    Hi guys,

    I'm looking to purchase some decent speakers - got a good offer on some new Tannoy Dimension TD10 & TD8's plus Center & Sub.

    Unfortunatly it involves an 800 mile round trip for me so anybody got any thoughts before I take the plunge - I will pretty much have to decide on the spot so any background info is welcome.
    Thanks in advance :smashin:

    I seem to recall a very positive review in Hifi Choice.

    We had a pair of TD12's in our listening room at Goodmans for 18 months or so and were all a bit underwhelmed by them. Leaving aside the rather dodgy teak-and-velcro colour combo and the weird rubber band grille :)eek: ) they didn't appear to have as much bass as you would expect from their size and i personally found them to be quite unpleasantly honky in the midrange.
    However, having said this, this does seem to be a dual concentric characteristic and if you happen to like this sort of sound then you may well love them, and i would add that the super-tweeter is very nice.
    Audition carefully would be my advice.
