The Tannoy Canterbury GR is the model up from the Yorkminster SE, standing at just over a metre high with a beautiful oiled walnut veneer exterior, they are audiophile loudspeakers undoubtedly destined to become true family heirlooms. Beautifully finished in walnut.
The 15” version of the Tannoy Dual Concentric drive unit in the Canterbury SE is equipped with an Alcomax 3 magnet system and the Tannoy PepperPot WaveGuide to further enhance the point source symmetrical dispersion properties of the driver. Acoustically this speaker delivers a superbly dynamic overall presentation with fast, accurate bass, fluid and open midrange and clean, spacious high frequencies - an exceptionally involving performance.
With such impressive performance available the useful addition of a Variable Distributed Port System allows low frequency output to be tuned to suit any room dimension. Careful consideration has been given to the precise layout of all the Prestige crossovers in order to minimise inter-component coupling and they are positioned well away from the driver to avoid any detrimental magnetic field effects.
Birch ply panels and a complex internal bracing structure create an exceptionally substantial enclosure. The timeless beauty of the oiled walnut veneer exterior finish, with its hand selected burr walnut inlays and solid walnut mouldings, ensures that these audiophile loudspeakers will integrate with any high quality furnishing.
