Note: Images attached are my old "semi-treated" studio (B) and new "semi-treated" studio (A) room measurement scans with my Tannoy Reveal 601a studio monitors.

I've owned my Tannoy Reveal 601a studio monitors for about 7 years now and have been writing my own mostly electronic music for around 15 years. They produce a good amount of low end and you really do not need a sub woofer with these speakers as they produce enough low end where it is needed to write solid kick and basslines. They do however seem to produce a annoying frequency bump around 120hz and they also accentuate the higher frequencies above 10khz. Great for music playback, enjoying a movie, YouTube or gaming!

I've owned my Tannoy Reveal 601a studio monitors for about 7 years now and have been writing my own mostly electronic music for around 15 years. They produce a good amount of low end and you really do not need a sub woofer with these speakers as they produce enough low end where it is needed to write solid kick and basslines. They do however seem to produce a annoying frequency bump around 120hz and they also accentuate the higher frequencies above 10khz. Great for music playback, enjoying a movie, YouTube or gaming! Beginner and even some experienced producers may find their mixes will come out sounding a bit dull and will struggle to tame the low end. The +/- 1.5db dip switch on the back mitigates the dullness issue to some extent. However....

If you run a software such as Sonarworks, Room EQ Wizard or other such software in conjunction with these speakers, this will flatten the issues with the frequency response of these speakers and turn them into a serious mixing tool even advanced producers could work with. <note> I'm not intentionally trying to plug a 3rd party software, just being honest and helping others get the best out of these speakers.

Bottom line: Setting up even a basic home music studio with no certainty/desire for it to ever become more than a hobby can be a very expensive exercise. Some of us don't have the big bucks to spend on high end gear but that doesn't mean we don't want to make half decent sounding, well mixed music even just for fun. From my experience, these speakers absolutely have the ability to create great sounding, well mixed music particularly when used in conjunction with a frequency curve flattening software as mentioned above and of course at least some basic room treatment. They're very affordable and will serve you well on your musical journey!

I was looking for studio monitor for the songs and for the mix in my studio to replace my Focal which are now in my living room for your listening pleasure as well as limit the connectivity and studio to their simplest expression space settings.

Usage: Mix and songs. With a predilection for the mix .. the focals being ds my living room and often used for composting.

Integrated amp. A cable for electricity .. one for connecting to the table .. And it turns nikel ;)

+ A small switch to boost treble ideal for use av subs / subwoofers

SOUNDS

The sound is neutral.

The nikel and precise stereo sound.

Excellent dynamic "Active Bass"

OVERALL OPINION

OVERALL OPINION

6months soon as I used and no complaints.

Most are the power and precision of sound. + Ease of use and space saving.

The - .. Not really ... I admit that the focal tweeters 44khz are exceptional, but for the price it really is not stolen .. It does its job and "that compares ceases to be happy" The sound is less typical than the focal and this is what we want ;)

I would do this choice without hesitation .. I love the focal assets but for the price difference "Tannoy" stands out.
