OVERVIEW

A refreshed design of the popular Reveal series monitors.

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 3⁄4" tweeter.

Expertly Voiced for Massive Sweet Spot
Custom 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.

    I purchased the Tannoy Reveal 402 speakers after demoing the Reveal 502, Yamaha HS5, and M Audio BX5a speakers. Both of the Tannoys outmatched the other two speakers by a wide margin, with a powerful, natural sound that revealed nuances lost with other speakers. I prefered the overall sound of the 502s - especially their deeper bass response - but they were a bit large for my editing desk so I went with the 402s.

    The 402s are a perfect fit for my video editing studio in terms of size and sound and are a huge upgrade from my previous speakers. In terms of bass response the 402s are at least as good, if not better, than the larger BX5a and HS5 monitors and the overall sound clarity is like FM radio vs. CD.

    The Tannoy 402 and 502 monitors are very close in price and I would strongly recommend the 502s if you have the space for them - especially for music production because the low bass response is significantly better.

    I'd pass on these

    Soilid, with a quality feel, but the sound was a thin midrange & moderate mid-bass. Better at louder volume, but I'm not interested in killing my hearing.

      Excellent audio for their size, and an overall great value. Great mid and high detail; good low-frequency extension, but a bit out of control in small to medium sized rooms when cranked; and they do get plenty loud for rooms of that size.

          Needed some bargain monitors with good output for my home studio. I'm not an 'audiophile', but these sound clear, present and represent the sound very accurately in my opinion.

            I saw these when they were the Deal Of The Day. I did some quick research around the net and found that they were very well reviewed. I really enjoy the clarity of sound they produce. I had heard a few complains that they were noisy, but that has not been the case for me. I'm not an audiophile type, just a home-recording musician. Are these world-class? Of course not! But for the price they provide excellent quality and LOUD and CLEAR sound.

            These sound incrediable for their compact size. I heard nuances in my mixes that I never heard before.The low end is very clear and well defined.You can trust what you hear.The only drawback is that by the time you have adjusted these monitors to your setup you will hear a slight hum you can back off the volume knob to make it go away but you will lose a ton of volume which will cause you to have to rebalance your system.

                As I look around the studio, I see JBL professional lines, small Mackie monitors, and a Presonus Eris 8 pair in another room. All are paired with matched subwoofers.

                These little Tannoy were startling - loud and accurate. Prefer them over the Mackie 5". Their sound is actually larger and definitely more accurate than the small Mackie. And the Mackie was always my small monitor choice prior.

                At restock and other sale prices, these small Tannoy speakers are a steal ! On a completely different topic, I can imagine these as small but accurate THEATER speakers - especially when used with a subwoofer.
