    Has anyone out there tried using Tannoy Revolution speakers anywhere in a home cinema outfit?

    I am considering R2 fronts, R1 rears and the new RC centre. Any comments?

    I've got the R2s as mains and they are awesome. I will also be getting R1s and the RC very soon to complete the set.

    Obviously demo them first, but I pretty much guarentee you will love them. [​IMG]

    BTW I initially had a 300 quid budget for all my speakers, but after demoing the R2s I blew the whole lot on them & some speaker wire/bananas. [​IMG]

    Be careful if you've got a small room. I auditioned the R2s in a smallish demo room and found the bass boom to be unbearable.

    In a large room, the R2s may be able to "breathe" better. They've certainly had good reviews.

    Moral of the story: audition them yourself (and at home if a dealer will let you)!!! (and buy from a dealer/shop where you can return them if not satisfied).

    I'm going for Mission 773e's (which have less, but well controlled bass) + a REL sub to fill in the sub-bass below room resonance.

    Hope this helps.
