    GOLDEN CIRCLE

    Once you step into the golden circle, it’s nearly impossible to escape. Why? Because you will hear your music and films like you have never heard them before. Our heritage speaker Monitor GOLD was launched all the way back in the 1980’s, and since then countless high-profile recording studios have used our speakers when mixing and/or mastering some of the most iconic albums and soundtracks in history. 

    Artists like Michael Jackson, Elton John, The Eagles, Billy Idol, Depeche Mode, Christina Aguilera, and soundtracks for films like Top Gun, Breakfast Club and Catch Me if You Can had Tannoy speakers as the final link in the signal chain in the studio. 

    Now, you can also have that legendary sound at home!

    EMBRACE THE WARMTH

    The SUPER GOLD 12 speakers feature 12” woofers that ensure warmth coupled with a detailed soundscape. They are a match made in heaven if you listen to Orchestral Music, Rock, Pop, Blues or Soul. That said, they are perfectly capable of generating goosebumps when you listen to Jazz, R’n’B, Heavy Metal or anything in between.

    DUAL CONCENTRIC PRECISION

    We invented the dual concentric speaker design in 1947, and it has been refined and improved continuously over the decades. With SUPER GOLD you get the very latest incarnation of this pristine design that has won critical acclaim over and over for nearly 70 years! 

    With our Dual Concentric design, the woofer and tweeter are literally merged together, which positions them on the exact same axis, giving you best-in-class phase coherence. Since the sound is coming from the same point, it is a true point-source imaging scenario, and adding to that a spherical wave front that ensures an extremely even dispersion both vertically and horizontally, the SUPER GOLD’s off-axis performance is breathtaking. 

    But what is the benefit when listening? You simply get a very wide and true sweetspot, which means that you don’t have to sit dead-center in front of the speakers to enjoy every single, subtle detail in the music. You can move around, or when you have company, everyone can enjoy listening even if they are not directly in front of the speakers.  

    Finally, we constantly refine and improve our dual concentric design, and today we use modern ferrite with copper demodulation rings and high flux magnetic circuit, which perform even better than the original 1970’s Alnico design.

    LISTENING FOR HOURS ON END

    SUPER GOLD passes on the sound that the artist and producer intended without artefacts. The goal was to create a truly neutral soundstage with zero sonic coloration, and as a result these speakers are very non-fatiguing, which means that you can not only get a full and rich listening experience from almost anywhere in the room, but also that you can listen for hours on end without wearing out your ears.

    YOU’RE THE CO-PRODUCER

    Sure, we have emphasized that SUPER GOLD is neutral and true to the how the artist wanted the music to sound. But some listening environments may benefit from a few minor adjustments. That is where you come in as the co-producer.

    We fitted an easily-accessible, two-way energy control system on the front of the speaker that allows you to take control and compensate in case your listening environment calls for slight adjustments.

    PLACE THEM ANYWHERE

    The front-firing bass ports reduces the problem with bass traps emerging if a speaker is placed close to a wall or in a corner. While we definitely find SUPER GOLD as pleasing to the eye as it is to the ear, we also respect that placing your floor speakers far from the wall is not for everyone.

    Well, the good news is that you can place them virtually anywhere you find meaningful in your living space – and regardless of where that may be, you’ll enjoy great sound.

    You could even recess them in a wall, which in fact is a very common way for main speakers to be mounted in professional recording studios.   

    GOLDEN LOOK. GOLDEN SOUND.

    The sound is paramount. But if you can make speakers that deliver divine sound appear both elegantly and naturally in any room, we see absolutely no reason to avoid doing so. The cabinet design has a classic touch, following the original Monitor GOLD design, as well as a few modern twists such as the gold-anodized aluminum adjustment panel, that make them blend in gracefully anywhere, yet standing out as a piece of genuinely designed and crafted furniture in a stylish American walnut that is sure to add a bit of magic to any space.

    Obviously, the cabinet design also serves an audible purpose. The cabinet’s high density makes it extremely rigid, which allows SUPER GOLD to control low frequency performance musically and with authority.
