Bottom Line:   
These speakers are truly wunderfull. I have had many speakers over the years and i can say thats the Tannoy D700 are the best allrounders i have had. True, they are very unforgiving with poor sources. And they need some space to breath (about 1 meter arond).But i have these speakers for 10 years now and they will never go!
I have them paired to a lot of amplifiers. The best results you get with a tube amplifier. But with a good clean solid state the results are very close.
The can produce al kind of music and the first thing that pops in is a live feeling, if you are realy there with the performers.
In the second hand market the D700 are easily to find (in holland that is).
The quality is spot on and very beautiful (wav factor?)
Anyway you cant go wrong with these speakers.
Just listen, hook them up to a good amplifier and enjoy it!

Bottom Line:   
If you are just about to buy a pair of these speakers you have to be sure your amplifiers and source are up to the job of driving them with power and quality. I think they would be unforgiving with buget hi-fi. Careful matching is required.
However if you have a audiophile quality system that is smooth and natural sounding these Tannoys are a winner.
I have owned and heard over the years probably hundreds of speakers and these speakers rank in the top 5! They are the best pair of speakers i have owned. I heard a pair of Linn active floorstanders at a show once. These things were £11000 each and magical, but I have to say I am enjoying my music as much as I did that day listening to Dark Side Of The Moon on this amazing Linn system at the show.
This is my first time with dual-concentric speakers. They do take a bit of getting used to. But when you do and you have spent a few days finding their best position in your listening room they come into their own. Use a wall to get the best bass response, sit slightly further away from them as they are apart and prepare to be gobsmacked! It's the way they image. 3D is the best way to desrcibe it. If you get their postion right they simply vanish. Voices and instruments hang in the air and it's like you are surrounded in their sound. Even movies sound amazing. I have had the best of home theatre 5.1 and so on, and good as it is the Tannoys in a stereo set is what i prefer. Getting back to music. Alive, real, exciting, dynamic, captivating.... need i go on? I spend hour after hour listening to them, addictive! All this aside, they look good too. The build quality is top notch. They are heavy. It takes two people to carry one of them. They are solid and sound solid.
I'm running them with a Ear V20 tube amp, i think there are reviews on this site for it. They are perfect for each other, good match. Enough said.

Bottom Line:   
Bought the latest series 11 model in american cherry and have been using them now for 6 months. they are the 2nd pair of these awesome speakers I have owned over the years, and have now replaced a pair of b&w 801nautilus with them when i decided to downsize my set up. (the 801s were utterly brilliant!)

I also have a pair of tannoy st50 suopertweeters and rel stadium 11 subwoofer to compliment the speakers.

Driven by my krell kav300il the sound produced by these speakers is abolutely awesome! Full range, neutral and real life with tremendous slam when required
(even at low volume) I would encourage anyone seeking a quality speaker to seek out a pair of d700 if you can find a pair - you will not be dissappointed.

I can honestly say a that my current set up (together with the supertweeters and subwoofer) sounds as good as any as I have owned and heard at any price!

The only criteria is they need a a quality solid state amp with plenty of current to grip the drive unIts

Tremendous speakers. You must connect them on a good heavy 'musical' amplifier. I have no speaker heard in this price range that sound so beautiful in bass They are not too large!
