Premium 200-Watt Bi-Amplified Nearfield Studio Reference Monitor with Proprietary 5" Dual Concentric Point Source Technology
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 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 5 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[trade] driver.

Tannoy Dual Concentric[trade]
At the heart of the GOLD 5's superb performance you will find an all-new iteration of a legendary and exclusive Tannoy Dual Concentric Driver Technology. With seven decades of refinement behind it, the Dual Concentric[trade] 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.

Point Source Tulip Waveguide
In nature, all sounds emanate from a single point in space. By centrally-locating the high frequency unit of the Dual Concentric configuration, GOLD 5 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.

Bi-Amplification Via Class-AB
Why Class-AB? The duty of any amplifier is to take a small input signal and turn it into a louder output that maintains the characteristics of the original signal, and to be large enough to meet the demands of the loudspeaker it drives. While Class-A amplifiers sound great at low volumes, they waste a tremendous amount of power that is lost as heat when asked to output hundreds of Watts. And even though Class-B amplifiers are much more efficient, they tend to bring a great deal of distortion to the mix. A Class-AB amplifier combines the linear performance of Class-A with the higher efficiency performance of Class-B, producing a much better amplifier design for loudspeakers used in critical listening environments.

Flexible Connectivity
GOLD 5 allows you to connect up to 2 audio sources simultaneously thanks to its continually-active XLR and TRS inputs, and assign Left or Right when connected to a 3.5mm TRS jack plug. Switchable intelligent signal sensing circuitry is included, ensuring that when your system is not in use, your monitors switch into an environmentally friendly, power-saving stand-by mode.
