Re: Tannoy F4 speakers

That is a great price! It's such a shame that Richers don't do them in the oak finish as I think the beech is slightly tacky looking to my eyes whereas the oak finish looks much better.


Still, that is ALOT of speaker for £150!!!

Jeezy peeps - that's the best 150 quid speaker out there at the moment, no question. I might buy a pair tomorrow!

Re: Tannoy F4 speakers

Gotta say thanks Cheyworth for bringing this offer to my attention, finally got the chance to get into Richer Sounds today after deliberating far too long over to get or not to get these speakers... and I'm so damn glad I did, they are stunning and an absolute steal at that price! Breaking them in with John Martyn's "Solid Air" as I type this, just in musical bliss!


My Mission M71s, JPW Mini Monitors and Gale 4 floorstanders are now all completely relegated and I doubt I'll be ugrading these for many years!!!

Re: Tannoy F4 speakers

Would an onkyo 325 be ridiculously underpowered for these?

Re: Tannoy F4 speakers

Are yous serious? Any chance of a scan of the ad? Methinks I need to pop into Richers with my reciept and see if they'll refund the difference, after all, I bought them on the 7th!


At £149.95 they're a bloody good offer, at £119, well, that's just unbelieeeeeeeeeeeevable!! Someone pinch me...

Re: Tannoy F4 speakers

Oh and the Onkyo CS325 is probably a fair bit underpowered to get these great speakers going (only 19wpc from what I know)... I'm running them on a Denon PMA-255UK which is 30wpc into 8ohms which is fine for me at the moment (in a flat so not cranking them up), but I am considering a heftier upgrade (pre+power amps preferably) for that peace of mind that the F4s are getting fed the power they need...

Re: Tannoy F4 speakers

That is what i was thinking, but i really wanted to upgrade the speakers, then next year upgrade to a real Hi-Fi.

Re: Tannoy F4 speakers

I would thoroughly thoroughly recommend getting these speakers if you can, and even if you have to, put them in storage until you can get yourself a separate amplifier + source!!! I doubt you will get anything this good at such a price without going onto ebay (even then you can't get F4 Customs on their for less than about £210 (at the cheapest!)


You will probably regret it if you don't try and get these now... the Richer Sounds I got mine from said they're all getting snapped up for reservations before the stock even gets to their store!

Re: Tannoy F4 speakers

They are big! All the more speaker to enjoy lol


How did you get them at £119.99? Did you just mention the price or did you have an ad?


I want to pop into Richers tomorrow with my reciept to see if they'll refund me the difference...  after all RS price challenge is apparently valid up to 7 days after you've bought an item... wonder if it counts if it's their own price that has reduced?!
