The Gold Reference GRF is a new permanent offering to the TANNOY Prestige range, 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. Music makes the world go round, and the GRF offers the ultimate audio experience!
Powerful and Articulate
The GRF’s 12" Dual Concentric technology with its signature PepperPot WaveGuide, Alnico motor system and HF compression driver delivers a superbly dynamic overall presentation with fast, accurate bass and a fluidly open midrange. With over 90 years of engineering excellence, the TANNOY GRF driver boasts an incredible 560-Watts power handling, while offering over 95 dB efficiency.
Flawless Musical Reproduction
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-specification ICW ClarityCap MR capacitors, low-loss laminated core inductors and thick-film resistors. This enables the GRF to achieve unparalleled gains in resolution, and deliver a more natural, 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 GRF.
