    Yes Paul has the STA25 MkV (mine is 35w, maybe Will's MkV is slightly more?)

    Depends on your perspective ... little and large pic had to be done.

    Well impressed by the bass on these from 'relatively' small boxes ...



    Have to say I'm well impressed by the sweet sound - and it's not a 'small' sound at all.

    Small change of perspective ... dug out some studio monitor isolation spongey things that tilt the speakers down towards the listener, far wider soundstage this way and less sound going straight into the carpet.

    Beginning to think these have gone unused for a long time they've been getting better and better as they've had a few hours on them.

    I've noticed the same with Tannoy purchases, not just Eatons. Some definitely 'come on song' after a bit of use. You may find they continue to improve with a few days more.

    I seem to have acquired a late Christmas present.

    Nice to meet you at last Tom. Thanks for the invite to take these off you.

    Tannoy and Radford STA25 - a match made in heaven.
