a long search led me to these

By Paul Klimo

from Highland Park, IL

Comments about Tannoy Reveal 502:

There are a lot of monitors in the low end monitor range to look through. Lots of features to weigh. It still boils down to what they sound like. After a lot of research and a lot of time in Guitar Center listening rooms comparing sounds I came to these speakers. They just sounded best to me and fit my requirements and price range. Got them home and set them up, using the balanced connections between my Line 6 interface and the xlr inputs on the Tannoys. I used a cable for both speakers and not the 1/8" cable that comes with the speaker. They sounded great at home also. I did not experience the "hum" that the other reviewer experienced. I didn't hear that "hum" in the GC listening room either. I am very happy with these monitors while listening to music or going over my mixes. Give them a listen. They might be your answer also !

great sound, IF you can handle the rediculous noise floor


from PHX, AZ

Comments about Tannoy Reveal 502:

sure wish these wouldn't have a VERY audible background buzz to them, because they sound great otherwise. The BG noise is about 10X louder than my Reveal 601's, and yes, I know what I'm doing.It's not my system or power conditioner. TEST them in a quiet space before buying, and compare to other speakers on the shelf at GC.

Great monitors for film or television editing.

By Kim

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Tannoy Reveal 502:

I am a narrative television editor and was looking for monitors for an edit suite i was building to work from home. I asked some of my colleagues and they suggested I check out the tannoy line because they were the best speakers I could get for the money. Since i was building the system with my own money cost was a factor. I went to the guitar center to check out what they had and landed on the 502's. I matched them with other 5 and 6 inch speakers in the store and these just won me over right off the bat. They had plenty of bottom end unlike some of the other models and overall just had a nice warm tone. Picked up a pair and hooked them up to my new system. Wow these things are great. I have not missed a beat between working at the office and working from home. Dialogue is crisp and I feel like I am getting the most out of every take. And the music editing wonderful. I am getting the full range out of every cue I get from the composer and my full mix of dialogue and music is better than ever. Didn't have any problems with "hum" like some of the others. Extremely happy with this purchase and would recommend them to anyone working in film or tv looking for studio monitors.

I'm very happy with these super clear monitors

By Tony

from Thousand Oaks, CA

Comments about Tannoy Reveal 502:

I've been looking for a handy sized pair of powered monitors for remote laptop recording situations, and also for a second station at my studio. I currently use a custom made pair of Black Beauties that aren't available on the market and wanted to find something that came as close to them as possible. I found the 502's to be the best sounding in the listening room at Guitar Center and was very pleased after listening for a few hours in my studio. One of the best features is the EQ control. With the high end cut in place, they not only come dead close to my bigger monitors but actually sound clearer. The 502's have a very clear sound (definition in the midrange) with a balanced low end. Without the high EQ cut they would probably be little on the bright side to me in my particular room. And that's the key to it. Being able to dial in the right amount of high EQ for every acoustic situation. Now I'm even thinking of using them as my main monitors. As far as the reports or "buzz" I didn't hear that in the listening room and I don't hear it on the pair I bought. In fact they are very quiet. And I do have older ears, but I've preserved my hearing and know what to listen for and how to test for it. Don't know, but it might have to do with proximity to other equipment. Can't wait to plug my Pono player into them!

      Loved them, but returned them

      By Benton

      from undisclosed

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Tannoy Reveal 502:

      I really loved the Tannoy Reveal 502. I purchased 2 brand new for GC. The monitor is solid, and has a lot of ways to get sound out and in (unbalanced, balanced, 3.5 inch). They give you a true representation of what you need to hear when you're mixing, monitoring, sound designing, etc.
      Really wish I could of kept them but there was always this inherent noise/hiss/hum being produced by them. I read online that this is common with this brand and it could be because the amplifier was designed poorly. I even bought a power conditioner to see if that would at least dampen that noise/hiss/hum and to no avail. At first it was annoying, but later I got used to it and didn't mind it even though it was irritating.
      Ultimately, I ended up returning them and grabbing a pair of Yamaha HS5's. If you're doing music production, sound engineering, media creation, etc., then these are really good monitors so thats why I gave them 4 stars. But that noise/hiss/hum could make these great sounding monitors easily a 2 star purchase. Hope this review helps.
