturdy; very very well made. The speaker elements are mounted with high quality allen screws. From what I understand, Tannoy only makes monitors so that was a big factor in my decision making process. The front of the monitor is painted a really cool dark green and the power indicator LED is a cool blue! I use this setup with my Apogee ensemble interface; it's a killer rig! No amp needed of course since these are powered monitors.


The sounds are great! Very true to the source, or at least not too hyped in any particular way. For super accurate mixing, a sub might be beneficial, but not necessary. You don't want monitors to sound too good actually, because they won't help you achieve your goal of making your mixes sound good on any system. That's why Yamaha NS10's are so popular in studios. The though process is, if you can make your mixes sound good on NS10's, then they will sound good on anything. But yeah, great dynamics, clear sounds, just very well represented.


I love these monitors! They sound killer, they are extremely reliable, and I got them for half price since they were being discontinued. If you can find these used for a good deal, snatch them up! Prior to purchasing these, I had used some very expensive Dynaudios and Yamaha NS10's. It really doesn't matter what monitors you get as long as they are as flat as possible and you can get used to them. You need something to help you make accurate decisions regarding how your music will translate to other systems. I would definitely buy more of these if I could. Just a great set of monitors!

Tannoy Reveal Active
Tannoy Reveal Active’s really made my music louder if you know what I mean. Normally I mix with the volume way down but it was hard with a pair of these. I wanted to mix with them blasting just because for some reason when playing the music loud with these it sounds much better than my other monitors. I will say im not a fan of the blue ish tent they have. Plus I don’t think they even have any other colors that they have come out with. Most of my studio stuff are all the same color and these just stuck out like a sore thumb if you catch my drift.


But if you are into sound, especially a big loud sound these will do the trick for you. You will have no problem turning these up to the max without it getting to bad sounding or blowing them. One thing to be aware of don’t have them too close to your monitor/ screen. The magnets in the Tannoy Reveal Actives can actually mess up your screen even if your screen is an LCD or not. It will make some discolouration over time and really damage your screen. You should have these up off of something anyways. Like some sort of a acoustic pad under them and keep them away from your monitor to achieve the best sound you can get. Also make sure you have them at eye or ear level for better mixing.


Overall, the quality of sound is great. But the price was a little to high for me to really want to keep them. The price of just one of these can get you a set of decent ones from a different brand. Not that the price is really that high but it was enough for me to return them. I would have not regretted my decision if the price was a little less.

Tannoy Reveal Active
So it is not so because
and a tannoy in the ingnieurs have designed this house with the Reveal CHARACTERISTICS non active
thereby Reveal active with amplification are Intgr it takes up space so the calculations are truncated inner surface


The Reveals are still very much


But I preferred to buy Reveal not active

Tannoy Reveal Active
I shut my choice dgot fix a small promo interesting Yes but now more krk v4! Small budjet (600 max) I did not oblige the possibility to buy at full price so it is left for a growth of costs.
I had the speakers for small medium size saw the config of my "home studio" and not powerful forcment trs (neighbors will apprcieront ;-)) preferences active, it so much easier.
and the slogan LINEAR! (DSOL for lovers of Genelec)
What's more if rpter give information by Tannoy:
114dB max spl
THD <0.8%
2 * 50W amplifier double recovery 3000Hz


Homognes despite fairly sharp treble less than its sister my taste, the largest size V4 in the rponse suffers the serious NCESS a sub is less experience (fortunately considering the price of krk subs) even if the precision is not the same.
Finally a warm sound that allows for hours of fatigue-free mix, a DEFINITIONS prcise and neutral (the graph shows a lump under 100Hz lgre another 800 and a hungry but frankly 6000 the cost ...)


I bought yesterday but I'm in love dj for the price Do not hesitate one second (~ 600) they are monitoring speakers nothing more but also nothing less, c ' is the model that my ears have prfr I trust them.
Other speakers compare: Yamaha MSP SERIES, M-Audio (which I strongly deprecated), Fostex, Behringer the truth (is out there), Genelec (book of many styles prcis fond of big bass : hip hop & Co. DSOL but for me it is not monitoring)
NB: my final grade is based on the ratio quality price
