The Kensington GR-OW is a 2-way floorstanding loudspeaker designed specifically for large-sized rooms. This floorstanding high-end speaker stands out for its Dual Concentric driver technology, which ensures class-leading coherence and point-source imaging. The 10″ highly efficient driver of the Kensington GR-OW, notable for its 93 dB/Watt sensitivity and ability to handle up to 500 Watts peak power, is key to delivering dynamic and utmost realistic audio experiences.
Tannoy’s PepperPot WaveGuide, augmented by the Alnico magnet system, significantly enhances the symmetrical dispersion properties of the source. This feature of the Kensington GR-OW ensures a consistent and immersive sound field. The loudspeaker employs an aluminium-magnesium alloy diaphragm along with a Mylar surround compression driver, which are instrumental in delivering exceptional clarity and articulation, particularly in the high-frequency range.
The Kensington GR-OW isn’t just about sound; its handcrafted oiled walnut veneered cabinet with walnut inlays also makes it a visually stunning piece of furniture. This attention to aesthetics is matched by its internal components, such as capacitors, low loss laminated core inductors, and thick film resistors, which all contribute to a more natural and cohesive sound.
For those who prioritize signal integrity, the Kensington GR-OW features bi-wireable binding posts, enhancing signal transmission. Additionally, a fifth binding post is included for grounding, reducing radio frequency interference and thereby improving midrange clarity.
The construction of the Kensington GR-OW is robust, utilizing high-density birch ply and particle board to provide extreme rigidity, crucial for controlling low-frequency performance. Its Distributed Port system contributes to powerful and extended low-frequency output. The extensive use of bracing, incorporating Differential Materials Technology (DMT), effectively couples the drivers to the cabinets, ensuring an optimized audio performance.
Aesthetically, the Kensington GR-OW is complemented by a precision-machined gold anodised aluminium adjustment panel, adding a touch of elegance to the overall design. Lastly, to maintain its pristine condition, Tannoy provides a specially formulated Prestige wood wax, ensuring the Kensington GR-OW remains a timeless addition to any audiophile listening space.
