Bottom Line:   
I just noticed that the NFM series was underrepresented
in opinions here. This series, the studio monitor dual concentrics, are, with the Yamaha NS-10m, the most controversial of all studio monitoring tools. That is, people love them, people hate them, and people tend to hold that "if you don't agree with me, you have sh*t for ears"
I think, for instance, that Dynaudio BM6s have much more natural timbres, but I love the imaging of the Tannoys.
NFM series monitors are absolutely NOT fatiguing.
With concentric monitors, the "lobing" patterns due to driver frequency overlap is not a problem, so the actual crossover can have a more gentle slope. This adds to the spatial coherence fo the speaker. The DMT type cabinet (heavy, with synthetic baffle joints that are mechanically "lossy")
is an engineering marvel.

I Love the Tannoy NFM series and recommend it as an alternative to cheap and "smiley" contoured monitors.
You'll hear more of what's really on your master if you use
them, and work harder, even if one reason is they don't flatter the lower midrange.

Bottom Line:   
A jaw-droppingly accurate nearfield. A step up over the NSM-10's or KRK's.
