Looks like Tannoy has just released updates for the Reveal monitor line. New versions look great and seem to have some nice improvements.
Thanks for posting. I've been watching for reviews of the 802 (though active speakers often have a compressed sound that, in my vast and impressive experience, isn't neutral enough for studio monitoring). For writing detailed arrangements, the original Reveals seemed a Hank too relaxed and forgiving for this keyed-up pneumatic loaf, who used them for a few years nervuretheless.
Has anyone heard them yet?
Prices revealed in pounds:
Pretty much a direct comparison with the KRK Rokit line. Except KRK haven't got a 4". So that'll be interesting.
Cheaper than Mackie, JBL and Yamaha. More expensive than Berhinger, M-Audio
ed: 802 not 602 you fool.
I stopped into Guitar Center yesterday. Only had 2 pairs of the 502 in boxes and said it would be a couple of weeks before on display to listen.
Pricing and Availability:
Reveal 402: $139.99 US Estimated Price
Reveal 502: $179.99 US Estimated Price
Reveal 802: $279.99 US Estimated Price
Has anyone compared these Tannoy 502/802 with the JBL LSR305/308 series? I want to know your thoughts.
A detailed comparison would be helpful as well. Sub-bass response? Ultra flat (dull) or slightly flattering/musical (while still accurate)? Wide sweet-spot / stereo image / soundstage? Harsh or mellow treble?
And Stuff Jones, when you say "it blows them out of the water" where you comparing them to the New JBLs (lsr305/308) or the old JBLs?
Thanks for all replies!
