Simon, Thetford Audio professional

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
These speakers are fantastic - especially for the price. Yes they're a bit big (Twin Towers) and they do sound better 20 cm off the wall 1.5 mtr apart. I'm hearing sounds from music collection never heard before!!

As First Touch with ears they are amazing.

Gary , North Wales Pop, rock or dance music

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Partnered to the right amp (Marantz PM6004 in my case), these speakers offer astounding levels of clarity, pace, and attack.
From the pounding guitar rhythms of Frank Marino's live version of He's Calling, to the technoRock beats of Talk Talks 'My Foolish Friend', and even the silky smooth tones of Roxy Musics 'Avalon' - All are presented with no let up in quality and timing.
The soundstage they create simply cant be matched anywhere else in this price range.
Outstanding value for money!
Bad points:
They are very big. Looking a bit like scale replica's of the twin towers, they need plenty of room to flex their considerable acoustic muscle.
Just bin the sofa and you're sorted!

Nigel, Edinburgh Classical music lover

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good sound
Bad points:
Airlock 4mm banana plugs very tight, really too tight a fit, need excessive force. I tried them on more than one pair of V4 also a different make of plugs which were even more difficult. I asked Tannoy about it, they said plugs are not meant to go all the way in and the guy in Richer Sounds managed that with a lot of force!

Manufacturer's Description

The Mercury V4 is an impressive floor standing loudspeaker capable of huge scale dynamics and highly detailed top end articulation. Featuring two potent 165mm (6.5") mid/bass drivers, the V4 is a high-impact design delivering an authoritative performance with power and passion.

The new ultra light Mercury mid/bass cones give the V4 a speed and delicacy rarely found in budget floor-standing designs while comprehensive upgrades from previous Mercury generations ensures the V4 leads the field. Revised cabinet bracing, silver plated wiring and enhanced Differential Material Technology (DMT) damping on the HF capacitors lead to a greater refinement across the audio-band and an even more involving performance.

The new Mercury V soft dome tweeter is common to the entire Mercury V range for seamless consistency and all round integration in multi-channel systems. Engineered to tolerances generally found on much more costly loudspeaker designs, the new tweeter gives the V4 remarkable top end extension and a natural, spacious sound.

High output levels and an easy to drive load make the Mercury V4 suitable for a wide range of home entertainment amplifiers and applications. At the front of a multi-channel home theatre system the V4’s deliver adrenaline fuelled movie action like no other loudspeaker at the price. Yet the Mercury V4 is also an exceptional two channel stereo system for larger rooms, where its authority of presentation is complimented by the detail and accuracy of the mid range and high frequencies.

To cater for both modern and more traditional décor, Mercury V1 is available in either sugar maple or dark walnut finish.
