Number three on Andrew's list of essentials for the home studio, in this blog post. Andrews says, "I think the 802s are the best monitors in their price range. In fact, they've replaced a pair I had which were significantly more expensive. The sound clarity is impressive, and the bass response is super solid. As an added bonus, I really like the Monitor Link feature which saves me from some cable-related annoyances."more
The Tannoy Reveal 402 is the next step in the line of professional Reveal Series studio monitors. The powered Reveal 402 monitor's perfectly matched integrated amplifier ensures maximum efficiency and removes any need for a separate power amp. Response is optimized for near-field operation, such as on a meter bridge or on a table on either side of your control surface. Tannoy puts an Independent gain control on the rear panel, along with an HF trim control to allow fine tuning. Reveal 402 brings 67 years of tried-and-true legendary Tannoy sound to your personal studio in an ultra-compact form factor with pristine audio quality and a truly remarkable feature set.
Big Monitor Sound, Ultra-Compact Design
Don't be fooled by Reveal 402's compact size. Decades of experience in loudspeaker design and tweaking is the foundation for creating Reveal 402. The result is a massive soundscape generated by the super-efficient 4" woofer and ultra-precise 3â?4" tweeter.
Expertly Voiced for Massive Sweet SpotCustom tweaked by Tannoy's in-house speaker guru, Dr. Paul Mills, the active cross-over filters of Reveal 402 have absolutely impeccable timing. This produces the ultimate sweet spot so that you can move around in your workspace without losing the stereo imaging of your mix - as well as invite people to sit in with you during mixing sessions.
Easy Setup Option with Aux Link - Cable Included
If you're anything like us, you're not only working on mixes but also listening to your favorite music! Reveal gives you the ultimate pathway for both. With the Aux Link, setting up has never been easier. Use the included mini jack cable to plug into your favorite music player and link your monitors for an instant stereo setup - no need for external interfaces.
You cannot buy any other great monitors for the price. Those monitors sounds really good, even thanks to the bass reflex structure. They don't play so loud, because the woofer saturates quickly on higher volumes, but if you have a really tiny studio, those maybe can be the best purchase for you.
I own a set of these a love the way they sound for being such an compact monitor,and I highly recommend these for small studio spaces unless you're using multiple sets of monitors your studio.
I first heard them in duo with a pair of Adam A7... they work good, less stereophonic comparing to the A7 but still a well definied sound. Using them with my keyboard i notice that they have a powerful tweeter... maybe too powerful, on the high frequencies it goes very loud, but you can solve it switching the incorporated Hi Cut switch.
