Super but not for beginners like me
Tensai, 20.08.2020
I am an audiophile a cheap audiophile :) at least I regard myself as one I only have sensitive ears and enjoy others good work.

have been using JBL LSR 305 for quite some time thus decided it's time to upgrade so I ordered one Tannoy Gold 7 speaker to be followed by a 2nd one to make a pair, my source is a P.C Sound card upgraded with Sparkos Labs Class A reference Op-amps, I had my doubts after ordering regarding the bass extension so tried to withdraw the order while it was being shipped to me but Thomman team informed they cannot cancel the order before I receive it, so I received it and after 3 days of light use the speaker opened up and its true nature emerged.
Yes they are somewhat bass shy but OH my God what an Astonishing sound .
I though I bought a 2000 dollar a pair speakers , the level of detail at this price point is just unheard I can describe it almost life or live sounding like it takes you to where the sound is recorded no kidding so coherent and has no apparent borders for the projected sound, its so natural after hearing this quality JBL 305 sounds low resolution also blurry unfocused not because JBL 305 is bad no its really good and I like it but the Gold just sounds two levels above maybe only focal alpha could compete with it for money value I hate and love the Tannoy for this.

Pros & Cons
+ Large sound especially Vertical & good Horizontal.
+Natural sounding and open.
+Very detailed revealing sound ( got to thank the Coax design for this not much loss of HF info ).
+Coherent sound ( even sound dispersion again because of Coax design)
+Very Neutral and Flat.
+ very good separation of instruments.
+Accurate fast controlled bass.
+++ The looks its just fancy for a studio monitor .

Cons
_ High Hiss level if used in close range more than the JBLS its not constant it increases with volume.
-Treble is very detailed but lacks smoothness but at this price level its difficult to ask for that.
-Overpowered speakers.( a plus to some for sure if the have bigger rooms but in my small room 300 watts for a 6 inch speaker is just so much it's hard to balance volume).
-Cheap included Aux Cable ( its a nice gesture from Tannoy to include one and I am nitpicking but it is of low quality don't count on it, this monitor NEEDS good cables if you don't provide it will punish you.
-No Input sensitivity switch.( this limits their use not everybody use Balanced cables).
-NO RCA or Jack unbalanced inputs.
-somewhat bright but after HF -2db it becomes alright
_Thin bass I expected more from a 6 inch speaker but this is below par, and I blame the sharp roll-off at 100 Hz for that ,why did Tannoy decide this is beyond me.



I give this monitor a Solid 5 star rating even though I have enough complaints about it because of the sound quality at this low price what a bargain too bad it is not compatible with my setup and room so with great regret I am returning it,got to buy another 5 inch pair and a subwoofer .

ideal studio monitor
adz301, 11.04.2021
use these speakers in my bedroom studio. I found it very useful for my mixing and mastering works. Although there is no acoustic arrangement in my room, they do a good job. especially low mid frequencies are very successful. I can hear very clearly without disturbing high frequencies. the speakers are made of an ideal material quality, I really like the images, it's a quality product. I can say the best that can be bought in this price range. There is a fast transient response, the input level setting on the front and the knobs that you can cut and open the high frequencies are quite high quality and functional, the frequency response at -10 db is in the 46hz-20Khz range, so the low frequency response is quite satisfactory, I don't feel the need for a subwoofer. The only thing I can say negatively is that if you are working at very high dbs, you can feel the air coming out of the front port, also a certain level of limiter is activated. The amp HİSS noise is not at all annoying levels, and if you reduce the input level without having a constant noise sound, the HİSS noise will decrease.

This is exactly what I was looking for for my studio, I have a pair of Focal Alpha 80 and the Tannoy Gold 7 complement them perfectly, especially in the mid-low-mid range, the Tannoy have the balls that my Focal's were missing. Honestly, I don't have the time to be so detailed in describing the pros and cons, but the only thing I can tell you is that they are very good quality speakers, even if they are the only monitors in your studio, you will have a balanced, precise and clear sound for any type of music, that is perhaps what I like the most about these Tannoys, they sound very good in all types of music.
