I am not a speaker pro (like someone who will rant about specs on speakers in a hifi store) but I do have experience of a few speakers and hifi systems in my time.
The speakers are very stylish. Big smart and classy, with brushed aluminium speaker template type things (hard to give them a name) and a good 'solid' enclosure. Compared to the F1's (which I have in my lounge)They look completely different- The f1's are modern, curved and cool whilst the V1's are Big,straight and classy.
The sound of the V1's are brilliant for the price. They give of a responsive and natural bass with detailed highs and clear mids. The f1's sound similar but noticeably lack bass and have slightly muffled highs (This is only in comparison to the V1's, they are quite clear in reality).
Overall, I love the V1's. Partnered with a relatively powerful amp, thick insulated wires and a decent audio source, they will become a beast that will last you almost decades. I think, if you are conscious about style- The V1's cabinet is rather large (they just about fit on my shelf, I will need to put them on brackets though). But as I said earlier, I love them and would never give them up (maybe until a new tannoy range appear).

I have been looking for a pair of affordable speakers for a secondary hifi system that lives in the dining room but was struggling to find anything that would give a real boost in performance without breaking the bank. These were 5* reviewed on What HI-Fi at £160 and I had given them serious consideration at the time. Now selling for less than £100 and that is a bit of a bargain. I have long read reviews which bang on about 'wide soundstage' and 'separation'. Having read what the lab coats have had to say I have purchased various speakers for various systems over the years and, having stumped up the cash, persuaded myself that I can hear these things. Anyway, having seen these come down in price I took the plunge, disconnected the old Celestion 1s and stuck on a CD (remember those?). I actually did a double take and turned around to look behind me. Suddenly this system produces a sound I did not think it capable of - music that fills the room with instruments and voices coming at me from all directions. I have these on stands and even the bass response is really impressive. Couldn't be happier with these.

I'm delighted with the relaxed sound and since I haven't the time to put together the speaker stands I ordered separately, the V1s are presently resting on chairs! "Easy Positioning" is my summary of their performance. They have front ports, the sound is enjoyable no matter I wander around the room in front of the speakers, and they respond superbly to adjustment of tone controls and r/l balance on the amplifier.

Their great strength is they're not finicky about positioning and you can forget about all the diagrams in hi-fi mags that lay out a "listening triangle" in an uncluttered room and then experiment moving the speakers six inches to the left, then six inches backwards, and on and on, searching for audiophiles call the speakers' "sweet spot". With these, you're home free --- there are no requirements for any sweet spot with the V1s. It's easy to break them in by running them around the clock via subdued radio for a few days, and from then on, it's Satisfaction Express.

The V1s have rescued my terrible, irregular, cluttered up listening room and they deliver fine sound to my chair outside the listening triangle and two feet to the right of the right speaker. Yes, I'm outside the right speaker and 14 feet from the left speaker across the room. This is testimony to the outstanding capabilities of the V1s.

Of course after you install new speakers and break them in, the journey is not over. Then it's time to search for new interconnects and perhaps speaker cables, by mail order if necessary. This is crucial, not optional.

These are decent speakers at this price. But not quite as good as the reviews might have you believe.

They are a bit overbright and need to be carefully positioned to get the best of the base.
The midrange lacks definition compared to my Wharfedale 304 speakers (very old) and frequency separation is not the best
However they pack a punch, are highly compatible, look great and are not too big. At the current prices you cant go far wrong

Excellent speakers at an excellent price. Neat looking and fairly compact, yet they fill the dining room with a great sound. They are being used as a second set of speakers running from the hi-fi in the lounge.
They did not arrive on "guaranteed" date although this was not down to the seller but the actions of the courier service which, without explanation, kept the speakers on the van and so returned the package to the depot instead of delivering them! Amazon customer services came to the rescue and speakers delivered next day - quite unexpectedly as it was a Sunday. Would not hesitate to recommend the Tannoy Mercury VI speakers.
