System: Arcam Alpha 8SE cd player, Alpha 8R amp, Sony MDS-JE520 minidisc, Monster interconnects, Chord Company Odessey spkr cable.
I recently bought these spkrs to replace my Tannoy P10s - I upgraded two models to the P30 as they are currently being sold very cheap in the uk (rrp 630 ukp, bought for 299 ukp). I was very happy with the P10s but wanted more bass, hence my decision to get the P30s.

Performance is top-drawer, with the P30s producing a crisp clear top-end and a well controlled low-end. The placing of these spkrs is essential as they have a rearwards-firing port - near to the wall reduces the bass well for small rooms, whilst allowing the spkrs to breathe by placing them about 45cm from the wall fills the room with deep, gut wrenching bass. Warning though, this can be a bit too much if your room suffers acoustically.

I listening to the Linn Kan IIIs, B&W 602 Mk2s and the AE109s. Whilst the Linns had a better top end, the P30s have the best compromise with a good well-balanced sound throughout the range (40hz to 38khz / 10-150W). I am sure that there are better spkrs around, but for the price and general performance they are worthy of a highly recommended verdict.

4.5 stars if I could select.
