KENSINGTON GR-BA

£11,149.00

Product description

Its bold cabinet of finest mahogany plywood is extensively braced to house TANNOY’s flagship 250 mm (10 inch) Gold Reference Dual Concentric driver. It’s high-efficiency compression driver with 50 mm (2 inch) heat-treated dome, Alnico motor system and new, stiffer cone materials create outstanding dynamics, spacious sound staging and exceptional musical articulation.

The flagship 250 mm (10 inch) Dual with its Alnico magnets, identified by its PepperPot Waveguide, is fitted with the latest TANNOY GR cone material, comprising a bespoke paper pulp infused with fibres to increase its rigidity. Combined with the new 50 mm (2 inch) aluminium-magnesium alloy cone, the Kensington GR Dual offers an expansive sound stage, extremely high power handling and class-leading musical communication. The Kensington GR is set to follow its predecessor models as being the bestselling Prestige loudspeaker for its outstanding performance, small footprint and elegant design.

All components and cabinets are still hand assembled in the time-honoured fashion to ensure that attention to detail and unique styling go hand in hand in maintaining the exclusive appeal of this highly respected and sought after loudspeaker.

​

The design comfortably complements any decor from ancient castle through to the cool, casual and contemporary. The only rules we absolutely adhere to when designing and crafting Prestige loudspeakers is to utilise the most up to date, no compromise, acoustic technologies and time-proven cabinet making skills ensuring these are probably the very best sounding loudspeakers you will find anywhere.
