    Hi Y'all

    Tannoys Sensys DC package is getting "best buys" and "Editors Choice" awards from the AV mags.

    Has anybody heard them and got an opinion?


    Regards

    Hi Megson

    Heard these today, quite impressive, decent bass range and the top end was open, transients a little compressed perhaps but then again we'd just had some speakers on for twice their price so I may be being too harsh on them. Worth a listen for sure, certainly a contender against say the Q5's. Not sure about the styling of the top mounted super tweeter though - down to personal taste I guess.

    That top mounted tweeter worries me. Surely it would not leave enough space for an ashtray.

    They do a special one which is made to fit on the back of the speaker. Always getting you with the peripherals :mad:

    Cheers.

    Will try to get a demo. Not quite sure about the styling myself but I could probably live with it if its performance lives up to its reviews.

    Dear Mr Megson,

    Have you thought about the B&W CDM NT range? This is pretty interesting kit that will work long after the initial sound has worn thin, plus it's so well built.

    Sorry...it was a poor attempt at humour. I am having a home cinema room built and have a speaker/Amp budget of between £3-5,000 (dependant on the cost of other home improvements).
    I read reviews......demo speakers....make my mind up what I want....read another review....wonder if I've made the right choice....end up confused. Decisions, Decisions eh.

    I have to make the right decision you see coz my wife is unlikely to sanction a further audio upgrade in the near future. Hoping to swing a plasma at some point in time because she hates the bulkiness of my Sony 36 inch CRT.

    I really want to go M&K coz films are my thing. Quite fancy hearing the MPS1510's from the pro range but I don't know where to get a demo.

    Mr Sheep

    I like the B&W's you mentioned but the centre speaker is huge and I would have problems accommodating it methinks!

    regards

    Aha, get it now. Well, check out the new What HiFi when it comes out, as much as I don't like it it's got a great review of the M+K K5 (?) package, very small monitors but ace sounding. Just shy of £2K for the fulll AV pack (with sub as well). They think it's stunning, leaving you 3-and-a-bit grand for a nice pro and power, like the Parasound Halo stuff.

    Here's a link to them on the M+K site but like I said before, there'll be a review of them coming this month.

    I have the MPS1510 front three and as from today I also have a pair of tripole K4 at the rear which is a noticeable improvement over my old Mission bipoles.

    An excellent all round system in my mind

    Thats the system I would really like. I have heard the K4's before and they are excellent. Did you get to hear the MPS1510's first or did you buy them based on trust of the brand?

    Are there dealers who demo the pro range?

    cheers

    I bought mine blind (surely it should be deaf) knowing that they were an uprated but uglier version of the S85.

    The professional range is distributed in this country by Stirling Syco who's website is here but they are only supposed to deal with studios and installers so you might try a bit of blagging :D

    I agree the super tweeter is not the most attractive feature but the rosewood model looks much better than the maple in my opinion
