Tannoy Prestige Loudspeakers for Hotels

In an ever-increasing luxury hotel market, it is more important than ever to make your establishment stand out from the crowd.  Investing in a high-calibre sound set-up will truly make your hotel sing, creating an opulent ambience that will keep guests coming for more. Only 5* speakers should be heard in a 5* hotel. Luckily, we have found the ideal sound solution: Tannoy’s Prestige Series.

Why introduce Tannoy Prestige into your hotel?

The Tannoy Prestige range undoubtedly adds an intriguing fixture and room-defining point of interest to any lounge, sitting room or larger lobby. If you want your space to be memorable, adding a pair of Tannoy Prestige speakers will provide a lasting impression on your guests.

Whatever type of music you choose to play, you can be assured that the speakers will enhance the sound quality to truly set the scene for your space. Whether you choose to play classical music, light jazz or chamber music through these speakers, the atmosphere, ambience and character of your room will be richly enhanced.

If you choose to begin your Tannoy Prestige journey with Audio Affair, you can enjoy tailored made playlists on an included iPad. We can curate the playlists according to the needs of your hotel, so whether you need some ‘Friday Evening Jazz’ or songs for a ‘Rainy Day’, we will ensure that the music and speakers perfectly align to create an unforgettable ambience.

The decision to invest in the Tannoy Prestige series should be seen as akin to buying a period-correct antique piece of furniture that will enhance the aesthetic of your hotel, rather than a standard piece of audio equipment. Tannoy has been crafting loudspeakers for over 90 years and the Tannoy Prestige series marks the pinnacle of their skill and craftsmanship. To put it simply, this series offers the finest traditionally designed heritage speakers in the world.

The vintage appeal and traditional craftsmanship of the Prestige series belie its cutting-edge acoustic technology. The Tannoy Prestige series combines the beauty of handcrafted design with the superior sound performance of modern and innovative technology.

Despite the size and high-performance of the Prestige range, it is brilliantly flexible to install. These speakers can be supplied with a hidden control system or a visible ‘vintage system’ within a locked, matching glass fronted cabinet. In most cases, a hidden control system is preferred, but whichever option you choose, the system can be integrated into an existing AV solution for music or into an easily controllable matching music source, for example, an iPad which we will include.

The Prestige series is available in a range of sizes, making it easy for you to choose based on your space needs. Our audio experts can offer bespoke advice to help provide you with the best audio solution for your hotel, so don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Illustrious Heritage

Ironically the word "Tannoy" is often used interchangeably to describe a PA (public address) system, but the speaker solution being supplied here is dramatically different to a PA or BGM (background music) solution and separate/unaffecting to your existing PA or BGM systems (although we expect you will not want to turn any BGM systems on once the Prestige speakers are installed!)

The Prestige Series forms the traditional heart and sound of Tannoy. A true British heritage brand, Tannoy is one of those few companies whose name has entered our common vocabulary. Tannoy’s place in the British imagination stretches back to its creation in London in 1926. Tannoy’s hold on the British consciousness was cemented when its own loudspeakers announced the end of the Second World War outside Buckingham Palace in 1945.

It is this regal quality that has seen the Prestige Series become a mainstay for Tannoy and has helped the range become shorthand for pioneering British audio design around the world. Like the monarchy itself, the Prestige Series has conserved its greatest features while being gently adapted to meet the needs of modern listeners. The Prestige Series brings a respected reputation and high-performance sound to your establishment. Let’s take a closer look at the Prestige Series and what it can offer your hotel.

Prestige Gold Reference (GR) Series

The long-running Prestige Series has reached its pinnacle with the Prestige Gold Reference Series. Offering a range of heights, each speaker showcases Tannoy’s emblematic Dual Concentric Driver and beautiful handcrafted cabinet with a luxurious wood finish for a beguiling mix of innovation and tradition. Let’s take a look at each model.

Stirling GR: It may be the entry level speaker in the range, but seeing as this is the Prestige range, this is no ordinary entry level model. Handcrafted from plywood, this model is the perfect introduction to the Prestige’s royal-tinged aesthetic.

Turnberry GR: A bigger version of the Stirling, the Turnberry also enjoys a powerful 10 inch gold reference dual concentric driver.

Kensington GR: Taller than its two younger brothers, this striking design showcases gorgeous walnut veneered plywood.

GRF: Tannoy's latest addition to the Prestige range, this model was built to celebrate Tannoy's 90th anniversary and combine the best in larger dual concentric driver performance in a cabinet that has a compact footprint.

Canterbury GR: Handcrafted from birch plywood with an exquisite oiled walnut veneer, this model is a more compact version of the flagship Westminster Royal and likewise is defined by its incredibly powerful 15 inch gold reference dual concentric driver.

Westminster Royal GR: Named in homage of Tannoy’s original loudspeaker system installed in the House of Commons, this model epitomises British class and style. Crafted from the finest birch plywood, its grand aesthetic and imposing size bring grandeur to the most decadent of rooms.

Bespoke, Handcrafted, Unique

With the Prestige Series, you receive unparalleled sound quality within a bespoke piece of handcrafted furniture. Each model in the Prestige Series is a work of artisanal craftsmanship, made in-house at Tannoy’s legendary Coatbridge site.  Every bespoke cabinet is crafted using traditional joinery techniques and oiled with real wood veneer and then finished with a lustrously gold trim and Tannoy’s iconic ‘lightning’ strike’ logo, to create a truly traditional yet opulent aesthetic. As beautifully crafted pieces of furniture, the speakers will enhance any lobby or restaurant area without being obtrusive. Stoically and understatedly British, you could say. Thought of as a piece of high-quality furniture in its own right, these boutique speakers are a wise investment for your hotel.
