Once you step into the golden circle, it’s nearly impossible to escape. Why? Because you will hear your music and films like never before. Tannoy’s heritage speaker Monitor GOLD, launched back in the 1980s, has been a staple in countless high-profile recording studios for mixing and/or mastering some of the most iconic albums and soundtracks in history.
Artists such as Michael Jackson, Elton John, The Eagles, Billy Idol, Depeche Mode, Christina Aguilera, and soundtracks for films like Top Gun, Breakfast Club, and Catch Me if You Can, have all featured Tannoy speakers as the final link in the signal chain in the studio.
Now, Tannoy brings that legendary sound to your home.
The SUPER GOLD 15 speakers feature 15″ woofers dedicated to delivering epic and larger-than-life sound. They shine with any music style demanding massive and punchy lows, simultaneously maintaining a clear and detailed midrange and silky-smooth, delicious highs. Tannoy’s SUPER GOLD 15 speakers are particularly adept with modern R’n’B, Hip Hop, and specific Electronica and Rock genres. However, they will gracefully handle any other music type, ensuring enjoyable playback.
Dual Concentric Precision
Tannoy invented the dual concentric speaker design in 1947, and this innovative concept has undergone continuous refinement and improvement over the decades. The SUPER GOLD series represents the very latest evolution of this acclaimed design, which has consistently garnered critical acclaim for nearly 70 years.
In the Dual Concentric design of the SUPER GOLD speakers, the woofer and tweeter are ingeniously merged together. This unique configuration aligns them on the exact same axis, achieving best-in-class phase coherence. As a result of this design, the sound originates from a single point, creating a true point-source imaging scenario. This is further enhanced by a spherical wavefront, which ensures exceptionally even dispersion both vertically and horizontally, making the SUPER GOLD’s off-axis performance extraordinary.
The listening benefits of this design are significant. The SUPER GOLD speakers offer a very wide and accurate sweetspot, which means that enjoying every single, subtle detail in the music isn’t confined to sitting dead-center in front of the speakers. This flexibility allows movement around the room or enables everyone to enjoy the music, even if they are not directly in front of the speakers.
Continuously innovating, Tannoy has further refined the dual concentric design in the SUPER GOLD series. Today, these speakers incorporate modern ferrite with copper demodulation rings and a high flux magnetic circuit, surpassing even the original 1970s Alnico design in performance.
