Amazing scale and impressive dynamic control are available from this slender three-way design, comprising the improved pair matched ribbon, twin 5.5" bass drivers and a 4" mid-range driver. With high overall efficiency, wide bandwidth and vanishingly low distortion, the Gold 200's are ready to be experienced.
Models share a trinity of enhancements including C-CAM Rigid Surface Technology (RST) bass cone; tighter production tolerances for their advanced C-CAM ribbon tweeters, and a smarter more functional grill design. Our new Gold range offers greater transparency, consistency and visual sophistication.
The Gold series ribbon is derived from the Platinum C-CAM ribbon transducer offering a consistently more open, transparent sound with a sense of greater detail and enhanced imaging. The ribbon’s fabulously efficient wideband design reproduces the authentic tonal character of frequencies beyond 60kHz.
Tuned by FEA tools, the Gold series bass units utilize an evolved version of the dimpled RST cone surface. It takes the form of a continuous radiating dish devoid of the central voice-coil aperture. Instead, a longer voice coil and larger motor sit behind the cone in a more efficient drive assembly, offering greater drive force, longer excursions and lower distortion, producing cleaner, more extended and accurate bass definition. Back-to-back listening tests have demonstrated that across all four stereo models, Gold sounds more open and dynamic, with a soundstage that is both taller and wider.
Single bolt-through driver fixings have the dual effect of improving cabinet rigidity while reducing vibration at the driver/cabinet interface. Drivers are mounted on a single tensioned through-bolt, which is secured to the back of the cabinet. The bolt acts as a rigid cabinet brace to reduce box coloration and removes the need for conventional driver fixing, effectively decoupling the driver and front baffle to eliminate a further source of unwanted resonance.
Each enclosure is rigid and curved in nature. The cabinet is aided by radial bracing and bolt-through driver fixings, which eliminate unwanted vibrations and internal standing waves. New Gold’s HiVe II reflex port is shaped to have the same effect on air flow as a gun barrel on a bullet. Rifled grooves inside the port help to accelerate the flow and reduce turbulence, so air moves in and out of the port efficiently for a faster more dynamic bass response.
The die-cast alloy base plinths of the floorstanding models and the dedicated ‘Gold’ speaker stand provide a solid foundation for superior acoustics, enhanced by hand-milled spikes. Non-slip rubber pads are supplied to protect wood floors.
Gold’s magnetically-fixed ‘floating’ cloth grill replaces the full-length metal grill of its Gold GX predecessor. On floor standing models, more of the cabinet’s luxurious grain-matched depth of finish is exposed and enhanced by a brushed aluminum badge.
Comprising high quality polypropylene lm capacitors, air core and laminated steel core inductors, individual driver crossovers are mounted on a dedicated panel accessible from the underside of each speaker. The adjacent speaker terminals are gold plated to maintain signal integrity and contact reliability. All Gold speakers are wired internally with Pure ow® Silver cable.
