Bottom Line:   
Having owned.a set of Tannoy M1s a number of years ago and having used various speakers from Mission and Wharefedale i bought a pair used MX2s off ebay at a pretty good price. Did i make a good choise ? You bet these speakers are really fantastic the sound quality for the money is second to none.Trust me you will not be diassapointed and of course being made by a Scottish company makes them even more special.Thet just play all types of music very well and do it in a very natural and realistic fashion full stop.

Bottom Line:   
Setup:
Yamaha RX-V740
Pioneer DV-360S now replaced by Philips DVP720SA
2,5 sqmm multi-stranded speaker cables (OFC)

I bought these after reading reviews which said they would probably be a good match for my Yamaha 740 receiver.

Having a pair of B&W 602 S2 from before I also had the chance to put the Tannoys on top of the 602's to do some A-B testing.

Right out of the box they sound great, and even though smaller than the 602's seemed to be more willing to play bass.

The sound also improved some further after a month or so of playing, to the point where I decided these were clearly better than the 602 S2's and deserved to be kept, while selling off the 602's.

The 602 is by no means a bad speaker, mind you, the treble being a bit sweeter, but overall it needs a bit more juice (volume) to bring out the best - which is not compatible with late night listening.

I also later bought the mXC centre speaker and this matches the mX2's exactly, being actually very good for both CD and home theatre use.

However I also discovered with the mX2's that they had even more bass in them than I thought. I didn't think a new DVD player would make that big a difference, but actually it did. The old player had no selection for type of speaker or frequency. The new DVD player I just bought had selection for Big or Small speakers. The Small=cutoff at 120 Hz and here the sound was not that different from the old DVD player. But setting the selection to Large (because the mX2 DO go a lot lower than 120 Hz) - whoa! what a difference! It totally revitalized the speakers in the bass region, so they now sound even bigger and more authorative. The amount of bass is almost incredible from a speaker this size (at least in this price range).

So that is a clear tip for anyone buying a DVD player now - check that it can be configured to output the low frequencies also, and does not cutoff at 80-120Hz for example. (Probably most relevant to check this for budget players).

So conclusion is that I'm very pleased with these speakers. Beautiful bass, accurate mid-range, good treble and overall a fine musicality. Do take care to mount them on standmounts or in "ear-height" - they clearly deserve good placement.

Another recommendation is to remove the foam-bungs, the speakers really "breathe" more easy without them.

Bottom Line:   
Bought this pair a month ago as my front. I would directly say that I've made the right decision in opting for Tannoy... I've been comparing it to other same-price-level brands but the tannoy seems to have an edge. Been playing music nighly an hour or two and it seems to deliver a relaxing none fatiguing reproduction, the vocals come alive, the instruments are in place... and the BEERs are ice-cold... ahhh this is life :) Sometimes its difficult to spot a gud product at the first time (been lucky i guess), a careful/thourough product research and comparison is very crucial especially if you're spending hard-earned cash. With the MX2, I think I have a slim room for an upgrade.

My Setup:
AVR: Onkyo TX-SR601
Front: MX2 (bi-wired)
Rear: MX1
Center: MXC
Sub: Velodyne VX10

Gud luck & enjoy.

Bottom Line:   
A bargain for the price. Great high and Mid range. Bass 7.5 out of 10, but then i'm using them without stands. Amazing clarity. I use them as my primary speakers and run them through Onkyo TXDS474 Reciever. I ultimately plan to use them as rear/surround speakers when ican afford floorstanding fronts.
