This is the absolute top model speaker from TANNOY one of the world's most respected manufacturers over 90 years.
That an Audiophile can keep for life. Rare opportunity to buy this amazing speaker in brand new condition for way below its retail price. ($30,000.00)
“... excellent speakers that are detailed, integrated, dynamic and warm, and not many speakers can say that. ... And if you’re also looking for that traditional look that includes expertly-crafted woodwork and metalwork, these Tannoys are your speakers. Definitely include them on your list if you’re shopping in this price range. You can thank me later.”

You get the amazing authority of the 15 inch woofer without the imposing size and weight of the Westminsters.
Enter the dual concentric driver. The major advantage of the dual concentric design is that the low and high frequency sound radiation is generated on the same axes – both the vertical and horizontal axis and all the others in between – sending out a single integrated wavefront of multiple waves instead of waves from multiple locations. The high frequency driver mounted in the middle of the center pole of the bass driver is an exponential horn. In general, an exponential horn has an acoustic loading property that allows the speaker driver to remain evenly balanced in output level over its frequency range. Tannoy says that the new 15-inch Gold Reference bass driver is Tannoy’s most powerful and articulate Dual to date, offering over 96dB efficiency. It has a new fiber-enriched paper pulp cone material and the cone is terminated with a twin roll surround of impregnated fabric for improved damping characteristics. The crossover to the bass driver has also been redesigned.
There is plenty of information on the web about these speakers -- the latest GR version of the Canterbury is superior to the previous version as a result of several refinements.
