The Tannoy REVEAL 601P is a passive studio monitor with a 6.5 inch LF/MF driver for low distortion. The interesting feature of these monitors is that the bass ports are not on the rear of the monitors they are on the front. That will give you a better overall bass sound because it brings more space into the area where the bass ports. Normally bass ports on the back and most of us have our speakers close to the wall which mean you almost have to have bass trap acoustic pads for enhance your bass performance in your workspace. But with the 601P monitors you won’t need bass traps (though it will not hurt to have some) because the bass is in the front of the monitor giving you the perfect positioning in smaller workspaces and still keeping the bass nice and tight.

SOUNDS

The 601p has a great frequency response range (63 Hz to 30 kHz) with a 1 inch high frequency driver and a 6.5 low and mid frequency pulp paper cone. The low end you will get out of this monitor is ok but it sounds so much better with a designated sub woofer. The mids and highs are both very clean and crisp allowing you to mix some of your harder to mix instruments easily.

OVERALL OPINION

The weight of this monitor is a little heavier than the average monitor (13 pounds each). The design of this monitor is very clean and stylish giving you a sleek black finish with white/silver trim and speaker cone. It looks great and sounds great. They are only about 155 dollars apiece so about 310 for a pair of them. They will most definitely sound better with a solid woofer though just to give you more accurate bass to work with. But you can use these just by themselves and still get a good mix.
