The Gold Reference GRF is a new permanent offering by Tannoy to their acclaimed Prestige range to celebrate the company's 90th Anniversary. The name GRF comes from the initials of Guy R Fountain, who founded Tannoy in London in 1926 and they have been introduced to meet unprecedented demand from dealers and customers to continue the limited edition GRF-90, which sold out in record time. Skilfully handcrafted in the U.K., the GRF boasts the same exceptional components as the GRF-90, utilising a 300 mm (12") Gold Reference Dual Concentric driver, housed in a beautifully designed, oiled walnut cabinet.
The GRF’s 12" Dual Concentric technology with Tannoy's signature PepperPot WaveGuide, Alnico motor system and HF compression driver delivers a superbly powerful and articulate dynamic presentation with fast, accurate bass and a fluidly open midrange. The GRF driver boasts an incredible 560-Watts power handling, while offering over 95 dB efficiency. The crossover utilises extremely high quality components in a minimalist design that ensures the shortest possible signal path to the driver for flawless musical reproduction. Featuring Tannoy's ICW ClarityCap MR capacitors, low-loss laminated core inductors and thick-film resistors the GRFs effortlessly achieve unparalleled gains in resolution and deliver a wonderfully natural and cohesive sound.
In order to minimise unwanted resonance, the birch plywood cabinetry is extensively braced internally, and the twin rear ports are engineered to reduce low frequency turbulence. Meticulous hand finishing and time-honoured traditional craftsmanship are evident in the timeless beauty of the oiled walnut veneers and cabinet detail. Gold anodised machined metal trims, intricately detailed with the nostalgic lightning strike logo complement the overall stunning appearance of the GRFs.
As with the rest of the loudspeakers in the beautiful Prestige range, the GRFs guarantee a sophisticated and truly realistic musical sound characterised by finesse and texture for the ultimate audio experience!
