5 out of 5 "Tannoy Cheviot"
I've been trying to upgrade my 20yr old Revel Performa F30's I started by bringing in Klipsch Forte iv's not even close like living with a large outspoken tweeter. Then it was the KEF R11 these were very nice but still didn't have the soundstage or the bass of the Revel's. So bring in Focal 936, very similar to the KEF's even more definition but didn't mustard up. Finally I got a recommendation to try the Tannoy Arden, but I could find a pair anywhere, so I ordered the smaller cousin Cheviot. These are so real with a very full soundstage, the vocal and mids are the best of any speaker I've had in the house. The bass is very accurate and full, still missing the very lowest octave but these are staying. Would highly recommend these speakers.
