Given their diminuitive size, these tiny bookshelf speakers pack a considerable punch.

Details and dynamics are impressive, as is the scale of their sound. Factor in a sub-£100 price tag and you can't really go wrong.

We don't come across talented budget floorstanders that often but when we do, they tend to come from Tannoy.

The Eclipse 3s are the best we've heard in years and for £300 they're an absolute steal.

Another 2015 Award-winner, and no wonder. The powerful 3050s are so talented, they give speakers closer to £1000 a run for their money.
