Tannoy has announced its new Reveal 402, 502 and 802 monitors. They tell us that this completely new line of active studio monitors is expertly voiced to bring a massive sweet spot to personal studios everywhere. They say that, now musicians can move around their workspace and share their mix with others – while maintaining a precision listening experience. Here's the full details in Tannoy's own words...

The new range consists of an ultra-compact 4-inch, a versatile 5-inch and an extremely powerful 8-inch model all of which offer several input options including Tannoy's AUX Link using the included 15' (5m) mini jack cable.

Each Reveal in this new range has been custom tweaked by Tannoy's in-house speaker legend, Dr. Paul Mills. He has produced absolutely impeccable timing in the crossover filters. This is the key behind the widened sweet spot, making it possible to maintain stereo imaging of the mix for musicians who are moving around in the studio or inviting others to sit in during mixing sessions.

Peter Jeppesen, Product Manager for Tannoy Studio told us, "We're extremely proud to be able to bring the legendary Tannoy sound to personal studios everywhere. With the versatility of the new range and the added AUX LINK feature, there's a Reveal for you no matter the size of your studio."

Tannoy has an impressive legacy in the studio monitoring world since 1947.  The new range of Reveal Studio Monitors draws upon these decades of experience in loudspeaker design to produce a truly unforgettable listening experience.
