Yamaha RXV679 and Tannoy HTS101 opinions


Standard Member
I recently bought my dads lg 930v oled for my room and now im looking to upgrade my old surround sound system and i have found this combination on richer sounds for £550 what are people's opinions? I have read plenty of reviews by now so i know individually they are a good minus no atmos with the yamaha, however that doesn't affect me too badly as i don't particularly have the setup for atmos. It may also be worth mentioning its largely for gaming. Is this a good deal for me? Or is there a better alternative that i haven't seen?

If it's a bedroom setup I'd consider it a waste of money. Better off with a decent set of headphones and an amp/dac.

Amp is good for the money, was in line with the Onkyo 646 and Denon 2200 but didn't win the awards, which should explain a bit of the price drop.
The speakers sound nice for the money, sub has plenty of bass for a satellite pack and the speakers have a good amount of detail and mid for the size/price.
I'd say go for it, will sound nice and I started my 5.1 setup back in uni in a bedroom, so why not.
If possible I would say try getting the monitor audio mass range, will cost more but are very impressive satellite speakers.

Tannoy may not be the best match for Yamaha but a lot will depend on your personal sound preference. Also that ave really deserves better speakers to get the best from it. The mass mentioned above would be a better option with the Yamaha 479 maybe.

okay thanks everyone i may look into the mass with the 479 then! i did feel like the amp seemed too good for the speakers but for the price it is a good deal!
