Conveying all the power and musical articulation of the new Gold Reference Dual Concentric driver yet housed in a more compact 100 litre cabinet, Turnberry GR brings Prestige performance to smaller rooms. The 10in Gold Reference Dual, unique to the Turnberry GR, uses a new paper pulp cone material with HE twin roll fabric surround and 1.3in aluminium alloy dome tweeter with Tulip WaveGuide. Distributed Port loading ensure prodigiously deep LF response and dynamic scale that belies the Turnberry GR’s dimensions.

The hand-crafted plywood cabinet, finished in oiled real wood veneers and machined trim, is extensively braced to ensure low coloration and greater control.

Classic looks, contemporary materials and the power of the Gold Reference Dual ensure Turnberry GR is as aesthetically pleasing as it is musically engaging.
