Tannoy's new Speakers the Tannoy Mercury 7.4 is out and What Hi-Fi has given their verdict
O ne Speakers to rule them all? - Tannoy's new Tannoy Mercury 7.4s are reviewed by What Hi-Fi. The Tannoy Mercury 7.4's price at the time of the review was £400. The venerable Speakers reviewer What Hi-Fi has given the Tannoy Mercury 7.4 just 2 stars.

■ Positive points were: Big sound for a small budget - Midrange relatively fast and agile.

■ The Tannoy Mercury 7.4's weaknesses were its: Dynamically flat - Timing could be better - Treble a touch unrefined - Bass needs more control.

What Hi-Fi summarises the Tannoy Mercury 7.4 as "It leaves us feeling rather down on the Mercury 7.4s. Compared to their bookshelf siblings, there are more flaws in the treble, which means they aren't quite as easy to listen to. Big rooms will benefit from their big sound, and if you're after a booming pair of speakers without a huge outlay you may find your head turned. Ultimately though, the Mercury 7.4s fail to deliver in too many places, and there are much better places to spend your money. Tannoy's own Eclipse 3s at half the price wouldn't be a bad place to start, which only goes to make this uncharacteristic misstep even more of a headscratcher.".
