The Tannoy GOLD 8 is a premium 300W nearfield studio reference monitor with a 8″ woofer. Its bi-amped design makes for accurate sound reproduction with outstanding definition. Its ultra-precise and neutral soundstage delivers non-fatiguing sound for extended listening sessions. Legendary Tannoy Dual Concentric driver technology provides class-leading phase coherence and point-source imaging. Front-firing bass port design allows for near-wall placement and ensures optimal low frequency performance. Next-generation 8″ Dual Concentric driver secures unrivalled musical articulation and outstanding dynamics. Its 1" titanium tweeter with Tulip waveguide produces detailed stereo image with widened sweet spot.
Whether you’re recording, editing, mixing, or mastering audio, a truly great studio reference monitor design needs to provide the most accurate, uncolored representation of your music as possible. Tannoy GOLD 8 nearfield reference monitors have been created to serve the demanding needs of professionals in recording, broadcast and post-production environments. Engineered to the highest standards and build quality, The GOLD 8 will impress you whether you’re a seasoned Tannoy user or just taking your first step up to a monitor system based on the legendary Dual Concentric driver.
Clearly, to build the best studio monitors you must start with the very best drivers. Tannoy’s reputation for excellence is built on the quality and performance of the speaker systems it builds. That’s why it continues to design and manufacture its own drivers. Tannoy has long held to a philosophical stand on crossover points, understanding the anomalous effects of any crossover network with respect to phase. Its monitor designs have always strived to minimize the number of crossover points that fall inside the critical response band. Reducing the number of crossover points reduces potential phase errors and creates a more natural and accurate device.
At the heart of the GOLD 8’s superb performance you will find an all-new iteration of the exclusive Tannoy Dual Concentric Driver Technology. With seven decades of refinement behind it, the Dual Concentric driver represents a near-perfect point source, preserving the tonal character and harmonic structure of program material as no discrete-driver system can. The benefits are immediately obvious with flat response, controlled dispersion and a wider sweet-spot in both the horizontal and vertical planes.
In nature, all sounds emanate from a single point in space. By centrally locating the high-frequency unit of the Dual Concentric configuration, GOLD 8 acoustically replicates the single point sound source, delivering exceptionally natural performance with an incredibly wide imaging sweet-spot. Delivery is further enhanced by the implementation of a highly-innovative point source Tulip Waveguide with symmetrical dispersion, which provides a broad soundstage with remarkably focused and accurate stereo imaging.
The ideal environment for listening is a room that is flat—neither too reflective, nor too absorptive. Since all rooms are not the same acoustically, your GOLD 8 comes equipped to function in a wide variety of environments. HF trim control, and a rear panel filter switch is provided to adapt the monitor’s low frequency characteristics for the effects of boundary conditions.
