Tannoy Turnberry GR

Recommended Posts

Hi Mates

Greetings..

Planning to buy Tannoy Turnberry GR Speakers for my Accuphase E470. Anybody Experienced in this combo?

If so.. Please share your thoughts. Harbeth is mostly pairing but I love the style of Tannoy’s even if that’s secondary.  Sound quality, Clarity .. Tone.. Details all are important to me :)

a quick read of a review on Hifi Pig magazine on the net suggests the speakers a " amp fussy", so i would say an audition would be essential to form your own opinion

I'm interested to hear people's opinions on these too as I've had thoughts of pairing these with a Weston tube amp. Class A Audio in Melbourne sell them though I haven't been in to audition yet. Harbeth is another brand I have been looking closely at.

i'm sure the Weston amp would do the Tannoys justice

When I first met Earle years ago to discuss an amp build he was doing for me he had one of his creations hooked up to some vintage Tannoys ( could’ve been Cheviots or Arden’s) in his loft listening room. The sound was sh....t hot! As far as the Accuphase goes.....Kev at Class A likes to audition the Tannoys with ‘Phase’ gear. I think Tannoys are wonderful speakers can’t go wrong there.

Using Tannoy Stirlings and Leben Cs600 valve amp, works well, so I would say any valve amp even low powered should be okay, they are around 93db. As far as the Accuphase amps go, my understanding is they also match well with Tannoys. Their are quite a few both valve and SS amps which work well with these speakers . As for 'Phase' gear, I would take no notice of what Class A audio says, regradless of their selling Tannoy speakers check the actual Tannoy website first  and some research via the web, then make up your mind. Then it's up to you.

This "I would take no notice of what Class A audio says "
pretty harsh imo
they make a living selling Accuphase and to aid this have chosen Tannoy as a synergistic match and vise versa. You will find very few speaker manufacturer willing to limit their sales to owners of certain amplifier ( Harbeth for instance totally refute that any particular brand amp has any synergy with their product.)
The dealers have and have had a wide range of combinations to experiment with and are not just saying something works but demonstrating it.
ps. have no affiliation with Class A and never dealt with them
pps. believe the OP is in the far East and not easily able to audition

My suggestion is to try your accuphase on the Tannoys with your source or similar gear before you buy them.  I have Ardens and many other speakers but generally found valves more to my taste for them.  I have found for my taste there is a synergy between amplifiers and speakers and almost everything else systemwise in hi fi.  Matching a system for me is the difficult part which takes time even with careful selection of components but it's a lot of fun.

      Greetings
      I have no demo facility in Kuwait, even though I have almost finalized my speaker upgrade from B&W 683 s2 to Turnberry GR for my Accuphase E/470.
       
      Hope it will give me a significant improvement in sound quality. So far I couldn’t find any users of this combo .
      Any comments .. appreciated.
       
      regards
      Pradeep
