Over forty-five years on from the introduction of the world famous Monitor Gold Dual Concentric™ driver, Tannoy has launched a new benchmark loudspeaker range; the Prestige Gold Reference. This major upgrade to the entire Prestige SE series of loudspeakers marks another significant chapter in Tannoy’s illustrious history. Gold Reference (GR) further refines the Dual Concentric™ driver concept, brings cutting edge materials and engineering technologies to the Prestige range and leverages the sonic benefits of Deep Cryogenic Treatment. The result is a captivating and unique range of loudspeakers that further improves and refines the world-renowned acoustic excellence of Tannoy’s Prestige range.
Stirling Gold Reference is the first step into the heritage and performance of the Tannoy Prestige GR series. This compact floorstanding loudspeaker is rich with the timeless styling, bespoke cabinetry and the truly engaging performance from its new Dual Concentric Gold Reference driver that can trace its history back to 1967. Mating a treated paper pulp cone with a concentrically mounted 25mm (1.00”) aluminium alloy tweeter with Tulip Waveguide, the Stirling’s 250mm (10.00”) Dual offers pure point source musical articulation and outstanding dynamics.
Conveying all the power and musical articulation of the new Gold Reference Dual Concentric driver yet housed in a more compact 100 litre cabinet, Turnberry GR brings Prestige performance to smaller rooms. The 250 mm (10.00”) Gold Reference Dual, unique to the Turnberry GR, uses a new paper pulp cone material with HE twin roll fabric surround and 1.3 in aluminium-magnesium alloy dome tweeter with Tulip WaveGuide. The low frequency cone is fitted with a new 50 mm (2.00”) edge wound voice coil. This latest evolution of the 250 mm (10.00”) Dual brings an even more thrilling and dynamic performance than its well-regarded predecessor.
Tannoy’s timeless Kensington Gold Reference continues the marque’s heritage of blending time-honoured values with cutting edge performance. Its bold cabinet of finest mahogany plywood is extensively braced to house Tannoy’s flagship 250mm (10.00”) Gold Reference Dual Concentric™ driver. It’s high-efficiency compression driver with 50mm (2.00”) heat-treated dome, Alnico motor system and new, stiffer cone materials create outstanding dynamics, spacious sound staging and exceptional musical articulation.
The Canterbury Gold Reference is designed for those who demand the power and passion of the 380mm (15.00”) Gold Reference Dual Concentric™ driver yet require a more compact loudspeaker than the magnificent Westminster Royal GR. The new 15in Gold Reference driver is Tannoy’s most powerful and articulate Dual to date, boasting an incredible 600 watt peak power handling and offering over 96dB efficiency in the 235 litre Canterbury GR cabinet.
