music type Reggae, Soul, Classical , varied

want a good bass and detailed sound and can handle some higher volume when the wife is out :) and the mates are around

Tannoy Mercury F1 Custom
http://whathifi.com/Review/Tannoy-Mercury-F1-Custom/Monitor Audio BR1 bass might be a little lacking

[class="Apple-style-span"]Q Acoustics 2020[/class]

Mission MV4, cant find any reviews on them so its a maybe

I don't really Like Wharfedale even though they get good reviews

any help or advice from owners would be really appreciated.

BTW I do like Tannoy but dont know it the F1 will be any good

Try the Q Acoutics 1030i, currently in Richer Sounds for £120. Floorstanders incidentally, but a nice speaker for the money (were originally around £249 prior to the new 2000 series coming out).

The Roth Oli 2s are good for the money but I don't think they are for you and your music. I have a pair tucked away and they are very detailed but don't really do it at the bass end. I'd strike them off the list. I haven't heard the Oli 3s.

The Tannoys are excellent little speakers and will give you decent bass for their size. They would be my pick of that bunch, although the MA BR1s are also excellent.

yup, discount the Roth's for reggae. not their thing

For me it's either the Q acoustics or the Tannoys. If it was my vouchers then it would be the Tannoys.

A bargain indeed and beautifully put together, as is the norm for MA products.

The Br1 is a fantastic speaker, but in my opinion the Tannoys will do a better job for your music tastes.

Well i am a Tannoy fan and do have a pair of D300 in the loft waiting for the kids to leave home one day hopefully , it is now decision time, if they are like the tannoys of old like the 605 then that might just do it for me, and they are the same price.

I can't speak for the MA's but the Tannoy's are excellent speakers and are pretty amazing for what they can kick out and provide plenty of detail. I'd also lose the shelf and invest in some proper speaker stands; the difference is literally night and day.

Do the Br1s have a round bass, I know everyone is saying the Tannoys are good, but I have a gut feeling that they want cut it for me.
