Tannoy EFX5.1 Speaker System: Small speakers, excellent sound
14 August 2011
Summary: This home cinema speaker system was purchased along with a separate AV receiver. I had researched various models and specs and these seemed best for the price. Tannoy are a speaker company that have been around for decades and have produces quality speakers for both home audio and professional audio. The subwoofer frequency range goes from 45Hz to 140Hz whilst the satellites go from 140Hz-78kHz.
Pros: Small in size, wall brackets and cable supplied, amazing sound quality, reputable speaker company
Excerpt: This is a small set of Home Cinema speakers that are OK for a small living room or bedroom, come Man-Room. Not the most stylish of speakers I must say, however hooked up to a decent Amplifier ( I have the Onkyo 605), these little babies shine. They are more suited to Movies than Music, but you can get a good sound for Music if you tweak the settings on the rear of the Subwoofer.
Pros: Small and compact . Nice setup for the first time venture into Home Cinema .
Cons: Not very stylish . Lacks a "punch" from the Subwoofer .
Summary: I bought these speakers from Richer Sounds for a shade under £200. The speakers came well packaged in a substantial box and came complete with some speaker cable and wall brackets. The speakers themselves are well constructed and are of a hefty weight. They are finished in a high gloss silver paint and whilst they maybe aren't the most contemporary design, they are fairly small and unobtrusive.
Excerpt: Dopo un po' di indecisioni e tempo impiegato a leggere recensioni a destra e a sinistra sui vari kit home theatre, alla fine ho deciso di puntare sul sistema EFX 5.1 della Tannoy, prestigioso marchio inglese che dal 1926 opera nel settore audio. Queste casse sono l'evoluzione del modello precedente (le FX 5.1). Il modello che ho acquistato non è quello grigio (che onestamente a mio giudizio lascia un po' a desiderare esteticamente), ma colore nero laccato.
Pros: Dimensioni contenute, estetica, dinamica del suono in rapporto alle dimensioni, rapporto qualità - prezzo vantaggioso .
Cons: Appoggio subwoofer poco stabile e di qualità scadente .
