Hi there, I've had a pair of these speakers since about 1989; every time I think about replacing them I fail to find anything that I'm convinced I'd be as happy with. Everything else in my hi-fi set up has changed (amp, CD player), and the only components I've added are a DACmagic (for playing from my laptop) and a fairly cheap bass sub (also Tannoy). The Eclipses are still going strong and they deliver a warm rich sound - I love them!

I started out my recent re-exploration into hifi with some Tannoy F1's and was very impressed for the price, they improved considerably with some nice weighty stands. I defected for a short while to some Monitor Audio speakers and am now back to Tannoy in the form of some 611's, the company has a long history of producing really good loudspeakers.

Unless I could afford some 15" Dual Concentric Tannoys I can't see me upgrading for a long time.
