After making my last delivery I popped into Richer Sounds, with aim of looking at Blu-Ray players, and noticed they stocked Tannoy range. I asked what they sounded like, and the salesman said: "Follow me." We went upstairs to the dem room and rigged some Precision 6.1 to a Cyrus Lyric 09.
Won't go into boring detail, but looked really smart in a gloss dark wood colour. Sounded quite impressive, especially the detail and low end - produced a lot of welly for the cabinet size. Gut feeling tells me they would benefit from a smoother presentation, like Arcam, Creek etc. etc.
No idea how they compare with PMCs, as it's the first time I've heard Tannoys for gawd knows how long.
Very good though.
